We all have battle scars, Noah. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and build a brace for yours.
— Lucky to Noah

James Aries Peltier (b. 6 October), most commonly known as Lucky Peltier, is a half-blood and part-Veela wizard, the only chil of Aries and Dorea Peltier (née Castro). As their jobs often required them to work abroad, Lucky was usually left in the care of his paternal grandparents, with whom he lived with in England. He was incredibly close to them both, especially his grandfather, whose death left him devastated.    

Lucky began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the usual age of eleven and was Sorted into Gryffindor House for his bravery and devotion. He instantly became best friends with Noah Hilliard, with the two largely known for being unpopular and awkward. Spurred on by his grandfather's death in his second year, Lucky tried out for the Gryffindor Quidditch team as a Keeper. He was initially rejected, but after trying out again the next year, his skills had vastly improved to the extent that he was considered his team's secret weapon. He was present for Gryffindor winning three Quidditch Cups and became Captain during his final year at Hogwarts.

Later life

Physical description

Personality and traits

"I think anyone should be able to do whatever they want as long as they're not hurting people."
—James and his views on freedom
Grady Jorkins: "How did you get so good at Quidditch? Is it herbs? Where are you getting your gear from, Peltier?"
James: "My nan does all the school shopping?"
— James getting confused

Magical abilities and skills

"Bludgers are always going to keep flying at you, and at one point you're probably going to fall off your broom and break both arms. Quidditch is a nasty sport, but you have to get back up. You have to show them you can get back up. Leaders don't run."
—James giving Elliot advice and demonstrating his leadership qualities in Quidditch





Noah: Is this a Gryffindor thing?
Lucky: No. It's a brain thing.

Noah: Notice how much we keep saying "sorry" to each other.
Lucky: Sorry.

Elliot: Nothing's going to work. No plan. Nothing.
Lucky: The plan is to get you better. That's the plan I'm going with.

Noah: [about Elliot] You know, I bet you still think there's something about him that can be saved.
Lucky: Maybe.

Lucky: People should be saving lives, not ending them.

Lucky: Nothing like a little pain to remind you you're alive.

Ember: I was scared, and I thought... maybe with enough time, then maybe someone like you can help me. Help me do something about it.
Lucky: You give me the time, and I'll do something. I promise I will.

Ember: I mean, it's almost too—
Lucky: No! Don't say too easy! People say too easy and bad things happen.

Lucky: The water... it's bubbling. Sort of like that Armadillo Bile Mixture from Potions.
Noah: Revising for N.E.W.Ts?
Lucky: Yep.
Noah: Cool.

Professor Mortan: Resolutions are only good if you stay level with them, James.
Lucky: I will stay level. I promise I won't be like that Armadillo Bile Mixture.

Noah: What did you tell him?
Lucky: That we're part of a Muggle gaming community that battles mythical creatures.
Noah: I am part of a Muggle gaming community that battles mythical creatures.
Lucky: Oh. Oh. Great.

Lucky: Nobody trusts anyone. That's the problem!

Lucky: [about Maisie] There are probably thousands of other more suitable men she should be with instead, but I am still seventy-two percent sure that she loves me.

Elliot: How do we usually get out of these messes?
Lucky: We don’t, we make even bigger messes that cancel out the first one!

Noah: Was he, did he look like an animagus? Was he, you know, wolfy? Any hair on his body aside from that stupid comb over?
Lucky: No, but I can ask him to comb over and we can check again.
[Lucky starts laughing. Noah looks confused]


  • Lucky's Amortentia was freshly mown grass, the smell of a new broomstick handle, and the smoking smell of fireworks. The fireworks were something he had come to associate with Maisie Thorn, after she was impressed with his ploy to set them off during their fourth year.
