Special Sub-Topic: Marauder's Map Authors
|From the day when his parents were killed by Voldemort, in what order does Harry see the authors of the Marauder's Map, whether or not they are in their animagus form?|
Prongs, Padfoot, Wormtail, Moony. Prongs is James, Harry's dad, and of course Harry saw him first since Harry was living with his parents that day. Padfoot (Sirius) came next. Right after Lord Voldemort killed Harry parents, Hagrid was sent to get Harry. Hagrid had Harry, and was prepared to leave somehow, but Sirius stopped them and gave Hagrid his motorbike. Since "the little tyke fell asleep over Bristol", we have to assume that Harry was awake. Since Harry was awake, he saw Sirius. Third, he saw Wormtail (aka Scabbers) in his first year on the Hogwarts Express when Ron had him. Fourth was Moony, Professor Lupin, who was Harry's teacher in the third year.
|Who was the Potters' Secret Keeper?|
Wormtail. Everyone thought that Padfoot (Black) was the Potter's Secret-Keeper, but he convinced the Potters at the last minute to switch to Wormtail (Pettigrew).
|Which of the four is NOT an animagus?|
Moony. Moony is a werewolf. The other three became animagi so that they could all stay together on nights with a full moon.
|Why is it beneficial that Peter Pettigrew's animagus is a rat?|
so he can touch the knot on the Whomping Willow. Peter (aka Wormtail) becomes a rat as an animagus; therefore, he is small enough to get to the knot on the Whomping Willow so it would freeze, allowing his friends to go through safely when Moony needs to go into the Shrieking Shack.
|Which author's name appears first on the Marauder's Map?|
Moony. Moony is the first name to appear on the Marauder's Map whenever somebody activates it.
|Which author is also the students' Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher in Harry's third year at Hogwarts?|
Moony. Moony is Professor Remus Lupin. Professor Lupin was asked by Dumbledore to be the Defense Against the Dark Arts Teacher in Harry's third year.
|Which of the authors is related to Bellatrix Lestrange?|
Padfoot. Padfoot is Sirius Black, who is Bellatrix's cousin. It's weird how most pure-blood wizarding families all are related somehow.
|How old is Percy when he first meets Wormtail?|
5 & five. Remember that "Scabbers" has been in the family for exactly twelve years as of Book 3. Since Percy is 17 at the time (he's in his seventh year), he had to be five when the rat first came into the Weasley family.
|Where does Padfoot hide out when he wants to meet Harry to discuss the Triwizard Tournament?|
Hogsmeade. Dumbledore suggested a cave in Hogsmeade so Sirius could be close to the school without attracting too much attention.
|On the map, which author calls Professor Snape "an ugly git?"|
Mr. Prongs. Moony tells Professor Snape to mind his own business, Wormtail suggests he wash his hair, and Padfoot tells him that it's a surprise that he became a professor.
