Mr. Weasley Character Analysis

Ron's dad and a Ministry employee in the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts office. A lanky, redheaded man, he must carefully balance his love for his family and his desire to protect them with his involvement in the Order of the Phoenix. He fully supports Harry's journey to look for Horcruxes, though he doesn't know exactly what the quest entails, and he shows Ron that he trusts him to make his own choices by helping to transform the Weasleys' ghoul into "Ron" with spattergroit, a deadly, disgusting, and extremely contagious illness as a cover for Ron's absence.
