Teachers and parents! Struggling with distance learning? Our Teacher Edition on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows can help.
One of Harry's best friends and the second youngest Weasley child. Ron is tall with red hair, and he's extremely protective of the women in his life—he makes a number of gallant yet ultimately silly attempts to protect Hermione, and he also calls Harry out on messing around with his younger sister, Ginny. Though Ron is extremely loyal to Harry and insists on coming with him to help with the hunt for Horcruxes, Ron proves a difficult person to be on the run with. While things go fine at Grimmauld Place with Kreacher to cook for them, Ron becomes mean and nasty while camping due to a lack of food and not having a warm bed. He's the most significantly affected by the locket Horcrux and, one evening, he leaves Harry and Hermione in a towering rage. However, he later is able to come back thanks to the Deluminator that Dumbledore left him in his will. When he tries to destroy the locket Horcrux, the locket gives voice to Ron's deepest fears: that nobody likes him, that he's unintelligent, and especially that Harry and Hermione are romantically involved. While none of these things are entirely true, Ron has spent his life feeling insignificant and unloved as the youngest of six brothers and especially as Harry's best friend, since Harry is famous and gets all the attention. Though Ron also isn't unintelligent, his critical thinking skills are questionable at times. Following his return to Harry and Hermione, Ron begins to come into himself and his leadership skills and starts to take charge. He remains unwaveringly loyal to Dumbledore, even when Harry struggles to do the same, and is willing to forgive Dumbledore's youthful transgressions and concentrates instead on all of the good that Dumbledore did in his later years. Ron truly comes of age in Hermione's eyes when he suggests that they need to evacuate the house-elves from Hogwarts. Ron and Hermione later marry and have two children. In his late thirties, Ron seems to have come to terms with his lack of fame, but suggests that he still holds onto some childhood grudges.

Chapter Ten Quotes

"Elf magic isn't like wizard's magic, is it?" said Ron. "I mean, they can Apparate and Disapparate in and out of Hogwarts when we can't."

There was silence as Harry digested this. How could Voldemort have made such a mistake? But even as he thought this, Hermione spoke, and her voice was icy.

"Of course, Voldemort would have considered the ways of house-elves far beneath his notice, just like all the purebloods who treat them like animals...It would never have occurred to him that they might have magic that he didn't."

Chapter Fifteen Quotes

The rain was pounding the tent, tears were pouring down Hermione's face, and the excitement of a few minutes before had vanished as if it had never been, a short-lived firework that had flared and died, leaving everything dark, wet, and cold. The sword of Gryffindor was hidden they knew not where, and they were three teenagers in a tent whose only achievement was not, yet, to be dead.

Chapter Nineteen Quotes

He was not being kind or generous. As certainly as he had known that the doe was benign, he knew that Ron had to be the one to wield the sword. Dumbledore had at least taught Harry something about certain kinds of magic, of the incalculable power of certain acts.

Chapter Twenty Quotes

Ron looked a little embarrassed, but said in a low voice, "Dumbledore...the doe? I mean," Ron was watching Harry out of the corners of his eyes, "he had the real sword last, didn't he?"

Harry did not laugh at Ron, because he understood too well the longing behind the question. The idea that Dumbledore had managed to come back to them, that he was watching over them, would have been inexpressibly comforting. He shook his head.

Explanation and Analysis:

"Sometimes I've thought, when I've been a bit hacked off, he was having a laugh or—or he just wanted to make it more difficult. But I don't think so, not anymore. He knew what he was doing when he gave me the Deluminator, didn't he?" He—well, [...] he must've known I'd run out on you."

"No," Harry corrected him. "He must've known you'd always want to come back."

Explanation and Analysis:
Chapter Twenty-Nine Quotes

Dumbledore had warned him against telling anyone but Ron and Hermione about the Horcruxes. Secrets and lies, that's how we grew up, and Albus...he was a natural...Was he turning into Dumbledore, keeping his secrets clutched to his chest, afraid to trust? But Dumbledore had trusted Snape, and where had that led? To murder at the top of the highest tower...

"All right," he said quietly to the other two.
