When Fred and George Weasley took the Marauder’s Map from Mr. Filtch, they were able to escape any possible run-ins with trouble. When Harry Potter inherited it, he learned a deep history about the people who created it. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs were the nicknames of the wizards who crafted the mischievous and awesome Marauder’s Map. In the Harry Potter series, we only see what the Marauders looked like as adults. In these illustrations Pottermore recently released, we get a glimpse of what they might have looked like as young wizards.
