Have any of you guys EVER study history?  Remember the Nazi and the Holcaust? 

 In Germany itself, the Ahnenpass and Nuremberg Laws classified people as Jews if they descended from three or four Jewish grandparents. A person with one or two Jewish grandparents was a Mischling, a crossbreed, of “mixed blood”. One could not become a non-Jew in the eyes of the government by becoming non-practicing, marrying outside the religion, or converting to Christianity. Only people with at least two of their grandparents of “German blood” could be German citizens

See how its kind of works with Deatheaters/non-Deatheaters kind of thing?    Same idea. 

Here is from the author’s  website: 

The expressions ‘pure-blood’, ‘half-blood’ and ‘Muggle-born’ have been coined by people to whom these distinctions matter, and express their originators’ prejudices. As far as somebody like Lucius Malfoy is concerned, for instance, a Muggle-born is as ‘bad’ as a Muggle. Therefore Harry would be considered only ‘half’ wizard, because of his mother’s grandparents.

If you think this is far-fetched, look at some of the real charts the Nazis used to show what constituted ‘Aryan’ or ‘Jewish’ blood. I saw one in the Holocaust Museum in Washington when I had already devised the ‘pure-blood’, ‘half-blood’ and ‘Muggle-born’ definitions, and was chilled to see that the Nazis used precisely the same warped logic as the Death Eaters. A single Jewish grandparent ‘polluted’ the blood, according to their propaganda.

Since Lilly’s parents are muggles, who parents are Muggles that what makes Harry “tained” and  a “half blood”.

Muggles=people with zero magic ablilty (but could have a forgotten witch/wizard in the family)

Muggle+Muggle=Muggle-born (Lilly, Hermione)


Muggle-born witch/wizard+full witch/wizard=half-blood

pure-blood=is not “tainted” with half-bloods, muggles, or Muggle-borns (or “blood traiters” *) for centuries

*blood traitors are people who interact with people who aren’t “pure” that is/are: half-bloods, Muggles, Muggle-borns and Half-breeds.

Example 1 of Half-bloods number  (people who are half-bloods because of a Muggle dad but witch mother):


Dean (but couldn’t prove it in book 7)



Example 2 of half-bloods (Muggle-born mom/dad and non-muggle-born dad/mom)

Tonks (Muggle-born dad)

Harry (Muggle-born mom)

Question is this person a half-blood

Dumbledore’s family?




Colin (and Denis-his brother)
