From Harry Potter to Neville Longbottom, every character in the Harry Potter series has given us a reason to live, laugh, think, and love. Your mind is already occupied with your favorite Harry Potter character, isn’t it? Some of us want to be as friendly as Molly Weasley, while some consider Voldemort as the true genius. Let’s take a look at some of the most inspirational characters of the Harry Potter series that have given us some serious life lessons, except Harry Potter (he’s already fav, isn’t it?).
- Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore
From students to powerful wizards, Dumbledore had struck chords with everyone. Whenever he spoke something, it made sense! Wisdom, compassion, power, responsibility, compassion, he’s got everything, as one of his fans says…
“From an idealistic and high-achieving adolescence gone horribly wrong (his father’s madness and imprisonment, his mother’s death, and the death of his sister (which he naturally blames himself for)), to finding the courage to fight and eventually beat the one man whose intellect rivaled his own, to refusing to run for Minister of Magic, to becoming the Headmaster of Hogwarts…”
- Neville Longbottom
From a clumsy, timid kid to a great wizard and leader, Neville is an another encouraging character that makes you believe “it’s you who make your destiny”. A Neville fan:
He was the ‘not chosen one’. He is what most people would be like in the real world, a person capable of heroic feats under dire circumstances, but not inclined to them every waking moment. Neville understands that it’s not about being aggressive every day, it’s about choosing your battles and knowing what’s worth fighting for.
- Professor Severus Snape
One of the most complicated characters of this series is favorite of millions. Exceptionally skilled, sarcastic comments, unpredictable moods, and a compassionate lover, Snape’s story from dark slither to tragic hero, is heart warming. A true fan:
I mean the guy played a spy in the camp of the darkest wizard of all time, killed the person who believed in him the most-Dumbledore(and in doing so earned the unforgiving wrath of the entire wizarding community) and ultimately sacrificed his own life for what?
To save Lily’s son-Harry, who each time reminded him of James, the person who took his Lily away from him.
- Hermione Granger
She’s one of the nerdiest wizards we’ll ever see. She has taught us some important lessons on unconditional friendship. She made us perceive that being a genius can be odd, but never hurtful.
When it comes to it, she is the most knowledgeable wizard student in Hogwarts in her time and still, there is no arrogance about her but it’s as if her knowledge is what simply drives the universe for Harry and Ron. Also, when it comes to choosing between love and friendship, she chooses friendship (stays back on the Horcrux hunt with Harry), simply put- she watches out for friends. — A fan
- Ron Weasley
He’s an average boy and best friend of Harry Potter. For many of us, he’s the one who has clearly proved that being the best friend of a popular guy is never easy! Couldn’t say it better than this:
He’s Harry’s best friend, which means that no matter what he does, the spotlight will always be on Harry. For instance, Ron plays the excellent game of chess to help Harry retrieve the Sorcerer’s Stone but nobody ever really mentions that. Plus, Harry yells at him all the time during his super moody phases but Ron just takes it in stride. In our opinion, he’s one of the most underestimated and under-appreciated characters in the series.
