George Weasley Character Analysis

One of the Weasley twins. As far as anyone else is concerned, he and Fred are middling students and don't take their education seriously--they did poorly on their O.W.L.s last year, which proves this to Mrs. Weasley. However, as they begin to develop joke wands and candies with the hope of starting a joke shop, Ron and Ginny are surprised at how competent and skilled the twins actually are. Fred and George bet their entire savings on the outcome of the Quidditch World Cup with Ludo Bagman and spend most of the novel trying to make him follow through on the bet--he initially paid them back in leprechaun gold and later refused to refund their money. Harry gives Fred and George his Triwizard Tournament winnings on the Hogwarts Express at the end of school so they can start their joke shop.
