Ronald Ron Weasley is a fictional character from the Harry Potter Universe


[edit] Background

Full Name: Ronald "Ron" Bilius Weasley
Birthday: March 1st 1980
Additional Information: Ron's parents are Arthur and Molly Weasley, members of a well-known pure-blood Wizarding family. He is the sixth of seven children, and is the youngest son. Ron grew up in The Burrow (a magical "house" which looks much worse from the outside than it really is). Although he is from the family of poor wizards he is a generous person and a very loyal friend to Harry Potter. (he's his best friend along with Hermione) Ron is the second youngest child in the Weasley family. He has a younger sister, Ginny Weasley, twin older brothers, Fred and George Weasley, and three more older brothers, Bill, Charlie, and Percy Weasley. His father's name is Arthur Weasley and his mother's Molly Weasley. Ron grew up in a seven story house called The Burrows with his whole family. Charlie and Bill eventually moved out of the house once they left Hogwarts. With so many excellent wizards in his family preceding him the only thing Ron wishes is some attention, as he is the youngest of the six brothers, and a better attitude from the others (possibly without comparing him to his older brothers).

[edit] History

Ron was first introduced at the train station when Harry was having trouble finding Platform 9 3/4. Harry noticed that the Weasley's were wizards, so he asked Molly for help. Once Harry and the Weasley's successfully entered Platform 9 3/4, Ron boarded the train by himself in search for a cabin to sit in. Seeing that most cabins had been filled, he finally managed to find one at the end of the train, where Harry was already sitting. They introduced themselves, and Ron asked to see the scar, Harry showed him and from that point on became friends-only after his twin brothers had helped Harry with his luggage and he thought it was some kind of joke

During his first year, Ron was sorted into Gryffindor, and the hat said "ah another Weasley" before sorting him. Ron knocked out a Troll using the levitation spell, taking his club from him, and bashing him over the head with it. For this act he received 5 points. Professor McGonagall said that it was "Sheer Dumb Luck". Ron had to stay at Hogwarts for his first Christmas because his parents had gone to visit his brother. When Ron looked into the Mirror of Erised he saw himself as Head Boy, holding the Quidditch cup, and he was Quidditch Captain. When Harry, Hermione, and Ron where found at Hagrids after hours, they each had 50 points taken, and where given detention, to go help Hagrid in the Forbidden Forest-in the book Ron was in the common room and it was Harry, Hermione, Neville and Draco who were given detention since Harry and Hermione had forgot the invisibility cloak at the astronomy tower where they had taken Norbert to give to Charlie's friends. When the went through the trap door, Ron couldn't relax in the Devils Snare, and had to be rescued by Hermione (In the book after Harry said "So light a fire" and Hermione said "of course but there no wood"-Ron says "ARE YOU MAD!? ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?). In the next room Ron tried to open the door with a spell, but it failed. After they got through that room- in the book there were three broomsticks since Ron and Hermione helped Harry get the key), the next room was a giant chess board. Ron took up the position of Knight on the board, Harry took place of the bishop and Hermione Castle, and then played the game of chess, sacrificing his own piece in order for Harry to check the king and win the game. At the end of the year during Dumbledores speech and awarding of the House Cup, recent events where taken into account and Ron received 50 points for "the best played game of chess that Hogwarts has seen these many years".

[edit] Wands

Ron has used three wands during the stories, those being 1 of his own, and one of his brother's and one from Pettigrew. His first want was Ash, 12", unicorn tail hair which he had at the start of Hogwarts, it was his brothers old wand, but he broke it early on in his second year, causing many failed spells such as when he attempted to Curse Draco and the spell backfired hitting himself. After this wand he owned a Willow, 14", Unicorn tail hair wand, which was bought for him with the winnings from a Daily Prophet draw just after his second year. This wand was taken from him when he was captured by the Snatchers. His third wand he used was Chestnut, 9¼", Dragon heart string which belonged to Peter Pettigrew. This was obtained when escaping from the Malfoy's house.

[edit] Appearence

Ron has the typical Weasley family traits, which are fiery red hair and a freckled complexion. When he is embarrassed his ears turn red. He has blue eyes and a long nose. He is described as being very tall, with large hands and feet.
