===Early life (2006 - 2017)===
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.

In 2014, Albus attended the finals of the [[2014 Quidditch World Cup|427th Quidditch World Cup]] with his father, brother, sister and mother in the [[Patagonian Desert]].<ref name="the-qwc2014-final"/> He, along with his older brother James, was introduced to [[Bulgaria]]n [[Seeker]] [[Viktor Krum]] by his father and they stayed for a half-hour chat and then returned to their campsite to socialise with the rest of [[Dumbledore's Army]].<ref name="dumbledores-army-reunites">''[[Pottermore]]'' - [http://www.pottermore.com/en/daily-prophet/qwc2014/2014-07-08/dumbledores-army-reunites New from J.K.

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 paternal grandmother's green eyes.

At the final proper, Albus wore green clothes in support of [[Brazil]], while the rest of his family (minus his mother, [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]], who was in the journalists' enclosure) sported [[Bulgaria]]n red. According to his mother, this was due to him being a great fan of Brazilian [[Chaser]] [[Gonçalo Flores]].<ref name="the-qwc2014-final"/> He almost toppled out of the [[VIP Box Two|VIP box]] cheering when Flores scored the first goal of the game but his uncle [[Ron]] grabbed the back of his robes and saved him.

  +
  +
After Bulgaria won the tournament, Albus was seen applauding; Rita Skeeter reported it was due to his "publicity-hungry" father's prompting. This seems to have been the final straw for [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Potter]], who was by Skeeter on the journalists' enclosure, and who jinxed her mid-sentence.<ref name="the-qwc2014-final"/>

"Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew."
—Harry Potter regarding his son's fear of being Sorted into Slytherin.[src]

Albus Severus "Al" Potter (b. 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 Sirius, and two years before his younger sister Lily Luna. He was named in memory of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape.

BiographyEdit

Early life (2006 - 2017)Edit

Born in around 2006,[1] Albus became Neville Longbottom's godson.[4]

In 2014, Albus attended the finals of the 427th Quidditch World Cup with his father, brother, sister and mother in the Patagonian Desert.[4] He, along with his older brother James, was introduced to Bulgarian Seeker Viktor Krum by his father and they stayed for a half-hour chat and then returned to their campsite to socialise with the rest of Dumbledore's Army.[5]

At the final proper, Albus wore green clothes in support of Brazil, while the rest of his family (minus his mother, Ginny, who was in the journalists' enclosure) sported Bulgarian red. According to his mother, this was due to him being a great fan of Brazilian Chaser Gonçalo Flores.[4] He almost toppled out of the VIP box cheering when Flores scored the first goal of the game but his uncle Ron grabbed the back of his robes and saved him. James laughed and Rita Skeeter, who was reporting on it, noted that he may have pushed his young brother, although their father seemed unconcerned and just handed Albus one of Luna's treats.[4] Harry's lack of concern is, perhaps, an indication of Skeeter's blown-up report of that particular incident.

After Bulgaria won the tournament, Albus was seen applauding; Rita Skeeter reported it was due to his "publicity-hungry" father's prompting. This seems to have been the final straw for Ginny Potter, who was by Skeeter on the journalists' enclosure, and who jinxed her mid-sentence.[4]

Hogwarts (2017 - )Edit

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.[6]

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 and father's bright green, almond-shape 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

" What if I am in Slytherin? The whisper was for his father alone [...] "
—Albus's confides in Harry, his father[src]
HARRY-AND-GINNY-the-half-blood-prince-4518417-454-3891

Harry and Ginny, his future mother and father

Albus had a very 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 he looked to him for advice and comfort. He also convited in him things he would no one else, such as as how very real his fear of being in Slytherin was. When saying goodbye to him, he hugged him and appeared to be holding his arm "extremely tight", he also waved to him as the train glided away from the station.

SiblingsEdit

James: "I only said he might be. There's nothing wrong with that."

Albus with his siblings, James and Lily, and parents, Harry and Ginny

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.

Neville LongbottomEdit

"The same cannot be said for Neville Longbottom, who appears to be spiritedly describing the precise manner in which Krum sustained his nosebleed for the benefit of his godson, Albus Potter."
Rita Skeeter, reporting from the 2014 Quidditch World Cup final.[src]

Neville Longbottom was Albus Potter's godfather.[4]

Potter's Field is the name for a burial ground for the unknown or unclaimed dead, particularly soldiers and orphans; the Potter family had many members that fit that description. The Potter Box is a model for making ethical decisions developed at Harvard University.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Arthur Bowen portrays Albus in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
  • J. K. Rowling has stated that she finds Albus the most "interesting" of Harry's children, possibly because of his physical and mental similarities with his father, Harry Potter.
  • The fact that Albus was the only of Harry's children to inherit Lily Evans’s eyes could be interpreted as a symbolic reference to Albus’ namesake, Severus Snape, who loved Lily and was notably fond of her eyes.
  • In the movie, Albus had a pet ferret.
  • Albus speaks the last line of the film series: "Ready."
    • Coincidentally, his namesake Albus Dumbledore spoke the first line of the film series.
  • In the film, Albus is the first of the Next Generation characters to speak, the second being Rose and the third being James.
