Social Status: Because Remus' father, John, came from a fairly well to do family who run a successful business in Blackpool, some people might recognize the name Lupin as being people on the lower branch of the rich class. Remus, however, is not rich, due to his father marrying a woman from the middle class. Since his father's and grandfather's deaths, his paternal relatives are civil to him if he should ever call or visit, but they never make a move to keep in contact with him.

Appearance: Remus has light brown hair with a reddish tint to it and cocoa brown eyes. If one were to look at a height and weight chart, Remus would fall just lightly into the underweight range. He's 6'0" (183 cms) and weighs 132 pounds (60 kgs). Because of his illness and photophobia, he has pale skin and looks tired often. He prefers wearing earth-toned clothes, not wanting to stand out in a crowd. He always wears long-sleeved shirts and pants, even in the summer, to hide his pale skin and because his illness makes him slightly cold intolerant.

Personality: Remus is a bit strange when it comes to people. He likes to be liked so he is kind to those who cannot possibly do him any good, treating others with respect in the hopes of being treated with respect back. He is very gentle and patient, being able to count on one hand the number of times he’s yelled at someone in anger in the last 10 years. Remus is always willing to help someone out, with or without being asked. At the same time, he’s very independent and is wary about letting others get too close to him.. He’s used to being alone but if someone gains his complete trust, they have it for life. He wants to do the best he can do in life so he tries to give whatever he does his all. Remus has a hard time not being independent. He dislikes leaving things in other people’s hands, preferring to get them done on his own. He’s very stubborn about money too. He doesn’t like it when people give him anything that’s expensive or brand new. He’d rather work for the finer things in life than get them free because it makes him feel proud of himself that he can afford to on his own.

A few odd quirks about him are the things he does to calm down. Whenever Remus gets upset, he either goes to the library or a place with water, be it a lake, river, pond, or even a fountain. His family owns a bookstore and he grew up surrounded by books, as well as living close to the ocean. Being around books or nearby water reminds him of being at home and brings back happy and peaceful memories to help him calm down.

History: Remus is the son of John and Saoirse Lupin. He was named Remus because of his mother's love of mythology. She couldn't decide between Romulus or Remus but when she looked up the meanings, 'citizen of Rome' or 'swift', she chose Remus. John's parents, Conall and Jeanette, were not happy about him marrying someone beneath their class but they grudgingly accepted it because they still loved their son.

For the first few years of his life, Remus grew up in his mother's hometown of Lerwick on the Shetland Islands of Scotland. He lost his father when he was very young at the age of 5 when John died in a car accident. At the funeral, he met his paternal relatives for the first time. They wanted nothing to do with Saoirse and her son, but Conall saw the next possible heir of his company in Remus, so he invited the child, and only the child, to come and visit him every summer. Conall and Saoirse reached an agreement and Remus started spending one month every summer with his grandfather. Over time, Conall started to see Remus more as a grandson then a possible heir. He grew to truly dote upon him, to Remus' slight annoyance. The rest of his father's family hardly ever spent time with him during these visits and after his younger cousin was born, his uncle Aaron made sure he was never near her. Remus always felt much more at home with his mother's family.

Saoirse and Remus lived in the same house as his grandparents and Remus spent much of his time at the family bookstore that Donnie's father had first started. Saoirse taught him to read at a young age and it wasn't uncommon at all for little Remus to be trailing after one of his relatives, begging them to read stories to him. Books became his gateway to faraway places and it wasn't long before he developed a love of mythology just like his mother.

After Remus started school, he found that, because of his illness and love of mythology, he was often an outcast amoung his fellow students. Remus excelled in school and excelled so much, he got a scholarship to Hogwarts. For the first time in his life, he made four good friends: James Potter, Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, and Lily Evans. Sirius and James had a knack for pranks and Remus gradually found himself getting pulled along into their antics. Remus was very stubborn about his schoolwork and almost obsessive to a point. Because he had been given a scholarship to come, he wanted to do the best that he could do. His friends often had to drag him away from his textbooks when he got too into studying. He graduated one of the top students in his class and it was because of that that, years later, he found himself landing a teaching position at the school.

Sadly, Remus lost all of his close friends in a tragic accident not many years after they left school. James and Lily died in a car accident that Sirius was supposedly responsible for. He was told Sirius later died in jail. Peter vanished off the face of the earth and he believes his other friend to be dead as well. The blow hit him hard and Remus spent a year back at home, surrounded by his mother and family as he struggled to get over the loss.

Random Facts:
- Remus loves books all of sorts but especially the classics and poetry.
- He has quite a big sweet tooth for chocolate.
- His mother taught him how to play guitar and he fell in love with the instrument. When his grandfather found out he liked playing, he hired a private piano and violin instructor, telling Remus that a proper person played the piano or violin, not the guitar. Remus grinned and bore it and even ended up joining the Hogwarts orchestra with his violin, but he loves playing the guitar far more than the other two instruments. The one he has currently was his grandfather's which was passed down to his mother then to him, so it's one of his most treasured posessions.
- Remus' French grandmother disliked him so much that, even though she knew basic English, refused to speak to him in anything but French. His grandfather hired a tutor to teach him the language so he could understand and have a conversation with her. This is why he strived to learn the language as fluently as he could, because it was the only link he really had with his father's mother and he wanted her to be at least a little proud of him for it.
- Remus absolutely loves the ocean because he grew up right next to it and loves things that smell like it along with water.
- He really doesn't like it when people give up or don't try their bests at something. He also doesn't like people who get things without having to work for them, as well as people who don't do what they say they're going to do.
- For some odd reason, Remus really does not like being touched. He gets mildly annoyed even when someone is standing very close to him and absolutely hates being in large, packed, unmoving crowds. He’s not much for standing in a line for a long time either because people seem to think that the closer they are to the end, the sooner they’ll get through so they press closer together. Because of this, he either does things very early or does them much later after everyone’s gone... or not at all.
- Remus absolutely loves Astronomy, largely to do with the mythological stories of the constellations. Because he spends so much time looking up at the night sky, his friends in Hogwarts jokingly gave him the nickname Moony.
- Remus has anemia, causing him to feel fatigued and weak. He can't participate in rigorous sports because if he overexerts himself, he gets short of breath.
- He suffers from migraines roughly once a month. He mostly lies in his bed and shuts the lights off, waiting in silence and darkness for it to be over when this happens.
- Remus is also photophobic, meaning he's light sensitive. He can walk around in sunlight just fine but he almost always wears a pair of sunglasses when outside or else the sun's light gives him a headache. When inside, he usally doesn't wear any but he has a pair of more lightly tinted ones just in case he needs them. He also has a pair of normal reading glasses. He prefers the dark much more and hardly ever uses the lights in his home except for a dim lamp or two at night in order to see.
