Nymphadora Tonks is a character in the Harry Potter series. She dislikes her given name and goes by Tonks, and her only canon nickname is "Dora," used only by her father, though fanfiction (especially badfic) often uses her full first name or gives her unlikely nicknames.

Tonks is a metamorphmagus, which means she can change her appearance at will. This is a popular topic in fanfiction.

Fan Response & Shipping

Tonks was a popular character to ship after her introduction in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Harry/Tonks was rather popular, as was Charlie/Tonks when fans determined that she was probably in the same year as Charlie Weasley at Hogwarts,[1] and, to a lesser extent, Bill/Tonks, especially featuring an evil!Fleur. Remus/Tonks also was a very popular pairing even before the pairing became canon in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

She is also a popular femslash character. Some common pairings include Ginny/Tonks, Hermione/Tonks, and Tonks/Fleur.

  1. ^ Tonks's comments in Order of the Phoenix suggest that she graduated Hogwarts in 1991 if she started her three-year Auror training immediately thereafter (See Nymphadora Tonks is born at the Harry Potter Lexicon). The FAQs on J.K. Rowling's official site note that Charlie is seven years older than Ron, so he would have also finished school in 1991 (although this is a matter of some debate). Tonks and Charlie appear in the same year in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
