- "Why yes, I know Remus. He's one of my best Aurors. Quite charming; has quite the hankering for chocolate I do believe. Without him I doubt I would have kept my sanity during the war; good-natured, kind, always finds a way to cheer you up."
- —Amelia Bones talking about Remus.
Remus and Sarah met during Severus Snape's lycanthropy trials, the latter being worried that the cure wouldn't work, prompting the former to comfort her. After the success of the experiment and the curing of their lycanthropy, Remus and Sarah began hanging out during the summer.
Remus was always very close to his son Edward, being his and Sarah's only child, quite simply a miracle child after multiple miscarriages. After a successful birth, Remus had been overjoyed, and gave his son as much love as he possibly could, even if he was a little over-protective of him.
- "He was there for me when no one else was."
- —Remus talking to his goddaughter Rosemary Snape about her father.
Remus was chosen as Rosemary Snape's godfather almost immediately after Lily asked Severus who should take the position. Severus immediately said "we both know that question is a formality, it will be Remus".
