10 Favorite Harry Potter Characters

10 Favorite Harry Potter Characters

Do you ever fall in love with a book's characters so much that they stay in your mind long after you've finished the book? Even years later?

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

  1. 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, crazy passwords, and some really memorable quotes. Here's one...

  2. Professor Hagrid.

    The simpleton, over-emotional, 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! Oh but his loyalty, towards those he loves, knows no bounds.

  3. Harry Potter.

    The boy who lived. Despite all odds. His recklessness. And his courage. And the great love "trouble" has for him. And yes, all his emotional "screwed-up-ness" too! All the rage bottled-up inside of him. All his feelings of being a misfit... or the odd-one-out. Over-weighed by a sense of responsibility. His complete inability to ask for help. Complete inability to look at himself the way others do... see his own goodness. Oh yes, very much human. Very relatable.

  4. Ronald Weasley.

    The red-haired boy with freckles and that perpetually lost look on his face. Dealing with his own insecurities and self-worth issues. Yet, still so brave and loyal. Also very much human. 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 onto Platform 9 and 3/4.

  5. Hermione Granger.

    Miss "Cross-your-T's-and-dot-your-I's". Hahaha! That's what I thought of her in the first part of the series. She kind of reminds me of myself in many ways. Will call a spade a spade. Tactless and blunt. Also witty and sharp. Loves to learn. Very knowledgeable, but also so condescending about it at times. Oh and so good at thinking things through logically. I think 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!

  6. Weasley Twins.

    The greatest mischief-makers I've ever seen in any book! So full of life, with such a refreshingly different perspective on every situation. 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.

  7. "Loony Luna" Lovegood.

    I don't think there is any Potterhead 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, wore radishes and dirigible plums as earrings, and spoke some of the wisest words at times... wise beyond her years!

  8. Dobby.

    The revolutionary house-elf. The bravest and most loyal friend anyone could ever wish for. So expressive in his love for Harry Potter, albeit in annoyingly weird ways. His huge heart was definitely in the right place. Can't say he had much of a brain though.

  9. Professor McGonagall

    Hogwarts teacher and Gryffindor's House-Mistress. Witty and sharp, loaded with that famous English sarcasm. She is one teacher in that Wizard school whom both students and teacher's alike tried not to cross. Strict and fair for the most part, but can be seen bending the rules too occasionally, whenever times call for extreme measures. Come to think of it, she's practically the grown-up version of Hermione Granger.

  10. Errol.

    The old, decrepit owl of the Weasley's. Famous for collapsing during his post deliveries. Always landing at the wrong place, at the wrong time, in the wrong style. Ron calls him a "menace". 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.

I'm not too fond of Harry potter series but if my favorite character has to be mentioned it would be Cedric Diggory in I think two Harry potter's played by none other than the Robert Pattison... hahaha.. on a serious note I liked Hermoine.. I think she was wicked (in a cute way )and smart.. And quite intelligent too... the dumbest was Harry potter himself...

@Sis - Hahahahahahaha! Of all the people to like in the series, you like Cedric Diggory, and for what a reason! =)) You are too funny!
I agree about Hermione though. Ron was dumber than Harry. Hagrid was even dumber. Errol was the dumbest!
