This is where you can find basic information about Remus' childhood (and adulthood) best friends. Note: If you have not read the 3rd and 5th books in the Harry Potter series, this section contains spoilers.
Remus John Lupin
None, is a werewolf
Pale and peaky, light brown hair, hoarse voice
Quiet type, intelligent, warm and friendly
"Loved it. Give five signs that identify the werewolf. Excellent question."
Large black dog
Very good-looking, bit haughty, black hair, grey eyes
Always in for a joke, very intelligent, ringleader
"Put that away, will you, before Wormtail wets himself with excitement."
Hazel eyes, black untidy hear, wears glasses
A bit arrogant and cocky, always in for a joke, very intelligent, ringleader
"How thick are you Wormtail? You run around with a werewolf once a month!"
Small mousy-haired boy, rat-like face with small, watery eyes and pointed nose
Cowardly, easily influenced, adores Sirius and James, not very intelligent
"I've got the snout shape, the pupils of the eyes and the tufted tail, but I couldn't think what else...."
The Marauder's Map
"Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business."
"Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony, and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git."
"Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a professor."
"Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball."
The Marauder's Map is a magical Map of Hogwarts, showing the entire Hogwarts grounds including secret passages out of Hogwarts and into Hogsmeade. The Map also shows the location of people in real time. It looks like a large but empty piece of old parchment until it is activated with a tap of a wand and the phrase: "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." Once the Map is not needed anymore, it can be cleared by another tap and the words: "Mischief Managed!"
The Map was confiscated by Filch at some point but snatched form his filing cabinet by Fred and George, who put it to good use and later passed the Map on to Harry.
