Bill Weasley Character Analysis

One of Ron's older brothers. A few months before the start of the novel, the werewolf Fenrir Greyback mauled Bill. Though Bill isn't a werewolf, he has some wolfish tendencies and his face is severely scarred. He marries Fleur over the summer and, after their wedding, the couple retreat to Shell Cottage on the coast, which they run as a safe house. A former treasure hunter for Gringotts, Bill cautions Harry about working with goblins and introduces him to some of the ways in which goblins see the world differently from wizards.
