    Harry Potter: What J.K. Rowling Said Happened To The Characters After Book 7

    Since you STILL ask us Potterheads about what happened to the characters after the events of Deathly Hallows, here's a compilation of what J.K. Rowling herself confirmed in a web chat after the last book was released. I promise you: this is not from fan fiction!

    1. Harry became the head of the Auror Department.


    Kingsley Shacklebolt became, unsurprisingly, the permanent Minister of Magic, and of course he wanted Harry to head the Aurors. You'll be happy to know that he and the trio worked very hard to de-corrupt the ministry after the days of Fudge and Umbridge. (Another interesting yet unrelated fact you might want to know: Harry loses his Parseltongue ability after he defeats Voldemort)

    2. Ron joined George at the Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes.


    Besides helping Harry with the Auror work, Ron became George's partner at the WWW, which turned into a phenomenal success (like it wasn't already).

    3. Hermione continued to work on S.P.E.W. (and not by making woolly socks this time).


    After Hogwarts, she immediately began to work at the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, and improved the lives of house-elves. She then moved to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, where she helped eradicate pureblood laws. That girl Hermione, always making us proud.

    4. Ginny became a professional Quidditch player.


    She spent a few years as a "celebrated" player for the Holyhead Harpies, and then retired to settle down. She then became the Senior Quidditch Correspondent for the Daily Prophet. Don't you wish Harry also followed through with Quidditch?

    5. George married Angelina Johnson and named his first son after Fred (tears).


    In case you didn't know, Angelina was on the Gryffindor Quidditch team with the twins. Their two kids were named Fred and Roxanne.

    6. Percy became a high-ranking official at the ministry.


    His days of being called "Weatherby" and writing boring-as-hell reports about thin-bottomed cauldrons are long gone. Under Kingsley's regime, Percy became a successful official at the ministry. He married a girl named Audrey and had two daughters, Molly and Lucy.

    7. Charlie Weasley never got married.

    8. J.K. Rowling also wrote a mock-up of the family tree and here it is for everyone to see:


    So now that the characters' futures are a bit more de-mystified, you can quit bugging us about that epilogue! Here's the full web chat if you would like to read it:
