Full Name: Remus John Lupin
Nicknames: "Moony but that's only exclusive to the Marauders so if you're not one, you can freely call me Remus. :)"
Age: 16 years old
Birthdate: March 10
Home Town: England
Sexuality: Heterosexual

House: Gryffindor. "I don't know why the sorting hat placed me on Gryffindor... because I know that I can be a coward. Bravery? I don't think I have it. Chivalry? -Maybe, because I don't like to bully the weak and I never got happy with seeing violence... but confidence? I don't think I have it. I have loyalty that's for sure, and I think... never mind. I guess the hat, saw something in me, something that I wasn't able to see as an eleven year old child. It knew that I can be better. I may not be the strongest around but I can strive to be more capable. I will surely get rid of this fear in my heart: for the sake of my friends and the other people around me. "
Wand: Ash with Unicorn Hair, thirteen inches. "I think my wand is best used for Defense Against Dark Arts classes... I feel that I get a little much more skillful whenever I use this in the said class, which is ironic really, given my affliction. But then again, I suppose it had something to do with my enthusiasm to excel in the DADA subject."
Likes: Chocolates, Reading, Tea, His friends, Relaxing, Studying, Researching, Staring at the lake
Dislikes: Fenrir Greyback, Werewolf, full moon, being alone, liars, Dark arts, being ostracized, violence
Boggart: Full Moon... this is something he would rather not share why.
Best Classes: Defense Against Dark Arts and Charms. He wanted to be useful to the society and now that the dark times is coming, he wanted to be ready. He also enjoys learning more about defending ones self (and the others). Because of this, he will try his hardest to listen to the lessons.
Worst Classes: Divination and History of Magic. While Remus is a good student over all, he doesn't like Divination. He is not fond of depending on a crystal ball or any other signs to tell about your future. He have a very unpredictable life that he will rather let his decisions take him wherever he would be. Also, history of magic... is a tolerable class for him. You can even say that he's somewhat good at it, but learning about the oppression and ostracism to others was one thing that he greatly disliked.

Personality: Remus is a fair-minded and gentle person. He is calm, tolerant, humble and good-natured; a kind-hearted soul. He is forgiving and tends to see the good in everybody. He won't judge someone easily and will give them second chances instead of solely basing his judgment about them on initial impressions. Unlike his friends though, he never partook in bullying. He thinks that bullying others will accomplish nothing, though one of his flaws is that he didn't made any actions to stop it. He tends to cut a lot of slack for his friends, even though he is a prefect and is, technically, supposed to lay down the law in stone.

Remus will also try to be civil to those who did not get along well. He will rather avoid an argument by peacefully talking about it instead of getting hotheaded. Remus is a good student but also a prankster. He and Peter would sometimes join James and Sirius in detention for mischief-making, though they did not get into as much trouble as their other friends. He is also perceptive and extremely smart. He can read the emotions of others around him just by studying their body language and facial expressions. He will try his best to help others who are in need. He is the kind of guy that 'wouldn't hurt a fly', unless it was the full moon, wherein he might end up murdering a whole town. He would go out of his way to make sure that someone while he didn't even know isn't hurt. He would risk his life for any of his friends or anyone in his family.

Another thing about him, is that Remus can be cowardly at times. Because of his affliction, he have this great fear for shame and rejection which causes him to lose confidence to stand up for what he usually believed in.

History: Remus was born to a wizard and a muggle, making him a half-blood and enabling him to learn about magic when he was only a child. At an early age, he was bitten by a werewolf named Fenrir Greyback because his father had offended Greyback. His parents did everything that they could in order to try to find a cure for him, but there was no cure. When he turned eleven there was a lot of hesitation as to whether or not he would attend school, being a werewolf. His parents were afraid that Hogwarts would not allow him to attend for the fear of other students' safety and because of the large prejudice against werewolves. Surprisingly so, Albus Dumbledore, the current headmaster of Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, encouraged him to attend. The school took certain measures to keep his affliction a secret. Once a month, every full moon, he would be escorted to the Whomping Willow, a small cabin located far off the castle and out of the Hogsmeade's people range. Remus' transformation was very terrible. He would often have the urge to hurt someone and because he was left alone from other humans, he resorted into hurting himself. During his transformation within the house, his screams could be heard throughout the night, thus causing it to be entitled as The Shrieking Shack by the everyone around.

In another surprising turn of events, Remus had gotten friends in the form of James Potter, Sirius Black and Peter Pettigrew. At first they were questioning his frequent disappearances once every month. He kept his status a werewolf a secret from all of the students at Hogwarts, including James, Sirius, and Peter. He made up stories to explain his monthly disappearances, such as that his mother was ill and he needed to go home to visit her. He was terrified that they would desert him once they found out what he truly was. However, James, Sirius, and Peter worked out the truth during their second year, and due to their acceptance of who Remus was. And because of their unusually strong friendship with him, they decided to learn how to become Animagi in order to keep Remus company during his transformations, as a werewolf is only a danger to humans.

By their fifth year, James was able to become a stag, and Sirius was able to become a dog, animals large enough to keep the wolfish Remus in check. Peter, meanwhile, was able to become a rat. Once a month during the full moon, James, Sirius and Peter would sneak out of the castle under James's Invisibility Cloak, transform, get into the Whomping Willow, walk down the tunnel and meet up with Remus in the Shrieking Shack. Under their influence, Remus became tame; his body was still a wolf's, but his mind became less so when he was among them. The four of them soon left the Whomping Willow and would roam among the school grounds and Hogsmeade by night. Eventually, this group of friends came to call themselves the Marauders, and Remus' friends nicknamed him "Moony" because of his transformations during every full moon.

Anything else?: He is one of the Prefects.

So begins...
