- "And that shows how much tolerance you've got."
- — Tori to Lord Voldemort in 1997.
Astoria Greengrass (born January 14, 1982)goes by Tori, and contradictory to most people's first guess, she was Sorted into Hufflepuff.
It is assumed Tori lived a cushy life, being the daughter of rich ex-Death Eaters. She was forced to play with other kids in similar families, most of whom she considered to be brats.Somewhere in that time frame, she became interested in muggle culture.
- Tori boarded the Hogwarts Express, and shared a compartment with twins Marley and Fabian Gideon Prewett until her sister made her go visit the Slytherins Tori had spent her entire childhood with.
- Tori made quick friends with older students, Hannah Abbott, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Ernie Macmillian, Susan Bones, Megan Jones, and even Cedric Diggory. This caused her to get teased by most of the students in her year, except for Emily Crow.
- She was starting to become disinterested in her family, and more focused on her real friends at Hogwarts.
1994 Quidditch World Cup
- While Daphne and her parents cheered for Bulgaria, Tori supported Ireland, and hung out with Cedric Diggory. During the riot, she nearly got trampled if it weren't for Cedric's intervention.
Tori was very excited for the Triwizard Tournament. She wore a badge until Cedric asked her not to, to show her wild support. He even confided in her about the cheating, secrets she kept silent.
- "I'm starting to think you have a thing for me."
- — Tori to Draco Malfoy during the Yule Ball.
During the last challenge, she and her sister made a cheerleading outfit and supported him. Tori collapsed into a fit of depression the minute it was discovered that Cedric was dead.
She was quite unaware of her surroundings, unable to realize her long-time crush was carrying her back to her common room.
The next day, it was discovered that she was put in the will of Cedric Diggory, and inherited his broomstick.
The previous summer, she had been flying her broomstick, writing letters, or eating, nothing else. She was noted by her mother to hardly laugh or smile anymore.
Tori's mother wrote to Delores Umbridge, who she knew was going to be a professor that year, pleading for help.After a session that insulted Tori, she moved on. Meanwhile, knowing the tough time she was going through, the bullies left her alone. One, Demetria Swan, even made amends and became friends with her.
Agreeing that Umbridge was useless, all three were signing members of Dumbledore's Army, and attended all the meetings.
At the end of the year, Tori discovers that Umbridge was injured severely by the centaurs, enough to need a new kidney. Professor Sprout begged her to donate, as she was a match, and no one else would donate, due to Umbridge being a rather nasty person. However, Tori agreed to do it that summer.
- While Draco was bragging about being a Death Eater, Tori suspected immediately that he was hiding something, and that he wasn't pleased to be a Death Eater, her Legillimens starting to show.
- Throughout the year, she tried to comfort him. Right before the holidays, Tori got a makeover from Demetria Swan. On the way back to Hogwarts, she witnessed Katie Bell getting cursed. Tori stole a peek at the necklace, and realized that it was the same one Draco could've gotten. She confronted Draco in the bathroom, and was trying to help, until he told her he didn't need her. She spent the rest of the semester dodging him.
- Draco: "I don't need your help!"
- Tori: "Well, have you wondered why on Earth I'm trying to help you? How I see and know your better nature? I'm giving up on you."
- — Tori's confession of her feelings to Draco in 1996.
- The second day of break, Daphne and her got into a fight about Tori's friends and her taking Muggle Studies. It ended when Daphne threatened to reveal Tori's collection of muggle objects to her pureblood-maniac family, and Tori gave up on hiding it, before running outside.
- "Fine. Tell them. I don't care anymore. Make every part of me die inside. Go ahead. Go tattle."
- —Tori's realization that her life is falling apart.
- Tori: "Am I dead?"
- Cedric: "No."
- — Cedric explaining the Limbo to Tori in 1996.
- Pansy: "Look, Greengrass, I have dibs on Draco. He's been with me longer, and you should go find another Hufflepuff."
- Tori: "Hufflepuffs are much better any day. And honestly, I'm not sure where I stand with him. So ask Draco. Not me."
- — Pansy's threat to Tori in 1997.
- Afterwards, she was friendly with Draco, but didn't know where she stood, seeing as he still saw Pansy.
- One day, Tori was talking to Draco in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom, when he suspected someone was in there that wasn't supposed to be. He instructed her to hide in a bathroom stall, just as Harry Potter entered. She witnessed their duel, and followed Draco up to the hospital.
There, Tori interrogated Draco, even using Legillimens for the first time. Tori was about to confess she loved him until Pansy entered and Tori had to leave.
- Tori ran into Draco again during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, and paralyzed her. The spell wore off, and Tori defeated Fenir Greyback again. She then dueled her formerly incarcerated father, and almost won if it weren't for the use on the Cruciatus Curse.
