Harry Potter

Who is Harry Potter? Describe him.

Harry Potter is a boy who believes he is an ordinary boy but he is really a wizard, a very famous won known by all wizards.. He’s really skinny with unruly black hair, green eyes with glasses, and a lightning shaped bolt scar on his forehead he received from Lord Voldemort the night he murdered his parents. Harry is a very kind-hearted and brave person who often puts himself in danger to save the people he cares about. He is very prevailing.



Describe Harry's Life with the Muggles.

Harry lives with his aunt Petunia, uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley who are muggles which means they do not have magic abilities. They have a very medieval approach to the wizarding world, it is very negative, calling Harry’s mother a freak. They distrust the magic so they treat Harry very badly. For many years his bedroom was a little cupboard under the stairs that he was locked up in. They fed him the bare minimum and tried to prevent him from learning his magical heritage.



Tell about Hogwarts.

Hogwarts is a magical, British boarding school located in Scotland at the Hogwarts Castle. The precise location of the school can never be found because it is Unplottable. Children with any magical abilities can be enrolled at birth but official acceptance is around 11 years old. Students are allowed to bring a pet such as an owl, toad, cat or rat. The school is divided into 4 houses that students are sorted into: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. The headmaster was Albus Dumbledore but is now Minerva McGonagall. The subjects taught at Hogwarts are Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, Charms, Astronomy, Care of Magical Creatures, Arithmancy, Study of Ancient Runes, History of Magic, Herbology, Alchemy, Muggle Studies, Apparition, and Flying.



Describe one of Harry and his friend's adventures.

One adventure that Harry and his two best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger went on was to find the seven Horcruxes and destroy them so Voldemort would be mortal, so they could kill him. A horcrux is an object in which a Dark wizard has split a piece of their soul into. The first horcrux was Tom Riddle’s diary which Harry destroyed with the basilisk fang in the chamber of secrets. The second horcrux was Nagini, Voldemort’s snake, who Neville Longbottom killed with the Sword of Gryffindor in the Battle of Hogwarts. The third Horcrux was the Gaunt Ring that was destroyed by Dumbledore with the Sword of Gryffindor. Next, the fourth was Hufflepuff’s Cup which was destroyed with a basilisk fang right before the Battle of Hogwarts. The fifth horcrux is the most interesting one because it was passed through Slytherin heritage. Ron destroyed it in the forest with the Sword of Gryffindor after it humiliated him with images of Hermione kissing Harry. The sixth horcrux was Ravenclaw’s Diadem, it was safely hidden in the Room of Requirement until Crabbe’s spell backfired and it was destroyed by FiendFyre. The seventh and final horcrux was Harry Potter himself, when Voldemort killed his parents in front of him and nearly killed Harry himself it made Harry a horcrux connected to Voldemort's mind and soul through his scar. The horcrux was ultimately destroyed in Harry when Voldemort hit him with the Avada Kedavra curse in the Forbidden Forest and Harry survived. This adventure was the most important because it helped Harry to defeat his biggest threat.



Describe your favorite Harry Potter character(s).

My two favorite characters are Draco Malfoy and Albus Dumbledore. Draco is one of my favorites because of his character development and everything he went through. In the beginning of the series he was a pureblood, little snob who thought he was better than everyone else. Throughout the series as his parents come back under Voldemort’s reign, Draco is set upon to do a series of tasks that he ultimately cannot complete like killing Dumbledore. His will was basically broken due to how he was forced to commit awful acts as a Death Eater. At the end of the series he is somewhat respectful to Harry and that is a major change. Dumbledore is one of my favorite characters because he was literally the most powerful wizard in the entire series, even Voldemort feared him. He defeated Grindelwald and possessed all three objects of the Deathly Hallows. He founded the Order of the Phoenix and many other things. He never let things or judgment get in his way. He did what he thought was right. My favorite thing about Dumbledore is how eccentric he is and his random, but powerful quotes.
