Marauder's Map - Harry Potter Posters - Harry Potter gifts - Harry Potter - Potterheads - Woodgeek Store
A blank parchment paper that turns into a map with the words 'I solemnly swear that I am up to no good'. Somethings are only possible in the magical world of Harry Potter! Navigate the corridors and secret passages of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry with the Marauder's Map. This magical map will not only show the whereabouts of a person but also every paranormal activity within the Hogwarts premises. Not even an Animagi (a human who can turn into an animal) or an Invisibility Cloak can fool the Marauder's Map.
Once the map is activated, it displays the names of the four creators - James Potter (Prongs), Sirius Black (Padfoot), Remus Lupin (Moony) and Peter Pettigrew (Wormtail)!

The Marauders shared a strong bond. On finding out that Remus Lupin goes through an excruciating transformation to become a werewolf (Lycan) every full moon, the quad secretly took on their Animagi form to contain him. James turned into a stag (Prongs), Sirius Black turned into a dog (Padfoot) and Peter into a rat (Wormtail). Their Animagus forms helped them explore the outside grounds and with James' Invisibility Cloak, they explored every nook and corner of Hogwarts. Using this knowledge, the four friends created the Marauder's Map to record all the secret passages, which helped them create mischief.

The Marauders were bold enough to put their Animagi names on the map even though it was illegal for Hogwarts students to perform unsupervised magic. The map is proof of their advanced magical ability. The Marauder's Map is enchanted with 'Homonculous Charm' spell to track the movements and 'Forever Repel' spell for Snape, James' arch-nemesis.

The map only reveals itself when you tap on it gently with your wand and say "I solemnly swear that I am up for no good". Once you're done using it, you tap on it again and say " Mischief Managed" and it turns into a blank parchment paper. In their last year of school, it was sequestered by Argus Filch, the caretaker of Hogwarts, probably after a tip-off from Snape. Filch wandered the corridors and passages of Hogwarts with his cat Mrs. Morris to catch students breaking rules.

Years later, the map was stolen by the Weasley twins, Fred and George, the older brothers of Ron, who was Harry's best friend. They reckoned that Harry needed the map to find Voldemort, who was living and plotting within the castle. So they unknowingly passed on the map to one of the Marauder's sons, Harry Potter.

Fun Facts about Marauder's Map
  1. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs all die in the reverse order of how their names are mentioned on the map and their deaths were connected as well.
  2. The Marauder's Animagi forms were the reflection of their very own personalities. Remus' Animagus form was a werewolf and he was a loyal friend to James and a guardian to Harry and also his friends. Sirius too was loyal, brave and faithful like a dog, James was the leader and as royal as a stag. Peter, like a rat, was sneaky, impure and unfaithful. He was also unclean.
  3. Peter Pettigrew was almost a Slytherin and not Gryffindor. The Sorting Hat thought he was more of a Slytherin than a Gryffindor in him. By keeping Peter in Gryffindor, he unintentionally changed the course of history by bonding him to Remus, Sirius, and James.
  4. James was born to a rich wizard and a witch who pampered him since he was their only child. It also made him arrogant and boastful, but he was a good person from within.
  5. Remus was bitten by a werewolf Greyback turning him into a werewolf.
  6. Peter worshipped James and Sirius and always participated in bullying Snape with them.
