Severus Snape

Severus Snape is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. He is characterized as a flawed, tragic or anti-hero of considerable complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions a... nd anguish. In the first novel of the series, Snape is a teacher who is hostile from the start toward Harry and is built up to be the primary antagonist until the final chapters. As the series progresses, Snape's character becomes more layered and complex. Rowling does not fully reveal the details of his true loyalties until the end of the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Over the course of the series, Snape's portrayal evolves from that of a malicious and partisan teacher to that of a pivotal character of considerable complexity and moral ambiguity.In the series, Snape is an exceptionally skillful wizard who primarily teaches Potions at Hogwarts school, though in the sixth novel he teaches Defence Against the Dark Arts, a position which he was known to have desired throughout the series. For much of the series Snape's actions seem to serve Harry's nemesis, Lord Voldemort, although Harry's mentor, Dumbledore, often advises Harry that – despite his actions and animosity – Snape is trustworthy and his true loyalties can be relied upon. He ultimately becomes Headmaster of Hogwarts in the final novel, after killing Dumbledore at the end of the sixth book. Snape himself dies at the hands of Voldemort in the final chapters of the seventh book, revealing his memories and true back story to Harry in his last minutes. In the book's epilogue, Harry describes Snape as "one of the bravest men I knew"   more

Lord Voldemort

Lord Voldemort is a fictional character and the main antagonist of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Voldemort first appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was released in 1997. Voldemort appeared either in person or in flash... backs in each book and film adaptation in the series, except the third, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, where he is mentioned.In the series, Voldemort is the archenemy of Harry Potter, who according to a prophecy has "the power to vanquish the Dark Lord". Almost no witch or wizard dares to speak his name, instead referring to him by epithets such as "You-Know-Who", "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" or "the Dark Lord". Voldemort's obsession with blood purity signifies his aim to rid the wizarding world of Muggle heritage and to conquer both worlds, Muggle and wizarding, to achieve pure-blood dominance. Through his mother's family, he is the last descendant of wizard Salazar Slytherin, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is the leader of the Death Eaters, a group of evil wizards and witches dedicated to ridding the Wizarding World of Muggles and establishing Voldemort as its supreme ruler   more

Harry Potter

The fictional universe of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series of fantasy novels comprises two distinct societies: the wizarding world and the Muggle world. The Muggle World is the series' name for the world inhabited by the non-magical majority, wit... h which the wizarding world exists coextensively, but mostly remains hidden from the non-magical "Muggles". The plot of the series is set in contemporary Britain, but in a veiled and separate shadow society wherein magic is real, and those who can use it live in self-enforced seclusion, hiding their abilities from the rest of the world. The term "wizarding world" refers to the global wizard community that lives hidden in parallel with the Muggle world; the different terms refer to different communities within the same area rather than separate planets or worlds   more

Remus Lupin

Remus John Lupin, nicknamed Moony, is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. He first appears in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. In the films, he i... s portrayed by David Thewlis as an adult, and James Utechin as a teenager. There is evidence to suggest that Lupin is a more powerful wizard than he lets on. In Prisoner of Azkaban, he produced a handful of flames in his bare hands, a possible show of wandless magic. In Order of the Phoenix, he is the only fighter besides Dumbledore who came through unscathed from the battle at the Department of Mysteries. Similarly, he emerges physically unharmed from the Battle of Hogwarts in Half-Blood Prince, even remarking that a Killing Curse had barely missed him at one point. Lupin often acts as the voice of reason within the Order of the Phoenix. He is more willing than Molly Weasley to let Harry and the other students know what is happening, but he also will not allow them to be inducted into the Order and stops Sirius from telling them too much. Lupin is a half-blood born, according to the series, to a wizard and a muggle woman on   more

Tonks

Nymphadora Tonks is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. The character first appears in the novel Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2003) and the movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (20... 07) as part of the advanced guard sent to the Dursley' to bring Harry to Grimmauld Place. She is described as having "...A pale heart-shaped face, dark twinkling eyes, and short spiky hair that was a violent shade of violet." She despises her given name and prefers to be called by her surname alone. Tonks explains to Harry that she is an Auror and a member of the Order of the Phoenix. At this point, Rowling introduces a rare magical talent previously unmentioned in the books, being a Metamorphmagus. Tonks explains that: "Metamorphmagi are really rare, they're born, not made." She is a shape-shifter who can change her appearance at will (she seems, however, limited to a human-like form) which she can use not only to disguise herself in the line of duty, but also for experimenting with her appearance, and even for her friends' entertainment. Rowling also adds a comical side to Tonks' character; she is notoriously clumsy and unskilled   more
