"You haven't got a letter on yours. I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid — we know we're called Gred and Forge."
George Weasley to Harry on their Christmas Weasley jumpers[src]

Fred Weasley and George Weasley were identical and mischievous twin wizards born on 1 April, 1978 to Arthur Weasley and Molly Weasley (née Prewett). Brilliant pranksters, they co-founded and ran the joke shop Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes and were members of both Dumbledore's Army and the Order of the Phoenix.

History Edit

Fred: "He never managed to get all the words out, due to the fact that we forced him head-first into that Vanishing Cabinet on the first floor."
Hermione: "But you’ll get into terrible trouble!"
Fred: "Not until Montague reappears, and that could take weeks, I dunno where we sent him."
— Fred Weasley on him and his twin George pushing Montague into the Vanishing Cabinet in 1996[src]

The twins departed from Hogwarts sometime after the Easter Holidays in 1996 in a final act of rebellion against Dolores Umbridge and the Inquisitorial Squad. After leaving school, the twins went on to open their joke shop, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, which was made possible because Harry Potter had given them his Triwizard earnings. All the products in the shop were mainly of their creation.

The twins were famous for their pranking and mischief at the school. They were also very brotherly-like figures to Harry Potter, giving him the Marauder's Map and playfully teasing him.  They were skilled in magic and created an entire line of magical joke items known as "Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes". According to their brother Ron, they had good grades, but they only received six O.W.L.s combined. Both of them played as Beaters on the Gryffindor Quidditch team. George Weasley was devastated by the tragic loss of Fred Weasley in the Battle of Hogwarts.

  • George Weasley — Brother of Bill, Charlie, Percy, Ron, and Ginny, and son of Molly and Arthur Weasley. Twin brother of Fred Weasley. Lost an ear in the Battle of Seven Potters. George survived the Second Wizarding War and went on to marry Angelina Johnson and have two children, Roxanne and Fred (named after his late brother).
