Wizards are...
+
Wizards are the term for a group of magically gifted humans. It is both the general term for the magical population and the specific term for the male part, whereas female wizards are called witches.
 +
 
 +
Magic is genetically hereditary, and, being a recessive gene, it is quite rare.

===Pure-blood===
-
*
+
Pure-blood is a term for a person whose ancestors are all witches and wizards. However, most pure-bloods will have a Muggle somewhere on their family tree, although they generally deny it. Most pure-blood families are inter-related due to the struggle to maintain blood purity by only marrying other pure-bloods.
 +
It is assumed that most Slytherins and Death Eaters are pure-blooded, with a notable exception being [[Lord Voldemort]]. By the events of the Harry Potter series, the pure-blood families were in decline. Both [[Ron Weasley]] and [[Draco Malfoy]] descend from two of the few pure-blood families left. However, the Weasleys are referred to as blood traitors, and their status of being a pure blood is often questioned, especially by the Malfoys.

===Half-Blood===
-
<!-- At least one paragraph -->
+
Half-blood is a term for a person who is born to one magical parent and one non-magical parent. Some examples of half-bloods are [[Lord Voldemort]] and [[Severus Snape]]. Alternatively half-bloods can have a muggle-born parent and a pure-blood parent, as Muggle-borns are regarded as Muggles by pure-blood fanatics. [[Harry Potter]] is an example of this.

===Muggle-born===
 +
Muggle-born is a term for a witch or wizard whose parents are both Muggles. There is a lot of prejudice against muggle-borns in the Wizarding World, especially amongst pure-bloods. This dates back to at least the medieval era, as Salazar Slytherin notoriously despised Muggle-borns. Wizards hostile to Muggle-borns use the term Mudblood, which is a derogatory name for a Muggle-born witch or wizard. It is first used in [[Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets]] by [[Draco Malfoy]] of [[Hermione Granger]]. The term becomes more clear as it is used more in the series by Draco Malfoy and various Death Eaters.

The Death Eaters are a group controlled by [[Lord Voldemort]]. Their enemies are the [[Order of the Phoenix]], [[Dumbledore's Army]], and at times the [[Ministry of Magic|Ministry]].  The Death Eaters are anti-muggle and racist even though some of the members are half-blood.

<!-- At least one paragraph -->

The Order of the Phoenix is an organization fighting against Voldemort and his Death Eaters. It was founded by [[Albus Dumbledore]] during the First Wizarding War and was revived for the Second War. The Order was introduced in [[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]] and has remained an integral part of the books ever since. The Order often comes to Harry's aid during battles and was present at the Battle of Hogwarts and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower. The Order communicates through the use of Patronuses which was taught to them by Dumbledore. Members are required to have left school before they can join.

<!-- At least one paragraph -->

The Marauders were a group of friends at Hogwarts who developed [[The Marauder's Map]]. [[Remus Lupin]] was a werewolf, and when his friends learned this, they worked to become illegal [[Animagus|Animagi]] so they could accompany Lupin when he transformed at the full moon without being in danger themselves. [[James Potter|James Potter's]] Animagus was a stag (the same animal his son [[Harry Potter|Harry's]] [[Patronus Charm|Patronus]] took the form of), [[Sirius Black|Sirius Black's]] [[Animagus]] was a dog, and [[Peter Pettigrew|Peter Pettigrew's]] [[Animagus]] was a rat (which he later used to disguise himself as [[Ron Weasley|Ron Weasley's]] pet rat).

===Dumbledore's Army===
-
<!-- At least one paragraph -->
+
Dumbledore's Army was a group of Hogwarts students who wanted to learn Defense Against the Dark Arts from a real teacher since [[Dolores Umbridge]] (their Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher for that year) would not teach them any real defensive magic. [[Harry Potter]] was the leader/teacher of Dumbledore's Army because he had been able to defend himself against [[Lord Voldemort]] the previous year. The group was named Dumbledore's Army because the [[Ministry of Magic]] feared that [[Albus Dumbledore]] was creating an army to rise up against them. The DA was eventually disbanded when Umbridge discovered them, as they were operating illegally. They also unnofficially return when the Carrows teach at the school and Defense Against the Dark Arts is turned into Dark Arts. Since Harry is not at [[Hogwarts]] at the time, they may not of actually taught defense, but they often pulled stints like putting graffiti up on the wall saying "Dumbledore's Army still recruiting."

Riddle, Tom Marvolo "Lord Voldemort", also referred to as "You-Know-Who" and "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named"
 
-
31 December, 1926 - 2 May, 1998
 
-
Leader and founder of the Death Eaters in the 1970's. Killed in the Battle of Hogwarts after the destruction of his Horcruxes.

-
Major Death Eaters:
 
-
Snape, Severus
 
-
9 January, 1960 - 1 May, 1998
 
-
Snape led to the deaths of Lily and James Potter. He was, however, a double agent for Albus Dumbledore and the Order of the Phoenix. Snape was ultimately killed by Lord Voldemort for the mastery of the Elder Wand, even though he was not the master. Son of Muggle Tobias Snape and witch Eileen Prince.

