The son and only child of Draco Malfoy and Astoria Malfoy (née Greengrass). If popular consensus is to be believed, Scorpius may actually be the son of ''Voldemort''. Either way, his isolated upbringing left him socially awkward and his only friend at Hogwarts is Albus Potter, who sucks Scorpius into a dangerous adventure.

If popular consensus is to be believed, Scorpius may actually be the son of ''Voldemort''.''Voldemort''; there have been ''many'' rumours in the Wizarding World (thank you very much, Rita!) but this is ''THE'' most stupid rumour to have ever existed ever as Scorpius is ''identical'' to his father in appearance . Either way, his isolated upbringing left him socially awkward and his only friend at Hogwarts is Albus Potter, who sucks Scorpius into a dangerous adventure.

** In the series proper, while Gryffindor is highly friendly to other members of the house, it seems to have given up on the possibility of Slytherins being good. Even after meeting a good Slytherin like Horace Slughorn, Harry bristles as soon as he finds out he's the former Head of Slytherin House, even if he was friends with his mother. He and Ron scoff at the idea of "being matey with the Slytherins".

* HeroicResolve: Lots of it, but as he's out of focus we only get hints of it. A notable instance is during Order Of The Phoenix, where it's greatly implied that his increasing devotion (and thus increasing skill) to Dumbledore's Army is tied to a sense of resolve after the person who tortured his parents had escaped from prison.
** Even earlier, in the first book, when he tries to stop The Trio from breaking the rules by leaving their dorm late at night. He didn't succeed, but, given that this was long before he TookALevelInBadass, it's still pretty impressive and recognized as such by Dumbledore.
