Fleur Isabelle Weasley (née Delacour) (born c. [[1977]]) was a [[France|French]], quarter-Veela witch daughter of [[Delacour sisters' father|Monsieur]] and [[Apolline Delacour]] and elder sister of [[Gabrielle Delacour|Gabrielle]].

Fleur competed bravely (though failing to complete the second task), but the Tournament ended in tragedy with the murder of [[Cedric Diggory]] and the return of [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]. In the following summer, Fleur took a part-time job at [[Gringotts Wizarding Bank]] to improve her English, and began dating co-worker, [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]]. The pair soon became engaged and Fleur stayed at [[the Burrow]] in the summer of [[1996]] to get to know Bill's [[Weasley family|family.]]

Fleur grew up in France, with her parents and sister, [[Gabrielle Delacour|Gabrielle]], and began attending the [[Beauxbatons Academy of Magic]] around [[1988]].
+
Fleur was quarter-veela and grew up in France, with her parents Monsieur Delacour and her half-veela mother Apolline Delacour. She had a younger sister, [[Gabrielle Delacour|Gabrielle]] and began attending the [[Beauxbatons Academy of Magic]] at some point in her childhood. It can be assumed that some time before the start of her schooling she purchased her wand which has a core of veela hair, from her maternal grandmother.
   
====The Triwizard Tournament====

===[[Beauxbatons Academy of Magic]]===
[[File:Fleur-delacour.jpg|thumb|left|Fleur upon her arrival at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1994]]In [[1994]], along with Beauxbatons' Headmistress Madame, [[Olympe Maxime]], and a dozen other Beauxbatons students, she travelled to [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]] to enter the [[Triwizard Tournament]], arriving in a huge, blue chariot pulled by roughly a dozen flying horses on October 30th at around 6:00 pm. During the welcoming feast on the same day, she laughed derisively during [[Albus Dumbledore]]'s speech, and asked [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] to pass her the bouillabaisse when she left her spot with her classmates at the Ravenclaw table to find the food with the Gryffindors. On her way back, many boys, including Ron, watched her.<ref name="GF" />
 
   
Fleur placed her name in the [[Goblet of Fire]], and during the Halloween Feast, she was selected as the Beauxbatons Champion. While waiting for further instructions in a small room off the Great Hall, she learned that the Goblet of Fire had selected a fourth Champion — [[Harry Potter]]. At first, she thought that he had been sent to call the Champions back in the main hall. [[File:Choooo.jpg|thumb|Fleur beside Cho Chang at the Start Of Term Feast.]] When [[Ludovic Bagman|Ludo Bagman]] told her what happened, she first thought he was joking, then was surprised and outraged that they were to let a ''"little boy"'' compete in the Tournament. <ref name="GF" /> Prior to the First Task, Fleur took part in the [[Wand Weighing ceremony]] presided over by [[Garrick Ollivander]]. After being handed the wand, it produced pink and gold sparks and was confirmed, by Fleur, to contain a veela hair core from her grandmother. Ollivander, who considered [[Fleur Delacour's wand|her wand]] to be "inflexible", then tested it and determined it to be in great working condition when it produced a bouquet of flowers without problem. Fleur's entrance into the Tournament was overshadowed in the ''[[Daily Prophet]]'' due to Harry Potter's participation, and the only mention of her was in the last line of the article — and [[Rita Skeeter]] even spelled her name wrong. <ref name="GF" />

Forewarned by Madame Maxime that the First Task would involve [[dragon]]s, Fleur was resigned to facing that fact on November 24th. She drew the [[Common Welsh Green]] and the second turn. Facing her dragon after [[Cedric Diggory]], she managed to lure it into a sleeping trance. However, the dragon snored and released a jet of flame that set her skirt on fire.

====The Yule Ball and Second Task====
On the 24th of February, Fleur participated in the Second Task. Having figured out the clue in the [[Golden egg]] and understanding the need to breathe underwater for an hour, she chose to use the [[Bubble-Head Charm]]. During the Task, she was attacked by [[Grindylow]]s and was forced to retire. Back on dry land, she learned that her sister, [[Gabrielle Delacour|Gabrielle]], was the "hostage" that she had to rescue, and became increasingly concerned for her safety, and guilty at her own failure to rescue her. She was overjoyed when Harry, determined to rescue all the hostages, not just his own, returned to the surface with both

Then, upon learning that she had been awarded twenty-five points, remarked that she deserved zero. After the two tasks, Fleur was in last place going into the Third Task.<ref name="GF" />

[[File:Bilsmarried.jpg|thumb|Fleur with Bill in 1997.]]