Tori had spent the entire summer at Malfoy Manor, flirting with Draco, much to her father's dismay. She also recently had talked to her sister, and discovered that Daphne had shared her beliefs, but had hidden it all this time.
She had been chosen as the Hufflepuff Prefect, and had been chosen by a new wand, although she was still in possession of Geneva Ollivander's wand.
During the year, despite Draco's wishes, and her prefect status, she caused trouble for the Carrows, and even at Malfoy Manor, with Daphne's help. Tori also TPed and hexed Snape's office, with the help of Marley and some of her otter friends, especially prefects that were fed up with Draco's run of the show.
Daphne had hidden into the Room of Requirement with Neville Longbottom to hide from the Carrows. During the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, Tori blasted a door out of the way to help the prisoners escape, a feat that had not succeeded before. She quickly Apparated to the Hog's Head, and used the bar's secret passage to hide in the Room of Requirement, where her friends shortly joined her.
They snuck back into the Battle of Hogwarts, and survived, although their parents didn't. During the battle, she refused to kill anyone, but did knock many Death Eaters unconscious, including Remus Lupin's murderer, and even dueled with her love interest.
It is known she remained friends with Marley, Fabian, Emily, and Demetria, even visiting Emily and Fabian's wedding.
During the Quidditch World Cup of 2014, she was in VIP Box 2 with the rest of Dumbledore's Army. She had gotten married by that point to Draco, and had secured a well-paying job in the Committee of Experimental Charms.
She was even featured in Dumbledore's Army, the Dark Side of the Demob, where she memorably called Draco a jerk in the interview with Rita Skeeter (she had full permission to say this,seeing as he was before his sixth year).
Tori and Draco raised their two children, Scorpius and Cygnet to be good citizens, better than who they were raised to be as children.
Tori went with Cygnet to get her robes at Williams Outfitter, and nearly attacked Elizabeth Williams when she insulted her and her family, and subsequently got kicked out and banned them and the posterity from their stores.
In Ollivander's wand shop, Tori witnessed Geneva Ollivander come into the store, and gave her back her wand.
Before seeing Cyggie off for the first time, she gave her the Marie family necklace.
At the parent-teacher confrence, she voted to put Cyggie in second-year classes.
During winter break, at first, Tori didn't believe that Cyggie had resurrected her husband, but realized she was telling the truth through Legillimency.
- "I wish I could be as brave as you, Tori."
- —Daphne in 1997
Tori is considered very honest and open, and many people admire her for being her true sled, even when she thinks she's hiding her true self. Tori even believes that it's a crime to deny being yourself.
She'll be herself, but sometimes, this means throwing away protection others give everything to secure for her, especially during her fifth year.
- "You're such a better person than I could ever be."
- — Demetria in 1996 after learning that Tori donated a kidney to save Umbridge.
Tori shows her compassion and friendliness to everyone, even helping an eleven-year-old who dropped her books in Diagon Alley in her fifth year. She also offered to help Draco Malfoy, and tried her best to comfort him.
However, she does have trouble with making friends her age,and for a while got bullied until Cedric Diggory died and everyone realized how hard it was for her.
She has also shown to be very intelligent. Tori read over older muggle reading materials and Ollivander's paper on wands. She deducted that Draco was hiding the truth during her fourth year, almost immediately, and figured out he was behind Katie Bell's cursing for the same reason Harry Potter believed him to be the culprit, and knew instantly that if that were true (which Draco confirmed) that Ron Weasely was poisoned.
All in all, Tori has an integrity and nobility that everyone seems to recognize. She has some lying abilities, and has some Ravenclaw abilities, however, in the end, she had to choose between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor, and chose Hufflepuff, a house she always admired.
She has also been shown to be fiercely loyal, not ragging on Daphne, and not saying too many bad things (although she sees them) about Draco.
At first, she was a sweet, non-conformist, who could only be herself at Hogwarts. However, by her fifth year, Tori had turned into a pure-hearted warrior, and was now worthy of a wand that hadn't chosen her before.
Tori's straight red hair darkens to auburn by her fourth year, and by her fifth year, her eyes have chosen to be green rather than blue, like Daphne's.
Tori grows in height rather slowly, though, as she is only "tall enough to hug Draco without standing on tiptoe" at the end of her fifth year at Hogwarts.
She is also mentioned to be slender, and light-skinned. Her physique and main appearance resembles Kairi from Kingdom Hearts.Some scars still remain from her first encounter with Fenir Greyback.

