Harry Potter – A young wizard, studying at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Called “The Boy Who Survived” because of the tragic events of 1981, when his parents were killed by Lord Voldemort. The title character of J.K. Rowling’s series of movies, their books, and games. A cult figure in the youth culture of the late 1990s and early 2000s, HARRY POTTER is played on screen by Daniel Radcliffe.
Probably the most famous wizard of the 20th century. The only son of Lily and James Potter. He became famous thanks to the prophecy of Sybill Trelawney, who predicted that the only person able to defeat Lord Voldemort would be a wizard born at the end of July. Harry, as it were, was chosen by the Dark Lord as his opponent (as the prophecy could equally apply to Neville Longbottom). Thanks to the traitor, he reached the Potters hideout in Godric’s Hollow. Harry’s parents died saving their only son, and Lily sacrifice her own life made the newborn invulnerable to Voldemort the deadly spell cast by the wizard Voldemort bounced off and hit him. Voldemort lost his form, and Harry became his last Horcrux and the only person not killed by the Avada Kedavra spell.
By Dumbledore‘s decision, Harry was send to his uncle, where he lives until he reached the age of 11. However they never treated him equal as their own son, Dudley. Harry lived under the stairs and silently endured the humiliation until his 11th birthday, when he received a letter from Hogwarts. he also know that he was a wizard and truth about his parents deaths.
Harry’s entry into the world of magic became the catalyst for all the events leading up to the grand finale in Part Seven. From the very beginning, Harry has encountered signs of Voldemort‘s presence as he tries to regain his power – in the first part, by preventing him from obtaining the immortality-giving Philosopher’s Stone; in the second, by rescuing Ron‘s sister, Ginny, and by destroying the Dark Lord’s secret journal from his school days and killing a basilisk. There have been more disturbing events involving dark magic, however, in the third part of the adventure has allowed Potter to make a name for himself as a very talented wizard who created a corporeal Patronus at the age of 13 and thus saved his godfather and his parents friend Sirius Black.
In his fourth year at school, Harry won the Triwizard Tournament, but his friend Cedric Diggory died in the tournament. Thanks to the deceptions and scheming of Barty Crouch Jr. he found himself at Voldemort‘s rebirth ceremony. However, the Ministry of Magic did not believe Potter when he said the worst had happened. Dumbledore reactivated the Order of the Phoenix (a secret society set up for him to fight Death Eaters). During the battle in the Department of Mysteries, he witnessed both Black‘s death and Voldemort’s revelation to the Aurors. Harry played a significant role in other battles of the Second Wizarding War. he found and destroyed the remaining Horcruxes of the Dark Lord. In limbo (a state between life and death), he met Dumbledore, who helped him make a choice – Harry returned to the world of the living and fought a decisive duel with Lord Voldemort.
After the events that ended the Second Wizarding War, he did not resume his education. However, he was accepted as an Auror and helped reform the Ministry of Magic, a few years later he was passed over for the head of the Auror’s Office and then promoted in the Department of Wizarding Law Enforcement. He married Ginny Weasley, with whom he had three children.
Harry was probably the only known Lord of Death who (temporarily) possessed three Deathly Hallows. He was repeatedly told that he resembled his parents – he inherited his tousled dark hair from his father, and his green (blue in the film because Daniel Radcliffe was allergic to contact lenses) eyes from his mother. He wore glasses. He also had a lightning-shaped scar the only reminder of the night his parents died that burned him whenever the Dark Lord was around.