In the June of [[1997]], during the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]], Bill was brutally savaged by the [[werewolf]], [[Fenrir Greyback]], but fortunately not at full moon, so Bill did not become a werewolf though he did inherit some wolf-like qualities. Fleur rushed to Hogwarts with Bill's parents, and was shaken by Bill's scarred face. However, Fleur railed at Mrs. Weasley's assumption that she would not now want to marry Bill since he was no longer attractive. Taking offence, she criticised both the idea that she would not wish to marry him out of vanity, and that his feelings may have changed towards her because of possible [[werewolf]] contamination. In fact, she took pride in his wounds as living proof of his bravery, and stated she didn't care about how he looked as she was "beautiful enough for both of them", and all the wounds showed was that her husband was brave. Mrs. Weasley, finally seeing that Fleur and Bill were truly in [[love]], reconciled with her future daughter-in-law over Bill's hospital bed, and offered Fleur the use of her Aunt [[Muriel]]'s [[goblin]]-made [[Muriel's tiara|tiara]] for her wedding day. In the days following, Fleur took care of Bill as he recovered from his injuries, and attended the funeral of [[Albus Dumbledore]].<ref name="HP" />

In June [[1997]], during the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]], Bill was brutally savaged by the [[werewolf]] [[Fenrir Greyback]]. Because Greyback was not transformed, Bill did not become a werewolf, but rather developed some wolf-like qualities. Fleur rushed to Hogwarts with Bill's parents, and was shaken by Bill's scarred face. She railed at Mrs Weasley's assumption that she would not now want to marry Bill since he was no longer attractive. Taking offence, she criticised both the idea that she would not wish to marry him out of vanity, and that his feelings may have changed towards her because of possible [[werewolf]] contamination.

Three days before Harry's seventeenth birthday in [[1997]], Fleur was part of the effort to get Harry safely to [[the Burrow]] and participated in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters|battle]] that ensued. She took the role of a fake Harry, using [[Polyjuice Potion]] to take on his appearance. Paired with Bill, the two were to fly north on a [[Thestral]] in an effort to fool any [[Death Eaters]]. After departing, Fleur witnessed the death of [[Alastor Moody]] as the Death Eaters descended on them in an effort to capture Harry. Fleur and Bill were chased by half a dozen Death Eaters, but managed to escape and return to [[the Burrow]] and relay the news. Fleur was upset over Moody's death, and voiced the opinion that someone may have betrayed them, as the Death Eaters seemed to know the plan to escort Harry to safety.<ref name="DH" />

Fleur was portrayed as quite arrogant and conceited in her daily life. Because of her beauty, she saw herself as a cut above most others. For instance, when [[Ron Weasley]] asked her to go to the Yule Ball with him, she "looked at him as though he were a sea slug." She frequently treating people around her with condescension and often outright rudeness, such as making insulting comments about the state of Hogwarts Christmas decorations and Mrs. Weasley's home. <ref name="GF" />
Fleur had a very blunt nature, expressing herself in no uncertain terms. She always spoke her mind and often came off as rather arrogant and snobbish.

Fleur was very strong-willed and independent, as seen on numerous occasions.

In 1997, after the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]] - when her fiancé [[William Weasley]] was in the hospital wing - Fleur insisted on treating his wounds herself, taking the ointment from [[Molly Weasley]].

Her only redeeming feature seemed to be her genuine concern for her sister, [[Gabrielle Delacour|Gabrielle]], as seen when she fought to return to the water to save her despite having previously suffered an attack by [[Grindylows]] in the Second Task of the [[Triwizard Tournament]].

At times she could be a bit self-absorbed but if someone she cared about was in danger she would always try to help them.
   
Fleur could also be very warm and caring; she fretted over the safety of those she loved.<ref name="GF" /> She also cried over the death of [[Alastor Moody]] following the flight from Little Whinging.<ref name="DH" /> Fleur was also fiercely loyal. Having never forgotten that Harry once saved her sister's life, she volunteered to escort Harry from [[4 Privet Drive]] summer of [[1997]]. She also allowed him to stay at her [[Shell Cottage|home]], and even honoured his request that the [[goblin]], [[Griphook]], be allowed to stay. While she played host to Harry, Hermione, Ron and the others at her home, Harry noticed she had become a lot more like her mother-in-law, Molly Weasley, in traits such as worrying and fussing in a motherly fashion over him and his friends.<ref name="DH" />

Fleur treated [[Harry Potter]] patronisingly at first, partly because she felt he was too young to participate in the [[Triwizard Tournament]], and also because she believed, like most everyone else, that he must have cheated his way in for personal glory. However, after he rescued her sister from the lake in the second task of the tournament, she began to take him more seriously (despite her sister never having been in any real danger).<ref name="GF" /> While she stayed at the Burrow, Harry seemed to be the only male who was unaffected by Fleur's beauty, which was possibly due to the platonic relationship that developed between them over the course of the Triwizard Tournament. At the Burrow, Fleur treated Harry in a similar way as Mrs. Weasley, bringing him the breakfast and kissing him on both cheeks twice.

