During the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Tonks fired spells down on the Death Eaters in the Death Room, but was hit by a spell and injured severely. She recovered from her wounds after a stay in St. Mungo's. She was sufficiently healed to join Mad-Eye and Lupin on the platform in King's Cross as they met Harry from the train. However, a few months later when Harry meets her at the Burrow, it is clear that Tonks is extremely unhappy. She has let her hair go a mousy brown, and looks "drawn, even ill." Harry at first supposes that she is distraught over Sirius' death but finds out later that she has fallen in love with Remus Lupin.During Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts, Tonks was stationed there along with Aurors Proudfoot, Savage, and Dawlish to guard the school. She fought in the Battle of the Tower.Lupin and Tonks were married. He regretted this afterwards because he feared what association with him would do to his wife and her family. When Tonks became pregnant that fall, he was terrified that he had brought doom on Tonks and the unborn child and considered leaving her in the care of her parents. He didn’t leave, and the baby was born healthy some months later. They named him Teddy after her father. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Tonks followed Lupin to join the battle. Both she and her husband were killed, Tonks struck down by her aunt, Bellatrix Lestrange. Teddy was raised by his grandmother, Andromeda Tonks.
