General | Latest Info

Peter Pettigrew, OM, usually referred to as Wormtail or Scabbers, was a wizard and son of Mr and Mrs Pettigrew. He began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1971 and was sorted into Gryffindor House after Sorting Hat ponder over which house he belonged to for over five minutes, true Hatstall. During his years at Hogwarts, he became one of the Marauders; he was best friends with Sirius Black, James Potter, and Remus Lupin, and together they created Marauder's Map. During the First Wizarding War, Peter was a member of the Order of Phoenix, but became a spy when he was coerced into joining Lord Voldemort. He was made Secret - Keeper for Potters when they went into hiding by use of Fidelius Charm, and betrayed James, his wife Lily, and their son Harry to Lord Voldemort. After Voldemort's fall, he fakes his own death and frames Sirius for betraying James and Lily, as well as for his own murder and those of twelve Muggles he killed during his escape. Peter spends twelve years living in his Animagus form as the Weasley family's pet rat, Scabbers. However, his identity was exposed by Sirius and Remus in 1994, and Pettigrew, with nowhere else to go, seeks protection in returning to the service of Lord Voldemort, whom he finds in the forests of Albania. Pettigrew played a key role in Voldemort's rebirth and continued to serve him during the Second Wizarding War. In spring of 1998, during Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, in a moment of rare mercy, he hesitates to strangle Harry. Silver hand Lord Voldemort had given Pettigrew to interpret his hesitation as weakness and / or disloyalty, and strangle him to Death, saving Harry and finally finding redemption for his treason, despite his reputation remaining tarnished as many remain dubious of evidence of his innate bravery.

Kiawah Island Turtle Team volunteers Lynne Sager and Cindy Lockhart come to the rescue! They quickly called South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and waited with Turtle for SCDNR to arrive. Once SCDNR staff Tyler Harrell arrive, she quickly assessed the situation. Tyler and volunteers wad into tidal pool to rescue Scabbers. Once they began moving him, they noticed that he was missing the majority of his front left flipper, most likely due to a predator attack, and appeared to be tethered to something. With multiple lines wrap around his body and flippers, Tyler carefully cut rope to release Scabbers. They were pulling the rest of the line out of the water when they noticed it was attached to the second loggerhead Sea Turtle. Second, loggerhead was severely entangled and unfortunately decease. Reminder of the hazards of derelict fishing gear, and the all too real consequences of entanglement. Scabbers was most likely struggling to surface given the weight of the second Turtle holding him down and was very fortunate to have been found in time.

Biography

Pettigrew goes into hiding as a rat, hoping to avoid Lord Voldemort's other supporters. As Voldemort had met his downfall on Peter's information, Death Eaters suspected him of being a traitor; he feared that if they learn of his continued existence, ones who escape incarceration would kill him for leaving their organisation in such a chaotic state. Looking for Wizarding family to take him in, he comes into possession of Percy Weasley and, later, Percy's youngest brother Ron. He was taken good care of while living with Weasleys and was named Scabbers. As Scabbers, Pettigrew returns to Hogwarts with Percy Weasley when he begins his education in the 1987 - 1988 school year. Jacob's sibling meets him and Percy immediately after the Start - of - Term Feast the following year while helping William Weasley study for his Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests. During this time, Percy seems to be the only one to think positively of rat. Later in the 1988 - 1989 school year, he escaped from Percy and gains possession of Marauder's Map. He was found in his rat form along with a Map in the Icy Corridor by Jacob's sibling. He escapes again, and later encounters Jacob's sibling while in his human form. He obliviated students to make them forget about their encounter, and escape yet again. He eventually ends up back with Percy, and his disappearance during year does not make Weasleys suspect anything about him. It was clear Scabbers was an extraordinary rat; he was unusually old for a rat; they had an average life expectancy of two to three years, yet the Weasley family owned him for twelve. The reason he chose to be adopted by the wizard family was that he could keep track of news in the Wizarding world and could rejoin his master should he return to power. Position as he was, he could also bring Harry Potter as a welcome - back gift, so no Death Eater would dare claim him as a traitor, but he never took action during his time as Ron's pet, because Voldemort was not strong enough to protect him. Despite once biting Gregory Goyle on the knuckle when he attempted to steal Harry and Ron's food, Ron generally thought that Scabbers were useless, since all Scabbers did was eat and sleep. However, Ron does show his affections for Scabbers as he becomes quite upset when he thinks Scabbers had been eaten by Hermione Granger's cat, Crookshanks. In 1993, Sirius Black escaped from Azkaban after seeing a picture of Pettigrew's rat form in the Daily Prophet article about the Weasley family's trip to Egypt. Soon, scabbers begin to turn thin and bald. Ron thought at first this was due to the stress of the trip, and then fear of Hermione Granger's new cat Crookshanks, while Harry thought that Scabbers was finally reaching the end of his lifespan. He had been agitated by news of Sirius Black's escape from Azkaban, afraid that he would find him and finally avenge Potters.


