BiographyEdit

Early life Edit

In 2014, James, along with his family, attended the finale of the Quidditch World Cup in the Patagonian Desert. A few days before the match, his father introduced him and his younger brother Albus to the Bulgarian National Quidditch team Seeker, and an old associate of his father, Viktor Krum.

James, being the oldest child, had already been attending Hogwarts, but it is not specified which year he was entering. Contemporaries at school include his cousins Victoire and Rose, as well as Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius, though they are in different years.

When his family gathered to see him and his brother off at Platform Nine and Three-QuartersKing's Cross Station on 1 September, 2017, James interrupted his cousin Victoire snogging Teddy Lupin, and then ran off to tell his family and other relatives. He was disappointed when they did not react strongly.[6] At some point, James would also steal the Marauder's Map from his father's desk drawer.[7]

Physical appearanceEdit

James like his younger brother, Albus, takes after their paternal family in looks. As he did not have the same almond-shaped green eyes as his father and paternal grandmother, he may have inherited his mother's bright brown eyes. James did, however, inherit his father's untidy jet black hair. He has mostly his father's and grandfather's facial features.

Personality and traitsEdit

"You interrupted them? You are so like Ron —"
—Ginny to her son.[src]

He also seems to have inherited his sense of humor and love for mischief from his two uncles, Fred and George Weasley, and having a fondness for teasing his siblings and making mischief.

He is also very much like his two namesakes, James Potter I and Sirius Black, in his mischievous and trouble-making nature.

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.

James has many cousin, like Rose who is close in age with his brother and in the same year at Hogwarts and Hugo who is the same age as his sister, Lily.

AppearancesEdit

Wiki
The Harry Potter Wiki has 21 images related to James Potter II.

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. James's age is not revealed in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows, but J. K. Rowling stated in an interview that his mother, Ginevra Weasley, spent a "few years" playing for the Holyhead Harpies, and then "retired to have her family". As Ginny graduated from Hogwarts in June 1999, and a "few years" implies at least three years, the earliest she could have retired to have James is June 2002, assuming she joined the team immediately after graduation. Depending on the length of the gestational period, the earliest James could have been born is late 2002 or early 2003. He is at least a year older than his younger brother Albus, who was born between late 2005 and mid-2006.
