Harry Potter 10 Order Of The Phoenix Members Only Book Fans Know

Before Harry Potter was born, the Order of the Phoenix took up the fight against Lord Voldemort during the villain’s first spell in power. They disbanded after the Dark Lord’s fall, but reunited after his restoration to power in Goblet of Fire, eventually playing a key role in his defeat in Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Characters such as Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, Alastor Moody, Nymphadora Tonks and Kingsley Shacklebolt were all starring members – and excellently realized from the books to the big screen.

But there were also some members of the Order of the Phoenix that didn’t feature at all. Here are 10 members that didn’t appear in the movies (or didn’t get their due as members of the Order).

10 Arabella Figg

Sure, Arabella Figg is revealed to be a squib during the fifth movie. She’s Harry’s erratic neighbor, who actually debuts in The Sorcerer’s Stone novel – with the Boy Who Lived forced to endure afternoons of eating stale cake and looking at cats while his family have a fun day out.

However, those who have seen the films don’t know the full extent of her secret identity. Arabella is actually given the task right from the get-go and sticks to it well until the Dementors come swooping in, having been sent by the vile Dolores Umbridge. It’s there she helps Harry and Dudley Dursley to get away and back to the (relative) sanctuary of 4 Privet Drive.

9 Dedalus Diggle

The Sorcerer’s Stone movie has a moment where Harry is ogled after stepping into the Leaky Cauldron with Rubeus Hagrid as he ventures towards Diagon Alley. Among the many people who greet him is Dedalus Diggle, who shakes his hand with great enthusiasm.

But Diggle doesn’t feature again, unlike in the novels. He helps escort the Dursleys away from their home for the final time and annoys Vernon by greeting the nasty family as ‘Harry Potter’s relatives’. The wizard thought he could be best friends with the trio – but that was never destined to happen.

8 Hestia Jones

Diggle isn’t alone when it comes to taking the Dursleys away for the final time, with Hestia Jones also joining him on the important mission. She’s a part of the Order too and is most displeased at their lack of care towards their relative – sticking up for Harry before he tells her to leave things be.

However, before the unsavory incident, she also signs up to escort him to 12 Grimmauld Place so he can be reunited with the likes of Ron, Hermione and Sirius. Hestia wasn’t cast and, therefore, only book fans know about her existence.

7 Gideon and Fabian Prewett

Gideon and Fabian Prewett aren’t explicitly named during the Order of the Phoenix movie, but they can be briefly glimpsed when Harry is shown an old picture by Sirius shortly before his return to Hogwarts. Yet only those who know the original story inside out will know they’re the siblings of Molly Weasley.

They were brutally murdered by Antonin Dolohov and supposedly died like heroes. It explains why she tries to prevent Harry, Ron and Hermione from leaving during the Deathly Hallows book. Molly can’t stand the thought of losing another loved one to the war, but that still unfortunately happens, with Fred perishing in the final battle against Voldemort.

6 Caradoc Dearborn

It’s actually Alastor Moody who shows Harry the photograph of the original Order in the books, with the auror doing it to lift his spirits after Ron and Hermione are made prefects. He fails though, especially when he mentions the death of Caradoc Dearborn. Caradoc was a member whose body was never found.

This wasn’t unusual, with the same thing happening following Moody’s own disappearance in the Deathly Hallows. Harry does see his famous blue eye again, though, when it’s stuck in Dolores Umbridge’s door at the Ministry of Magic. Rightfully, he then takes it back.

5 Benjy Fenwick

It’s certainly not a cheery topic, but Benjy Fenwick is another member of the team whose body was never recovered. Well, not his full body at least. Moody reveals they only found bits of him, which must of made things even worse for those who knew him.

Not much is known about his early life but he must have been pretty powerful to be part of the group. It’s unfortunate he was another casualty of Voldemort’s attack on the wizarding world and Moody seems genuinely moved by his fate.

4 Dorcas Meadowes

Lord Voldemort only personally killed those who he deemed a threat (for the most part at least) – with the exception of Lily and James Potter, who he brutally executes for stopping his charge towards Harry. That meant the Death Eaters often carried out his bidding, with only the Half-Blood Prince book revealing Igor Karkaroff, who appears in the Goblet of Fire movie, was taken out in this fashion.

Voldemort supposedly killed Dorcas Meadows himself, however, which means she must have really touched a nerve. He also does this to Ministry of Magic worker Amelia Bones, who sticks up for Harry at his trial in the fifth entry in the series.

3 Emmeline Vance

The Half-Blood Prince movie begins differently to the book. In the source material, it opens with the Muggle Prime Minister being visited by Cornelius Fudge, who has only recently lost his job as Minister of Magic following his failure to listen to Harry about Lord Voldemort’s return. The pair talk about the recent spate of horrible incidents – which is when Emmeline Vance’s name crops up.

Emmeline’s death is actually reported by the Muggle governing figurehead, rather than the wizarding equivalent. The chapter delves into his shock at finding about the existence of witches and wizards, while ending with an introduction to Rufus Scrimgeour. He feels somewhat sorry for Fudge, always considering him to be a nice enough guy. Given his mass failings, however, it’s not exactly a surprise he’s relieved of his duties.

2 Sturgis Podmore

Sturgis Podmore is a character who managed to survive the original war and, once again, returned for the second. He was part of the Advance Guard that took Harry to 12 Grimmauld Place and was also considered reliable enough to watch The Prophecy at the Department of Mysteries. Unfortunately for him, that’s when he’s put under the Imperius Curse by Death Eaters.

They try to get him to obtain the object instead, but he’s caught and sentenced to six months in Azkaban as a result. Percy informs Harry of this in a rude letter, saying: “Sturgis Podmore, 38, of number two, Laburnum Gardens, Clapham, has appeared in front of the Wizengamot charged with trespass and attempted robbery at the Ministry of Magic on 31st August.”

1 Charlie Weasley

Out of all the omitted Order characters, Charlie Weasley deserved his moment in the films more than anyone. He doesn’t appear at all in the big screen versions of JK Rowling’s movies but’s around in the novels. The second-oldest member of Arthur and Molly’s children, he does a range of things from helping Harry with Norbert in Sorcerer’s Stone to tipping him off about dragons for the Triwizard Tournament in the Goblet of Fire.

Charlie also takes part in the Battle of Hogwarts, sprinting alongside former teacher Horace Slughorn, forcing Death Eaters away from the castle. Ultimately he was edited out, which isn’t a total surprise given how much went down.
