Transcript of The archetypes in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"

Archetypes in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"
An archetype is a stereotypical example of a person or thing.
The characters in "The Sorcerer's Stone" have very distinct personalities, their can easily be identified by the noticeable habits they entertain.
The Wise Old Man
Professor Dumbledore
The Devil
Lord Voldemort
The Best Friend
Ron Weasley
The Shape shifter
Professor Quirrell
The Bully
Draco verbally abuses and threatens his chosen target, Harry potter and his friends.

His posse Crabbe and Goyle, though not very intelligent are there as a wall of muscle to back up his threats.

He does not tolerate weakness in anyone, including himself.
The Curmudgeon
Professor Snape
The Jester(s)
Fred and George Weasley
The Analyst
Hermione Granger
The Mentor
The Hero
Harry Potter
Unusual birth circumstances caused by a traumatic event leads him on an the path to adventure.

He fought a troll to defend Hermione and defeated Lord Voldemort while he was hiding in Professor Quirrell's body.

While attempting to prove himself he discovers he has a talent for flying.

Kind and wise, Dumbledore offers guidance and advice.

He cautions Harry to use Lord Voldemort's name so that he will not harbor an irrational fear.

Though a philosopher Dumbledore seems to have some very odd quirks, like offering candies to anyone who arrives in his office.
He is the main antagonist in Harry Potter.

So feared no one will use his name, he is instead referred to as "He who will not be named.

He is the reason for our hero's awful living conditions.
Ron is Harry's first friend and he provides a comic relief in Harry's life.

Always a helpful side-kick Ron joins Harry in defeating the troll in the bathroom.

His loyalty is shown when he sacrifices himself so that Harry may go on to defeat the trials.
Professor Quirrell appeared as a very jumpy and superstitious man. However he is a false ally.

He can also count as a literal shape shifter, considering he had Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head.

Draco Malfoy
Irritable and always degrading towards his students talents or intelligence Professor Snape is not well liked amongst the student population in Hogwarts.

Seen as a minor enemy of the protagonist he hardly ever smiles or socializes.

Easily finds faults in everything and punishes the hero for disrespect even though the event did not occur.
Always looking for humor in bad situations, the Weasley twins provide comic relief during the darker parts of the book.

When Harry becomes nervous for his very first quidditch match they attempt to reassure by joking with him.

Meaningless jokes, pranks, and games are their trademarks.

Always able to investigate situations rationally, Hermione is Harry's other very intelligent friend.

Hermione is different because she is always wishing for new information she is eager to face new challenges with her magic and her logic.
