Albus Severus Potter, you are named after two headmasters at Hogwarts. One of them was in Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I have ever known.
- Harry to Albus after he was afraid to come to House Slytherin

Albus Severus "Al" Potter (* 2006) is an English half-blooded wizard and the second child of Harry and Ginevra Potter (born Weasley). Albus was born two years after his brother James Sirius and two years before his sister Lily Luna.

Albus was named after Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. Both were former principals of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and both great wizards his father knew. He is the godson of Neville Longbottom.

In 2017 Albus began his apprenticeship at Hoghwarts with Rose Granger-Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy. Albus was sorted into the Slytherin house. He quickly befriended Scorpius, whose relationship grew deeper over time. For a long time he had problems being the son of the famous Harry Potter, as this put enormous pressure on him.


Early Years (2006-2017)

Albus Severus Potter was born in or around 2006 to Harry Potter and Ginevra Weasley's second child.[6] It was named in honor of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. His godfather was Neville Longbottom.

In 2014, Albus, around eight years old, took part in the final of the 427th Quidditch World Cup with his family.[7] He and his older brother James Potter II were introduced by their father to the Bulgarian seeker Viktor Krum.[8] For the final match, Albus wore green clothes in support of Brazil, while the rest of his family, with the exception of his mother, who was with the journalists, wore Bulgarian red. According to his mother, this was because Albus was a big fan of the Brazilian hunter Gonçalo Flores.[7]

Albus almost fell out of the VIP box cheering when Flores scored the first goal of the game, but his uncle Ronald Weasley grabbed his seal and saved him. James laughed, which is why the Daily Prophet's correspondent, Rita Skeeter, who hosted the game live with Ginny, suspected he'd pushed Albus.[7] Harry didn't seem to care too much, however, and just gave Albus a few treats from Luna Lovegood.[7]

Albus applauded after the Bulgarian national Quidditch team won the tournament. Rita Skeeter commented that he did this at the request of his "advertising" father. This provoked Harry Ginny Potter's wife, who was close to Skeeter, which is why she bewitched her middle sentence.[7]

School days at Hogwarts

First year of school

On September 1, 2017, Albus began his freshman year with cousin Rose Granger-Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His older brother James had been at Hogwarts for two years and was starting his third year. James had a habit of telling Albus untrue stories about Hogwarts, which was a playful tease between the two of them.

Before getting on the Hogwarts Express, Albus told his father that he was afraid to come to Slytherin because his older brother had raised him with it. To which Harry replied that the bravest man he ever knew - Severus Snape, after whom Albus was named - was a Slytherin student. Harry also said that he and Ginny didn't care which house their son was in and that way Slytherin would have a great student. Harry also told Albus that if he preferred Gryffindor the Sorting Hat would take that into account, as it did with Harry.[9] This was the first time he had told one of his children about it. As the train left the station, Albus waved to his father.

On the train, Albus and Rose looked for a compartment where she could sit. Rose reminded Albus that her parents had met on the train and had been friends ever since. So it was very important for Rose to find the right compartment to sit in, as this was where they too could meet their lifelong friends. Albus and Rose opened the door to a compartment and found Scorpius sitting there alone, introducing himself to him. Rose went to look for another compartment, but Albus decided to stay and spend the rest of the journey with Scorpius. The two children became friends, exchanging stories and sweets on the trip to Hogwarts.

Upon arriving at Hogwarts, Albus and his classmates attended the sorting ceremony. The Talking Hat sorted Rose into Gryffindor and both Scorpius and Albus into Slytherin. The latter came as a surprise to many. This caused him to be mocked by many for being a shame a Potter came to Slytherin. As could be seen in the freshman year, Albus had no natural talent for magic and found it very difficult in subjects like Potions. During his first flying lesson, Albus was so bad that he was called "Slytherin Squib" by his classmates.

During the next three years of school, Albus suffered from being Harry's son as he had to meet so many expectations from others. While Albus was being bullied, so to speak, with only Scorpius as a friend, Rose had a better time at Hogwarts, became hugely popular, and was a Quidditch hunter for the Gryffindors in her sophomore year.

Second year of school

Albus told Harry Potter that he wanted to be alone on the platform before going to Hogwarts because he was having a hard time at school. Harry was hurt and asked Albus to make a few more friends this school year, but Albus said he didn't need anyone but Scorpius.

Third year of school

The next year the family was back on platform 9¾, where Albus burned his father's permit to go to Hogsmeade because he was not interested. Leaving his angry father behind, he found Scorpius Malfoy, from whom he learned that his friend's mother, Astoria Malfoy, had died that summer and promised to come to the funeral.

Fourth grade

The next summer, Albus overheard a private conversation between his father and Amos Diggory. Diggory had turned up at the Potter family's home with supposed niece Delphini. After hearing a rumor that the British Ministry of Magic had received an illegal time turner from Theodore Nott, Amos asked Albus' father to use it to go back in time and save Cedric Diggory from death. Harry denied the Ministry had the time turner and rejected the idea. He also rightly said that he could not interfere with the time. While Albus and Delphi overheard the conversation, they met for the first time. Delphi invited Albus to visit her and Amos at St. Oswald's home for the elderly, where she allegedly worked.

