She also gave out rather cruel detentions, making students write on paper with their own blood, which she bewitched the pen to cut the students hand open and the blood came from that.

While at Hogwarts, he was a prefect and became head boy. He was born on November 29, 1970.

After they leave Hogwarts (literally leave- jumped on their broomsticks and flew away because they hated Umbridge) they started their joke shop with the money that Harry Potter gave them (1,000 galleons- his winnings from the Triwizard Tournament). They called their joke shop Weasley Wizard Wheezes. Their joke shop seems to be doing really well in Book 6, although all the things from their shop are banned at Hogwarts.

She is said to be very pretty, and is said to look the most like her brothers Fred and George. She has had many boyfriends in her school career, including Michael Corner, Dean Thomas, and Harry Potter. She had always had a crush on Harry since Book 2, but become a lot less shy towards him in Book 4. She played seeker on the Gryffindor quidditch team after Harry was kicked off in Book 5. She then tried out for chaser and made it in Book 6 (after Harry was allowed to play again). Harry was then given detention in book 6, so he could not play seeker for the final matches. Ginny then took over for seeker again, and Dean Thomas played chaser for her. She was also taken over by Tom Riddle’s diary and forced to open the chamber of secrets. She was saved by Harry before Voldemort took full control of her, so that she would die and he wouldn’t.
Weasley, Molly– She is the mother of all the Weasley children and the wife of Arthur Weasley. She also thinks of Harry as a son to her. Her maiden name was Prewett, and her two brothers Gideon and Fabian Prewett were killed by death eaters.

She is very loving and always knits sweaters for her children, and sends them cakes and fun treats on holidays.

He returned in Book 6 to his family after seeing that Harry was not lying about Voldemort being back. He used to work for Barty Crouch Sr. (who knew Percy as Whetherby). He was questioned about the where-abouts of Crouch after he disappeared. In Book 5 he was promoted to the secretary of Cornelius Fudge (because Fudge knew the Weasleys were close to Dumbledore- except for Percy).
