Your guess is wrong (if what I've read is true) The character isn't particularly important in OOTP, but does become slightly more important in HBP (if I'm remembering correctly), by which time - I'm guessing - they would be awkward to introduce due to the circumstances. Does that even make sense?

But there are times when too little is included. Have you seen Eragon? It's like someone glanced at a synopsis of the story and decided to make the movie based on that.
