A character in JK Rowling's Harry Potter. He is introduced in the Prisoner of Azkaban as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, and is seen again in the Order of the Phoenix.

Remus was bitten by Fenrir Greyback as a young child which resulted in him becoming a werewolf. He went to Hogwarts school (after special measures were taken by Albus Dumbledore), and became best friends with Sirius Black, James Potter and Peter Pettigrew.

Remus joined the Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War. Because of his lycanthropy, he never got a job (until his post at Hogwarts), and James Potter helped him financially. Remus thought he lost all of his friends during this time period (James = dead, Sirius = the betrayer, Peter = Dead) but it is later proven that Sirius is innocent (and invites Remus to stay with him), and Peter is the real culprit.

During the Second Wizarding War, he becomes a spy for Dumbledore among the werewolves. He later marries Nymphadora Tonks, and after briefly leaving her, rejoins her and their son, Teddy. The two die in the final battle against Voldemort, leaving their child with Tonks' mother and to be Harry's godson.

Remus is often described as having golden eyes, light brown-grey hair and a prematurely lined face. He is often paired with Sirius Black, although it is proven his real love lies with Tonks. Remus is considered sexy, intelligent, compassionate, self-loathing, slightly idiotic at times, mature and funny.

Remus Lupin is a former professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts, goes by the name Moony by his best friends (James Potter, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew). He is a werewolf, and he transforms in the Shrieking Shack once a month. The werewolf who bit him was Fenrir Greyback.

In the marauder era, Lupin was romantically involved with his best friend Sirius Black. After Sirius was killed off in Order of the Phoenix, Remus tried to move on. He married Nymphadora Tonks, Sirius's cousin, in the hope that she would have similar traits as him, and as an experiment of his sexuality. Remus often feels down during the last years of his life because of this mistake.

Remus is often described as having amber eyes, and shaggy brown hair. He's covered in scars because of his transformations, and he's really powerful despite how skinny he is. Since nobody will hire a werewolf, he can't afford nice clothes, and they are often worn down and patchy.
Remus Lupin: God of chocolate and... homework.

The sexiest, hottest, most gorgeous werewolf ever to walk the face of this planet only to be made hotter by the fact that he actually CARES about people. Was friends with Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, and James Potter (whose son you might've heard of, seeing as he's the main character in one of the most famous pieces of literature ever).
Oh, 4:30, time to go snog Remus Lupin.

One of the MWPP. Werewolf at heart and body.

Sometimes Lupin does not know where he is, and it is thought that he drinks much ripple when alone.
Lupin: Odd, I feel slightly ill today. Might be a full moon a'coming.
Harry: Professor Lupin! The full moon is coming out early tonight! DON'T LOOK UP!
Lupin: Raaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwww!
Harry: Cannot speak because he is being devoured.
