Rowling reveals that the evil Hogwarts professor is based on someone from the author's real life. She describes the actual woman as someone “whom I disliked intensely on sight. The woman in question returned my antipathy with interest. Why we took against each other so instantly, heartily and (on my side, at least) irrationally, I honestly cannot say.”
New details were revealed surrounding the Harry Potter Universe including Dolores Umbridge being a half-blood.
Umbridge is also revealed to be a half-blood herself, the daughter of a wizard and a Muggle. This is noteworthy because Umbridge lies in the books and claims to be a pure-blood in order to bolster her own credentials. [via]
