“Then you should know, Potter, that Sybill Trelawney has predicted the death of one student a year since she arrived at this school. None of them has died yet. Seeing death omens is her favourite way of greeting a new class.”
Wait wait wait
so there was a theory bouncing around that Trelawney was actually scary accurate, right?

Havsmannen (the man of the sea) is a handsome young man who can be found wandering along shores in misty weather. He would seek out a lonely sailor’s wife and transform himself into her husband, which often resulted in the wife giving birth to a green-skinned child with gills and fin-like feet. As an apology, Havsmannen would give the sailor good winds and calm seas, ensuring that his boat never ran aground.