- —Draco to Tori during her experience in the Limbo in 1996.
Tori's seen the good in him for a long time, and encourages him to be himself. She knows that he really doesn't want to be a Death Eater, and has faith in him being a good person.
Draco admired her bravery and honesty, and seemingly endless compassion, as bragged by Daphne. He set up a deal with Lord Voldemort in 1998 to protect Daphne and Tori, though it backfires when she tried to let Ollivander, Luna Lovegood, and Dean Thomas out of Malfoy Manor, and is nearly murdered personally by Lord Voldemort.
They really do care about each other, and are equals. Despite being in love, Tori doesn't fall for any tricks. She also isn't afraid to stand up to him, and duel for what she believes in.
Tori even has her own special gesture of public affection, putting her hand over where the Dark Mark was, and holding him by that, rather than wrists of hands. This is a symbol of embracing Draco's dark side, not just his better nature.

- Daphne: "You and me."

In 1998, the bond grew stronger when Daphne confessed her true feelings and beliefs, and helped the DA with their stunts and pranks.

Tori was however a bridesmaid at Hannah's wedding.
Justin Finch-FletchleyJustin originally had feelings for Tori and went out with her to the Yule Ball, but he remained in the friend-zone.
Tori was fascinated by his muggle life.
Marley met Tori on September 1, 1993, and was Sorted into Gryffindor. In 1995, they reconciled and were quite friendly, and chatted after they survived the Battle of Hogwarts.
Tori hid her true beliefs from her parents until she was fourteen, which differed greatly from their pureblood mania.
While her mother, Rhiannon, tried to support her, and still loved her, Galloran chose to disown Tori, a decision overridden by Daphne, the eldest and the eldest Greengrass left alive after the Battle of Hogwarts. Tori mourned her parents, despite that her father's love for her was gone.

- — Tori replying to Pansy's threats on the train in 1997.
Tori never liked Pansy Parkinson, often calling her a shallow brat. Tori grew up with Pansy in her childhood, but Pansy got along with Daphne's more cameleon nature, becoming a bad influence on Daphne that Tori despised.
In 1997, Pansy realized something had changed between Tori and Draco, and began threatening and insulting her, to which Tori would laugh and respond calmly, for she in some ways felt Draco was playing them both.
During the summer of 1997, Pansy wrote to Draco, demanding a choice between the two of them, which Draco shared with Tori, whom he chose.
Dolores UmbridgeProfessor Umbridge was written to by Rhiannon Greengrass, but sucked at the job she was given. Eventually, Tori wrote to her mother, to get Umbridge to stop recruiting her for her counseling session, as Tori was no longer depressed over Cedric Diggory's death.
Tori's not as close to Cygnet as she is with her father, but they still are obviously close, and Cygnet seems to have inherited her disposition towards Muggles and muggle-borns.
