Unlike Newt Scamander and whoever has got a second class, Remus Lupin has rewarded the Order of Merlin, First class. Lupin’s involvement and actions during the Battle of Hogwarts and also his presence with the Order of the Phoenix have made a record.
Remus being a werewolf had many complications in taking a teaching job at Hogwarts. Apart from his unchangeable werewolf side, there were other factors outside of probable backlash for wizards and witches. Deep down Lupin was well aware that he had no intention to hurt any students and that led him to consider this job. However, Albus Dumbledore made a deal to supply the wolfsbane potion to get Remus to agree to fit this job.
