Category:Order of the Phoenix
The Order of the Phoenix is a secret society of wizards who, under the leadership of Albus Dumbledore, dedicate themselves to bringing about the downfall of Lord Voldemort. The group was presumably formed during the First War, and lost many of its members back then.
During Voldemort's rise to power, Dumbledore formed a group of wizards who wished to fight against him and the Dark Arts and dubbed themsleves as the Order of the Phoenix, often shortened to theOrder. One of Dumbledore's points in making this party was including members from a wide variety of folk: from wizards, to half-giants, werewolves and Squibs, in contrast with the old pure-blood's beliefs.
After Voldemort's downfall, the Order got separated.
During the Second War, Sirius Black offered No. 12, Grimmauld Place to sereve as Headquarters for the Order. There are probably more than twnty wizards in it. Mainly, the Order, whilst Voldemort was kept in the dark, "were following Death Eaters and keeping tabs on them," while others, like Charlie Weasley, try to recruit more members and they stand in guard over something as well (OP4). After the prophecy accidentally smashed, however, the guarding of the Department of Mysteries stopped.
Dumbledore's Army was, in a way, some sort of small Order of the Phoenix version.
