Teachers and parents! Struggling with distance learning? Our Teacher Edition on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix can help.
One of Harry's two best friends. Ron is a tall, gangly redhead and the sixth Weasley child. Though he's never been a great student and has gotten into nearly as much trouble at school as Harry, Dumbledore makes Ron a prefect. Ron struggles throughout the year with this. In some ways it validates him and makes him feel important, while at times, he resents the responsibility and doesn't want to be the kind of person who's made a prefect. Ron is an extremely loyal friend. He tears up Percy's letter when Percy suggests that Ron stop spending time with Harry, and he also supports Harry's attempts to speak to Sirius through the fireplace and later, to go to the Ministry to rescue Sirius. After receiving a new broomstick, Ron tries out for the position of Keeper on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, and gets it. However, because Ron isn't used to the taunts and the pressure of representing his house in Quidditch, he allows the Slytherins' cruel song "Weasley is our King" to get to him and he plays poorly for most of the year. He only starts playing well in the final game of the season, which neither Harry nor Hermione watch. Though Ron remains close to Harry throughout the school year, he's often on the receiving end of Harry's temper. This has to do with the fact that Ron consistently tells Harry to tell either McGonagall or Dumbledore about Harry's scar pain and his sense of being connected to Voldemort. Ron is disturbed when he learns that Snape is going to teach Harry Occlumency; he doesn't trust Snape and doesn't believe Harry should either. He's thrilled when Harry agrees to form Dumbledore's Army and dedicates himself to learning Defense Against the Dark Arts from a competent teacher. Ron throws himself behind Harry when Harry insists they save Sirius from the Department of Mysteries, though he soon becomes a liability. After a Death Eater hits him with a spell that makes Ron unable to think clearly, Ron summons brains out of a tank, and the brains' tentacles are very damaging to him. He later makes a full recovery, however.

"So, got there yet?" said George eagerly.

"The weapon Sirius mentioned?" said Harry.

"Let slip, more like," said Fred with relish, now sitting next to Ron. "We didn't hear about that on the old Extendables, did we?"

"What d'you reckon it is?" said Harry.

"Could be anything," said Fred.

"But there can't be anything worse than the Avada Kedavra curse, can there?" said Ron. "What's worse than death?"

Chapter Nine Quotes

Ron had not asked Dumbledore to give him the prefect badge. This was not Ron's fault. Was he, Harry, Ron's best friend in the world, going to sulk because he didn't have a badge, laugh with the twins behind Ron's back, ruin this for Ron when, for the first time, he had beaten Harry at something?

"I know her by reputation and I'm sure she's no Death Eater—"

"She's foul enough to be one," said Harry darkly and Ron and Hermione nodded vigorously in agreement.

"Yes, but the world isn't split into good people and Death Eaters," said Sirius with a wry smile. "I know she's a nasty piece of work, though—you should hear Remus talk about her."

"Does Lupin know her?" asked Harry quickly, remembering Umbridge's comments about dangerous half-breeds during her first lesson.

"No," said Sirius, "but she drafted a bit of anti-werewolf legislation two years ago that makes it almost impossible for him to get a job."

A great wave of relief broke over Harry. Here at last was proof that he had not imagined these creatures, that they were real: Hagrid knew about them too. He looked eagerly at Ron, but Ron was still staring around into the trees and after a few seconds he whispered, "Why doesn't Hagrid call again?"
