Peter Pettigrew is a British wizard who is friends with James and Lily Potter, Remus Lupin (canon), and Sirius Black (canon). He is a metamorphagus (canon).

The friends study at Hogwarts. When they're young, Pettigrew and Sirius Black are lovers for a time.[1]

During the Wizarding War, Pettigrew works for the Order of the Phoenix (canon). In 1981, after Black betrays the Potters and Voldemort kills them, Black confunds (canon) Pettigrew into taking his appearance and pretending to be him.[2] Pettigrew (as Black) is sent to Azkaban without a trial.

Pettigrew stays in Azkaban until 1992 when Harry Potter unknowingly kills Black among other Death Eaters and later understands what happened.
