Pansy was supposed to accompany Draco to the Yule Ball that Christmas, but instead he went with Samantha White.
She soon became good friends with fellow Slytherins Draco Malfoy, Samantha White, Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle.
Pansy was also popular with the girls; Millicent Bulstrode, Tracey Davis and Daphne Greengrass, acting as the group leader.
Both Pansy, Draco and Samantha were mean and powerful amongst their friends and used this to bully other students.
During Pansy's fourth year, Hogwarts hosted the Triwizard Tournament, a special wizarding event that attracted a lot of media attention.
Pansy was among the students who gave Daily Prophet journalist Rita Skeeter false information on Harry Potter, Rubeus Hagrid and Hermione Granger.
