Aurors are those who catch dark wizards. They are major characters in the J K Rowlings' Harry Potter series. They are the good witches and wizards who are the main force blocking You-Know-Who's control of the wizard world.
The Order of the Phoenix is a secret society of Aurors with Professor Albus Dumbledore as their leader. These Aurors fought against You-Know-Who (Lord Voldemort) the last time. They believe, while other witches and wizards do not, that Lord Voldemort has returned. They are determined that he will not gain full power.
Ron Weasley and Harry Potter declare their career choice in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. They want to be Aurors. Harry continues to want to be an Auror in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Neville Longbottom's parents, Frank and Alice, were great Aurors. They were members of the Order of the Phoenix during the First War. They lost their minds trying to destroy Lord Voldemort. They are now patients in St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.
This is a partial list of Aurors in the Harry Potter books. Although J K Rowlings wrote the witches and wizards as the good guys they are a motley crew with distinct personalities. One is an Azkaban escapee who is hiding from the Ministry of Magic. There is another Auror who is a petty criminal. A werewolf is even a member of the group. J K Rowlings' characters keep the Harry Potter fiction series interesting for children eight-years-old and older.
