"D'you think I don't know what people call me behind my back? Fat Myrtle! Ugly Myrtle! Miserable, moaning, moping Myrtle!"

I'm Myrtle. I don't know why everyone says I moan. I just talk about my life what happens to me every day. And mostly it's bad things. :( Well, I'M DEAD! IT CAN'T GET MUCH WORSE THAN THIS, CAN IT!?

Name: Moaning Myrtle
Deathday: 1942, aged 14. (From the HP Lexicon)
Appearance: Squat, spotty, has lank mousey-brown hair and thick glasses.
History: Moaning Myrtle is a ghost who haunts a toilet in a girls' bathroom on the first floor of Hogwarts castle. Myrtle was a student at Hogwarts in 1942 when she was killed by the Basilisk from the Chamber of Secrets. She had been hiding in that bathroom because she was being teased by Olive Hornby. Then she heard someone come in and heard them talking. She realized it was a boy, so she opened her stall to tell him to get out of the girls' bathroom, only to find herself face to face with the basilisk. Myrtle decided to haunt Olive Hornby to make her pay for teasing her so much. She followed Olive around until the Ministry had to step in and stop her. So Myrtle went back to her toilet and moaned and cried and splashed water out whenever she felt particularly miserable. (From the HP Lexicon)
