Bill Weasley is a minor character in the Harry Potter novels.


Bill is the oldest of Molly and Arthur Weasley's seven children. His younger siblings are Charlie, Percy, twins Fred and George, Ron and Ginny. He is married to Fleur Delacour.

He is a cursebreaker and works for Gringotts Bank.

During a patrol at Hogwarts, when a bunch of Death Eaters broke into the school, Bill was injured by Fenrir Greyback, a werewolf. Although Greyback was not transformed at the time, the wounds were still contaminated making Bill develop a liking for very rare steaks.[1]

Some fans had suspected that Bill's given name might me "Bilius" (after his uncle), but it was confirmed in Deathly Hallows that Bill is indeed short for "William".


Due to Bill's attack from Fenrir Greyback, a lot of fics that take place after HBP was published showcase this, usually to increase the werewolf traits/characteristics such as the need for a mate or getting antsy during and around the full moon. Due to this and increase of Bill/Remus pairing showed up due to Remus being the closet werewolf.
