Sirius Black, the Prisoner of Azkaban

Sirius Black, the Prisoner of Azkaban
Rebellious, restless, charming and misunderstood. He was the godfather of Harry Potter and the best friend of James Potter: here is the story of Sirius Black, the Prisoner of Azkaban.

A stranger in the family

Son of Orion Black and Walburga Black (second cousins), Sirius has a younger brother named Regulus Arcturus Black. Young Sirius is unhappy for most of his childhood, does not find himself in the pureblood values ​​inculcated by his parents and feels like a stranger in that family of conservative and racist Thoroughbreds.

After his sorting out in Gryffindor, to emphasize the difference between himself and his family all sorted in Slytherin, Sirius hangs the red and gold banner in his room together with Muggle posters of girls in bikinis and motorcycles. The young man feels the need to underline the differences with his family, with whom relations are increasingly exacerbated.

The only one with whom Sirius seems to connect is also the one who will be disinherited and removed like him: his cousin Andromeda Black, who will marry Ted Tonks, a Muggle-born wizard.

And so at sixteen the boy runs away from the Potter and seeks to burn his effigy on the family tree in their home in Grimmauld Place.

The Hogwarts Years

Sirius befriends James Potter on the train to Hogwarts and the two will become inseparable throughout the school period and beyond. Both boys are sorted into Gryffindor and in their dormitory they also meet Remus Lupine and Peter Minus. The four immediately become familiar with each other, call themselves the Marauders, behave exactly as their group name announces and are very popular at school.