Fleur treated [[Harry Potter]] patronisingly at first, partly because she felt he was too young to participate in the [[Triwizard Tournament]], and also because she believed, like mostly everyone else, that he must have cheated his way in for personal glory. However, after he rescued her sister from the lake in the second task of the tournament, her attitude towards and treatment of him became considerably warmer and she came to respect him very much.<ref name="GF" />

The [[Weasley family|Weasleys]]' reaction to Fleur, with the exception of Ron, was initially lukewarm.<ref name="OP" /> They became more annoyed with Fleur when she and Bill became engaged, but tolerated her presence for his sake. Ron always had a soft side for Fleur, he always stuck up for her. Once he asked her to go to the [[Yule Ball]] but ran away before she had a chance to answer him. However, she became his sister-in-law in [[1997]] and they started having a friendly relationship. While Ron, Harry and Hermione stayed at her house, Fleur cared about them in a mother-like way. They also fought in the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] and survived the war.
+
While she stayed at the Burrow, Harry seemed to be the only male who was unaffected by Fleur's beauty, which was possibly due to the platonic relationship that developed between them over the course of the tournament. At the Burrow, Fleur treated Harry in a similar way as Mrs Weasley, bringing him a breakfast tray and kissing him on both cheeks twice. Like [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] and his father, [[Arthur Weasley]], Harry appeared to like Fleur, much to the dismay of Molly, Hermione and Ginny.

[[Hermione Granger]] met Fleur during the [[Triwizard Tournament]], and almost immediately grew to dislike her, as the beautiful French witch had a tendency to complain frequently and loudly about most aspects of [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], comparing it unfavourably with her own [[Beauxbatons Academy of Magic|school]]. When Hermione met Fleur again at [[The Burrow]], she found the latter to be arrogant and self-obsessed, an opinion shared by [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] and [[Molly Weasley]]. The fact that [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] had a very obvious crush on Fleur also didn't do much to improve her standing in Hermione's eyes.

However, Hermione saw Fleur in a much different light after [[William Weasley|Bill]] was attacked by [[Fenrir Greyback]], and Fleur made it clear that Bill's now heavily scarred appearance didn't change her feelings for him in the slightest. Fleur later risked her life along with Hermione to act as one of Harry's [[Battle of the Seven Potters|decoys]] in 1997, and after Hermione was tortured by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] at the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor|Malfoy Manor]], Fleur tended to her injuries, as well as those sustained by the others who had been detained there, and generally fussed over all of them in a motherly fashion. The two finally fought alongside one another during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], and became sisters-in-law through Fleur's marriage to Bill, and Hermione's marriage to Ron.

Harry Potter and Fleur at Shell Cottage[src]

Fleur Isabelle Weasley (née Delacour) (c. 1977) was a French, quarter-Veela witch daughter of Monsieur and Apolline Delacour and elder sister of Gabrielle. Fleur began attending the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic in 1988. During the 1994 to 1995 school year, she was Beauxbatons' champion in the Triwizard Tournament. Fleur competed bravely (though failing to complete the second task), but the Tournament ended in tragedy with the murder of Cedric Diggory and the return of Lord Voldemort. In the following summer, Fleur took a part-time job at Gringotts Wizarding Bank to improve her English, and began dating her co-worker Bill Weasley. The pair soon became engaged and Fleur stayed at the Burrow in the summer of 1996 to get to know Bill's family.

Fleur arrived in the aftermath of the Battle of the Astronomy Tower in 1997; during which her fiancé was badly injured by the werewolf Fenrir Greyback. The pair married in August of that year; the wedding was disrupted by Death Eaters following the fall of the Ministry of Magic. Fleur and Bill set up their own home at Shell Cottage, and later assisted Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger with Dumbledore's quest following their escape from Malfoy Manor, mainly offering them room and board. Fleur fought alongside her husband in the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998.

After the Second Wizarding War, she and Bill had three children; Victoire, Dominique, and Louis Weasley. She was awarded medals of bravery by both the French and British Ministries of Magic for her participation in the Battle of Hogwarts[7].

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Fleur was quarter-veela and grew up in France, with her parents Monsieur Delacour and her half-veela mother Apolline Delacour. She had a younger sister, Gabrielle and began attending the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic at some point in her childhood. It can be assumed that some time before the start of her schooling she purchased her wand which has a core of veela hair, from her maternal grandmother.

