Ginevra Molly "Ginny" Potter (née Weasley), born on 11 August,1981, was a pure-blood witch, the youngest of Arthur and Molly Weasley's seven children, and the first female to be born into theWeasley line for several generations. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992 to 1999 and was sorted into Gryffindor house. During her first year, she was possessed by the memory of Tom Riddle's sixteen-year-old self preserved in a diary and was forced to re-open the Chamber of Secrets, endangering the lives of many students, including herself.
