I suggest to change the name of "Peter Pettigrew" to "Scabbers". See, what I am suggesting is to change only in this category and not the actual character's article. In my opinion, the Weasley family didn't own "Peter Pettigrew" but the animagus rat Scabbers. Andre G. Dias (talk) 22:22, February 25, 2014 (Brazil)

The trouble being that a page is added to a category from the page itself, not from the category. For instance, on the "Peter Pettigrew" article, you'll see links to categories at the bottom. If you click "Edit" on this category, you'll only see the summary, not the pages, because the pages are at their current titles. We can't change them. To make a long story short, if we wanted "Peter Pettigrew to show up as "Scabbers" here, we'd have to change the name of his article. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:37, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Yes check DoneScabbers is a redirect page. If you add a category to a redirect page, it will show up in the category under the name of the redirect page, not the name of the page to which it redirects (although it will be in italics rather than plain text).

The way it is now, I think it's correct, but talking about what was pointed out, maybe what could be done is keep the name Scabbers, the way it is now, and insert in the word a link to the page "Peter Pettigrew" (and not to the redirect page "Scabbers").
