Sirius Black is the third member of the infamous, playful group called the "Marauders" (according to the popular term 'MWPP'). He, along with James Potter
, Remus Lupin
, Peter Pettigrew
, Lily Evans
, and many more people went to Hogwarts
, a school located in Scotland. He served as Best Man to James Potter
's wedding (who married Lily Evans
, incidentally) after Hogwarts
. As well, he was wrongly accused for the murder of twelve Muggle
s and one wizard. He was also thought to have betrayed the Potters to Voldemort
, a Dark Wizard. As a result, he was sentenced to Azkaban
, a wizarding prison. He broke out twelve years later, in his godson's third year at Hogwarts
. Along with Harry Potter
, Ron Weasley
, Hermione Granger
, and Remus Lupin
, he attempted to procure Peter Pettigrew
, the man who framed Sirius for the aforementioned crimes. However, the full moon came, and sent Remus Lupin
, a werewolf, into a frenzy. Peter Pettigrew
got away, as a result, by changing into a rat. Sirius Black
was then recaptured, and he nearly had his soul sucked out by a dementor
. He was saved, though; he then flew away on a Hippogriff
For the next two years, Sirius remained in hiding. He served as a confidant to his godson, Harry Potter
, through letters and secret meetings. In Harry's fifth year, however, Sirius went to save Harry in a battle against Voldemort
and some of his Death Eater
s. Bellatrix Lestrange, a cousin of Sirius's as well as a Death Eater
, sent a spell towards Sirius. As a result, he fell beyond a dark veil, where he is presumed to be dead.
Sirius Black turned around at stared at him. He could not believe his eyes.
"I trusted you," he stuttered.
The man laughed bitterly. "You were always dim-witted, Sirius."
