Dolores Umbridge , the drafter of the anti-werewolf legislation. Werewolves are generally regarded with fear and disgust by wizarding society.
People seem to think even when in human form, the werewolf may pose a danger. It is not uncommon for people known to be werewolves to be shunned by society and discriminated against within the wizarding world. It also forced some, like Remus Lupin to take jobs far below their abilities.
After Lord Voldemort 's defeat in , the anti-werewolf legislation was most likely repealed by the new Minister, Kingsley Shacklebolt , in his effort to reform the Ministry of Magic , therefore weeding out corruption and not tolerating prejudice and discrimination. As a result of the anti-werewolf legislation, many werewolves suffer poverty.
Though in between he had to work at many jobs that are far below his level of abilities, resigning and moving on to another before his workmates notice his signs of lycanthropy. Lupin did this while living in a tumbledown, semi-derelict cottage in Yorkshire. He decided to resign from this position after his condition was exposed, by Severus Snape, as most parents would not want their children being around a werewolf, despite the safety precautions Remus and Albus Dumbledore took; Remus stated that it would have been impossible for him to even attend Hogwarts as a child if it were not for Dumbledore's kindness, as other headmasters would not want a werewolf in the school.
In a display of ignorance and arrogance, the Ministry expected werewolves would submit themselves to the department to sign various conducts and registries, which would also force the werewolves to promise to secure themselves from attacking others. No person would be prepared to walk into the Ministry to admit themselves as werewolves, thus showing the Ministry's lack of respect of werewolves' intelligence and dignity. Lyall Lupin , in particular, regarded werewolves as "soulless, evil, deserving nothing but death", until his own son was infected as a result of his prejudicial comment.
Given Kingsley Shacklebolt 's friendship with Remus Lupin and the furthering of Muggle-born and house-elf rights after , it is likely that the reforms of the Ministry under Minister for Magic Shacklebolt included less prejudicial treatment of werewolves. Monstrous Fenrir Greyback , the most savage werewolf of modern times. Due to the oppression and discrimination they face, some werewolves have come to hate the wizarding society, and as such have created their own society.
Under Fenrir Greyback's leadership, this society works to infect as many people as possible, especially children, with the goal of one day having enough strength to take control of the wizarding community.
The werewolves under Greyback's command served Lord Voldemort in the Second Wizarding War , believing that they would have a better life under his rule, though Remus Lupin spied on them for the Order of the Phoenix. Although only Greyback is explicitly mentioned as participating, werewolves under Greyback's command may have fought alongside the Death Eaters in the Battle of Hogwarts. It is unknown whether this was the only occurrence of the society, though it is implied that it was a new idea of Greyback's. Likewise, it is unknown whether all werewolves in the society were caught, or — as it was "underground" — some of the members evaded capture and continued their efforts.
The Ministry of Magic attempts to regulate werewolves and thus the relationship that exists between them and the Ministry is a rocky one. According to Newton Scamander , werewolves have been shunted between the Beast and Being divisions of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures for years. These regulations and services were ultimately a failure, as no one would be prepared to walk into the Ministry to admit themselves as werewolves, and thus none took the prescribed responsibilities of the Werewolf Code of Conduct.
Werewolves were required to sign a copy of the Code and promise to refrain from attacking and biting non-werewolves.
They were also supposed to lock themselves away during their wolf transformation periods. Dolores Umbridge herself incorrectly referred to werewolves as half-breeds , and has drafted an anti-werewolf legislation that made it almost impossible for werewolves to find a job. Even when the Ministry was taken over by the Death Eaters, relationship between the bureaucracy and werewolves remained strained. Death Eaters and their supremacist allies look down on werewolves, only using them as foot soldiers and to intimidate the rest of the wizarding world into submission. They did let the werewolves have more freedom of movement than before the takeover, but in no way showed they were equals; Greyback was not given the Dark Mark despite being permitted to wear the Death Eater's robe, and genuine Death Eaters looked down on him, while Greyback himself acknowledged that if he took Harry Potter to the Ministry, he would be left out of any credits for capturing him.
It was not until after the Second Wizarding War , in which Kingsley Shacklebolt took the position of Minster for Magic, did the Ministry's relationship with werewolves improve. Kingsley posthumously awarded his werewolf friend, Remus Lupin , the Order of Merlin , First Class, for his bravery in the war, the first time in history that a werewolf has been accorded this honour.
The example of his life and death played an important role in lifting the stigma on werewolves among the wizarding society. Wizarding children are educated about werewolves from a young age and information about them can be found in various Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry textbooks, for example The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection.
Werewolves have been mentioned several times in connection with Harry Potter's Defence Against the Dark Arts Professors , as they are dark creatures which are heavily studied throughout the class. Quirinus Quirrell had encountered them in Black Forest, and at one point discussed in class how to treat werewolf bites. Remus Lupin, of course, is a werewolf. Werewolves were discussed in a third year Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson, with an essay assigned by Severus Snape when he once substituted for Lupin, although werewolves were not due to be covered until the last chapter of the third-year DADA textbook.
There are many books containing information on werewolves, whether it is the main subject or just mentioned:.
