'''Mr Lupin''' was the father of [[Remus Lupin]]. At some point during the [[1960s]] or early [[1970s]], he offended the [[werewolf]] [[Fenrir Greyback]], which lead Greyback to bite and infect his young son in revenge, which is how Remus Lupin became a werewolf. <ref>''Half-Blood Prince'', Chapter 16</ref>
Along with his [[Remus Lupin's mother|wife]], Mr Lupin tried all manner of treatments for his son's lycanthropy, but in those days, before [[Damocles]]'s invention of the [[Wolfsbane Potion]], there were no cures that actually worked.<ref name="poa18">''Prisoner of Azkaban'', Chapter 18</ref> He and his wife worried that their son would not be able to attend [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]], due to his condition, but [[Albus Dumbledore]] made a special provision for the Lupin.<ref name="poa18" />
As Remus Lupin is known to have been a [[half-blood]],<ref>"[ World Book Day Chat, 2004]" at ''Accio Quote!''</ref> it stands to reason that at least one of his parents was magical. The fact that Mr Lupin angered a werewolf indicates that he had contact with the wizarding world — implying that he may have been a [[Wizards|wizard]]. However, it ''is'' possible that Remus Lupin's mother was not a muggle, but rather a witch of muggle parentage.
There are hints that Mr Lupin is deceased, for example, the fact that it was [[James Potter I|James]] who financially helped Remus after Hogwarts, not his parents. This could also be explained by he and his wife having some sort of financial problem, even though both of these statements are mere speculations.
==Behind the scenes==
*His name might have been John because his son Remus' middle name is John and Rowling has a habit of naming her characters after a relative of theirs, for example [[William Weasley|William Arthur Weasley]] was given the middle name "Arthur" after his father, [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginevra Molly Potter (née Weasley)]] was given the middle name "Molly" after her mother, [[Ted Lupin|Ted Remus Lupin]] was given his first name "Ted" after his maternal grandfather and his middle name "Remus" after his own father, [[Ronald Weasley|Ronald Bilius Weasley]] was given the middle name "Bilius" after his uncle. Also [[Harry Potter|Harry James Potter]] has his father's name as his middle name and [[Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore]] has his father's and possible several grandfathers forenames in his middle names.
