Arthur Weasley A Muggle Loving Light Hearted Man


Arthur Weasley is the patriarch of the Weasley family and married to Molly Weasley with whom he has seven children, including Ron, protagonist Harry Potter's best friend. During his time at Hogwarts, Arthur Weasley belonged to the house of Gryffindor. He is one of the three sons of Septimus Weasley and Cedrella Black. Interestingly enough, this makes him a descendant of the wealthy and self-styled noble House of Black, but his mother was disinherited for marrying into a family of wizards who were "blood traitors". An affable, light-hearted man, he tends not to be the authority figure in the family; his wife Molly tends to handle that area.
Arthur works for the Ministry of Magic, initially in the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts office. He is obsessed with learning about Muggle customs and inventions and owns a large collection of mostly Muggle used items. His department, a minor and derided subsection of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, lacked funding and his salary was insufficient to provide for a family of nine - leaving his family finances precarious. However, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, he has been promoted to Head of the Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects. His promotion was accompanied by a pay increase. Mr Weasley first officially appears in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, when Harry stays with the Weasley family during the summer before Hogwarts opens. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it seems that Arthur does not fully believe the stories of Harry's abuse at the hands of the Dursleys until he witnesses what they think about Harry and the Wizarding world, before taking him to the Quidditch World Cup. After that, he takes a more active interest in Harry's welfare.In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Mr Weasley is a member of the Order of the Phoenix and during one of his shifts in the Ministry of Magic the snake Nagini, which was acting under Voldemort’s control, attacks him. Harry, who is mentally connected with Voldemort, manages to see this in a vision and is able to warn the Hogwarts authorities. Arthur is subsequently saved just in time and sent to St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries. He was originally intended to die in that scene, but Rowling could not bear to kill him. He was also slated for death in the original draft for Harry Potter and the DeaThly Hallows. Rowling has said that part of the reason she could not kill Arthur as originally planned was that he is one of the only good fathers in the series. However, as she "wanted to kill parents," she spared Arthur's life in exchange for Remus Lupin's and Nymphadora Tonks's.

The Weasley family are a fictional family of wizards who figure prominently in the plot of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series of novels. This is primarily because the youngest son, Ron Weasley, is the best friend of Harry Potter.
The Weasleys were one of the few remaining pure-blood Wizarding families, though they were considered "blood traitors" for associating with non-pure-bloods. Moreover, they are far from rich, and are looked down upon by snobbish "old families" such as the Malfoys. The Weasleys have seven children, all of whom have red hair and freckles. All of the Weasleys have been sorted into Gryffindor House at Hogwarts. All of the Weasley children, except Bill and Percy who both were Head Boy, are known to have played on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, with Charlie being the captain of the team for at least one of his school years. Charlie, Bill, Percy and Ron were also chosen as the prefect of their House. The Weasleys also all work for the Order of the Phoenix, and all are members except for Ron, Percy, and Ginny, who (as of the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) are not known to officially have been inducted into the Order.

SOURCE2 number twelve, Grimmauld Place


The glass cabinets of the drawing room of this strange old house contained many items that seemed reluctant to leave their shelves. It is not known if these items were actually filled with Dark Magic or not, but some certainly seemed intent on causing harm. Other sinister items and objects were found throughout the house.

an ornate crystal bottle with a large opal set into the stopper, full of what looked like blood

boxes, made of tarnished silver and inscribed with languages Harry did not understand

dusty box containing an Order of Merlin First Class given to Sirius' grandfather for Services to the Ministry. Kreacher stole this back, but it was then stolen from him by Mundungus Fletcher after Sirius' death .

china with the Black crest and motto (evidently the same motto as that on the genealogical tapestry, which means "Always Pure" in French)


daggers, rusty

family photos in silver frames

a grandfather clock that shot heavy bolts at passers-by

a spidery instrument, rather like a many-legged tweezers, which scurried away and tried to puncture Harry's skin

a heavy locket that no one could open

a music box that played a faintly sinister, tinkling tune when wound that nearly knocked everyone out Kreacher stole this back, but it was then stolen from him by Mundungus Fletcher after Sirius' death

a ring, large and golden, bearing the Black family crest

an ancient set of purple robes that tried to strangle Ron when they were removed from their wardrobe

several ancient seals

snakeskin, coiled

Typical Dark Magic spells are called curses. There are offensive spells that shoot out of a wand like a gun; curse energy causes physical damage to things it hits besides the magical effect. Hexes and jinxes are lesser spells that adversely affect the target. As mentioned above, these spells are not necessarily Dark Magic. The intention of the caster is what actually makes the difference.

Dark Magic is more than simply curses, however. Magic that involves tampering with the free will of another person (e.g., the Imperius Curse), or which kills another person (e.g., Avada Kedavra) would be considered Dark Magic indeed. Voldemort spent years in magical research into ways of becoming immortal. This pursuit is also an example of Dark Magic, presumably because it tampers with the natural order of things.

The Dark Arts differ from other forms of magic in the intent of the wizard using it. Most magic is relatively neutral--it can be used for bad or good. Some magic, however, is evil in its intention through and through. Spells of this kind are often called curses. Curses are spells that are often intended to cause harm to another person. This intention to do harm places that spell into the realm of the Dark Arts. However, simply casting a Curse spell doesn't mean that a person is using the Dark Arts. Ultimately, the deep, true intention of the caster is what makes the difference.This is a difficult distinction to make in many cases. However, understanding the difference between acceptable and Dark magic is of key importance for witches and wizards in training, which is why Defence Against the Dark Arts is such an important class for students at Hogwarts. Some other schools have a reputation for teaching the Dark Arts, not simply Defence Against the Dark Arts; Durmstrang is such a school.
