Spinks was a student who began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991, the same year as Harry Potter.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • On the student list shown by J. K. Rowling on Harry Potter and Me, Spinks appears to have originally been called Spungen, as the former name is squeezed in above the latter, which is crossed out. Spungen was the surname Rowling gave to Draco Malfoy in an early draft of Philosopher's Stone.[1] It is unknown if the Spinks on the class list was intended to be a separate character or was simply another surname Rowling considered for Draco.
