The matriarch of the Weasley family. She's short, plump, and has red hair like all of her children. Mrs. Weasley cares deeply for her family members and for their safety in particular, which is why she often does whatever she can to keep her children from getting themselves into dangerous situations, whether that be keeping Ron from planning with Harry and Hermione to forbidding Ginny from joining in the final battle at Hogwarts. She has a temper when she gets angry and Fred and George are often the recipients of her ire, as they enjoy tormenting her. Mrs. Weasley is a skilled cook and an accomplished witch; she kills Bellatrix Lestrange during the final battle after Bellatrix makes the mistake of trying to kill Ginny. Though it makes Harry uncomfortable, Mrs. Weasley treats him like a surrogate son and even gives him her brother's watch for his seventeenth birthday, which is a Wizarding tradition, but one that Harry would otherwise be shut out of, as he has no parents to give him such a gift.
