Peter Pettigrew, sometimes referred to as Wormtail, is a major antagonist of the Harry Potter book and film series, appearing as the hidden main antagonist of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the tertiary antagonist of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a senary antagonist of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and a quinary antagonist of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

Originally, he was a very close friend to Harry Potter's father, James Potter, but did subsequently join the Death-Eaters and betrayed James and Lilly Potter, and instead of taking the punishment himself, he accused Sirius Black for the crime. During Ron Weasley's life, Peter Pettigrew transformed himself into a rat called Scabers to keep a close eye on Harry, all for the sole purpose of later bringing Harry to Voldemort. He is not the best magician, as his major weapons is treachery and cowardice.
