Mundungus Fletcher Character Analysis

Though Mundungus is a member of the Order of the Phoenix, he's not especially brave or even all that committed to the cause—he's better known as a thief and a cheat, but he was brought into the Order because of his knowledge of other criminals. He is easily manipulated and is also extremely cowardly: Mundungus panics during the move and Disapparates, leading to Mad-Eye Moody's death.
