Remus Lupin is a character in the Harry Potter series. He was Harry Potter's professor for a year and was one of the Marauders during his school years, along with James Potter, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew. He is a werewolf.
Favored time periods include his Hogwarts years, First War, the period of time between James and Lily's deaths, his year as a professor at Hogwarts, Second War, and Post-war (which can sometimes mean afterlife stories).
Many fic tend to focus on him removing himself from the Wizarding World in hopes of making a better living that way, or trying to find a way to afford Wolfsbane Potion.
Some fans have used the idea that Remus inherited a small cottage from his folks, and still lives there on occasion, though it is often small and/or rundown. Usually this is the home he grew up in, and many fans have placed it somewhere in or near Wales.
Another popular fanon idea was that Remus may have been Harry's father. Before the revelation that his middle name was John, some guessed the J might stand for James, and believed that somehow he was Harry's father, or that he and the true Remus had switched places the night of the attack, and he was now stuck in Remus's body. Others have suggested Remus was Harry's true father all along, unknown to James.
Chocolate is another focus of fans. Some suggest that he always carries around a bar of chocolate with him, not for help with dementors, but because he loves it.
Remus is most frequently paired with Sirius Black, both during their Hogwarts years and after his return from Azkaban (Lie Low at Lupin's). See Remus/Sirius. Sometimes called Puppies or Wolfstar by fans of the pair.
Other sometimes common pairings:
He is also commonly paired with Hermione Granger, sometimes as a schooltime crush, sometimes post-Hogwarts, though these stories have become far less common since the final book.
