The 1990 Proceedings of the International Guild of Potion Masters did not detail the proposal, the first in seventy years, nor the bestowing, by unanimous outcry at the meeting, of the Marquise de Brinvilliers Award for Advancement of Poisoning Techniques.

Nor was the recipient informed; though alive and well and living in Continental Europe, her name was merely added to the Roll of Honour.

Quite. Um ... 'honour'? Or dis- ?

She was expelled in Third Year and was tutored by Karkaroff's grandmother.

'And how was she tutored, Grandmere?'

'Very, very carefully, my dear child.'
