Nymphadora Tonks

Nymphadora Tonks more commonly known as Tonks, occasionally Dora, was a British half-blood witch and a Metamorphmagus. She was the only child of Ted and Andromeda Tonks. Tonks attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1984-1991 and was Sorted into Hufflepuff House. She was in the same year at Hogwarts as Gryffindor Charlie Weasley.

After leaving Hogwarts, Tonks joined the Ministry of Magic and trained to become an Auror under the watchful eye of Alastor Moody, qualifying in 1994. She fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. At some point, Tonks fell in love with Remus Lupin, her fellow Order member and a werewolf who felt he was too poor, old, and dangerous for her and thus rejected her feelings, although he felt the same way. In the wake of the return of Lord Voldemort, Tonks was assigned to Hogsmeade as part of the Auror task force sent to guard Hogwarts. She later fought in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower. After seeing the love Fleur Delacour held for Bill Weasley despite his injuries, she publicly declared her love for Remus.

Tonks and Remus were married in the summer of 1997. Tonks became pregnant and Remus began to worry that he had passed on his werewolf condition to their son, though this proved not to be the case as the child inherited her metamorphic abilities. He in response to this attempted to leave Tonks, but was convinced to return to her. She gave birth to a son, Teddy Remus Lupin and the couple named Harry the godfather. Tonks fought in the Battle of Hogwarts and was finally murdered by Bellatrix Lestrange, her maternal aunt. Her murder was avenged by her order colleague and friend Molly Weasley. After her death, her son was raised by her mother and Harry.

Tonks was one of my favourite characters. Nymphadora Tonks marries Remus Lupin but sadly dies in the Second Wizarding War at the Battle of Hogwarts. Tonks was a Metamorphmagus and had the ability to change her appearance at will, without the need for a wand, spell, or potion. She tells Harry that the ability helped her greatly in the Concealment and Disguise in her Auror training. Throughout the fifth book, she changes her hair color and style very frequently, although her favourite hair style is short, spiky, and bright pink. She also changes the shape of her nose between bites at dinner, to entertain her fellow diners.
