History: Ronald is the sixth son of the Weasley family, and the best friend of Harry Potter. Being the youngest of the boys in his family has affected his outlook on life: "I'm the sixth in our family to go to Hogwarts. You could say I've got a lot to live up to. Bill and Charlie have already left - Bill was head boy and Charlie was captain of Quidditch. Now Percy's a prefect. Fred and George mess around a lot, but they still get really good marks and everyone thinks they're really funny. Everyone expects me to do as well as the others, but if I do, it's no big deal, because they did it first. You never get anything new, either, with five brothers. I've got Bill's old robes, Charlie's old wand, and Percy's old rat." Ron is an arachnophobe.

Comments: Created by J.K. Rowling.
