Ron Weasley is a major character in the Harry Potter novels.

Canon Background

Ron Weasley meets Harry Potter on the platform of Track 9 3/4 at the start of their first year at Hogwarts and quickly becomes his best friend. Later, he and Harry befriend Hermione Granger.

Ron was born into a wizard family. He has five older brothers (Bill, Charlie, Percy, and twins Fred and George) and as a result is haunted by feelings of insecurity. He also has a younger sister, Ginny, and parents Molly and Arthur.

In the epilogue, he is married to Hermione and has two kids.


Ron's fanon characterization served as the inspiration for the TV Tropes page Ron the Death Eater. The trope describes fanon that turns a heroically aligned canonical character into a villain, often, but not always, in service of shipping. Villainous incarnations of Ron can occasionally be found in Harry/Hermione fics.


Ron is paired with lots of other HP characters in fanfiction. Some of the most popular pairings include:
