Slightly altered from canon. Before she started attending Hogwarts, Pansy Parkinson was a nervous, half-closeted transgirl who was highly encouraged in her identity by Narcissa Malfoy when she noticed young Draco spending a lot of time with her. She never fully transitioned but every year an expensive enchantment gifted to her by the Malfoys shaped her more and more into the ideal partner for the high class aspirant that they were grooming Draco to be. Starting her third year she brewed her own potions that transformed her one remaining body area female for several days at a time. Very few at Hogwarts knew she was trans, and those who did gave it very little mind. Otherwise Pansy was every bit the little kiss ass who spent most of her time coddling and crushing on Draco and insulting anyone she thought he didn't like that she is in the novels. Post War Bio:
Pansy has had better days than what happened after the war. During the Battle of Hogwarts she snuck back in and helped many of the Death Eaters who fought for Voldemort arrive by disabling some of the shields around Hogwarts that allowed them to apprate in. Hermione caught her red handed, and a poorly timed comment about how Fred, Lavender, and the others who died would still be around if they had just turned over Harry like Pansy had suggested resulted in a broken nose and being dragged off in magical restraints.
Pansy's trial was a lot more dramatic than many people were expecting. Unlike many of the other Slytherins she was thoroughly unrepentant and uncooperative and refused to turn over any information. Through long veritaserum sessions it slowly came out that while Draco had been the figurehead for Voldemort at Hogwarts, she had been the one who did almost all of the real work. She kept the dark wizards in training organized, provided access to all parts of Hogwarts to some of Voldemort's darkest servants, and even had several Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff students under Imperius curses working for her.
She was sentenced to Azkaban and felt glorious as it happened, imagining herself following in the footsteps of her idol Bellatrix Lestrange. She wasn't surprised that Draco avoided sentence, clever guy that he was, and was sure he was going to break her out any day. Instead, when he came to visit her it seemed like he was actually sincerely remorseful and not only that informed her that they couldn't be together anymore due to his revelations about his sexuality. To say Pansy became emotional on being dumped would be a serious understatement. She screamed, she sobbed, she begged she tried to seduce, to blackmail, and everything in between but Draco was firm that their relationship was over.
Pansy's anger over this turned into resentment which she took out on the world at large. Despite her age she was considered one of Azkaban's more dangerous prisoners due to her ability to organize and manipulate and she spent a lot of her time with instructors finishing her schooling (hey, Azkaban is a nicer prison under Auror management!). She is, to a mix of chagrin and pride, the top rated student of the first ever graduating class of the Azkaban Reformatory Academy.
But that was only part of what got her out. Halfway through the first year of her stay in the prison, she was approached by Rita Skeeter, who managed to sneak in in her beetle form, and thoroughly interviewed about a new article she was writing. Pansy played along just like she always did with her favorite gossip columnist. A few months later Voldemort's Forgotten Victim
was published and picked up for nationwide distribution in many different journals.
The article portrayed Pansy as an innocent dupe, a victim of prejudice due to her transgender status (descriptions of how she was denied the potion she used to have a fully female form provoked more sympathy than anything else, while also informing the whole world that she was trans) and the backlash against pureblood families that Rita not so subtly suggested was worse than what the mixed bloods had ever experienced. She glossed over the hundreds of hours of evidence of Pansy's truly impressive evil machinations in favor of photos of young Pansy dressed in overalls down on her knees trying to work on her garden as a large Auror stood over her menacingly, testaments of how Pansy looked out her barred window every night dreaming that the man who had lured her into the dark world of Voldemort would come to save her. Draco got raked over the coals pretty hard for his "betrayal" of his former lover. Pansy became the poster child for unjust punishment seeking revenge rather than justice. Meanwhile the article gave Draco a lot of bad boy buzz that really helped launch his modeling career.
When she was up for parole, political pressure, popular sentiment led to her early release, under very strict parole. She moved back into her ancestral home with her parents, and proudly bore their signet ring again. She engaged in a brief affair with Oliver Wood, who had read the articles and found himself feeling sorry for her and greatly aroused, but as he slowly realized she was still rather stuck up and pining for Draco and he proved several times to be extremely rough in his tastes the relationship fell apart. Also it didn't seem to make Draco jealous at all (well, not of Oliver anyway), which had been the whole point from Pansy's end.
