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 has a serious thing for chocolate.
