selection of his younger brother, Albus. He was Happy when his younger brother was sorted into Gryffindor,because he thought he would be a Slytherin, he would lose his little brother to Dark magic. During Christmas 2016 he received a letter from his parents reporting that they knew that it was he who stole the Marauder's Map, but there were no consequences since it was an important holiday. Later James was part of the Marauders 2.0 which aimed to spread chaos through Hogwarts.
