Re: Remus John Lupin: Character Analysis

Granted, Snape initially thought this proved Lupin was working with Sirius (after all, he would have turned the map over to Dumbledore so they could catch Sirius otherwise) but after Snape found out the truth, I don't think he trusted Lupin's judgement for not handing over the map, and was willing to put the students at risk.

The one thing I never understood about Lupin was why he never gave Dumbledore that map.
Does the Map show the grounds as well? I've forgotten. If it did, could Lupin with the Map have seen Sirius on the grounds and still failed to report him? If it did, Snape would have connected the dots quickly, and that would have been a big thing against him as well.

What upsets me about Lupin, is that for 13 years he makes no contact with Harry and even in third year, he hardly mentions Harry's parents to him nor does he tell the starved for information orphan boy a few good things about his parents, not even when Harry tells him about what he hears when he is close to a dementor. This I found rather unforgivable.

The man who, in my opinion, won the war against Voldemort for Harry Potter and the Light! Severus Snape!