As part of her parole she must attend a weekly former Death Eater support group. Seeing Draco every week there is something that makes her rather uncomfortable as she still dreams of him turning to her, announcing what a fool he's been, and presenting a ring to her. She has gotten pretty good at not letting on and they are mostly friendly nowadays.
After a few years of this routine her parents passed away in a tragic dragon attack and she inherited their rather considerable estate. She was forced to auction off many of their old prize heirlooms as they contained too much dark magic for her to be around due to her parole, which infuriated her but ultimately made her richer. This included their ancestral estate which had so many old dark charms in it that the Aurors condemned it. Pansy brought a very nice little house in a magical ward of London with a large garden area and quiet and polite neighbors. She spends most of her free time there tending to her truly beautiful and impressive collection of rare flowers and exotic butterflies. Her enchantments leave it practically running itself. Unfortunately her security clearance with the Ministry is far too low to let her near anything poisonous or potentially lethal so she can't get a job with magical plants. While it is a very nice house, she finds it lonely and empty most of the time.
While she has the funds to live modestly for the rest of her life, Pansy has never been one to live modestly. She has just enough money to barely need a job to keep herself in a lavish lifestyle and so she went looking for well paying work that would accept a resume that had Azkaban listed under education. Pulling some strings was able to use her family connections to get a job with the Ministry. Even though it is the very definition of dead end. She is the receptionist for a division that never gets any visitors, as the Centaurs still refuse to acknowledge that a Liasion for their people exists. She spends most of her day sitting behind her desk reading about her more successful classmates in gossip magazines and hearing about other people getting promoted and brought up while she wastes away in a dead end job. Although the fact that she has a job with the ministry at all is enough to infuriate some of the more conservative good guys, she isn't likely to describe her job as a lucky one anytime soon. Still, it pays rather well and on top of her inheritance she is quite well off financially for a single lady.
Pansy is up for yearly parole review at which she can request to be let off, which has been denied every time. Many Aurors don't think she should ever have been let out at all and would sooner vote to throw her back in Azkaban than end her parole. She is viewed as not truly repentant (which is true) and still a threat (which probably isn't). The fact that she has been caught growing technically illegal plants and keeping illegal butterflies several times hasn't won her any favors either, although the "oh come on those laws are outdated, they're harmless" counter argument is not without merit.
About a year ago she was assigned a new Auror to be her parole officer. Pansy was stunned when she found out that the Boy Who Lived, the Chosen One, the famous Harry Potter was going to be knocking on her door doing surprise inspections any time he liked. At first she thought she was going to get tossed back in prison, but she soon realized that Harry was nowhere near as enthusiastic about his work as she was worried about. He wrote her up for her infractions but didn't go beyond that. At times the two almost became friendly with each other and talked about their lives and what they were going through, although it was very guarded. Pansy expressed great sympathy for Harry's failing marriage, and quickly learned that when she wore tight and small outfits around the Auror that he tended to more easily forget that he hadn't checked a certain room and when she put a hand on his leg to comfort him he would sometimes forget to mention the illegal plants he had found on that trip. She could never get away with anything serious, and most of the time the stuff he forgot to do was completely irrelevant as there was nothing illegal there anyway, but Pansy started to get a sick thrill out of teasing the poor Auror on his way down. She also realized he was one of the few constant social interactions with her life, and would be embarrassed to admit that she found herself looking forward to getting dolled up for his visits.
At least the very expensive beauty enchantments have all proved themselves worth the money. Pansy remains younger and sexier in appearance than many of her classmates. So at least she's got that going for her. If anyone would just glance her way to notice how pretty she is....Personality:
Halfway between bitter and self-righteous, reformed and rebellious, worker drone and queen bee. Very sensitive about her social status. Sorry for what an evil bitch she's been but more sorry she wasn't more successful at it. Still completely obsessed with Draco. Would probably be very happy if she could find someone to be subservient to the way she used to be with him. Sincere efforts to be nice are often thwarted by the simmering rage and frustration over all her bad decisions. She is obsessive over her appearance, viewing it as one of the few assets she has left.
