Supporting Harry Potter characters From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search The following are supporting characters in the Harry Potter series written by J. K. Rowling. Contents [hide] 1 The Dursleys 1.1 Vernon Dursley 1.2 Petunia Dursley 1.3 Dudley Dursley 1.4 Marge Dursley 2 Others 2.1 Bathilda Bagshot 2.2 Frank Bryce 2.3 Crabbe and Goyle 2.4 Gabrielle Delacour 2.5 Cedric Diggory 2.6 Gellert Grindelwald 2.7 Viktor Krum 2.8 Augusta Longbottom 2.9 Xenophilius Lovegood 2.10 Teddy Lupin 2.11 Narcissa Malfoy 2.12 Olympe Maxime 2.13 Cormac McLaggen 2.14 Auntie Muriel 2.15 Moaning Myrtle 2.16 Mr Ollivander 2.17 Pansy Parkinson 2.18 The Peverell brothers 2.19 Madam Rosmerta 2.20 Stan Shunpike 2.21 Rita Skeeter 2.22 Hepzibah Smith 2.23 Andromeda Tonks 2.24 Ted Tonks 2.25 Oliver Wood 2.26 The Muggle Prime Minister 2.27 The Weird Sisters 3 Grandchildren of the Weasley family 3.1 James Potter 3.2 Albus Potter 3.3 Lily Potter 3.4 Rose Weasley 3.5 Hugo Weasley 3.6 Victoire Weasley 3.7 Other children 4 References 5 See also  The Dursleys Fiona Shaw as Aunt Petunia, Harry Melling as Dudley, and Richard Griffiths as Uncle Vernon in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanThe Dursley family are Harry Potter's last living relatives. In order to ensure Harry's safety, Albus Dumbledore placed Harry when he was a baby in the Dursley's house under their care. The Dursleys live at Number 4, Privet Drive, Little Whinging in Surrey, England. They are all Muggles, and despise all things related to magic and the Wizarding World, including the Potters. The name "Dursley" derives from the small town in Gloucestershire, near to the birthplace of J. K. Rowling.  Vernon Dursley Vernon Dursley is the first character introduced in the Harry Potter series. He is Harry's uncle and is married to Petunia, Lily Potter's sister, and they have a son named Dudley. Vernon is described as a big, http://www.hoops227.com/youtube_harry_potter_and_the_half_blood_prince_227.html beefy man, with hardly any neck, and a large moustache. He is very much the head of his family, laying down most of the rules for Harry and doing most of the threatening, as well as spoiling his own son, Dudley. He is also the director of a drill-making company, Grunnings, and seems to be quite successful in his career. Uncle Vernon and his wife have grudgingly raised Harry from an early age. He and Petunia never informed Harry about the magical world, including how his parents died, and they told Harry that it was just a car accident, which is not true. http://www.hoops227.com/harry_potter_youtube.html Unlike Petunia, who proves to have a slight feeling of familial loyalty to Harry, Vernon seems to hate his nephew so much that in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, he is willing to throw him out of the house, knowing that doing so would put him in grave danger. In fact, while discussing the Dementor attack with Harry, Vernon actually hopes aloud that Harry will receive the death penalty. Vernon also has an aversion to imagination, http://www.hoops227.com/youtube_lebron_james_kobe_bryant_puppets_nike_mvp.html to any references to magic, and anything even slightly out of the ordinary— as in the first book, when Harry mentions dreaming about a flying motorcycle and Uncle Vernon responds by angrily bellowing that motorcycles do not fly, despite Harry's protests that it was only a dream. When the Dursleys decide to leave Privet Drive to go into hiding in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Vernon nearly shakes Harry's hand good-bye. However, due to his dislike of both Harry and magic overall, he refrains from doing so at the last second. It is implied that after their separation at the beginning of the seventh book, Uncle Vernon and Harry will never see each other again. Vernon is portrayed by British actor Richard Griffiths in the film series.  Petunia Dursley Petunia Dursley (née Evans), is Harry’s aunt and Lily Potter's sister. She is described as a blonde YouTube-Potter Puppet Pals in "The Vortex"
(changed to dark haired in the films), bony woman with a "rather horsey" face and a very long neck, and spends most of her time spying on her neighbors. Her eyes are large and pale, quite unlike her sister Lily's. Her whole family is made up of Muggles, except for Lily, a Muggle-born witch. According to Petunia, her parents were proud of having a witch in the family, but Petunia saw her sister as a freak. In fact, she was envious and resentful of Lily's magical abilities  and went so far as to write to Albus Dumbledore, pleading to be allowed to enter Hogwarts. Dumbledore gently denied her enrollment. Afterwards, Petunia grew cold towards the school and, by extension, towards the wizarding world in general. She had no contact with Lily after her marriage to James Potter and the birth of her nephew, Harry, though she did send the family a "horrible vase" that baby Harry broke while riding on his toy broom, a 1st birthday gift from Harry's godfather, Sirius Black. The gift echoes Harry's Dursley-sent Christmas presents, which are never pretty or welcome but do suggest some grudging sense of attachment or obligation. Petunia has more knowledge of the wizarding world than she is initially willing to admit. After the Dementors attack Harry and Dudley, Petunia states that she knows Dementors guard the wizard prison, Azkaban. When Harry and the rest of her family look at her strangely, she explains that she heard "that awful boy" telling Lily about them years ago. Harry assumes that the "awful boy" was his father, James, but in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, he learns via Severus Snape's memories that Snape was the boy in question and that both Lily and Petunia knew Snape when all three were children. After the Dursleys leave their home to go into hiding, it is implied that Harry never sees Petunia again. Before they leave, Petunia almost wishes Harry good luck, suggesting that she does feel a tiny sense of family attachment to her nephew; however her self-imposed hatred of Harry and magic prevent her from doing so, and she leaves without a word. Actress Fiona Shaw portrays Petunia in the films.  Dudley Dursley Dudley Dursley is the only child of Vernon and Petunia Dursley, and Harry's only cousin. He is quite an unlikable character. Described as a very large, blond (although his hair is brown in the films) boy, Dudley is generally given his way in almost everything, and shows the symptoms of a spoiled brat. A great bully, he leads a gang of thugs with whom he regularly beats up Harry and younger children on the flimsiest of excuses. The same year Harry starts at Hogwarts, Dudley is enrolled at his father's old private boarding school, Smeltings. In Philosopher's Stone, Dudley is given a pig's tail by Rubeus Hagrid, which has to be removed at a private hospital in London. In Goblet of Fire, he becomes wider than he is tall, and the Smeltings school nurse advises the Dursleys to put Dudley on a strict diet. During the summer when this diet is enforced, the Weasleys come to pick Harry up for the Quidditch World Cup, and Fred and George Weasley "accidentally" drop a magical Ton-Tongue Toffee which enlarges Dudley's tongue to four feet before his hysterical mother reluctantly allows Mr. Weasley to shrink it. In the fifth book two Dementors (sent by Dolores Umbridge) attack Dudley and Harry. Dudley collapses, and Harry uses the Patronus Charm to drive the dementors away from himself and his cousin. He half carries the shaken Dudley home, while Dudley is convinced that Harry used magic to draw the Dementors to them. After the confrontation, Harry wonders what sort of bad memories Dudley could have relived, as Dementors force people to relive their worst experiences. Rowling later revealed, in an online chat, that Dudley's worst fear was seeing himself for who he really was. The experience does, in fact, give Dudley a more favourable impression of Harry, as seen in Deathly Hallows, when Dudley is the only member of the family to accept Harry: he shakes his hand and thanks him for saving his soul from the Dementor attack, and shows some concern for him when the Dursleys left to go into hiding. In his appreciation of his cousin's belated gratitude, Harry says good-bye to him using Dudley's former gang name, "Big D". Rowling revealed on her website that many people have asked her to include an adult Dudley with a wizarding child in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows, and that she herself considered it, but decided upon reflection that any "latent wizarding genes would never survive contact with Uncle Vernon's DNA" and thus she did not do so. Rowling says that Harry and Dudley would stay on "Christmas Card" terms for the rest of their lives, and that Harry would take his family to visit Dudley's when they were in the neighbourhood, but it was something that James, Albus and Lily "would dread". However, Dudley's kids and Harry's occasionally would "get together while the adults sat in awkward silence". Dudley is portrayed by Harry Melling in the Harry Potter films.  