Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week was a freebie to celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday. I decided to look at the father’s of some of our favourite Harry Potter characters.
- James Potter.
Obviously I had to start with the patriarch of the Potter clan- I know he’s dead by the time we meet Harry but he’s still a large part of Harry being who he is.
- Arthur Weasley.
My FAVOURITE Dad in the Harry Potter series. I just love Arthur Weasley- his love for muggle things, his love for his wife and kids- a truly magnificent father!
- Lucius Malfoy
Okay, so this one isn’t one of the nicer fathers, but I think we can all agree that Draco wanted to impress his father. I mean, Lucius being a Death Eater probably didn’t help how his son turned out.
- Remus Lupin
These are in no particular order or Remus would be higher, but again, he becomes a father- to Teddy Lupin- but unfortunately, like his friend James, doesn’t live long enough to see his son grow up :c
- Xenophilius Lovegood
Luna is just as sane as her father- and he clearly cares for her, and I love this characterisation of the Lovegood’s because it goes to show that after her mother died, she and her father formed a really close bond!
- Vernon Dursley
I mean, he had to be on here at some point right? Technically he acts as Harry’s father during his guardianship…..it’s not his fault he was a grumpy old Muggle.
- Sirius Black
Okay- not an ACTUAL father, but he was Harry’s GodFATHER and FATHER figure- so I think I’ve made my point clear.
- Harry Potter
Our beloved hero grows up to have children of his own! Albus, James and Lily.
- Ron Weasley
Ron ends up marrying Hermione, and having two children. Rose and Hugo.
- Draco Malfoy
Draco has a son, Scorpius, with Astoria Greengrass. Although not technically canon, Scorpius, Albus and Rose all have their own adventures at Hogwarts in The Cursed Child so I felt I had to include their fathers on the list.
And that’s my list!
I’m sure there were plenty more fathers I could have included, but I chose the most memorable. Hope you enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday!
