Arthur has red hair and is going bald. He is tall and thin and wears glasses.

Arthur has a boyish personality. He is easily amused and fascinated by "little things", such as quidditch and his children's pranks. He is also much more lenient than Molly. He takes a big interest in Muggles and their habits. He has therefore been accused of being a blood traitor. However, since Arthur is a pure-blood, most of his ideas about the Muggle world are quite naive. Arthur can also be a little absent-minded.

Arthur Weasley and Lucius Malfoy share a profound dislike of each other.


Molly and Arthur know each other from their Hogwarts days. Both were Gryffindors.

First War and Interwar Period

After leaving Hogwarts, Arthur joined the Ministry. At some point, he became head of the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office. The post was neither very prestigious nor particularly well paid. But it allowed Arthur to make a lot of useful contacts in the different Ministry departments: throughout the series, he is able to extract favours here and there, from a temporary connection of the Dursleys' fireplace to the Floo Network to seats in the top box at the Quidditch World Cup (GF5).

The continually increasing Weasley Family lived at the Burrow in rather confined circumstances.

Arthur spent his free time examining and enchanting Muggle objects. The most prominent was his Flying Ford Anglia. After Ron and Harry used the car to fly to Hogwarts, Arthur had to face an inquiry at the Ministry.

The Second War

Like his wife and his two eldest sons Arthur joined the Order of the Phoenix by the time that the Second War began. He was severely wounded by Nagini when he watched the entrance to the Department of Mysteries (OP21).

When the Ministry of Magic finally accepted that Lord Voldemort had indeed come back, Arthur was promoted as the Head of Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects (HBP5).

After Hagrid crashed Sirius' motorcycle, Arthur managed to fix it, and gave it back to Harry, its rightfull owner (BLC).


  • On August 2, 1995, Arthur sent a letter to Harry, wanrning him not to leave his aunt and uncle's house (OP1).
