Yes but a portrait doesnt have a mind of hisown, its been said about this sort of thing when Sirus died, and harry talked to nick, and he was told about the portraits

A portrait is an image of the wizard and it definitely has a mind of it's own. Dumbledore talked regularly to the portraits in his office. And Nick never talked about portraits, he only talked about ghosts. What are you talking about?

The portrait would have the personality of the person though. I think it would have some of their memories as well. Kind of like an echo.

So any knowledge D might have had could possibly be passed on through the portrait - just no new ideas?

We don't really know yet. Phineus Nigellus seems to know all about his time at Hogwarts. He knows about the family line and such, but we don't know the full limits of the portraits. They did talk with Dumbledore and were sworn to serve the headmaster. I for one think that the portrait Dumbledore will be able to pass on valueable tips to Harry. One wonders where else there will be portraits of such a famous wizard.

AND welcome to the forum Moses.

I've got a feeling the portrait will have the memory of the wizard up until the point the portrait was made... or the last time the portraitee enfused themselves onto the portrait.

It's just a theory, and is probably hogswash, but we'll see

I like the theory. I do wonder if a portrait will show up of him in Grimmauld Place. The Order could use some direction.

I'm sure Harry himself, when he moves into Grimmauld Place, will be sure to put a portrait up.

I hope he can get rid of Mrs Black though *chills*

I say remove the wall her portrait is on... I'm sure Harry could make that place home when this is all over

I'm thinking Grimmauld Place will be the first place Harry goes when he turns 17. He'll be of age, the place is safe, and he can plan his "quest" from there.

but he couldn't bear to think of the place. That is the place where Sirius was so unhappy. I think it has to be the place to go. Like it or not, he will need the order to help him. They can gather information and run interference with the death eaters.

Agreed, also even if there isn't a portait of Dumbledore at the order, we do know for a fact that there is one of Phineus Nigellus. We also know that portraits can communicate with each other, and seeing as Dumbledore and Phineus are in the same office, it shouldn't be too hard to convey information. We have yet to see how much help Phineus will bring, JKR seemed to specifically bring him into conversations when Harry was in Dumbledore's office. He stood out a lot more than the other portraits, so I think he will have some role to play in the 7th book.

I completely agree! What a great observation. But then with a second painting at number 12, Dumbledore would be able to attend Order meetings still, so who knows.

This makes me very curious about what other roles Phineus might play in the final book.
