Peter Pettigrew was born around His mother was a witch. Hogwarts years "Hero-worshipped Black and Potter. Never quite in their league, talent-wise.
I was often rather sharp with him After a deliberation of more than five minutes making Pettigrew a Hatstallthe Hat decided to Sort him into Gryffindor. Pettigrew took part in James and Sirius ' bullying of Severus Snapea Slytherin boy in the same year as the Marauders, though it is unlikely he would have dared to bully Snape without his friends protecting him.
The Marauders in their Animagus forms Peter on the far right He, James, and Sirius soon discovered Remus Lupin to be a werewolfbut they did not abandon him as many other wizards would have.
