Do the magical portraits, like the ones of the headmasters of Hogwarts, still have all their memories?

Hypothetical example: If Harry's parents were on a portrait, would they just love Harry and be good parents for him to have a nice talk with OR would they be able to tell him it wasn't Sirius who betrayed them but Peter Pettigrew?

    The answer on that question should cover your questions. We try not to have duplicate question and answer threads. Don't worry, though: that just means your question has wide appeal!

    Thanks, I looked for it but I couldn't find a duplicate because apparently I misspelled portraits.

  • @Adamant There's a whole pile of interrelated duplicates for this. Added a few more to the dupe banner.
