Coming on Halloween: Rowling to publish new short story based on Harry Potter character

Fretting for costume ideas for Halloween? How about the Harry Potter character, Dolores Umbridge?

​There is, after all, no better way to celebrate a new JK Rowling story.

The Harry Potter creator announced on the Pottermore website that she has written a new story, which will be up on the site on Oct 31.

The story will feature Dolores Umbridge, a former Hogwarts professor who first appeared in the fifth Harry Potter book, published in 2003.

The new 1,700-word story will provide a back story about Umbridge's life.

Filled with new details, it will also include "Rowling's revealing first-person thoughts and reflections about the character," according to an updated posted on over the weekend.

The post added: "Umbridge is not only one of the most malicious Potter characters, she is the only person other than Lord Voldemort to leave a permanent physical scar on Harry."

You've been warned.
