George Weasley Character Analysis

One of the Weasley twins. Fred and George are the fourth and fifth Weasley children and as their three older brothers are well-behaved and successful, the twins take it upon themselves to get into as much trouble as possible. They're consummate jokesters and torment Percy especially. They give Harry the Marauder's Map, which they stole from Filch's office, so that he can visit Hogsmeade without a permission form. Fred and George also play Quidditch as Beaters.
