Earlier in the morning, I was catching up on some blog reading and I came across a post by a Potterhead where she'd mentioned the Weasley Twins as two of her favorite Harry Potter characters. That got me thinking about my favorite characters from this series. And as today happens to be a Tuesday, I figured why not do a "Top 10" list of my favorite Harry Potter characters! So, here they are...
My 10 Favorite Harry Potter Characters
- Professor Dumbledore.
The greatest wizard of all times, who looks down, with all-knowing eyes, through his half-moon glasses, at the students gathered before him in the Great Hall of Hogwarts. (And occasionally winks at Harry too.) A man of great wisdom and some really memorable quotes. Here's one...
- Professor Hagrid.
The half-giant who prescribes the Monster Book of monsters that the students can't even figure out how to open, keeps a dragon for a pet, and makes iron-hard cookies!
- Harry Potter.
The boy who lived. Despite all odds. And his recklessness. And the great love "trouble" has for him. And the prophecy. And, of course, "he-who-must-not-be-named"!
- Ronald Weasley.
The red-haired boy with freckles and a perpetually lost look on his face. If you think about it, the only reason he had to go through all those dangerous adventures with Harry was because his family showed Harry how to get into Platform 9 and 3/4.
- Hermione Granger.
Miss "Cross-your-T's-and-dot-your-I's". Honestly! That's what I thought of her in the first part of the series. Harry and Ron were seriously very bad influence on this hard-working, disciplined, studious, and once-upon-a-time-a-law-abiding-student-of-Hogwarts!
- Weasley Twins.
The greatest mischief-makers I've ever seen in any book! Seriously! I can't even begin to imagine what poor Molly must have gone through raising these two imps! Two "wizard" imps, on top of everything! Phewww! But some of my favorite quotes from this series come from these two geniuses.
- Neville Longbottom.
The boy who evolved the most during the series. From a timid little thing to one of the bravest "soldiers" who fought in the great battle of good versus evil! But then the Sorting Hat always knew he was brave, or he wouldn't have been in Gryffindor, right?
- "Loony Luna" Lovegood.
I can't believe there exists anyone in the whole world who didn't develop a fondness for this dreamy-eyed and seemingly scatter-brained girl who read the Quibbler upside down and spoke some of the wisest words at times... wise beyond her years!
- Lee Jordan.
- Errol, the Weasley's owl.
Always landing at the wrong place, at the wrong time, in the wrong style. Poor thing. He looks so miserable. I don't know why, but, I developed a fondness for this wretched creature more than Harry's gorgeous white Hedwig.
So these are my Top 10 Favorite Harry Potter Characters. Who are your favorites? They can be other than these 10 too. Do share.
