Percy Weasley Character Analysis

One of Ron's older brothers. Two years ago, Percy took his love of rules, regulations, and order to the extreme by pledging his allegiance to the Ministry and disowning his family. When Harry sees him at the Ministry when the trio sneaks in, Percy appears to still fully believe in his actions. Right before the final battle, however, Percy arrives and explains that he regrets his actions and has been trying to figure out a safe way to get out of the Ministry for a while. He fights valiantly in the battle and helps Harry move Fred's body after Fred dies.
