Ethel Mariah Lane (born 29 June, 1980) is a pureblood witch and the oldest daughter of Jared and Samantha Lane (née Mullins). She attended Hogwarts from 1991 to 1998, and was sorted into Slytherin House. She was usually a stoic person who hated being touched.

On October 31, 1981, just ten minutes after her younger sister Violet was born, Lord Voldemort attacked the family, killing Ethel's parents. The girls' grandparents, Alton and Melissa Lane, managed to get away with the infant Ethel and newborn Vi. Voldemort would murder James and Lily Potter ten minutes later.

Her only friend was fellow Slytherin Emilie Potter, Harry's younger twin sister. It turns out, she was conceived under a love potion, rendering her unable to feel love. It was Emilie's mission to teach her friend how.

Ethel did not join Dumbledore's Army, but secretly supported them from afar.