Marge Dursley Marjorie "Marge" Dursley is Vernon's sister and is described as being just like him, a large woman with hardly any neck and even a bit of a moustache. Though she is not a blood relative of Harry, he has been forced to call her "Aunt Marge" throughout his whole life with the Dursleys. Marge lives in the country, where she breeds bulldogs. Because of this, she rarely visits Privet Drive, to Harry's great delight. However, each of her visits stands out in Harry's mind for her cruelty to him. Owing to Vernon and Petunia's beliefs, Aunt Marge believes that Harry is a horrible boy, and delights in insulting both him and his dead parents. Her most recent known visit was in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, when, after she insulted Harry's mother and father, an enraged Harry accidentally inflated her, thus causing her to resemble a floating balloon, a possible metaphor towards her being high on her own 'hot air'. She was later rescued, changed back to normal, and the Ministry of Magic modified her memory. She also appeared in a memory in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Harry being chased up a tree by one of Marge's bulldogs at age ten while the Dursleys laugh at him from the ground and Marge refuses to call the dog off. Pam Ferris appeared as Marge in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban  Others  Bathilda Bagshot Bathilda Bagshot is a noted historian, and author of the book A History of Magic. She lives in Godric's Hollow, and is an old family friend of Dumbledore, and also the Potters' neighbour. Gellert Grindelwald is her great-nephew, which is why he comes to live in Godric's Hollow after being expelled from Durmstrang. Bathilda is a major source of information for Rita Skeeter's biography of Dumbledore, who extracts this information under the influence of Veritaserum; it is possible her memory is also modified following the "interview". Harry decides to go to Godric's Hollow in order to get information from Bathilda, and because he thinks that Dumbledore entrusted her with Gryffindor's Sword. She dies before Harry's arrival in Godric's Hollow, possibly at the hand of Lord Voldemort, who enchants her decaying body to use as a disguise for his snake, Nagini to wait for Harry. The snake is then instructed to subdue Harry when he arrives in Bathilda's house looking for the sword until Voldemort himself can get there to finish him off.  Frank Bryce Frank Bryce is a reclusive World War II veteran who worked as the caretaker of the Riddle family mansion in Little Hangleton. In 1943 the Riddles were murdered by Tom Marvolo Riddle (later to become Lord Voldemort), and since Bryce had the keys to the large house where the deaths occurred, he was arrested by the local police and questioned in connection with the murders of the Riddle family. As there was lack of evidence (because the bodies were unmarked as the Killing Curse leaves no sign of violence or damage on the victims) the police could not prove that the Riddles had been murdered, and were forced to release Bryce. However, the community of Little Hangleton still believed Bryce to be guilty. As a result, he lived out the rest of his life as a pariah, isolated and living on the grounds of the Riddles' estate. In the beginning of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Voldemort secretly returns to the Riddle house. Bryce inadvertently finds himself overhearing Voldemort's plan to kill Harry, but the snake Nagini finds him and reveals his presence to Voldemort, who kills him almost immediately with the Avada Kedavra curse. He appears once more in the same book, during Harry and Voldemort's graveyard duel. The Priori Incantatem effect brings back an echo of Bryce from the tip of Voldemort's wand, and encourages Harry to keep fighting. Dumbledore states his belief in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that the murder of Bryce was used to create Voldemort's presumably sixth and final Horcrux, implanted in Nagini. However, Rowling later said Voldemort used the earlier murder of Bertha Jorkins for this. Eric Sykes appeared as Bryce in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.  Crabbe and Goyle Left to right: Goyle, Malfoy, Crabbe, and Pansy Parkinson from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanVincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle are Slytherin students in Harry's year; both of their fathers, Crabbe Sr and Goyle Sr are Death Eaters. Due to their size and strength, the pair act as Draco Malfoy's minions and serve to intimidate fellow students. Crabbe and Goyle are both brawn-over-brains type; they are entirely lacking in introspection or inquisitiveness. They seem unable to make up their own minds or to see things their own way. Nonetheless, Crabbe is depicted as slightly more intelligent than Goyle; in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, he is handpicked by Malfoy as his second in the Midnight Duel with Harry that never takes place. Crabbe and Goyle make their first and only appearance as new Slytherin Quidditch Beaters in the opening match against Gryffindor in their fifth year; after Harry catches the Snitch, Crabbe vents his frustration by purposely hitting a Bludger into Harry's back and knocking him off his broom, but receives the light punishment of writing lines. They do not return to the team the following term, as they regularly serve as Malfoy's lookouts during his forays into the Room of Requirement. After Malfoy leaves the school following the death of Dumbledore just before the end of the term, Crabbe and Goyle are left in a state of loneliness. The three of them are reunited in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Both of them speak for the first time, Crabbe's voice being described as "oddly soft for someone with his huge frame" and Goyle's simply as a grunt. Crabbe has sided with the Death Eaters with more conviction than either Goyle or Malfoy, and becomes increasingly independent of Malfoy, well aware of the Malfoy family's falling out of favour with Voldemort. The pair have developed into surprisingly powerful wizards. Crabbe and Goyle are mentioned as having excelled in inflicting the Cruciatus Curse on other pupils who had received detentions under Amycus Carrow's direction: according to Neville Longbottom, it was "the first time they were the best in anything." During the fight for the Horcrux diadem with Harry, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in the Room of Requirement, Crabbe defies Malfoy's order to not kill Harry and casually throws around the Avada Kedavra curse. Finally, he summons Fiendfyre and turns the room into a blazing inferno, but it quickly rages beyond his control and ultimately leads to his death. Crabbe's spell, ironically, destroys the Horcrux. Goyle is knocked unconscious during the ensuing fight, but is rescued along with Malfoy by Harry, Ron and Hermione. Goyle and Malfoy are left mourning Crabbe's death. In the film series, Jamie Waylett portrays Crabbe, and Joshua Herdman portrays Goyle.  