Beauxbatons Academy of MagicEdit

Triwizard championEdit

"We 'ave all be 'oping to be chosen for weeks and weeks! Ze honour for our schools! A thousand Galleons prize money — zis is a chance many would die for!"
—Fleur Delacour[src]
Fleur intro

Introducing Fleur in 1994

In 1994, along with Beauxbatons' Headmistress Madame Olympe Maxime, and a dozen other Beauxbatons students, she travelled to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to enter the Triwizard Tournament, arriving in a huge, blue chariot pulled by roughly a dozen flying horses on October 30 at around 6:00 pm. She laughed derisively during Albus Dumbledore's speech during the Welcoming Feast. Part way through the feast, she walked over to the Gryffindor table to ask Ron Weasley for the bouillabaisse in front of him. On her way back, she caught the eyes of most of the other boys in the hall.[3]

Fleur placed her name in the Goblet of Fire, and during the Halloween Feast, was selected to be Beauxbatons's student representative. While waiting for further instructions in a small room off the Great Hall, she learned that the Goblet of Fire had selected a fourth Champion — Harry Potter. When Ludo Bagman told her what happened, she first thought he was joking, then was surprised and outraged that they were to let a "little boy" compete in the Tournament.[3] Prior to the First Task, Fleur took part in the Wand Weighing ceremony presided over by Garrick Ollivander. After being handed the wand, it produced pink and gold sparks and was confirmed, by Fleur, to contain a Veela hair as a core; a gift from her grandmother. Ollivander described her wand as "inflexible", and in great working condition when it produced a bouquet of flowers without problem. Fleur's entrance into the Tournament was overshadowed in the Daily Prophet due to Harry Potter's participation; she was only mentioned in the last line of Rita's article, with her name misspelled.[3]

The First TaskEdit

"You were the best, you know, no competition... that Fleur girl tried this sort of charm, I think she was trying to put it into a trance; well, that kind of worked, too, it went all sleepy and this great jet of flame shot out, and her skirt caught fire; she put it out with a bit of water out of her wand."
Ron Weasley on Fleur's performance in the First Task[src]
DragonEnclosurePottermore

dragons the first task, to test the champion's daring and nerve

Forewarned by Madame Maxime that the First Task would involve dragons, Fleur was resigned to facing that fact on November 24th. She drew the Common Welsh Green and the second turn. Facing her dragon after Cedric Diggory, she managed to lure it into a sleeping trance. However, the dragon snored and released a jet of flame that set her skirt on fire.

Fleur's Yule Ball Dress Robes

In the run-up to the Yule Ball, Fleur attempted to attract Cedric as a date, but he had already asked Cho Chang. Caught unaware by her Veela heritage, Ron Weasley spontaneously asked her to the ball, to which her initial reaction was seeming disdain. Suddenly aware of what he had done, he ran away before she could answer him. Finally, Fleur selected Ravenclaw Quidditch captain Roger Davies as her partner, who was completely helpless to her charms and to whom she spent some of the night complaining about the flaws of Hogwarts and the British Wizarding education system. Fleur and Roger, along with the other Champions and their partners, opened the dancing at the Yule Ball. As the night wore on, Fleur and Roger left for the gardens, sneaking into the rose bushes for a romantic engagement.[3]

Fleur's use of the Bubble-Head Charm

On the 24th of February, Fleur participated in the Second Task. Having figured out the clue in the Golden egg and understanding the need to breathe underwater for an hour, she chose to use the Bubble-Head Charm. During the Task, she was attacked by Grindylows and was forced to retreat. She was overjoyed when Harry, determined to rescue all the hostages, not just his own, returned to the surface with both Ron and her sister, Gabrielle. She thanked him and Ron profusely by giving them a kiss on each cheek, and after the incident became friendly toward the two. Upon learning that she had been awarded twenty-five points, remarked that she deserved zero, as she had failed to retrieve her "hostage". After the first two tasks, Fleur was in last place going into the Third Task.[3]

The Third TaskEdit

Fleur joined the other Champions in viewing the beginnings of the maze for the Third Task on the site of the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch. On the morning of the Third Task, Fleur was visited by her mother and Gabrielle who had been invited to watch the final part of the Triwizard Tournament. She also laid eyes on Bill Weasley for the first time, and was immediately attracted to him.[3]

The third task and final task (the maze)

Being in last place, Fleur was to be last to enter the maze behind Harry, Cedric Diggory and Viktor Krum. However, due to the machinations of Barty Crouch Jr.—disguised, via Polyjuice Potion, as Alastor Moody— Fleur did not last long. Crouch wanted Harry to reach the Triwizard Cup so that he could be transported to meet with Lord Voldemort. To achieve this, he used Moody's magical eye to find Fleur in the maze and stun her.[3] After the Triwizard Tournament and the murder of Cedric Diggory, Fleur attended the Leaving Feast at Hogwarts that served as a memorial to him. She left Hogwarts the day after, saying goodbye to Harry and telling him that she hoped they would meet again since she was hoping to return to England to work and improve her English.[3]

Working for GringottsEdit

"Bill is very busy at ze moment, working very 'ard, and I only work part-time at Gringotts for my Eenglish, so he brought me 'ere for a few days to get to know 'is family properly. I was so pleased to 'ear you would be coming - zere isn't much to do 'ere, unless you like cooking and chickens!"
—Fleur Delacour[src]

Helping out at The Burrow

During the summer of 1995, Fleur secured a part-time job at Gringotts. She was reunited with Bill Weasley, who had returned from Egypt and taken a desk job to help the Order of the Phoenix, and the two began dating.[6] Fleur and Bill dated for a year, falling in love, until ultimately Bill proposed to her. Fleur accepted, and, in the summer of 1996, Bill brought Fleur to the Burrow so she could get to know his family. She was delighted to know that Harry was going to stay with the Weasleys' for the remainder of the summer.

