Nymphadora Tonks was the only child of Edward "Ted" Tonks and Andromeda Tonks (Black). She began her wizarding studies at Hogwarts in 1984 and was sorted into Hufflepuff House. Tonks left school in 1991 and undertook training as an Auror for the Ministry of Magic. One year after qualifiying as an Auror, Tonks joined the Order of the Phoenix and began to work undercover in the Ministry. She was assigned the job of protecting the Department of Mysteries and this is where she first met Remus Lupin, the love of her life.

Despite being extremely clumsy, Tonks was extremely gifted in the art of disguise due to her metameorphic abilities. Her appearance often changed depending on her mood and it was not uncommon to see Tonks sporting bright purple, pink or even red hair. After witnessing the death of her cousin, Sirius Black, her appearance underwent many changes. Tonks chose to don her natural mousy brown hair colour and even Harry noticed how much thinner and more pale she had become. It is believed that both the grief of losing Sirius and Remus's rejection of her advances is what caused her patronus to change form from a jack rabbit to a shaggy appearing wolf.

Despite rejecting Tonk's advances numerous times due to the fact that he was older and potentially dangerous to her because he was a werewolf; Remus reciprocated her feelings and they eventually became a couple. They were married via small ceremony in 1997, just prior to the The Order's Seven Potters operation. Tonks also became pregnant around this time. In Harry's rescue mission, Tonks was paired with a Polyjuiced Ron Weasley and they were chased by her own aunty, the notorious Bellatrix Lestrange.

In April 1998, admist all the chaos of the second Wizarding World War, Tonks and Remus welcomed their son into the world - Edward "Teddy" Lupin. Unfortunately, this happiness of this family was short-lived and on May 2nd, 1998, both Tonks and Remus perished in the Battle of Hogwarts. Bellatrix Lestrange was responsible for Tonk's murder and Molly Weasley certainly got revenge on her.

We will never forget the Dudley-inspired pig nose, the beak, the button mushroom nose or the bubblegum pink hair that Tonks proudly wore. She was a great entertainer, a talented witch, a loyal friend and a true Hufflepuff. Whenever I hear name "Nymphadora" I immediately recall one of Tonk's most famous lines: "Don't call me Nymphadora."

I believe that Tonks was one of the greatest examples of a Hufflepuff that defied all of the standards. She didn't care what other people thought, and she cared for those she loved. She died a hero, and her memory will live on forever.

One of the main reasons why I loved Tonks was because she was a Hufflepuff - so much of a badger. She was strong-willed and brave. Even though Prof Sprout might say otherwise, Tonks is very much of a Huffie as any other Huffie. And that is what makes me proud.

When I read books, I practically never cry for characters deaths. But there were two that got me really shocked: Dumbledores and Tonks.
Tonks was the only character I could see myself in. She and I have so much alike and she's a real kick-ass. If someone deserved to survive all the horror, it was her. I was so sad when I read (and saw) that she had died during the Battle for Hogwarts. She died a loyal hero, someone to look up to.

I was super sad when reading Fred's death in the book, but the way that it just glossed over the death of Remus and Tonks left me completely shattered! Tonks was an inspiring character and I also think that Natalie Tena did her justice in the movies. RIP Tonks! ❤

Tonks, you are and always will be my favourite character in the Potterverse. Your quirky, sassy personality and your heart of gold won me over the moment I read about you. <3 Your spirit will never die. <3

Tonks,

You have been my inspiration for so many years now. Patient, kind, loyal and above all yourself. I love your spirit and your willfullness and that you refuse to conform to the "standards" around you. My hair will ever remain colourful because of you. Thannk you for being an amazing example of why I love being a hufflepuff.

I was very sad when Tonks died, leaving a baby behind. She was a truly amazing person and should have been able to raise her son. Tonks, we miss you!

Tonks You were one of my all time favorite characters. She was funny, quirky, kind patient and loving. Remus was a perfect match for you. I wish you hadn't died so soon. You would have raised your son beautifully. You made me proud to (really be a Hufflepuff)

RIP Tonks

I love Tonks so much. She and Remus are no doubt my favorite characters. There are so many reasons behind this is but mostly because she could of changed her appearance to anything but she decided to have her awesome spiky pink hair and go undercover as dark wizards to help the Order and, if most wonderful, changed her face to have a pig nose or a duck beak to make people laugh in most likely the worst time of their lives.

Rest in peace, Tonks. I promise I'll never refer to you as "Nymphadora".

Tonks is one of my favorite characters and guess what? We both belong to the same house - Hufflepuff.
She was quirky and the light in the darkest of times. Her clumsiness was endearing. And her very presence would cheer you up.

I'll end by saying: Wotcher, Tonks?

Thanks Tonks. Thanks for showing people that Hufflepuffs can be great, that women can stand up for themselves, that you can always make a difference. Teddy is in good hands, Harry and Ginny and your mother switch off handling him. You're missed by me, by everybody. Thanks for showing me that I can do great things even when people stereotype me. I miss you

I was sad when Tonks gave up her Metamorphmagus whims...she was so subdued as she and Remus worked on sorting out their marriage and Remus' guilt at being a werewolf and bringing Teddy into the world. I could not imagine two more loving parents than Tonks and Remus...I never quite forgave JKR for taking them from us at the Battle of Hogwarts...

Although I sympathized with Tonks wanting to help fight with Remus, she should have stayed home to care for her baby. I'm my opinion, anyway. Poor Teddy grew up without any parents.

Tonks and Lupin were my favorite characters, but Tonks was my most favorite. I loved her pink hair and her clumsiness and her bubble-gum pink hair. She showed the world that Hufflepuffs rock! I cried for a day when I read that she died. But at least Teddy is still alive and well with Andromeda. I will miss her bubblegum pink hair, her smile, her sense of humor.
