George Weasley Character Analysis

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 give up their jobs as joke shop owners in order to fight Voldemort as part of the resistance movement. George is one of the first people injured; during Harry's flight from the Dursleys', Snape curses off one of George's ears. True to form, George makes a joke about it as soon as he's reunited with Fred, though Fred insists that the joke isn't very good. George is distraught when Fred dies.