However, her blunt nature and critical attitude brought her into conflict with the female members of the Weasley family. Mrs Weasley didn't care for her at all, believing that she was not the right choice for her son. Ginny disliked her for her general attitude towards everything; she gave Fleur the nickname "Phlegm," although she never openly used it in front of her. Still, Fleur was tolerated for Bill's sake. It may have been that her Veela ancestry interfered with the gender dynamics, as the male family members seemed to take no issue with her. She spent Christmas that year at the Burrow as well, further annoying Mrs Weasley by stating her dislike of Celestina Warbeck, Mrs Weasley's favourite singer.[8]

Second Wizarding WarEdit

Battle of the Astronomy TowerEdit

In June 1997, during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, Bill was brutally savaged by the werewolf Fenrir Greyback. Because Greyback was not transformed, Bill did not become a werewolf, but rather developed some wolf-like qualities. Fleur rushed to Hogwarts with Bill's parents, and was shaken by Bill's scarred face. She railed at Mrs Weasley's assumption that she would not now want to marry Bill since he was no longer attractive. Taking offence, she criticised both the idea that she would not wish to marry him out of vanity, and that his feelings may have changed towards her because of possible werewolf contamination.

Fleur in fact, took pride in his wounds as living proof of his bravery, and stated she didn't care about how he looked as she was "beautiful enough for both of them."  Mrs Weasley, finally seeing that Fleur and Bill were truly in love, reconciled with her future daughter-in-law over Bill's hospital bed, and offered Fleur the use of her Aunt Muriel's goblin-made tiara for her wedding day. In the days following, Fleur took care of Bill as he recovered from his injuries, and attended the funeral of Albus Dumbledore.[8]

Battle of the Seven PottersEdit

"Bah, Bill, don't look at me — I'm ‘ideous."

The seven potters before the battle

Three days before Harry's seventeenth birthday in 1997, Fleur was part of the effort to get Harry safely to the Burrow and participated in the battle that ensued. She took the role of a fake Harry, using Polyjuice Potion to take on his appearance. Paired with Bill, the two were to fly north on a Thestral in an effort to fool any persuing Death Eaters.

After departing, Fleur witnessed the death of Alastor Moody as the Death Eaters descended on them in an effort to capture Harry. Fleur and Bill were chased by half a dozen Death Eaters, but managed to escape and return to the Burrow and relay the news. Fleur was upset over Moody's death, and voiced the opinion that someone may have betrayed them, as the Death Eaters seemed to know the plan to escort Harry to safety.[4]

Marriage Edit

Bill and Fleur in their wedding attire

On August 1, 1997, Fleur and Bill were married at the Burrow. The ceremony and reception took place in a marquee tent which "revealed rows and rows of fragile golden chairs set on either side of a long purple carpet."

White and gold flowers and golden balloons were some of the many unique elements added to the occasion. Ginny and Gabrielle were both bridesmaids. Fleur wore a simple white dress and Muriel's tiara, and looked so beautiful that Bill "did not look as though he had ever met Fenir Greyback."[4] The celebration was overshadowed, though, by the news that the Ministry of Magic had fallen to Lord Voldemort, and that Rufus Scrimgeour was dead. Death Eaters, with the full power of the Ministry behind them, broke the protective spells surrounding the Burrow and Apparated into the reception. Fleur was questioned by them, along with the rest of the Weasley family, but was later free to go.

Bill and Fleur's home, Shell Cottage

Fleur and Bill set up their own home, Shell Cottage, and spent their first Christmas there together, along with Bill's younger brother Ron, who had secretly come to stay with them after abandoning Harry and Hermione Granger on their Horcrux quest.

Following Harry, Ron and Hermione's escape from Malfoy Manor, Fleur helped to look after them and their fellow escapees Dean Thomas, Luna Lovegood, Garrick Ollivander and Griphook. She helped Hermione recover from the torture she suffered at the hands of Bellatrix Lestrange, and healed Griphook's legs with Skele-Gro. Over the course of the next few weeks, she looked after her unexpected guests, although she disliked Griphook. When Ollivander was well enough to be transferred to Aunt Muriel's, she asked him to take Muriel's tiara back with him as she never had a chance to return it after the wedding. Fleur expressed concern over Harry's plans to leave Shell Cottage on his quest, telling him it was better for him to stay where it was safe.[4]

Battle of HogwartsEdit

Orderbattle

Fleur and the Order before the Battle of Hogwarts

Alongside her husband and his family, Fleur answered Neville Longbottom's call to arms to fight in the Battle of Hogwarts against Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters. During the tense reunion between Percy Weasley and his family, she led Harry Potter and Remus Lupin in a side conversation regarding Lupin's son, Teddy, so they would not intrude. Fleur and Bill survived the battle.[4]

Later lifeEdit

Following the war, Fleur and Bill had three children; Victoire,[9] Dominique and Louis Weasley.[5] She was granted medals of honour from the French and British Ministries of Magic for her actions in the war[7].

