Friends has entertained generations of comedy fans - you may have watched it when it first aired or soaked up every episode on Netflix. Perhaps you hadn't heard of Friends at all until the hugely anticipated cast reunion in 2021.

Marauders were group of four mischievous Hogwarts pals from Gryffindor house way back in the 1970s. They were Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black, and Harry's dad James Potter.

Apart from getting into scrapes and going on amazing adventures, they invented a special magical map.

The Marauders all had nicknames, too: Remus Lupin was named 'Moony', Peter Pettigrew was called 'Wormtail', Sirius Black was 'Padfoot', and James Potter was known as 'Prongs'.

Remus could transform into a werewolf, so his mates taught themselves how to turn into animals so they could join him. Sirius could change into a large black dog, Peter could make himself look like a rat, while Harry's dad had the ability to become a stag (all of which are important things to remember in the story)

Sure, turning into animals is pretty impressive, but so is the fact they created what is now known as a Marauder's Map. It could show you the layout of Hogwarts, as well as reveal where the secret corridors were as well as actual people. That's a bit more advanced than any GPS app and one that Harry relied on during his time at Hogwarts.

The Marauders' spirit and sense of adventure lived on through Harry and represent the important idea of friendship and loyalty.

This quiz you're about to take isn't a Harry Potter trivia quiz - although there's lots of those on – but this is a personality quiz, designed to reveal which Marauder you're most like. Maybe you've watched the movies and read the books and daydreamed about which one you're most like.

This quiz will cut out the guesswork and give you the answer. Think of it like a digital sorting hat!

Your nickname is Wormtail or Scabbers, and became a spy for Voldemort! Oh dear.

You're not exactly a fan of Peter Pettigrew, are you? Your claim to fame is being the only person to escape from Azkaban without any help, which is pretty cool. You can also turn into a dog, if you like.

You have a son, but we can't remember his name at the moment. It'll come back to us, we're sure...
