J.K. Rowling, author of the wildly popular Harry Potter series, took to Twitter on May 2 apologize to fans for the fate of Remus Lupin, a beloved character who dies at the end of the series.

“Once again, it’s the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts so, as promised, I shall apologise for a death. This year: Remus Lupin,” Rowling wrote to her legions of fans. “Arthur [Weasley] lived, so Lupin had to die. I’m sorry. I didn’t enjoy doing it.”

Rowling went on to say that she agonized over the decision, and still regrets having to end Lupin’s life.

“The only time my editor ever saw me cry was over the fate of [his son] Teddy,” Rowling added.
