Remus John Lupin, also known as Moony, was a half-blood wizard and the only son of Lyall and Hope Lupin. He was afflicted with lycanthropy during his childhood, as Fenrir Greyback’s revenge against Lyall. He attended Hogwarts and was Sorted into Gryffindor house. During his school years, he was one of the Marauders; best friends with Sirius Black, James Potter, and Peter Pettigrew. Together they created the Marauder’s Map. After Hogwarts, Remus and his friends joined the Order of the Phoenix and fought in the First Wizarding War.
Sirius Black, also known as Padfoot and Snuffles in his Animagus form, was a pure-blood wizard, son of Orion and Walburga Black and elder brother of Regulus by a little over a year. Although he was the heir of the House of Black, Sirius disagreed with his family’s belief in blood purity and defied tradition when he was sorted into Gryffindor instead of Slytherin at Hogwarts. As Sirius’ relationship with his relatives deteriorated, he gained great friendship in James Potter, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew. The four friends, also known as the Marauders, joined the Order of the Phoenix to fight against Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters during the First Wizarding War.
Severus Snape was a half-blood wizard who was the son of the witch Eileen and Muggle Tobias Snape. He was member of the Order of the Phoenix and played a very important role in both of the Wizarding Wars against Lord Voldemort. Despite Severus Snape’s wizarding heritage, he was raised in the Muggle dwelling of Spinner’s End, which was in close proximity to the home of the Evans family. He met Lily and Petunia Evans when he was nine, and fell deeply in love with Lily, becoming a close friend of hers. Snape developed a passion for the Dark Arts at a young age, and had followed the pure-blood supremacists in Slytherin House, despite his own marred pedigree and his love for Lily, a Muggle-born. This put his friendship with Lily under great strain. After leaving school he joined the Death Eaters along with a large group of his fellow Slytherins.
James Potter, also known as Prongs, was a pure-blood wizard and son of Mr and Mrs Potter. When James started at Hogwarts, he met and befriended fellow Gryffindor students Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew. He also met Severus Snape, a Slytherin student whom he frequently antagonised, and Lily Evans, a fellow Gryffindor whom James fell in love with. During his seventh year, James was appointed Head Boy and began dating Lily Evans, whom he later married. Together, they had a son named Harry. James, Lily, and their friends all fought in the First Wizarding War as members of the Order of the Phoenix; he and his wife defied Lord Voldemort three times.
Lily Potter (née Evans) was a Muggle-born witch, the younger daughter of Mr and Mrs Evans and the younger sister of Petunia. She learned that she was a witch as a child, after Severus Snape, a wizard boy who lived nearby, recognised her as a witch and told her of the existence of magic. After Hogwarts, Lily married James Potter and they had a son, Harry. The couple and their best friends (Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew) all joined the Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War; she and her husband defied Lord Voldemort himself three times.
