One of the Weasley twins, who are two years older than Ron. Both Fred and George act and think very much alike, and they use the fact that they're identical in most ways to torment Mrs. Weasley and other adults. The twins appear to give up their jobs as the owners of their joke shop in order to be a part of the resistance movement and fight Voldemort. Fred is one of the hosts of Potterwatch, where he uses his joking nature to poke fun at the Death Eaters and spread information about Voldemort. Fred dies suddenly and shockingly early on in the final battle at Hogwarts.
