Muriel, Molly's aunt, is a great-aunt of the Weasley children. According to Ron, she is rude to just about everyone she meets. Harry first meets her in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during Bill and Fleur's wedding. She is described as having bloodshot eyes and a large, feathery, pink hat, making her look like a "badly tempered flamingo". She loans her beautiful goblin-made tiara to Fleur to wear. During the wedding, she starts an argument with Elphias Doge about Dumbledore's past and Rita Skeeter's "The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore". Muriel first provides her house for the Order of the Phoenix so that Order members can arrive there after taking Harry from the Dursleys'. Later in the book, all the Weasleys hide in her house because they are targeted for being blood traitors. Although she makes disparaging remarks about Hermione being a Muggle-born, there is no indication that she supports any notion of blood purity.