Gabrielle Delacour Gabrielle Delacour is the only younger sister of Fleur Delacour. Her age in Goblet of Fire is estimated by Harry to be no more than eight years old, and this statement is reinforced when it is stated in Deathly Hallows that she is eleven. During the Triwizard Tournament, in which Fleur is the champion for Beauxbatons, Gabrielle is chosen along with Ron, Hermione, and Cho Chang to be the underwater "bait" for the champions to rescue. Fleur does not manage to rescue Gabrielle in time because she is held back by Grindylows and is forced to return, but Harry goes on to save her in addition to his own hostage. Fleur hints in Half-Blood Prince that Gabrielle (much like the young Ginny Weasley) has developed a crush on Harry, since she "never stops talking" about him. Gabrielle and Ginny serve as bridesmaids at Bill and Fleur's wedding in Deathly Hallows. Her part-Veela heritage begins to develop as she matures; she is called a "Fleur in miniature". She retains the crush on Harry at that time, causing Ginny to clear her throat loudly in mild jealousy when she throws him a flirtatious look. Gabrielle was portrayed by Angelica Mandy in the film adaptation of Goblet of Fire.  Cedric Diggory Cedric Diggory is a Hufflepuff student two years above Harry. In addition to being a Hufflepuff prefect, he is the house Quidditch captain and Seeker. His father is Amos Diggory, who works at the Ministry of Magic. Cedric is first mentioned in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when he is described by the female Gryffindor Chasers as "strong and silent" amid giggles prior to the Hufflepuff-Gryffindor match, and shows a notable streak of modesty and fairness; when he catches the Snitch and wins the match after Harry falls off his broomstick following an encounter with the Dementors, he protests that the result should be nullified and the match replayed. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Cedric is selected as the Hogwarts champion for the Triwizard Tournament. After Harry is also picked to compete, Malfoy makes "Support Cedric Diggory/Potter Stinks" badges, which Cedric tries to discourage his housemates from wearing. For the First Task, Cedric transfigures a rock into a dog in order to distract his dragon and successfully retrieves his golden egg, but he receives a burn on his cheek in the process. He is later Cho Chang's date for the Yule Ball. As compensation for Harry's warning about the dragons before the First Task, Cedric assists Harry in solving the clue of the Second Task by telling him to take a bath with the egg in the prefects' bathroom, and just "mull things over in the hot water." Cedric is the second of the four champions to reach the village of the merpeople and rescue his hostage, using a Bubble-Head Charm, but surfaced one minute over the one-hour time limit. During the Third Task, Harry saves Cedric's life twice while in the maze, and when they reach the Triwizard Cup, Cedric refuses to take it without Harry, so they grab hold of it together. The cup turns out to be a Portkey which transports them to the Little Hangleton graveyard, where Voldemort and Peter Pettigrew await Harry's arrival; Pettigrew murders Cedric on the spot upon Voldemort's order to "kill the spare." In the midst of the Priori Incantatem effect during Harry's duel with Voldemort, Cedric's spirit appears and asks Harry to take his body back to his parents. Despite an attempted cover-up of the incident by the Ministry, Dumbledore candidly reveals the true nature of Cedric's demise to the students at the end-of-term feast, stating that to attribute it to an accident would be "an insult to his memory." Robert Pattinson appeared as Cedric in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and made a brief cameo in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  Gellert Grindelwald Gellert Grindelwald is a Dark wizard who, in a list of "Most Dangerous Dark Wizards of All Time", would be second only to Voldemort, according to Rita Skeeter's book The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore. His name is first mentioned on Dumbledore's Chocolate Frog card, which notes that Dumbledore defeated Grindelwald in 1945. Grindelwald attended the wizarding school Durmstrang, from which he was expelled in his sixth year for his dangerous and evil experiments that nearly resulted in the deaths of some of his fellow students. He left the symbol of the Deathly Hallows on one of the walls in Durmstrang before departing. After Durmstrang, he went to live with his great-aunt Bathilda Bagshot in Godric's Hollow, where he met a young Dumbledore. In Deathly Hallows, it was revealed that Grindelwald had gone to Godric's Hollow to investigate the grave of the Peverell brothers (the original owners of the Hallows), but struck up a close friendship with Dumbledore, and the two planned to establish a new world order, where wizards would rule over Muggles "for the greater good" (the phrase later became Grindelwald's excuse for the atrocities he committed in his reign of terror). They also planned to work together in their quest for the Hallows. It was revealed by Rowling at a Q&A session that Dumbledore was once in love with Grindelwald, but she did not say whether those feelings were returned. However, Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus's younger brother, argued against these plans, because he feared their grand ambitions would leave his disabled, traumatised sister, Ariana, abandoned. The argument culminated in a three-way battle between Albus, Aberforth, and Grindelwald. Ariana was inadvertently killed by one of them. Grindelwald fled, fearing retribution. Henceforth, Albus ended his friendship with him. Grindelwald successfully became master of one of the Deathly Hallows, the Elder Wand, by stealing it from the previous owner, the wand-maker Gregorovitch. Gaining the Elder Wand's immense power, he subsequently committed many terrible acts, although these seem to have been restricted to Central and Eastern Europe. It is revealed that Grindelwald's actions have caused many deaths that have greatly affected the students of Durmstrang, including Viktor Krum, whose grandfather was murdered by Grindelwald. After Grindelwald's rise to power, Dumbledore delayed meeting him again for several years due to his fear of being confronted with his sister's death and the fact that he himself might have been the one who accidentally killed her. Both wizards were highly intelligent and skilled in battle, and those who witnessed the battle say that no other wizarding duel ever matched it. Grindelwald, who at the time possessed the supposedly unbeatable Elder Wand, lost to Dumbledore. Since Dumbledore won the duel over Grindelwald, the Elder Wand transferred its allegiance to Dumbledore. After Dumbledore triumphed over Grindelwald, the defeated dark wizard was imprisoned in the top-most cell of Nurmengard. He remained there until the events of Deathly Hallows when Voldemort arrives, seeking the Elder Wand. Grindelwald, showing no fear of Voldemort and welcoming death, tells him that he never owned the wand, and Voldemort kills him in rage. In the chapter King's Cross, Harry suggests to Dumbledore that Grindelwald lied to Voldemort in order to prevent him from breaking into Dumbledore's tomb, where he knew the Elder Wand lay. Dumbledore suggests that in his later years Grindelwald had been said to have felt remorse for his evil actions. Jamie Campbell Bower will portray a young Grindelwald in the film adapations of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Viktor Krum Viktor Krum (Bulgarian: Виктор Крум) is a Seeker for the Bulgarian national Quidditch team. Many consider him a prodigy, having entered the International Quidditch League at an early age. Despite his success and fame, Krum appeared to be unhappy and lonely, and was further characterised as being very quiet and reserved, though Hermione says he is a genuinely nice person beneath the sullen exterior. In the Quidditch World Cup title game between Bulgaria and Ireland, he suffers a severe bloody nose during the match and catches the Snitch as quickly as he can to end the match, which hands victory to Ireland because Bulgaria was trailing by 160 points at the time. Krum is named Durmstrang champion upon entering his name for the prestigious Triwizard Tournament. He is often viewed with suspicion by his peers due to Durmstrang's reputation for teaching the Dark Arts, while looked upon with admiration for his feats, mainly by giggling Hogwarts girls. Whilst competing in the Triwizard Tournament, he takes to visiting the Hogwarts library in order to try and talk to Hermione. Krum has to rescue her from the merpeople in the Great Lake for the Second Task. In the climax of the book, Krum, under the influence of a Imperius Curse cast by Barty Crouch Jr, uses the Cruciatus Curse on Cedric Diggory to eliminate any opposition for Harry to win the tournament, but is not arrested nor punished for this. Krum briefly returns in Deathly Hallows, as a wedding guest of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour. He has a heated discussion with Xenophilius Lovegood, after he recognises a symbol that Xenophilius wears around his neck as the mark of Grindelwald; the symbol is later discovered to actually be the mark of the Deathly Hallows. Krum eventually finds love in his native Bulgaria. Stanislav Ianevski portrayed Krum in the film adaptation of Goblet of Fire.  