Series of scaled drawings of the various leading members of Dumbledore's Army in Harry Potter

Dumbledore’s Army is the name given to the secret student group formed by Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, during their fifth year at Hogwarts. Hermione felt that the student body needed to act in response to the restricted teaching imposed by the Ministry of Magic’s High Inquisitor Dolores Umbridge, who was sent to Hogwarts to assess teaching standards.

Dumbledore’s Army, led by Harry, focused on practical Defense Against the Dark Arts training, giving members the opportunity to learn, practice and hone their defense spells. Dumbledore’s Army was eventually betrayed by Ravenclaw student Marietta Edgecombe and disbanded, but was later reformed by Neville Longbottom during the year of The Battle of Hogwarts.
