On [[1 September]], [[2017]], Albus left for his first year at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]] along with his brother, his cousin, [[Rose Weasley]], as well as [[Scorpius Malfoy]]. His older brother, James, had been at Hogwarts for at least a year already. Before boarding the [[Hogwarts Express]], Albus confided to his father that he feared he might be Sorted into [[Slytherin]]. In response, his father told him that the bravest man he ever knew — [[Severus Snape]], whom Albus was named after — had been a Slytherin. Harry also told Albus that if he preferred [[Gryffindor]], then the [[Sorting Hat]] would take this choice into account, as it did for him.

"Albus Severus Potter, you were named after two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was the bravest man I ever knew."
—Harry Potter to his son on his fears of being sorted into Slytherin[src]

Albus Severus "Al" Potter (born between 1 September, 2005 and 31 August, 2006) was a half-blood wizard and the second son of Harry and Ginny Potter (née Weasley). Albus was the middle of three children, born at least a year after his older brother James, and two years before his younger sister Lily. He was named in memory of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape.

BiographyEdit

On 1 September, 2017, Albus left for his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry along with his brother, his cousin Rose Weasley, as well as Scorpius Malfoy. His older brother, James, had been at Hogwarts for at least a year already. Before boarding the Hogwarts Express, Albus confided to his father that he feared he might be Sorted into Slytherin. In response, his father told him that the bravest man he ever knew — Severus Snape, after whom Albus was named — had been a Slytherin student. Harry also told Albus that if he preferred Gryffindor, then the Sorting Hat would take this choice into account, as it did for him.

Physical appearanceEdit

Albus looks much like his father, with untidy black hair, a thin face, and short stature. Albus is the only Potter child to inherit his grandmother's green eyes.

PersonalityEdit

"I won't! I won't be in Slytherin!"
—Albus Potter[src]

Albus is a quiet, kind and thoughtful young boy, unlike his loud older brother. He seems to have inherited some of his father's personality, including his irrational and childish fear of being Sorted into Slytherin house. It seems that Albus has the closest relationship with his father out of his siblings. He seems to have an interest in his father's fame and past, as it seems that he inherited the paternal line of curiosity.

RelationshipsEdit

ParentsEdit

Albus had an especially close relationship with his parents. When he felt insecure about attending Hogwarts for the first time and worried he would be in Slytherin, his father and mother reassured him when his uncle Ron jokingly threatened to disinherit his cousin Rose if she wasn't sorted into Gryffindor house.

Albus liked to stay next to his father and looked to him for advice and comfort. When saying goodbye to him, he was seen to be holding his arm "extremely tight".

SiblingsEdit

Ginny: "James, give it a rest!"
James: "I only said he might be. There's nothing wrong with that."
James teasing Albus[src]

Albus' older brother seems to enjoy teasing him. Though the boys are close in age, James has a more outgoing personality, while Albus is quiet, and seems to be more like his younger sister. All three siblings share the opinion that Teddy Lupin, Harry's godson, would make a great addition to the family if he eventually married Victoire Weasley.

James is willing to move into Albus's room if Teddy moves in; Harry, however, thinks such an act would be a disaster, saying that James and Albus "will share a room only when I want the house demolished." This might imply that James and Albus frequently argue with one another – more than what is seen at King's Cross in 2017, anyway.

CousinsEdit

Albus and his cousin, Rose, are close in age and in the same year at Hogwarts. Just like Lily and Hugo, they seem to be quite close, and shared worry over where they would be Sorted. When Rose arrived at King's Cross Station to head off to her and Albus' first year, Albus was "immensely relieved" to see her and Rose beamed at him.

EtymologyEdit

The Potter Box is a model for making ethical decisions developed at Harvard University.

Behind the scenesEdit