Augusta Longbottom Augusta Longbottom is Neville Longbottom's paternal grandmother. She raised him from a young age after her son and his wife were tortured and permanently incapacitated by a group of Death Eaters led by Bellatrix Lestrange. Early on, it is established that Neville is terrified of his grandmother, who is a very strict disciplinarian, a perfectionist, and a no-nonsense witch, especially towards Neville, and sometimes complains of his lack of talent. Augusta is introduced in Philosopher's Stone before Neville leaves for Hogwarts. In Order of the Phoenix, Harry and his friends meet Augusta and Neville in St Mungo's Hospital as they are visiting Frank and Alice, a scene in which Augusta explains to Harry's friends how Neville's parents got into that state. In Half-Blood Prince, Augusta wants Neville to continue studying Transfiguration instead of Charms, which she considers a soft option. It is revealed by Minerva McGonagall that Augusta thinks like this because she failed her Charms O.W.L. McGonagall also writes a letter to Augusta so that she "learned to be proud of the grandson she's got, rather than the one she thinks she ought to have." Deathly Hallows is a definite turning point for the relationship between Augusta and her grandson. Towards the climax of the book, it is revealed that the Death Eaters targeted Augusta when Neville was acting as leader of the reformed Dumbledore's Army. The Ministry official John Dawlish is sent to arrest her but does not succeed and winds up in hospital when she apparently fights back before going on the run. Augusta also arrives to the Battle of Hogwarts to assist her grandson. Bolstered by Neville's leadership of the D.A. during his seventh year at Hogwarts, Augusta ultimately becomes extremely proud of him.  Xenophilius Lovegood Xenophilius "Xeno" Lovegood is Luna Lovegood's father and the editor-in-chief of The Quibbler, a magazine that often publishes stories about wild conspiracy theories or research on seemingly non-existent creatures. He is introduced as a friend of the Weasleys in Deathly Hallows, when he attends the wedding of Fleur Delacour and Bill Weasley, described as eccentric looking; he is slightly cross-eyed, with shoulder-length white hair the texture of candyfloss. Xenophilius wears the symbol of the Deathly Hallows around his neck as a way of symbolising his willingness to help other believers of the Hallows in their quest to obtain them. Later in the story, he explains to Harry, Ron, and Hermione the significance of the Deathly Hallows. Although initially one of the staunchest supporters of the anti-Voldemort movement through his magazine, Xenophilius later betrays the trio's location to the then-Death Eater-controlled Ministry of Magic in a bid to ensure the safe return of his kidnapped daughter. After an ensuing battle with Xenophilius and the Death Eaters, the trio escape and the Death Eaters arrest Xenophilius, which saves his reputation, as he is mentioned on the clandestine "Potterwatch" radio broadcast as a persecuted anti-Voldemort dissident, and the new issue of "The Quibbler" in which he attacks Harry is buried under the ruins and never distributed. Harry, Ron, and Hermione never reveal his attempted betrayal, which was motivated solely by fear for Luna's life. Welsh actor Rhys Ifans will portray Xenophilius in the upcoming film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Teddy Lupin Ted Remus "Teddy" Lupin is the orphaned only son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks and godson of Harry Potter. He is named after Tonks's late father, Ted Tonks, and his own father, Remus. Teddy is a Metamorphmagus like his mother Nymphadora, and is not affected by his father's werewolf status. Later, in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows, he is announced by Harry's elder son James as being on the Hogwarts Express train and snogging Victoire Weasley, the daughter of Fleur Delacour and Bill Weasley. At nineteen, according to the series timeline, Teddy is too old to be attending Hogwarts, so he is present at the station only to see Victoire off to school. Rowling stated that Teddy was raised by his maternal grandmother, Andromeda Tonks, and not by his godfather, Harry. However, he has a very close relationship with Harry, who mentions that he usually comes to dinner at his house four times a week.  Narcissa Malfoy Narcissa "Cissy" Malfoy, born Narcissa Black to Cygnus Black and Druella Rosier, is the youngest of three sisters, Bellatrix Lestrange and Andromeda Tonks being her older siblings. She is a cousin of Sirius and Regulus Black and an aunt to Nymphadora Tonks, daughter of her sister Andromeda. Narcissa attended Hogwarts, where she was in Slytherin House. She later married Lucius Malfoy, with whom she has one son, Draco. Although never a Death Eater herself, Narcissa shares her husband's views on blood purity. She is first described as a tall, slim blonde who would have been attractive had it not been for "a look that suggested there was a nasty smell under her nose." Although Narcissa makes her first, very brief appearance in Goblet of Fire, where she attends the Quidditch World Cup with her husband and son, her role in the series first becomes important in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. At the beginning of the book, Narcissa and Bellatrix arrive suddenly at Snape's home. Narcissa is distraught, almost hysterical, with her husband imprisoned in Azkaban and her son forced to accept a difficult and dangerous assignment by Voldemort. She begs Snape to help Draco and asks him to make an Unbreakable Vow, to which he agrees. Later in the novel, Narcissa appears shopping with Draco for his new robes at Madam Malkin's. She and Draco mock Harry when he enters the shop with his friends, Ron and Hermione. Harry, Ron, and Draco nearly start a duel, but Narcissa defuses the situation by leaving with her son. In Deathly Hallows, Narcissa's home is being used (against her will) as the Headquarters for Voldemort and his Death Eaters and for confining several prisoners, including eventually, Harry, Ron, and Hermione. When this group escapes with the help of Dobby the house elf, Voldemort places Narcissa and her family under house arrest. In the climax of the book, the Malfoys are brought with the other Death Eaters to Hogwarts, when Voldemort invades the castle. When Voldemort casts a Killing Curse on Harry, Narcissa is ordered to verify his death. When she feels Harry's heart beating, she quietly asks him whether Draco is still alive at Hogwarts, a fact that Harry confirms. Knowing that she will not be free to search for her son unless she can return with the Death Eaters as part of a "conquering army", Narcissa lies to Voldemort and declares Harry to be dead. She is later seen at the end of the book, with her husband and son, unsure what to do and how to behave amidst the celebration of Voldemort's death. However, thanks to her lie to Voldemort, the Malfoys manage to "weasel their way" out of imprisonment in Azkaban. Narcissa will be portrayed by Helen McCrory in the film adaptations of Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows.  