contexts in which jkr introduces her readers to remus:

  • book 3: in his first scene he conjures a patronus and passes around chocolate
  • book 3: in his second scene he teaches them all a spell focused in overcoming fears with laughter
  • book 5: in his first scene he rescues harry from an abusive household, and smiles widely at harry while he does it
  • book 6: in his first scene he is handed a large slice of cake
  • book 6: in his second scene everyone is sitting around a fire at christmas drinking eggnog
  • book 7: when he rolls up to The Squad in grimmauld place he passes around butterbeers and hermione lights a fire in the fireplace

rowling does this thing where even if remus is having The Literal Worst Time he is almost always introduced in the context of warmth and light and comfort, which he more often than not is directly providing to others
