Nymphadora Tonks, aged 25, was killed by the hands of her own aunt Bellatrix Lestrange, who made good on her vow to murder family members who sided with Harry Potter. Tonks, wife of wizard Remus Lupin, rushed to the Battle of Hogwarts to join her husband, but was killed in a duel. She is survived by her son Teddy Remus Lupin, mother Andromeda Tonks and extended relatives of the Malfoy/Black clan. (Photo: Warner Bros.)
