Ted Lupin was born in April, [[1998]] to [[Remus Lupin]] and [[Nymphadora Tonks|Nymphadora Lupin née Tonks]]. He was named in honour of his maternal grandfather [[Edward Tonks]]. On [[May 2]], 1998, his mother and father both fought in the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], leaving him with his maternal grandmother [[Andromeda Tonks]]<ref name="a"/>. Unfortunately, both Teddy's parents died in the battle, leaving him an orphan and was therefore raised by his grandmother<ref name="a">[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2007/0730-bloomsbury-chat.html 2007 Bloomsbury Chat with J. K. Rowling]</ref> and usually spent much of his time with the Potter and Weasley families.
   
On [[1 September]], [[2017]], Teddy came to [[Platform Nine and Three-Quarters]] to see off [[Victoire Weasley]], with whom he was in a romantic relationship, in which case, they were distantly related. It was remarked that it would be nice if he was an official member of the [[Potter family|Potter]]/[[Weasley family|Weasley]] family. Of the three [[Potter family|Potter]] children, he seemed to be the closest with the youngest, [[Lily Potter|Lily]]. She didn't laugh at his relationship with [[Victoire Weasley]], unlike her brother [[James Potter II|James]]<ref name=DH />. Lily very much hoped Victoire and Teddy would get married so that he would become a real part of their family.

"Sorry I will never know him... but he will know why I died and I hope he will understand I was trying to make a world in which he could live a happier life."
—The spirit of Remus Lupin to Harry Potter concerning his son.[src]

Edward Remus "Teddy" Lupin[4] (b. April, 1998) was the son and only child of the late Remus Lupin and his deceased wife, Nymphadora Tonks. He was a Metamorphmagus like his mother. He was named after Nymphadora's father, Edward Tonks, who was killed shortly before his birth, and his father Remus who was killed during the Battle of Hogwarts. Harry Potter was named as his godfather.[5]

BiographyEdit

Ted Lupin was born in April, 1998 to Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Lupin née Tonks. He was named in honour of his maternal grandfather Edward Tonks. On May 2, 1998, his mother and father both fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, leaving him with his maternal grandmother Andromeda Tonks[6]. Unfortunately, both Teddy's parents died in the battle, leaving him an orphan and was therefore raised by his grandmother[6] and usually spent much of his time with the Potter and Weasley families.

Since he was born in April 1998, Ted most likely began his education in the magical arts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on 1 September, 2009.

On 1 September, 2017, Teddy came to Platform Nine and Three-Quarters to see off Victoire Weasley, with whom he was in a romantic relationship, in which case, they were distantly related through marriage. It was remarked that it would be nice if he was an official member of the Potter/Weasley family. Of the three Potter children, he seemed to be the closest with the youngest, Lily. She didn't laugh at his relationship with Victoire Weasley, unlike her brother James[5]. Lily very much hoped Victoire and Teddy would get married so that he would become a real part of their family.

Teddy Lupin did not become a werewolf like his father. He was, however, a Metamorphmagus, like his mother.[7]

FamilyEdit

01 Lupin Nymphadora Dh
Teddy's father, Remus Lupin, and mother, Nymphadora Tonks.
You-Know-WhoAdded by You-Know-Who

Teddy's mother and father were killed by Death Eaters Bellatrix Lestrange and Antonin Dolohov, respectively, during the Battle of Hogwarts, leaving their son an orphan. Teddy was thus brought up by his maternal grandmother, Andromeda Tonks, and saw a lot of the Potter and Weasley families,[8] visiting at least four times a week for dinner.

On his mother's side, Teddy is also related to the Black and Malfoy families; Narcissa Malfoy is his great-aunt, Lucius Malfoy is his great-uncle, making Draco Malfoy his first cousin, once removed and Scorpius Malfoy his second cousin. His mother's murderer, the late Bellatrix Lestrange, was also his great-aunt. Bellatrix's husband, Rodolphus Lestrange is also his great-uncle. His grandmother and two great-aunts's cousins, Sirius Black and Regulus Black are his first cousins twice removed. 

Harry Potter, of whom Remus and Nymphadora deeply trusted and always liked, was asked by the couple to become Teddy's godfather, to which Harry accepted.

EtymologyEdit

  •  "Edward" is derived from the Old English words ead, meaning "blessed", and weard, meaning "guard", and has been the name of many members of the English nobility and royalty. [9]
  • The name "Remus" comes from the brothers Romulus and Remus, the legendary brothers who fought in their adulthood, and of whom Romulus became the founder of Rome, who were raised by wolves. Interestingly, Romulus was the codename used by Ted's father on Potterwatch.
  • "Lupin" derives from the Latin lupus meaning "wolf".

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Luke Newberry was cast as Ted Lupin in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, but he was cut from the ending of the film and he is only mentioned by Remus to Harry.[10] Teddy also does not appear in any of the deleted scenes on the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 DVD and Blu-ray.
  • Teddy's origins are supposed to reflect Harry's, who lost both parents to Voldemort as well. However, unlike Harry, Teddy grows up in a new and safe world, surrounded by loving family and friends.[11]
  • Teddy's House is unknown, but he has close relatives in at least three Houses: his father was a Gryffindor, his mother was a Hufflepuff, and his grandmother who raised him was a Slytherin.

Third, they were both in infancy when their parents died; Harry was one, Teddy wasn't even a month old. Fourth, both their fathers were Marauders.

AppearancesEdit

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. Following Teddy's birth, Remus Lupin stated to the occupants of Shell Cottage that Teddy had changed his hair colour from black to ginger in the hour since he had been born. This suggests that Teddy's natural hair colour could in fact be black like that of his great aunt Bellatrix and first cousin twice removed, Sirius Black.
  2. His mother, Nymphadora, has "Dark twinkling eyes" and his father has "green" eyes, so it is possible that Teddy had one of these eye colours.
  3. None of his know parents or grandparents have dark skin, meaning that for at least two generations, Teddy had pale skinned ancestors who would have shown at least some signs of dark skinned ancestry if they had any.