Olympe Maxime Madame Olympe Maxime is the headmistress of Beauxbatons, the French wizarding school. She is described as being elegant and wearing black satin robes, and having olive skin and handsome features, but being extremely tall. It is revealed that Madame Maxime's huge size is due to her half-giant background. She fiercely denies this, although she is around the same height as fellow half-giant Rubeus Hagrid. Upon first sight, Hagrid immediately takes a crush on Madame Maxime, which he shows by attempting to groom himself properly. The character is introduced in Goblet of Fire when her school is invited to the Triwizard Tournament, with Fleur Delacour being elected as Beauxbaton's champion. When Harry is chosen as the fourth champion and second Hogwarts champion, she is angered and is about to leave the tournament, but she eventually agrees to stay. In Order of the Phoenix, Hagrid tells Harry, Ron, and Hermione that he and Madame Maxime visited the giants during that summer in order to get them into the Order of the Phoenix's side. Unfortunately, they failed in their mission, because Voldemort also sent a group of Death Eaters to address the giants. When giants attack Hagrid, Madame Maxime defended him by using a conjunctivitis curse. Hagrid describes her spell work as "brilliant." She separates from Hagrid during the return journey, however, because he would not abandon his giant half-brother Grawp, who proves to be a highly taxing travelling companion. She returns to Beauxbatons alone. In Half-Blood Prince, Madame Maxime is among those paying respects at Dumbledore's funeral. Frances de la Tour appeared as Madame Maxime in Goblet of Fire.  Cormac McLaggen Cormac McLaggen is a Gryffindor student one year above Harry. He is introduced for the first time during the train journey to Hogwarts in Half-Blood Prince as a member of Horace Slughorn's Slug Club, due to his uncle's close ties with the Ministry of Magic. Cormac is shown as an unsympathetic Gryffindor character, and his Gryffindor bravery is both a strength and a flaw: he is foolhardy and proud, bordering on arrogant. Cormac tries out for the position of Keeper when Harry becomes captain; however, Hermione secretly jinxes him with the Confundus Charm, causing him to miss his last save and thus helping Ron retain his spot on the team. Cormac does not take his loss well, accusing Ginny of favouritism by giving Ron easy shots to block. Cormac fills in during Gryffindor's match against Hufflepuff as Keeper when Ron is unable to play due to poisoning, but his debut is disastrous, as he orders the team about instead of focusing on his own position, knocks Harry unconscious with a Beater's bat, and contributes to Gryffindor's lopsided 320-60 loss, thus earning him universal dislike among his housemates. Cormac also briefly becomes a pawn in the escalating tensions between Ron and Hermione, when he accompanies Hermione to Slughorn's Christmas party as her date, in retaliation for Ron's relationship with Lavender Brown. The plan backfires when she becomes exasperated with McLaggen's arrogant behaviour, and she leaves him stranded under the mistletoe and avoids him for the remainder of the party. Freddie Stroma appeared as McLaggen in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  Auntie Muriel Muriel, Molly Weasley's aunt, is a great-aunt of the Weasley children. According to Ron, she is rude to just about everyone she meets. Harry first meets her in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows during Bill and Fleur's wedding. She is described as having bloodshot eyes and a large, feathery, pink hat, making her look like a "badly tempered flamingo". She loans her beautiful goblin-made tiara to Fleur to wear. During the wedding, she starts an argument with Elphias Doge about Dumbledore's past and Rita Skeeter's "The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore". Muriel first provides her house for the Order of the Phoenix so that Order members can arrive there after taking Harry from the Dursleys'. Later in the book, all the Weasleys hide in her house because they are targeted for being blood traitors. Although she makes disparaging remarks about Hermione being a Muggle-born, there is no indication that she supports any notion of blood purity. Matyelok Gibbs will appear as Muriel in the film adaptaions of Deathly Hallows.  Moaning Myrtle Moaning Myrtle is a ghost who haunts the second floor girls' lavatory at Hogwarts. True to her nickname, she has a tendency to sob, whine, wail and complain, especially when death is referred to. Her constant moping and wailing causes plumbing problems in the lavatory she haunts. It was revealed by Rowling on her website that Myrtle was in Ravenclaw House. In Chamber of Secrets, it is established that the character is the ghost of a Muggle-born witch who died while a student at Hogwarts, fifty years before the events in the book. It is revealed that Myrtle was hiding in the second floor girls' lavatory to elude Olive Hornby, a classmate of hers who perpetually tormented her about her glasses, when the Chamber of Secrets was opened and the basilisk emerged and killed her. Tom Riddle used her death to create his second Horcrux: his diary. After death, Myrtle haunted Olive everywhere she went, until Olive complained to the Ministry of Magic, who ordered Myrtle to return to Hogwarts. Ever since then, Myrtle has sulkily haunted the same lavatory where she died. Myrtle also helps Harry with his second task in the Triwizard Tournament, in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Myrtle tells Harry how to solve the puzzle of the golden egg that he retrieved in the first task, by opening the egg underwater. She is shown to be a lot less miserable, and enjoys having Harry briefly to herself to boss around. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, she appears to comfort Draco, who is worried about the task given to him by Voldemort. After Harry injures Malfoy using Sectumsempra, Myrtle is not hesitant to spread the news throughout the school, screaming that Harry had murdered him. In the films, Shirley Henderson portrays Myrtle.  Mr Ollivander Mr Ollivander runs Ollivander's, a prestigious shop which sells magical wands in Diagon Alley. Despite the popularity of his wares, he has shown that he can easily name the materials and attributes of every wand he has ever sold over the years. In Philosopher's Stone, Mr Ollivander assists a young Harry in selecting his first wand. Finding Harry a particularly difficult customer to match, Mr Ollivander finally selects an eleven-inch-long wand made of holly containing a phoenix feather (later revealed to be that of Dumbledore's companion, Fawkes), which is perfectly suited to Harry. Mr Ollivander seems very thoughtful that the two should be matched, revealing that the phoenix gave one other feather, and that the wand containing the other feather now belongs to Voldemort. Ollivander's appearance in Goblet of Fire is during the preliminary ceremonies of the Triwizard Tournament, where he appears as an expert judge for the Weighing of the Wands. In Half-Blood Prince, it is mentioned that his shop has closed and boarded up, and that Ollivander himself is missing. In Deathly Hallows, Ollivander is revealed to have been captured by Voldemort and imprisoned at Malfoy Manor with Luna, with whom he develops an affectionate relationship as the two strive to keep each other's spirits up. He is among those rescued from the manor by Dobby, after which, at Shell Cottage, he provides Harry and his friends with some useful information about the Elder Wand. He later goes into hiding at the home of Auntie Muriel and sends Luna a new wand as a gift. British actor John Hurt appeared as Ollivander in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.  