Hares are leporids belonging to the genus Lepus. It is a possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[1]

History

The Patronus of Luna Lovegood was a hare; she first conjured it late in her fourth year during the lessons taken by Dumbledore's Army, taught by Harry Potter in 1996[2] and employed in the Battle of Hogwarts on 2 May, 1998.[3]

Nymphadora Tonks also had a hare patronus, specifically in the form of a Jack Rabbit,[4] until her growing love for Remus Lupin in 1996 resulted in it changing to a wolf.[5]

Behind the scenes

  • In the Danish version of Beedle the Bard's tales Babbitty Rabbitty was replaced by Hare Hop and as such her Animagus is a hare instead of a rabbit.