Physical appearanceEdit

"A young women was standing in the doorway, a women of such breath taking beauty that the room seemed to have become strangely airless. She was tall and willowy with long blonde hair and appeared to emanate a faint, silvery glow."
Harry Potter describes Fleur appearance [src]
Clemence Poesy as Fleur DelaCour (HP4 promo)

Fleur Delacour.

Due to her part-Veela heritage, Fleur was a breathtakingly beautiful witch, and caught a lot of attention from males and a lot of jealousy from other females. She was tall and willowy, with an air of grace that made her seem like she was gliding when she was walking and her very presence seemed to emanate a faint, silvery glow. She had long beautiful silvery blonde hair, large, deep blue eyes, fair skin, a petite frame and very white, even teeth.[3] Her beauty "usually dimmed everyone else by comparison," but on her wedding day, "it beautified everybody it fell upon."[4]

Ron Weasley (who would later become her brother-in-law) always stumbled or tried to get Fleur to kiss him on the cheek, which Ginny Weasley and Hermione Granger were disgusted by and called "pathetic."

Personality and traitsEdit

"She's as much a fairy princess as I am."
Barty Crouch Jr. (disguised as Alastor Moody) about Fleur[src]

Fleur was portrayed as quite arrogant and conceited in her daily life. Because of her beauty, she saw herself as a cut above most others. For instance, when Ron Weasley asked her to go to the Yule Ball with him, she "looked at him as though he were a sea slug." She frequently treating people around her with condescension and often outright rudeness, such as making insulting comments about the state of Hogwarts Christmas decorations and Mrs. Weasley's home. [3]

Her only redeeming feature seemed to be her genuine concern for her sister, Gabrielle, as seen when she fought to return to the water to save her despite having previously suffered an attack by Grindylows in the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament. Fleur had a very blunt nature, expressing herself in no terms. She always spoke her mind and often came off as haughty and snobbish. At times she could be a bit self-absorbed but if someone she cared about was in danger she would always try to help them.

Vestit

In 1997, after the Battle of the Astronomy Tower — when her fiancé William Weasley was in the hospital wing — Fleur insisted on treating his wounds herself, taking the ointment from Molly Weasley.

Yet in spite of her high opinion of herself, Fleur was warm and caring; she fretted over the safety of those she loved.[3] She was surprisingly brave and fiercely loyal. [4] Having never forgotten that Harry once saved her sister's life, she volunteered to escort Harry from 4 Privet Drive in the summer of 1997, risking both her life and her fiance's. She also allowed him to stay at her home, and even honoured his request that the goblin, Griphook, be allowed to stay. While she played host to Harry, Hermione, Ron and the others at her home, Harry noticed she had become a lot more like her mother-in-law, Molly Weasley, in traits such as worrying and fussing in a motherly fashion over him and his friends.[4]

Magical abilities and skillsEdit

Fleur was a powerful and talented witch, as was evidenced by her selection as the Beauxbatons Champion by the Goblet of Fire out of all the Beauxbatons students who entered their names. However, circumstances in the Tournament conspired against her, and she was unable to fully showcase her talents.[3]

  • Veela attraction:: As a quarter-Veela, Fleur has the ability to attract men with her beauty. Although hers would not be as strong as that of a full Veela, she can make it still ravishing enough to overwhelm unsuspecting individuals if she wants to. She presumably cannot transform into a monstrous bird form like a full Veela.
  • Charms: Fleur seemed to be good with charms. During the First Task she used both a sleeping enchantment and the Aguamenti Charm and in the Second Task she used a Bubble-Head Charm, all to good effect.
  • Nonverbal magic: Fleur is capable of performing magic non-verbally.
  • Duelling: Fleur was also a skilled duellist as proven during the Triwizard Tournament and her survival of the Battle of the Seven Potters and the Battle of Hogwarts.
  • Household Spells: By the time Harry, Ron and Hermione stayed at her and Bill's house, Fleur seems to have developed a talent for household spells, as she was making dinner with magic, and also cleaning with it, like her mother in law does.

PossessionsEdit

Fleur-delacours-wand-profile

Fleur's wand

  • Wand: The wand of Fleur Delacour is 9½" rosewood, with a Veela hair core. The hair was donated by Fleur's grandmother. When the wand was weighed by Mr Ollivander during the Triwizard Tournament, in which Fleur was Beauxbatons' champion, he described it as "inflexible".[10]
  • Dress Robes: These dress robes were worn by Fleur to the Yule Ball in 1994 as part of the Triwizard Tournament at Hogwarts,
  • Wedding dress: This wedding dress was worn by Fleur at her wedding to Bill Weasley on 1 August, 1997. The dress is described as a rather lavish black and white ornate dress.
  • Medals of bravery: Fleur's medals of bravery were awarded to her some point after 2 May, 1998 by the British and French Ministries of Magic, respectively, for her participation in the Battle of Hogwarts.

