Albus Severus "Al" Potter (b. c. 2006) was a half-blood wizard, and the second son of Harry and Ginny Potter (née Weasley). Albus is the middle of three children, born at least a year after his older brother, James, and two years before his younger sister Lily. He was named in honour of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape.
In September 2017, Albus left for his first year at Hogwarts, along with his cousin, Rose Weasley, and Scorpius Malfoy. Before boarding the Hogwarts Express, Albus confided to his father (Harry) that he feared he might be sorted into Slytherin. In response, his father told him that the bravest man he ever knew — Severus Snape, whom Albus was named after — had been a Slytherin. Harry also assured his son that, if he was sorted into Slytherin, that the house would have gained a great student and that he and Ginny would think no less of him for it. Harry also told Albus that if he preferred Gryffindor, then the Sorting Hat would take this choice into account, as it had in his case (something Harry never told any of his other children). At this, Albus' face was described as being "in wonder."
Once at Hogwarts, Albus was sorted into Slytherin House (to the surprise of many). He later attained the position of Seeker on the Slytherin Quidditch Team.
Much to James' dismay, he also befriended other Slytherins such as Tabitha Corsica.
Albus spent his next year of wizard school at Alma Aleron, along with the rest of his family. It was there he resided in the Werewolf House fraternity, eventually helping Professor Jackson discover a dirty secret his house peers had been hiding.
Having spent many years helping James on his adventures, Albus would go on to secretly help Petra Morganstern in her plan to cross to the alternate dimension.
Personality and traits
Unlike his rowdy, outgoing brother, Albus seems to be a quiet, smart and thoughtful boy. He is marked by insecurity and seems to have an especially close relationship with his father. He sometimes doesn't understand why people stare at his father and finds it very interesting when they do.
Albus has an especially close relationship with his parents. When he felt insecure about attending Hogwarts for the first time and worried he would be in Slytherin, his father comforted him, and his mother did likewise when his uncle Ron threatened to disinherit his cousin Rose if she wasn't sorted into Gryffindor house.

His older brother, James seems to enjoy teasing Albus. Though the boys are close in age, James has a more outgoing personality, while Albus is quiet, and more like his younger sister. All three siblings share the opinion that Ted Lupin would make a great addition to the family if he 'eventually married Victoire Weasley.
Albus and his cousin Rose Weasley are close in age and in the same year at Hogwarts. Just like Lily and Hugo, they seem to be quite close, and shared worry over where they would be sorted. When Rose arrived to head off to her first year at Hogwarts, Albus was "immensely relieved" to see her as Rose beamed at him.
Albus and Scorpius developed an unstable friendship. While Scorpius continues giving snide remarks and calling Albus "Potter," Albus considers him one of his best friends.
