|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character
Anthony Goldstein is a student in Ravenclaw house. He is in Harry's year.
Role in the Books edit
During the first D.A. meeting in the Room of Requirement, Anthony is paired with Zacharias Smith for the disarming charm, but Fred and George Weasley keep disarming Zacharias behind his back before Anthony can do it.
When Hermione Granger is called for her Charms practical O.W.L. exam, Anthony is one of three students sent in with her, the others being Goyle and Daphne Greengrass.
Anthony is also one of the six members of Dumbledore's Army who see Draco Malfoy attempting to jinx Harry on the Hogwarts Express, and promptly return fire, leaving Draco, Crabbe, and Goyle looking like gigantic slugs squeezed into Hogwarts robes.
Anthony Goldstein is one of the members of Dumbledore's Army who have ended up in the Room of Requirement when the school itself became too hostile for them. While he apparently takes part in the Battle of Hogwarts, little is actually known of his role there.
Relationships with Other Characters edit
From his name, we suspect that Anthony is Jewish, which makes him the only Jewish student at Hogwarts. JK Rowling confirmed this in an after-publication interview in late 2014.