The day before Albus started his fourth year, Harry spoke to Albus alone in his bedroom, hoping to get him to change his behavior towards his family. Harry gave Albus the blanket he was wrapped in when he was brought to the Dursley family. Albus didn't take the gift too kindly, however, and tried to make his father understand how he felt at school. The conversation, however, led to Albus saying that sometimes he didn’t wish he was Harry’s son and that he didn’t belong to the Potter family because it didn’t help him in school. Harry replied rashly that he sometimes wished that Albus wasn't his son either, which hurt Albus very much. Harry regretted saying this, but he couldn't undo the damage.

Escape from the Hogwarts Express

The next day, Albus was still very hurt by his father's words before he took the Hogwarts Express to his fourth year at Hogwarts. On the train, Rose Granger-Weasley tried to befriend Albus again, as they had little to do with each other since the beginning of their time. However, when she admitted that her parents had asked her to befriend him again, Albus said that he no longer wanted to have anything to do with her. During their conversation, however, Rose confirmed that the British Ministry of Magic had a time turner that was obtained during a robbery, which Harry Potter had previously denied.

Determined to correct his father's injustice and save Cedric Diggory, Albus convinced Scorpius Malfoy to get off the train with him and find the Time Turner instead of going to Hogwarts. Albus and Scorpius climbed through the window but met the food truck saleswoman on the roof, who was trying to prevent them from getting off the moving train. However, the two teenagers escaped and jumped off the train.

Albus and Scorpius traveled to the St. Oswald Nursing Home and met Delphini and Amos Diggory, who agreed to their plan. With Delphi's help, the three used Polyjuice Potion to transform into Ronald Weasley, Harry, and Hermione Granger and snuck into the Ministry of Magic. Albus, as Ron, convinced Hermione to go elsewhere while the other two went to Hermione's office to find the time-turner. They solved a series of puzzles from Hermione's bookshelf and discovered the time turner they stole.

travel trough time

While Delphini did not travel through time because their age would lead to unwanted attention, Albus and Scorpius used the time-turner and traveled back in time to the first task of the Triwizard Tournament. Albus and Scorpius dressed up as Durmstrang students in order not to attract attention in the crowd. When Cedric Diggory attempted the task, Albus disarmed him, preventing him from winning, thereby saving his life. After five minutes, Albus and Scorpius returned to the present, injuring Albus' arm.

Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Ginevra Weasley, desperately looking for Albus and Scorpius, found them in the Forbidden Forest, where they had just returned from the past. When Albus woke up cured in the Hogwarts Hospital Wing, he was disappointed to find that he had only created an alternate reality. In that timeline, Cedric was still dead, Albus was sorted into Gryffindor, and Rose Granger-Weasley no longer existed because Ron had married Padma Patil instead of Hermione Granger. Harry asked Albus to end his friendship with Scorpius and said that from now on he would monitor and control him closely and that if he ever talked to Scorpius again he would put a spell on him so that he could see and hear everything could be what Albus hears.

When Albus got back to school he reluctantly tried to stay away from Scorpius. In class, they realized that Hermione was now the mean Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. Eventually Delphini showed up at Hogwarts and made sure that Albus and Scorpius reconciled. The three then decided to correct their mistake and go to the second task, hoping that Cedric would lose more points to really save him.

After successful and returning to the present, Scorpius realized that they had again created an alternate timeline in which Cedric had survived but had become a Death Eater. As a Death Eater, Cedric had killed Neville Longbottom, who would have been decisive in Lord Voldemort's defeat. Albus Potter never existed like that. With the help of the resistance fighters Severus Snape, Ron and Hermione, Scorpius changed the time again and restored the original timeline and Albus.

Arrest of Delphini

Albus and Scorpius met Delphini in the Owlery, where they wanted to destroy the Time-Turner. Scorpius discovered Delphini's Augurey tattoo, which reminded him of the Augurey symbol from the Alternate Reality with Lord Voldemort. Then, when Delphini mentioned that she was raised by Euphemia Rowle, Scorpius realized that the Rowle family were notorious Death Eaters and therefore became suspicious of Delphini. Delphini revealed that she planned to use the Time-Turner to save Voldemort. Delphi broke their wands and killed Craig Bowker Jr., who they had unfortunately met. Delphini forced the two helpless teenagers to travel with her in time for the third task and restore the alternate timeline in which Voldemort had lived.

Albus and Scorpius, knowing that the Time-Turner only kept them in the past five minutes, tried to stop Delphini and met Cedric Diggory in the maze. Cedric freed Albus and Scorpius and helped them get the Time-Turner back, believing this was an obstacle for the tournament. When Cedric left, Albus told him that his father, Amos Diggory, loved him very much. Delphini did manage to get the Time Turner back, however, going back in time to October 30, 1981, the day before Albus' grandparents Lily Evans and James Potter were murdered. Delphini then went back to the present and destroyed the Time-Turner, leaving Albus and Scorpius behind.

Since Albus and Scorpius thought that Delphi probably wanted to kill Harry Potter himself so that the spell wouldn't fall back on Voldemort, they went to Godric's Hollow and saw James and Lily alive with their baby Harry. To warn everyone in the future of what was happening, Albus and Scorpius used Harry's blanket to send a message through time. Harry, Ron, Ginny and Draco deciphered the message and used a more advanced time turner to travel back to 1981 to help their children.

Ginny realized that Delphi was only trying to stop Voldemort from going into the Potters' house and killing them, so that his downfall would never happen. Harry transformed into Voldemort and planned to arrest Delphini. Delphi asked Voldemort, who was actually Harry, to accept her and revealed that she was the daughter of Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange
