The Order of the Phoenix was formed to stop Voldemort's rise but we only really see the second coming of the organization in the books. Many of Harry's peers' parents helped found and fight against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named during the First Wizarding War. These Redditors are pointing out interesting lore about the OG members of the Order.
Lupin Lived In Poverty After The First Wizarding War
From Redditor u/gohankr:
By the early 1990s, Lupin was living in poverty, in a tumbledown, semi-derelict cottage in Yorkshire. Albus Dumbledore tracked Lupin down in the summer of 1993, and offered him the post of Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor at Hogwarts. Thus again returning to the only place where he truly happy and felt like home.Interesting?
Mr. Weasley Was Saved From Being Killed Off Because Harry Was Losing Too Many Father Figures
From Redditor u/colourandcinema:
I once read in an interview with JK Rowling that the reason she changed her mind about killing off Mr. Weasley after the snake attack was that of all of Harry's father figures who die, it didn't seem fair to kill the one who was the least flawed.Interesting?
Snape Was So Talented He Infiltrated The Death Eaters And Fooled Voldemort At Age 20
From Redditor u/Cheese_Lord_Eggplant:
Being 20 years old at the time, though, is also pretty impressive. It means a couple of things. One is that he was already a Death Eater at 20, and a fairly important one, it seems. Another is that, at 20, he was already a skilled enough Occlumens to fool Lord Voldemort himself.Interesting?
James And Lily Were Only 21 When They Died
