Ron Weasley is a major character in the Harry Potter novels.
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 is the least popular character of the Trio, and gets less fan attention than several characters with considerably less 'screentime' such as Snape & Draco. His 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. Ron's canonical marriage to Hermione puts him in conflict with her popular pairings with Harry, Snape and Draco. Villainous incarnations of Ron can occasionally be found in Harry/Hermione fics. In Snape/Hermione fics, he is often portrayed as a slob lacking intellectual interests.
In futurefics, Ron's often written as an Auror or in training to become one; he's often partnered with Harry. Rowling's post-canonical decision to have him leave the Aurors to help George in the joke shop wasn't enormously popular.

Rare pairings include with Peter Pettigrew, based on the fact that Ron's rat, Scabbers, is Peter's animagus form.
