The Wolfman

The patronus is not a character in its own right, but a spell that the wizard produces and which can take on a custom form if the wizard manages to master the technique sufficiently. This patternus is a kind of shield of light that allows to protect the wizard from different enemies, in particular from detractors. Remus Lupin was one of the best friends of James Potter, Harry’s father, and he has the particularity of being a werewolf. For this reason, his bossus is logically a wolf. Harry met him for the first time when Dumbledore hired him as a teacher of defense against the forces of evil in third grade. It was also this year that the Dark Ones were sent to Hogwarts to protect the school from a potential attack by Sirius Black and it is for this reason that Lupin taught Harry to produce a patronus, although it is a technique normally well above his level.

A much cuter wolf

Remus Lupin’s patronus is a much cuter and more normal wolf than his werewolf form which is really a kind of cross between a man and a wolf. The patronus being a shield of light, the wolf is represented in blue plastic. Its coat is very nicely represented and its tail and one of its front legs give a nice impression of movement. From its flanks and legs there are slightly lighter filaments that represent the movement and supernatural side of the patternus.