RelationshipsEdit

FamilyEdit

ParentsEdit

Fleur seemed to have a pleasant relationship with her parents when they arrived at The Burrow for her wedding with Bill; her half-Veela mother, Apolline, proved to be very helpful and had a knack for household spells, and her father was a jovial man who seemed to find everything at the Burrow charming. After the Second Wizarding War, they had three grandchildren through Fleur.

Gabrielle DelacourEdit

Fleur had a very close relationship with her sister, Gabrielle. During the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament, Gabrielle was taken into the Lake as the thing Fleur would sorely miss. After Harry Potter appeared to have saved Gabrielle's life by risking a high score to rescue her from the lake, Fleur warmed to him quite a bit, and took to kissing his cheeks when she saw him. At her wedding, Fleur made Gabrielle one of her bridesmaids, along with Ginny Weasley (Much to Ginny's dislike).

Bill WeasleyEdit

"You thought that I would not weesh to marry him? Or per'aps you hoped? What do I care how he looks? I am good-looking enough for both of us, I theenk! All these scars show is zat my husband is brave!"

Bill-Weasley-harry-potter-and-the-deathly-hallows-movies-17182060-1919-2560

Bill Weasley, her husband and father of her children

Fleur first encountered Bill Weasley just prior to the Third Task of the Triwizard Tournament when he accompanied his mother to Hogwarts to support Harry Potter. She was attracted to him from the start, eyeing him from across the room while in the company of her parents.[3] In the summer of 1995, Fleur took a part-time job with Gringotts to improve her English. Bill had taken a desk job at the bank so that he could assist the Order of the Phoenix, and the two began dating.[6]

They had been dating for a year when Bill asked Fleur to marry him, and she accepted. Although his family — especially his mother and sister — were unimpressed by her, they accepted her when she showed how much she really loved Bill following his scarring at the hands of Fenrir Greyback in 1997.[8] Before the couple got married, Bill helped Fleur's English at his work at Gringotts Bank. They were married on August 1, 1997, the same day that the Ministry of Magic fell to Lord Voldemort. Although their wedding was disrupted by Death Eaters, Fleur and Bill were allowed to go free and set up home in Shell Cottage.[8] Following the end of the Second Wizarding War, they had three children; eldest to youngest, Victoire,[4]Dominique, and Louis.[5]

ChildrenEdit

After the events of the Second Wizarding War, Fleur bore three children; Victoire, who was named after the victory of the Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore's Army during the Battle of Hogwarts, because she was born on the anniversary of the battle; Dominique and Louis. In 2017, it was implied that Victoire was in a relationship with Teddy Lupin.

Harry PotterEdit

PromoHP7 Harry Potter

Harry Potter, her friend and future brother-in-law

Fleur treated Harry Potter patronisingly at first, partly because she felt he was too young to participate in the Triwizard Tournament, and also because she believed, like mostly everyone else, that he must have cheated his way in for personal glory. However, after he rescued her sister from the lake in the second task of the tournament, her attitude towards and treatment of him became considerably warmer and she came to respect him very much.[3]

While she stayed at the Burrow, Harry seemed to be the only male who was unaffected by Fleur's beauty, which was possibly due to the platonic relationship that developed between them over the course of the tournament. At the Burrow, Fleur treated Harry in a similar way as Mrs Weasley, bringing him a breakfast tray and kissing him on both cheeks twice. Like Ron Weasley and his father, Arthur Weasley, Harry appeared to like Fleur, much to the dismay of Molly, Hermione and Ginny.

Eventually, Fleur joined the Order of the Phoenix, and in 1997, she put herself in great danger during the Battle of the Seven Potters, acting as one of Harry's decoys. She was also very loyal to Harry. When her wedding was gate-crashed by Death Eaters, she did not tell them that Harry had been there. Harry was present for Fleur's marriage to Bill Weasley, and after Harry and several others came to her home at Shell Cottage, she tended to their wounds and generally took care of all of them. Having so many people at her home, especially the goblin Griphook, tested her patience, but she was still kind to Harry, of whom she still had a high opinion because of his efforts to save her sister.[4] Through his marriage to Ginny Weasley, Harry became Fleur's brother-in-law and uncle to her three children.

Weasley familyEdit

Mrs Weasley: "Yes, well, your father and I were made for each other, what was the point in waiting? Whereas Bill and Fleur... well... what have they really got in common? He's a hard working down-to-earth sort of person, whereas she's —"
Ginny Weasley: "A cow. But Bill's not that down-to-earth... he likes a bit of adventure, a bit of glamour... I expect that's why he's gone for Phlegm."
Molly and Ginny on Bill and Fleur
Weasleys

The Weasleys' her in laws

The Weasleys' reaction to Fleur, with the exceptions of Ron and Arthur, was initially lukewarm.[6] They became more annoyed with Fleur when she and Bill became engaged, but tolerated her presence for his sake.