Pansy Parkinson Pansy Parkinson is a Slytherin student who is described as pug-faced and frequently seen with an unnamed gang of Slytherin girls, acting as leader or at least as spokeswoman of them. She is also Draco Malfoy's female counterpart and apparent love interest. She is first mentioned in the Sorting in Philosopher's Stone, and makes her first appearance in Madam Hooch's flying class, during which she teases Parvati Patil for defending Neville Longbottom after Draco steals Longbottom's Remembrall. In Prisoner of Azkaban, she cries and follows Malfoy to the hospital wing after he is attacked by Buckbeak, and continues to fawn over him despite his deliberate exaggeration of the extent of his injury. They attended the Yule Ball together in Goblet of Fire, and on the train ride to Hogwarts at the start of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, she is seen stroking Malfoy's hair while his head lay in her lap, visibly impressed by his bold claims concerning his job for Voldemort. Throughout the series, Pansy regularly mocks Harry and his companions. She gives false information on Harry, Hermione, and Hagrid to Rita Skeeter, and openly voices criticisms of Hagrid to Umbridge about the displeasure of his Care of Magical Creatures class and the difficulty of understanding his voice. She and other Slytherins also taunt the Gryffindor Quidditch players from the stands during a morning practice, notably teasing Angelina Johnson about her braided hair. During a Gryffindor-Slytherin match, which is also Ron's debut as the new Gryffindor Keeper, she conducts the Slytherin students as they sing a demeaning song titled "Weasley is our King." Pansy has a moderately increased role in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. She is made a Slytherin prefect along with Malfoy, and later joins Dolores Umbridge's Inquisitorial Squad. When Dumbledore's Army flees the Room of Requirement following Dobby's revelation of an informant, Pansy searches the girls' bathrooms for escaped members and seizes Hermione's list of names as evidence. However, the Inquisitorial Squad members are jinxed in the midst of a student rebellion following Fred and George Weasley's departure from Hogwarts; she is hospitalised and misses a day's worth of lessons after sprouting a pair of antlers. Near the conclusion of Deathly Hallows, when Voldemort demands Harry's surrender in order to prevent the Death Eaters from attacking Hogwarts, Pansy urges Minerva McGonagall to comply, and the Gryffindors, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs collectively respond by standing up and pointing their wands at her. She eventually evacuates with the other Slytherins rather than staying to fight. Rowling has stated that she loathes Pansy, saying that she was based on girls who had teased her during her school days. Pansy was portrayed by Genevieve Gaunt in Prisoner of Azkaban, and by Scarlett Byrne in Half-Blood Prince.  The Peverell brothers The Peverell family is first mentioned in Half-Blood Prince as ancestors of Marvolo Gaunt, the maternal grandfather of Voldemort. In the final book of the series, they are revealed to be the original owners of the Deathly Hallows. After Hermione saw the symbol of the Deathly Hallows on Ignotus Peverell's grave in Godric's Hollow, Harry recalled Marvolo Gaunt boasting that his ring held the Peverell coat of arms on it, thus realizing that the three brothers were the Peverells. Harry deduces that he is descended from Ignotus, as the cloak is passed down through his family. Furthermore, Rowling has confirmed that Harry and Voldemort are indeed distant relatives because of their relation to the Peverells, as the majority of wizard families share common ancestry. Antioch Peverell was the eldest of the three Peverell brothers. According to The Tales of Beedle the Bard, he received the Elder Wand from Death, although Dumbledore believes it more likely that he created the wand himself. He was killed in his sleep after bragging about the wand's invincibility. The murderer then stole the Elder Wand, thus initiating its bloody history. Cadmus Peverell was the middle of the three Peverell Brothers. According to The Tales of Beedle the Bard, he received the Resurrection Stone from Death, but according to Dumbledore's deductions is most likely to have created the Stone himself. He, using the Stone, resurrected the girl he had once hoped to marry, who had died an untimely death. Though she had returned to the mortal world, she did not truly belong there and suffered. Driven mad by this, he killed himself to join her. This stone became known as the Resurrection Stone, and was embedded in a ring belonging to Marvolo Gaunt. Ignotus Peverell was the youngest of the three Peverell brothers, described in The Tales of Beedle the Bard as 'the humblest and also the wisest of the brothers'. Ignotus's first appearance is in the final book, where it is revealed that, according to legend, he received the Cloak of Invisibility from Death. This meant that, unlike his brothers, he successfully avoided dying for many years, living a full and long life, and ultimately greeted Death as a friend. Harry realises that he has Ignotus's cloak because the cloak has been passed down through many generations of his family without fading or being damaged in any way, therefore he is the descendant of Ignotus. The line is continued through Harry's three children, who appear at the end of Deathly Hallows.  Madam Rosmerta Madam Rosmerta is the landlady of The Three Broomsticks pub. She is described in the books as "a curvy sort of woman"; several pupils therefore have a crush on her. In Prisoner of Azkaban, Madam Rosmerta is angered when Dementors were in Hogsmeade because their presence is scaring away many of her customers. Apart from hosting an informal meeting between McGonagall, Cornelius Fudge, Filius Flitwick, and Hagrid, and being the object of Ron's infatuation, she does not play a major role in the early part of the Harry Potter series. In Half-Blood Prince, however, it emerges that, in order to fulfil his mission to assassinate Dumbledore, Draco has managed to place Rosmerta under the Imperius Curse. He uses her to pass on a cursed necklace to Hogwarts student Katie Bell, who accidentally touches the necklace and is herself subjected to the very harmful curse intended for the Headmaster. He also commands her to send a bottle of poisoned mead to Horace Slughorn intending it to be a Christmas present for Dumbledore after overhearing Hermione mentioning that the security on the school would not recognise something put in the wrong bottle and knowing that a package from Rosmerta would not be checked. Malfoy communicates with Rosmerta through enchanted fake Galleons. After Harry and Dumbledore had been to the cave to retrieve a locket they believed to be one of Voldemort's Horcruxes, they Apparated to Hogsmeade, where Madam Rosmerta alerts them to the presence of the Dark Mark above the school and gives them brooms on which they could travel rapidly back to Hogwarts, where Draco's plan could be brought to completion. Rosmerta is among those paying respects at Dumbledore's funeral. Julie Christie appeared as Madam Rosmerta in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  Stan Shunpike Stan Shunpike is the young, pimply conductor of the Knight Bus. He speaks with a Cockney accent, and converses with Harry as he travels to London in the first part of Prisoner of Azkaban. He also appears briefly in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at the Quidditch World Cup, boasting to a group of Veela, the Bulgarian team's official mascot, of his ambitious plans to become the next Minister for Magic. In Order of the Phoenix, he conducts the Knight Bus when Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, Ginny, Lupin, and Tonks take it to return to Hogwarts after the Christmas holidays. Stan mentions that he does not believe the media rumours about Harry being insane, though Harry interprets Stan's actions as not caring how insane someone is as long as they are famous enough to get into the papers. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Stan is arrested on suspicion of Death Eater activity. Harry and Dumbledore, however, believe that he is almost certainly not guilty. Even so, Stan is kept in Azkaban in order for the Ministry of Magic to give the pretence that progress is being made in the capturing of Death Eaters. When the new Minister of Magic asks Harry to be a sort of mascot for the Ministry, Harry refuses on the grounds of the Ministry's actions at the time - namely holding Stan under arrest. In Deathly Hallows, a "strangely blank" looking Stan is among the Death Eaters who pursue Harry during his escape from Privet Drive. Harry gives himself away to his attackers by attempting to only Disarm Stan, as Harry believes him to be under the Imperius Curse. Stan was portrayed by Lee Ingleby in the film adaptation of Prisoner of Azkaban.  