-
Lestrange, Bellatrix
 
-
1951 - 2 May, 1998
 
-
Lestrange, formerly Black, was wife to Rudolphus Lestrange, sister to Narcissa Malfoy and Andromeda Tonks, and daughter to Cygnus Black III and Druella Rosier. Lestrange, the most fanatical and devoted Death Eater, was most well-known for the crime that earned her a life sentence in Azkaban: the use of the Cruciatus Curse on Frank and Alice Longobttom. Lestrange also performed countless murders, including those of her cousin Sirius Black and neice Nymphadora Lupin (formerly Nymphadora Tonks). Lestrange participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, the Battle over Little Whinging, and the Battle of Hogwarts. She was killed at the latter battle by Molly Weasley while fighting alongside her master. Lestrange was honored with the entrustment of Helga Hufflepuff's Cup shortly before Lord Voldemort's first downfall.

-
Malfoy, Lucius
 
-
born 1954
 
-
The wife of Narcissa Malfoy (formerly Black), father of Draco, grandfather to Scorpius Hyperion, and son of Abraxas. He was described as being very rich and snobby in the books, as well as being an expert in the Imperius Curse. Malfoy claimed to be under this very curse at the end of the First Wizarding War, and his story was believed by the Ministry. Malfoy was entrusted with Tom Riddle's Diary shortly before this point, and used it to reopen the Chamber of Secrets and attempt to discredit Ginny Weasley. This plan failed, however, and Malfoy was removed of the position of School Governer. Malfoy was present at the rebirth of Lord Voldemort and commanded the Death Eaters in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. He lost favor, however, in the aftermath of these events, and was pardoned for his crimes after his family's lack of participation in the Battle of Hogwarts.

This article is about wizarding humans in general. For a list with links to articles about specific wizards and witches, see Category:Wizards, Category:Witches, Category:Families, etc.

Wizards are the term for a group of magically gifted humans. It is both the general term for the magical population and the specific term for the male part, whereas female wizards are called witches.

Magic is genetically hereditary, and, being a recessive gene, it is quite rare.

Blood Status

See also Blood Purity

Pure-blood

Pure-blood is a term for a person whose ancestors are all witches and wizards. However, most pure-bloods will have a Muggle somewhere on their family tree, although they generally deny it. Most pure-blood families are inter-related due to the struggle to maintain blood purity by only marrying other pure-bloods. It is assumed that most Slytherins and Death Eaters are pure-blooded, with a notable exception being Lord Voldemort. By the events of the Harry Potter series, the pure-blood families were in decline. Both Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy descend from two of the few pure-blood families left. However, the Weasleys are referred to as blood traitors, and their status of being a pure blood is often questioned, especially by the Malfoys.

Half-Blood

Half-blood is a term for a person who is born to one magical parent and one non-magical parent. Some examples of half-bloods are Lord Voldemort and Severus Snape. Alternatively half-bloods can have a muggle-born parent and a pure-blood parent, as Muggle-borns are regarded as Muggles by pure-blood fanatics. Harry Potter is an example of this.

Muggle-born

Muggle-born is a term for a witch or wizard whose parents are both Muggles. There is a lot of prejudice against muggle-borns in the Wizarding World, especially amongst pure-bloods. This dates back to at least the medieval era, as Salazar Slytherin notoriously despised Muggle-borns. Wizards hostile to Muggle-borns use the term Mudblood, which is a derogatory name for a Muggle-born witch or wizard. It is first used in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by Draco Malfoy of Hermione Granger. The term becomes more clear as it is used more in the series by Draco Malfoy and various Death Eaters.

Organization Memberships

Death Eaters

The Death Eaters are a group controlled by Lord Voldemort. Their enemies are the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore's Army, and at times the Ministry. The Death Eaters are anti-muggle and racist even though some of the members are half-blood.

Order of the Phoenix

The Order of the Phoenix is an organization fighting against Voldemort and his Death Eaters. It was founded by Albus Dumbledore during the First Wizarding War and was revived for the Second War. The Order was introduced in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and has remained an integral part of the books ever since. The Order often comes to Harry's aid during battles and was present at the Battle of Hogwarts and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower. The Order communicates through the use of Patronuses which was taught to them by Dumbledore. Members are required to have left school before they can join.

Marauders

The Marauders were a group of friends at Hogwarts who developed The Marauder's Map. Remus Lupin was a werewolf, and when his friends learned this, they worked to become illegal Animagi so they could accompany Lupin when he transformed at the full moon without being in danger themselves. James Potter's Animagus was a stag (the same animal his son Harry's Patronus took the form of), Sirius Black's Animagus was a dog, and Peter Pettigrew's Animagus was a rat (which he later used to disguise himself as Ron Weasley's pet rat).

Dumbledore's Army

Dumbledore's Army was a group of Hogwarts students who wanted to learn Defense Against the Dark Arts from a real teacher since Dolores Umbridge (their Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher for that year) would not teach them any real defensive magic. Harry Potter was the leader/teacher of Dumbledore's Army because he had been able to defend himself against Lord Voldemort the previous year. The group was named Dumbledore's Army because the Ministry of Magic feared that Albus Dumbledore was creating an army to rise up against them. The DA was eventually disbanded when Umbridge discovered them, as they were operating illegally. They also unnofficially return when the Carrows teach at the school and Defense Against the Dark Arts is turned into Dark Arts. Since Harry is not at Hogwarts at the time, they may not of actually taught defense, but they often pulled stints like putting graffiti up on the wall saying "Dumbledore's Army still recruiting."
