Has anybody else realized that Teddy Lupin contains a small part of each of the Marauders (the real ones, that is – minus Wormtail) in some way? He’s Remus’ son, Sirius’ great-nephew (I think? Because Tonks was Sirius’s niece), and James’ god-grandson (grand-godson?) He’s also half-werewolf and half-Metamorphmagus. All that pretty much makes him the coolest next-generation character I can imagine.
Thinking about what his life would have been like raises a lot of questions in my mind. How is being Harry Potter’s godson and also the son of a werewolf going to work out for him? Does he really inherit Remus’ condition? What effect does he have on Harry? And does winning the second war against Voldemort change the wizarding world’s attitude towards house-elves, goblins, and other mixed-breed and non-human magical creatures at all?
I think Jo intentionally left his character ambiguous. We never actually see him in person, as a baby or as the full-grown adult he is in the epilogue. The most we fans can do is imagine…sigh.
