Stan Shunpike

September 16, 2007

When Harry is chased by the Death Eaters after leaving Privit Drive in Deathly Hallows, he discoveres that Stan Shunpike is one of the people following him. They conclude that he is imperiused, but is there anywhere in the story where this is in fact “proven”? Do we know that he isn’t a Death Eater?

    After Harry, Ron and Hermione were reunited and discovered by breaking the taboo attached to the name Voldemort, Ron claims to be Stan Shunpike. A man called Scabior replies: “Like ‘ell you are. We know Stan Shunpike, ‘e’s put a bit of work our way”.

    That could be interpreted both ways, but I think most likely he supported the Death Eaters, though not being one.

    A question for you: did Harry actually become an Auror like he wanted?

    So, you have got that far, have you?

    Well, I don’t know about him becoming an Auror. There isn’t anything specific in the book, and I haven’t checked it online. Rowling has made some comments on it, I believe…

    Alright. But why did the Dursleys just disappear from the plot? And why didn’t Harry get another lightning-shaped scar from the second killing curse he survived?

    I must say that I am a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of the Dursleys, especially at the end of the book…

    As to Harry not getting a scar. Well, the first time Voldemort was planning on making a Horcrux, which (I believe) was not his intention the last time. Secondly, his powers didn’t really work on Harry after Harry returned. Remember his cruciatus curse in the woods? Harry didn’t feel a thing.

    Harry DID become an auror. In one of JK Rowlings interviews she stated that Ron and Harry worked for the Auror Dept. revolutionizing the Defense against dark wizards right after the final battle with Voldy

    i am probably WAY late on this but thought since it wasnt answered i would anyways

    Harry did get bruised by the second killing curse. It felt like “an iron-clad punch.” So it did effect him physically, even if it didn’t leave a cut.