Ron always had a soft side for Fleur, he always stuck up for her. Once he asked her to go to the Yule Ball but ran away before she had a chance to answer him. However, she became his sister-in-law in 1997 and they started having a friendly relationship. While Ron, Harry, and Hermione stayed at her house, Fleur cared about them in a mother-like way.

Molly and Ginny Weasley in particular did not like Fleur, considering her snooty. Molly was irked by Fleur's criticism of her household and her favourite singer, Celestina Warbeck, and Ginny called her "Phlegm", due to her throaty, French accent, and made fun of her behind her back. However, when Fleur did not break off their engagement following Bill's injuries, the Weasleys saw how deeply she loved Bill, and became more accepting of her.[8] Molly convinced her Aunt Muriel to lend Fleur her tiara for the wedding, and Ginny served as one of Fleur's bridesmaids.[4]

Hermione GrangerEdit

"I know, she's so full of herself."
Hermione Granger on Fleur[src]
293px-Hermionedhface

Hermione Granger, her future sister-in-law

Hermione Granger met Fleur during the Triwizard Tournament, and almost immediately grew to dislike her, as the beautiful French witch had a tendency to complain frequently and loudly about most aspects of Hogwarts, comparing it unfavourably with her own school. When Hermione met Fleur again at The Burrow, she found the latter to be arrogant and self-obsessed, an opinion shared by Ginny and Molly Weasley. The fact that Ron Weasley had a very obvious crush on Fleur also didn't do much to improve her standing in Hermione's eyes.

However, Hermione saw Fleur in a much different light after Bill was attacked by Fenrir Greyback, and Fleur made it clear that Bill's now heavily scarred appearance didn't change her feelings for him in the slightest. Fleur later risked her life along with Hermione to act as one of Harry's decoys in 1997, and after Hermione was tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange at the Malfoy Manor, Fleur tended to her injuries, as well as those sustained by the others who had been detained there, and generally fussed over all of them in a motherly fashion. The two finally fought alongside one another during the Battle of Hogwarts, and became sisters-in-law through Fleur's marriage to Bill, and Hermione's marriage to Ron.

Nieces and nephewsEdit

Fleur also had many nieces and nephews, through the Weasley family. Percy and Audrey's daughters, Molly and Lucy; George and Angelina Johnson's children, Fred and Roxanne; Ron and Hermione's children, Rose and Hugo; Ginny and Harry's children, James, Albus and Lily. It is likely that Fleur was close with all of them. It's unknown if she eventually had any nieces or nephews through her sister Gabrielle.

Olympe MaximeEdit

Olumpemaxime

Olympe Maxime, her headmistress

Olympe Maxime was the headmistress of Beauxbatons Academy of Magic during Fleur's time at the school. Madam Maxime was indignant at the inclusion of Harry Potter in the Triwizard Tournament, and supported Fleur's efforts to win completely; when Harry saw Maxime when Hagrid showed him the First Task's dragons, he had no doubts that Maxime would have told Fleur all about them.

Viktor KrumEdit

As Viktor Krum and Fleur were both the Triwizard champions for their schools, Durmstrang Institute and Beauxbatons respectively, they viewed each other as competition during the Triwizard Tournament. They maintained their friendship and she invited him to her wedding to William Weasley in 1997.

Order of the Phoenix membersEdit

Ootp

The original Order of the Phoenix

Fleur became a member of the Order of the Phoenix during the Second Wizarding War. Her relationship with most fellow members is unknown; it is possible that she and the rest of the order had a good relationship.

She was at least somewhat friendly with Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks, though she seemed to think little of Tonks's efforts in terms of her appearance. She fought alongside both in the Battle of the Seven Potters, she was also thrilled to learned Tonks had given birth to a baby boy. By 2017, Tonks and Remus's son, Teddy, was seen kissing Bill and Fleur's daughter, Victoire.

Fleur was also clearly fond of Alastor Moody, as she was visibly distraught by his death in 1997, and was seen crying.

Other friendshipsEdit

Luna-Lovegood-Deathly-Hallows

Luna Lovegood, a friend

Fleur cared for a number of people at Shell Cottage following the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor: she became friendly with Luna Lovegood, Dean Thomas and Garrick Ollivander, seeming especially fond of the last. Fleur asked the wandmaker to return the tiara she had worn for her wedding to Bill's Aunt Muriel.

Fleur disliked the goblin Griphook, who treated her as if she was a lowly maid; though it was clear to Harry that Griphook's behaviour was frustrating Fleur, she mostly kept her feelings to herself, as Griphook was still in poor health.

MediaEdit
