"So what would you like me to do? Magic myself popular? Conjure myself into a new house? Transfigure myself into a better student?" (CC1.4)

Albus Potter

Middle child of Harry and Ginny Potter, named for Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. Much more to come…

When he begins Hogwarts he’s quite nervous about being sorted into Slytherin, thanks in large part to the goading of his older brother James; Harry reassures him that the Sorting Hat will take his choice into account if he wants it to (DH/e).

Albus is Neville Longbottom's godson (Pm). When he was six years old, his best friend was Rose Granger-Weasley (CC1.10).

He attended the 2014 Quidditch World Cup Final with his family, where his father introduced him and his brother to Viktor Krum. He was the only one of the Potters to be supporting Brazil, his hero being the Brazilian Chaser Gonçalo Flores (Pm). However, by the time he starts at Hogwarts two years later, he and his best friend both despise Quidditch (CC1.4).

He meets Scorpius Malfoy on the Hogwart's Express (CC1.3) and, recognising that they both have issues with famous parents, they sit together and eventually become best friends. To the shock of the other students and the delight of Scorpius, Albus is sorted into Slytherin (CC1.4).