Physical appearance

Pettigrew was an extremely short man with grubby skin, small watery eyes, and a point nose, all of which were lingering attributes of his animagus rat form; he even spoke in a squeaky voice that is another lingering attribute of his rat form. In his youth, his hair was mousy brown, but by his mid - thirties, it had thin, lost lot of its colour, and acquired large bald patch. The stress he endures also apparently causes him to appear middle - age by his mid - thirties. He was also described as fat in his youth, but when forced to return to his human form in Shrieking Shack, he looked as though he had lost plenty of weight in a short time, mostly due to his stress of fearing Sirius wrath. In 1981, he cut off his right index finger as part of a ploy to fake his own Death, which is reflected in his scabbers form, and, fourteen years later, he cut off his entire right hand at the request of Lord Voldemort. Voldemort uses magic to give Pettigrew shining silver, glove - like replacement. As Death Eater, he bore a dark mark on his left inner forearm.

Personality and traits

Pettigrew enters Hogwarts at the same time as Sirius Black, James Potter, and Remus Lupin, group of friends who come to call themselves Marauders. He was not as skilled wizard as his friends, and seemed to hang out with them largely because he idolized them. With them, though, he learns to become Animagus, helps write Marauders Map, and joins Order of Phoenix. Peter was a person who was easily influenced by those around him, allying himself with whomever was strongest. Once he was out of school, Pettigrew became an easy target for the Dark Lord as he searched for way to strike James and Lily. Peter was coerced into becoming a spy for Voldemort. As he put it, Potters and their friends did know this, of course, and continued to trust Peter so completely that, on Sirius Black's advice, he made James and Lily Secret Keeper.S Weeks later, they were dead, when Peter betrayed their hiding place to his master.

As Scabbers, Pettigrew was not fond of Hermione's cat, Crookshanks, and with good reason. Crookshanks is part of Kneazle, which means that he can sense duplicity.

Sirius Black had a chance to photograph Weasley's family and recognized his old friend at once. Black became so obsessed with tracking traitors down that he was able to resist the influence of Dementors long enough to escape. In June of 1994, Pettigrew finally had his reckoning with Sirius, Remus, Lupin, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Severus Snape in Shrieking Shack, and Scabbers ' true identity was reveal. Sirius and Lupin would have killed him, but for Harry's intervention. Harry wanted to clear his godfather's name and insisted that Peter be held for trial instead. Pettigrew now owes Harry life debt. Servant of Lord Voldemort Unfortunately for Sirius, Peter was able to escape when Lupin's transformation into a werewolf distracted his captors. The first thing he did was to go searching for his dark master, Voldemort. Amazingly, he found him, existing bodiless with snake name Nagini in Albania.

Magical abilities and skills

Scabbers is not your average pet because hes not really a pet at all. Instead, he was animagus form of Peter Pettigrew. Considering the fact that Scabbers was actually human in disguise, you think he would be little more useful than he was. He was quite a lazy pet, and Ron always complained that he did n't do anything useful or have any Magical powers. While it is said in books that some Magical rats can be quite flashy and intelligent, Scabbers was the most useful rat there was, despite the fact he should have been most intelligent.
