Avela Lestrange (nee Garko) is a fan-character. She was a pure-blood witch,daughter of Jason Garko,a later on Ministry Official and Councilor and a Slytherin student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Avela was born into a Wizarding family, and is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Garko between November 1980. She became a trendy figure at the young age of four and was pushed into the public by her parents. By the age of six, she started exhibiting magical outbursts and was temporarily put under the care and surveillance of their house-keeper. Avela was never interested in Quidditch and developed a passion for literary arts, especially calligraphy and passed most of her time engaging in artistic writing.
In 1990, at the age of ten, Avela began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was one of the first to be sorted into Slytherin house. During her years at Hogwarts, she became friends with fellow Slytherins sharing her dormitory and also made a few enemies, including Pansy Parkinson who quickly developed a rivalry and jealousy towards Avela,and a Slytherin girl group called 'The Sneaky Snitches'.
In her fifth year, she lost her prefect badge and most of her reputation because of Ravenclaw student named Marietta Edgecombe who exposed her to some members of the Inquisitorial Squad. Avela later on discovered that Cho was also involved in exposing her and lost her long and close friendship with Cho Chang. In the middle of her fifth year, she received a letter from the Minister for Magic which stated she made more than three offenses under the Wizarding Law. She appeared just once and her case took over an hour. She was forced to give up her prefect badge and was only given a temporary exclusion of three days.
