This year marks the 18th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, and to pay her respects, "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling is apologizing for the death of everyone's favorite Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.
Fans first met Remus Lupin in book three when he saved Harry from a dementor. He perished in the Battle of Hogwarts in book seven, along with his wife, Nymphadora Tonks.
Apologizing for killing off characters has become something of a tradition for Rowling.
