Ron Weasley was Harry's, and Hermione's, best friend. Fiery haired and headed, Ron was the second youngest of the seven Weasley children. Used to hand-me-downs, from robes to rats, Ron’s friendship with Harry often came under pressure as he tried to deal with living in the shadow of his best friend. However, there was more to Ron than his red hair and broken wand. Ron might not have Hermione’s brains or Harry’s fame, but his loyalty, bravery and selflessness make him an important part of the trio.
