Albus Severus "Al" Potter (b. 23 March, 2006) was a half-blood wizard and the second son of Harry and Ginny Potter (née Weasley). Albus is the middle of three children, born at least a year after his older brother, James, and two years before his younger sister Lily. He was named in honour of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. Albus Potter was sorted into Slytherin.
On September, 2017, Albus left for his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry along with his cousin, Rose Weasley, as well as Scorpius Malfoy. Before boarding the Hogwarts Express, Albus confided to his father(Harry) that he feared he might be sorted into Slytherin. In response, his father told him that the bravest man he ever knew — Severus Snape, whom Albus was named after — had been a Slytherin. Harry also assured his son that, if he was sorted into Slytherin, that the house would have gained a great student and that he and Ginny would think no less of him for it. Harry also told Albus that if he preferred Gryffindor, then the Sorting Hat would take this choice into account, as it had in his case (something Harry never told any of his other children). At this, Albus' face was described as being in wonder.' After much thought about the selection during his voyage aboard the Hogwarts Express, Albus decided not to choose what house he wanted to be in and leave it to the Sorting Hat. Thus, the hat decided to place Albus in Slytherin, to the amazement and joy of the Slytherins.
First yearEditOnce at Hogwarts, Albus was sorted into Slytherin, unlike many other members of his family. He rapidly formed a friendship with a fellow Slytherin Roxanne Weasley, who was also his cousin. To his happiness, Albus attained the position of Seeker on the Slytherin Quidditch team. At first he played with his captain's Firebolt, but lately his father bought the entire team new Thunderstorm. Albus also did not have a good relationship with Valerie Rosier, a granddaughter of a Death Eater. Valerie believes that Albus does not deserve to be in Slytherin for being a blood traitor.
On Halloween, Albus is faced with a conspiracy between the Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor, Mylor Silvanus, and the professor of Muggle Studies, Epibalsa McNaught, who seek answers about the past and the dark objects of Albriech Ambratorix. Embarking on this mystery, Albus involves his two best friends, Rose and Scorpius, on the tales of Ambratorix.
After witnessing the emotions of the Battle of Hogwarts and watching the murder of Colin Creevey, who eventually turned into a ghost and his friend, Albus finds a kinship between him and Ambratorix. Ambratorix is forced by Professor Monomon to the Ambratorix' grotto where Yaxley was waiting for him to open the Eye of the Worlds that Yaxley would use to complete their plans and to revive the Dark Lord. However, Albus ends up meeting with Ambratorix in a world of the artisan and finds that the eye could never bring Voldemort back to life, and there find all the truths about the artisian. In the same world, Albus uses the powers of the Eye of the Worlds to see and review their dead relatives, but he can only speak and observe them without being able to touch them. Upon returning to his world, Albus gets a present from Ambratorix, a magic galleon to help in times of pain and loneliness, and eventually Albus wins his duel against Yaxley.
Personality and traitsEdit
Unlike his rowdy, outgoing older brother, Albus seems to be a quiet, smart and thoughtful boy. He is marked by insecurity and seems to have an especially close relationship with his father. He sometimes doesn't understand why people stare at his father and finds it very interesting when they do.
ParentsEditAlbus has an especially close relationship with his parents. When he felt insecure about attending Hogwarts for the first time and worried he would be in Slytherin, his father comforted him, and his mother did likewise when his uncle Ron threatened to disinherit his cousin Rose if she wasn't sorted into Gryffindor.

Even though their parents were enemies, Albus and Scorpius became friends. It is an unstable friendship,
because you never know when one will disagree with each other and Scorpius will complain. But while Scorpius continues calling Albus "Potter", Albus considers him his best friend.
