Fred and George are the youngest of Ron Weasley's older brothers. They are Gryffindors and both play on their house's Quidditch team. Even though they're only a few years ahead of Ron and Harry, they're already legendary at Hogwarts for their mischievous pranks. Their first targets are their other brothers and their friends, but really, they're happy to play jokes on just about anybody. Their idea of a get-well-soon present to Harry is a toilet seat.
