Before I begin, two main factors to consider are that 1) I have not included any of the 'main' characters - meaning the lead roles and 2) I have not looked up any other peoples lists of favorite characters at all, therefore have no subconscious reasons for picking the below other than the natural draw I have towards them. Here is my Top 5 Harry Potter Characters.
From his beard and accent, that both match my other half's, to his love of creatures and just genuinely beautiful and caring soul, Hagrid has always been top of my list. In a way I feel sorry for him and just want to be his friend, give him a hug ya know, but of course he is a big guy and despite his emotional likeness to myself, he shows his strong side on multiple occasions too. I would love to know a lot more about his life after the series ended and how his and Harry's relationship continued.
I didn't say that this was going to only include humans! Who didn't ball their eyes out when they read of Dobby's end and then sobbed even harder when they watched it even though they knew it was coming?! If you are a Potterhead and didn't, dang you must have a strong heart and tear ducts haha.
Like Hagrid, he's just such a genuine kind and pure being. Everything Dobby did, even if it did cause a little bother, always stemmed from trying to help.
As a misfit, 'weirdo' and all around different person, I, along with many of you I expect, related to Luna. Well I have to admit actually, that not only did I relate to her but was inspired by her. To embrace being different and as long as you are a kind person it doesn't matter if you believe in things others don't.
Maybe this choice is a little weird to some people, especially with Hedwig not being a speaking/big part (obviously). Of course as an all around bird enthusiast it was inevitable for me not to love her from the get go. Coupled with the fact that the scenes Hedwig was actually in she had a pretty sassy attitude, lead me to choose to give her one of the limited spots on this list.
Not only a favorite character from this series for me, but I may also go as far to say she is my favorite mother character in any books or movies ever.
Red headed and beautiful, a housewife and fighter, a mother to 7 of her own and still expands her heart to not only Harry but everyone who comes into her home. I love her! Plus, Julie Walters is a long time fave of mine too :P
Short but sweet, that is the quick low down on my favorite characters! I'd love to hear who yours are and why, so let me know in the comments. If you have a similar post feel free to link it too :)
[Edit - I wanted to quickly take the opportunity to link another post that a fellow blogger has posted recently that I thought any other Potterheads would adore! Pop on over to Prompts By Dee to find out how you can Become a Real Life Hogwarts Student!! So cool eh?!]
