Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.

I'am not sure being fearless is going to be good for your health.

Albus Severus Potter is the son Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. He is the second oldest of his siblings, and the one that represents Harry the most and is the best friend of Scorpius Malfoy. He was named after the two Hogwarts headmasters Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. He is a minor character in Deathly Hallows and the main protagonist in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. In the movie series, Albus Dumbledore spoke the first line in the film series, and Albus Potter said the last line in the series. He's also the only of the children to inherit Lily's eyes, making him the child that looks exactly like his father. 

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, he was portrayed by Arthur Bowen, and played by Sam Clemmett and Theo Ancient in the original West End productions.


He is a tragic Hero, due to him being bullied by his larger brother, and even later on, neglected by his father. He is also bullied for being the only member of the Potter Family, being in Slytherin.

However, he is still a brave, and kind wizard, with many powers. He is also very intelligent.

Powers and abilities

Albus had a hard time praticing magic at Hogwarts. He lacked the natural gift of magic. Yet, he was still able of performing basic magic, like Unlocking Charms and Engorging Charms. In time he was also able at casting his father's signature spell, The Disarming Charm (Expelliarmus). According to Delphini, she sensed greatness and true talent within him. She told him that just like herself, he was probably just a late bloomer.

This suppression was probably caused by his trauma that he struggled with his father's legacy. This might have been lifted when Harry, Albus and all their friends defeated Delphini.
