The Order of the Phoenix is a secret organisation in the Harry Potter series of fiction books written by J. Before the Harry Potter series starts – when the character Lord Voldemort declared war on the wizarding world – Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and a highly upstanding and powerful citizen of the wizarding world, attempted to take control of the situation by founding the Order of the Phoenix.
Order members patrolled Hogwarts, the Wizarding school, on the night of Dumbledore's death in Half-Blood Prince, fighting the Death Eaters who managed to enter the castle.
In the series finale, attention turns to escorting the Death Eaters' main target, Harry Potter, from his summer home with the Dursleys to the Weasleys' Burrow.
Was scheduled to teach the post of Defence Against the Dark Arts in the fourth book. Killed by Voldemort as he accompanied Mundungus Fletcher (disguised as Harry Potter) to a safehouse.
His eye was later taken by the Death Eaters and recovered by Harry Potter. Bartender of The Hog's Head in Hogsmeade village and possibly a member of the revived Order.
Later in the novel, after Voldemort's takeover of the Ministry had succeeded, some Order members hosted "Potterwatch", a secret pirate radio programme providing news on the Wizarding World that Voldemort's regime did not want the general population to know.