Rita Skeeter Rita Skeeter is a reporter for the Daily Prophet and a correspondent for the Witch Weekly, who specialises in yellow journalism, for which she is armed with such magical devices as the Quick-Quotes Quill. Rita is an unregistered Animagus, capable of transforming into a beetle to spy on unsuspecting victims for her stories. As a reporter who fabricates information in order to write an appealing story, she is an antagonist to Harry and his friends throughout Goblet of Fire, and a brief but reluctant ally in Order of the Phoenix. Harry first encounters Rita when she interviews the Triwizard Tournament contestants for an article in the Daily Prophet, which turns out to be a highly falsified story of Harry himself. During the situations where Rita overhears information, the book subtly refers to her presence: Viktor Krum mentions that Hermione has a water beetle in her hair, and during the Yule Ball, she overhears Hagrid telling Madame Maxime that he is half-giant, Harry having noticed a beetle on a nearby statue. Rita prints an article that portrays Hagrid as dangerous, prompting letters from parents frightened by the idea of having a "ferocious" giant teach their children. When Rita encounters Harry, Ron, and Hermione in Hogsmeade, Hermione insults her. Rita, in revenge, then writes a nasty story about Hermione based on false rumours provided by Pansy Parkinson, making her out to be an ugly but skilled witch who uses love potions to "satisfy her taste for celebrity wizards," including Harry and Krum. Rita's last defaming article states that Harry is "disturbed and dangerous," and uses comments from Draco and his Slytherin cronies as its basis. Ultimately, Hermione discovers the means by which Rita spies on others and forces her to "keep her quill to herself for a full year", threatening to report her to the authorities as an illegal Animagus. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Hermione blackmails Rita, using the above threat, to interview Harry about Voldemort returning and to submit the true story to The Quibbler. Rita later makes a brief cameo in Half-Blood Prince, where Harry is infuriated to notice her clutching a notebook at Dumbledore's funeral. Although Rita does not make a physical appearance in Deathly Hallows, she is mentioned on numerous occasions throughout the novel, generally in a negative light in relation to her unauthorised biography of Dumbledore entitled The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore. The book depicts the former headmaster in an extremely negative light but is mostly based on truth, much to Harry's horror. It is implied that she got some of her information in unethical or illegal ways. When asked on a web chat if Rita was still reporting, Rowling answered; "Naturally, what could stop Rita? I imagine she immediately dashed off a biography of Harry after he defeated Voldemort. One quarter truth to three quarters rubbish", along with "Snape: Scoundrel or Saint?" It has been speculated that the fraught relationship between Rowling and the press was the inspiration for the author to develop the character. However, Rowling noted in 2000 that the character actually predates her rise to fame. Rita was intended to be in Philosopher's Stone, as Rowling revealed in an interview: "you know when Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron for the first time and everyone says, "Mr. Potter you're back!", I wanted to put a journalist in there. She wasn't called Rita then but she was a woman. And then I thought, as I looked at the plot overall, I thought, that's not really where she fits best, she fits best in Four when Harry's supposed to come to terms with his fame." Miranda Richardson appeared as Rita in the film adaptation of Goblet of Fire.  Hepzibah Smith Hepzibah Smith is introduced within Dumbledore's Pensieve, as part of a series of memories shown to Harry by his headmaster probing into Voldemort's past. She is described as having been an extremely wealthy, well-born old witch who enjoyed collecting antiques and collectibles. In the memory, Hepzibah wears long robes and gowns of pink, and when sitting upon her throne-like chair, she is described as giving the impression of a large "melting iced cake". She wears a large, elaborate, ginger wig upon her head and dabs her red cheeks with rouge. Tom Riddle, fresh out of Hogwarts and working for Borgin and Burkes, visits Hepzibah to make an offer for some goblin-made armour which she owns. He presents her with flowers and charms and flatters her. Enamoured with Riddle, Hepzibah shows him her most prized possessions – a cup, owned by her ancestor Helga Hufflepuff, and a locket which once belonged to Salazar Slytherin, that she had purchased from Borgin and Burkes. Only a few days after the events of the memory occurred, Hepzibah died, and Hufflepuff's cup and Slytherin's locket were never found. Dumbledore theorizes that Riddle had killed Hepzibah and tampered with the memory of her house-elf, Hokey, so that she thought she had accidentally poisoned her mistress. Hufflepuff's cup and Slytherin's locket would go on to become two of Voldemort's Horcruxes. Rowling has confirmed that Hepzibah's death was used by the Dark Lord to create a Horcrux using the cup.  Andromeda Tonks Andromeda "Dromeda" Tonks is the mother of Nymphadora Tonks. Born Andromeda Black, she is a pure-blood witch, daughter of Cygnus Black and Druella Rosier and sister of Bellatrix Lestrange and Narcissa Malfoy. The middle sister, she was burned off the family tapestry in Number 12, Grimmauld Place by her aunt Walburga and estranged from the family because she married Ted Tonks, a Muggle-born wizard. She was Sirius Black's favourite cousin. Andromeda is responsible for giving her daughter the name "Nymphadora", a name like those typical to her family. She has a talent for household spells and cleanliness, lacked by her husband and daughter. She is not physically introduced until the beginning of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. She greatly resembles her sister Bellatrix, so much so that Harry thinks she is Bellatrix upon first meeting her, but is kind looking and has soft brown, rather than black, hair. She and Ted are later tortured for information on Harry's whereabouts. For someone who is not a member of the Order of the Phoenix, the war with Voldemort and his followers exacts a very heavy toll on Andromeda: her husband, her daughter, and her son-in-law are all killed. Rowling stated in an interview that after the war, Andromeda raises Teddy Lupin, her grandson.  Ted Tonks Ted Tonks is a Muggle-born wizard who is described as a "fair-haired, big bellied man". He married Andromeda Black. Their marriage led to his wife's disownment by the rest of her strict pure-blood family. Ted and Andromeda are the parents of Nymphadora Tonks. Ted plays an active role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Near the beginning of the novel, his home is a hideout for Harry and Hagrid, as the two are on the run from Voldemort. His home holds the portkey that helps Harry escape to The Burrow. Later due to Ted's refusal to register as a Muggle-born, he is one of the Muggle-born wizards to flee the Ministry's new oppressive regime after the Death Eaters take over. During his flight, he meets the goblins Griphook and Gornuk, as well as Dean Thomas and Dirk Cresswell. Soon after, Ted is murdered by snatchers who also kill Gornuk and Cresswell. When Tonks gives birth to her and Lupin's son, they name him Teddy in honour of her father.  Oliver Wood Oliver Wood is Captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team in the first three novels and was first introduced in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Wood is a talented and keen player and a born leader as captain, but also tends to act as a taskmaster due to his obsession with the game; he never cancels practices, poor weather conditions notwithstanding, and holds training sessions in early morning hours. Although Oliver is in general a nice person, he lacks tact. In his seventh year, before the Quidditch Cup final, he constantly harangues Harry to catch the Golden Snitch only when Gryffindor is fifty points ahead of Slytherin during the match. Oliver says that he does not care if Harry falls off his Firebolt so long as he catches the Snitch on it first, not realising how this would sound. Oliver appears briefly in Goblet of Fire, when he excitedly introduces Harry to his parents at the Quidditch World Cup and announces that he joined the Puddlemere United reserve team. He is one of many Hogwarts students, past and present, who takes part in the Battle of Hogwarts in Deathly Hallows, and is among the survivors; Harry sees him assisting Neville Longbottom in carrying the body of Colin Creevey. Oliver was portrayed by Sean Biggerstaff in the first two films.  The Muggle Prime Minister This fictional character, equivalent to the real Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, receives a visit from Cornelius Fudge and Rufus Scrimgeour in the opening chapter of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Using a series of flashbacks, Rowling describes how the Prime Minister is aware of the existence of the wizarding world, through several meetings with Fudge that include his first night as Prime Minister, the night in which Sirius Black escaped from Azkaban, the notification of the incident in the Quidditch World Cup and the announcement of the importation of dragons and a sphinx for the Triwizard Tournament, and finally the Azkaban mass breakout from the fifth book. Rowling intended to include the Prime Minister scene in earlier books, but she thought that it could not properly fit until the sixth book. On the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the Prime Minister recalls his day, during which one of his political opponents had been criticising him and his government for several catastrophes that have recently happened in Britain. Readers discover a little later during the discussion with Fudge, that these catastrophes are, in fact, the doings of Voldemort and his followers. He also discovers that he is protected by an Auror who now works in his office, Kingsley Shacklebolt.  The Weird Sisters The Weird Sisters are a fictional rock band in the Harry Potter series. Their instruments include guitars, bass, flute, cello, bagpipes and drums. They were booked by Dumbledore to play at Hogwarts during the Yule Ball. In the book version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire they are described as "all extremely hairy and dressed in black robes that had been artfully ripped and torn." A full music video of the band playing at the Yule Ball is included as an extended scene on the Goblet of Fire film 2-disc DVD. In 2005, Warner Bros., the international distributor of Goblet of Fire was sued for trademark violations by members of a Canadian folk-rock band named The Wyrd Sisters. The members of the band according to Wizards of the Coast Famous Wizard cards are: Heathcote Barbary - rhythm guitar Gideon Crumb - bagpipes Kirley Duke (born Kirley McCormack) - lead guitar Merton Graves - cello Orsino Thruston - drums Donaghan Tremlett - bass Myron Wagtail - lead singer Herman Wintringham - lute They appear as a conventional band in the film version Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The members were: Jarvis Cocker (of Pulp) - vocals Jonny Greenwood (of Radiohead) - lead guitar Jason Buckle (of All Seeing I) - rhythm guitar Steve Mackey (of Pulp) - bass Steven Claydon (of Add N to (X)) - keyboards and bagpipes Phil Selway (of Radiohead) - drums They performed three songs (all composed by Cocker), entitled "Do the Hippogriff", "This Is the Night" and "Magic Works" during the Yule Ball. The band was originally to be played by Franz Ferdinand.  Grandchildren of the Weasley family  James Potter James Sirius Potter is the first-born child of Harry and Ginny born at least one year before his brother, Albus. He was named after Harry's father and godfather, and he is described as being similar in character to both his namesakes, and his uncles, Fred and George Weasley, with a penchant for practical jokes and general misbehaviour.[HP7] Despite Harry's best efforts to keep it hidden from his children, James managed to sneak the Marauder's Map from his father's desk one night. It is, however, unknown whether he managed to get the map to work. He seems to be quite close to his father's godson, Teddy Lupin. Ginny compares him to his Uncle Ron after he intrudes on Teddy kissing James's cousin, Victoire. In the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, set nineteen years after Voldemort's defeat, James is depicted leaving for at least his second year of education at Hogwarts. Although it is possible that he is anything from twelve to seventeen years of age at the end of the book, his attitudes suggest that he is not much older than his siblings, and it is implied by Ginny Weasley that his first year was one before his brother Albus's.  Albus Potter Albus Severus "Al" Potter is the second child of Harry and Ginny. He is said to look much like Harry, and it is noted that, of all of Harry's children, he is the only one to have inherited Harry's mother's green eyes. In the epilogue of Deathly Hallows, he is being sent to Hogwarts for the first time. Because of jokes from his elder brother James, Albus fears that he will be placed in Slytherin instead of Gryffindor, the family's school House. Harry reassures Albus that he will be loved no matter what and informs him that Severus Snape, one of the two Hogwarts Headmasters for whom he was named, was in Slytherin and "probably the bravest man I ever knew." In addition, he reveals to Albus that he himself was placed in Gryffindor because he asked the Sorting Hat not to put him in Slytherin, something he had never told any of his children. Harry also had similar fears of being placed in Slytherin when he first went to Hogwarts. Albus's first name comes from Albus Dumbledore, Harry's favourite headmaster, but Harry honours Severus Snape, the man who loved Lily Evans so much that he dedicated his life to protecting her son and ultimately lost his life in the attempt.  Lily Potter Lily Luna Potter is the only daughter of Harry and Ginny, and is the youngest of their three children. She is named after Harry's mother and her parents' "dear friend", Luna Lovegood, and has red hair inherited from her mother and both of her grandmothers. She is two years younger than her brother, Albus. In the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, she was accompanying her parents who were escorting James and Albus to the Hogwarts Express. Her personality seems similar to her mother, Ginny, who acted similarly when she was introduced in the first book. As Lily watched her brothers depart on the Hogwarts Express, she desperately wanted to join them, echoing Ginny's reaction when her brothers left in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.  Rose Weasley Rose Weasley is Ron and Hermione's daughter and elder child. In the Deathly Hallows epilogue, she is leaving for her first year at Hogwarts. She is in the same year as Harry and Ginny's son, Albus, and seems to have inherited her mother's sharp mind. She may also share Albus's fear of being sorted into Slytherin as she is said to look grim when her father jokes that if she is not sorted into Gryffindor, he would disown her. She is also jokingly instructed not to befriend Scorpius, Draco's son, and to beat him in all of their exams. As her mother did, it is noted that she changed into her Hogwarts robes earlier than was necessary.  Hugo Weasley Hugo Weasley is Hermione and Ron's younger child. He is about the same age as Harry and Ginny's daughter, Lily, and has therefore not started at Hogwarts yet.  Victoire Weasley Victoire Weasley is the eldest child of Bill and Fleur and the oldest of the Weasley grandchildren. She is named because she is born on the first-year anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts (May 2nd). "Victoire" literally means "Victory" in French, the native tongue of her mother Fleur (although the name is ostensibly a rendition of Victoria). Victoire herself is only mentioned in the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. James (Harry's son) saw her 'snogging' Teddy Lupin.  Other children Dominique Weasley second daughter of Bill and Fleur Louis Weasley son of Bill and Fleur Molly Weasley first daughter of Percy and Audrey, named after her grandmother Lucy Weasley second daughter of Percy and Audrey Fred Weasley son of George and Angelina, named after his father's late twin Roxanne Weasley daughter of George and Angelina  References ^ a b c d e f g h i j "J.K.
