~ Ollivanders is a fine wands shop described as "narrow and shabby
~ with a sign that reads Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Wands since 382 BC in peeling gold letters over the door ~ the only display in the window overlooking Diagon Alley is a single wand lying on a faded purple cushion in the dusty window
~ within, there are countless narrow boxes piled neatly right up to the ceiling and a spindly-legged chair" (Hagrid, however, breaks it after he sits upon it).
~ Mr Ollivander, the pale-eyed, white-haired shopkeeper, makes and sells magic wands to witches and wizards as they enter school or break their old wands
~ He remembers every wand he has ever sold. To determine the best wand for a witch or wizard, Mr Ollivander measures various body parts
~ including, in Harry's case, between his nostrils and then checks the reactions of various wands to the buyer, a process to which he refers as "the wand choosing the wizard."
~ the shop closed when Mr Ollivander went missing in Half-Blood Prince when Voldemort ordered his Death Eaters to kidnap Ollivander to attempt to discover more about the link between his own and Harry's wand
~ One of his last customers was Neville, for whom he made a wand of cherry and unicorn hair
~ However, Harry rescues Ollivander in Deathly Hallows
~ The founder of the house is Godric Gryffindor.
~ Gryffindor values courage, bravery, nerve and chivalry ~ Its mascot is the lion, and its colours are scarlet and gold
~The Gryffindor motto is "Their daring, nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart"
~ The Head of this house is the Transfiguration teacher and Deputy Headmistress, Minerva McGonagall, and the house ghost is Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington
~ more commonly known as Nearly Headless Nick
~ The Gryffindor common room is located in one of the castle's highest towers, the entrance to which is located on the seventh floor in the east wing of the castle and is guarded by a painting of The Fat Lady, who is garbed in a pink dress
~ She permits entry only after being given the correct password, as was distinguished in the third book, when Sirius Black tried forcing entry into the tower, only to be blocked by The Fat Lady after he could not give the correct password
~ In the first book, Neville Longbottom tends to forget the password and must wait near the painting until other Gryffindors arrive to open the way
~ The founder of this house is Helga Hufflepuff.
~ Hufflepuff values hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty
~ The house mascot is the badger, and canary yellow and black are its colours
~ The Hufflepuff motto is "Those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil"
~ The Head of this house is the Herbology teacher Pomona Sprout, and the house ghost is The Fat Friar
~ The Hufflepuff dormitories and common room entrance "is concealed in a stack of large barrels in a nook on the right hand side of the kitchen corridor."
~ To enter, one must tap the barrel two from the bottom in the middle of the second row in the rhythm of 'Helga Hufflepuff'
~ Unlike any other house, the Hufflepuff common room has a repelling device that douses the illegal entrant in vinegar if the wrong lid is tapped or the rhythm is wrong
~ The Hufflepuff common room is filled with yellow hangings and fat armchairs and it has little underground tunnels leading to the dormitories, all of which have perfectly round doors, like barrel tops

~ The common room, which went undescribed in the series until the climax of Deathly Hallows, is round and filled with blue hangings and armchairs, has a domed ceiling painted with stars and features a replica statue of Rowena wearing her diadem
~ Harry also notes that Ravenclaws "have a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains"
~ A logical riddle must be solved to gain entry, whereas the Gryffindor and Slytherin common rooms only require a password, indicating that it may be easier for those students from other houses who possess a high degree of intelligence to enter this common room than others
~ Professor McGonagall, the head of the Gryffindor House, solves the riddle accurately.
~ Salazar Slytherin founded the house
~ Slytherin house values ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness
~ the Sorting Hat said in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone that Slytherins will do anything to get their way
~ The house mascot of Slytherin is the serpent, and the house colors are green and silver
~ The Slytherin motto is "Slytherin will help you on your way to greatness"

~ Then, Horace Slughorn, the previous Head of House, comes out of retirement re-assuming authority
~ The ghost of Slytherin house is The Bloody Baron
~ The Slytherin dormitories and common room are reached through a bare stone wall in the dungeons
~ The Slytherin common room is a long, low, dungeon-style room, located under the Hogwarts Lake, furnished with green lamps and carved armchairs
~ The room is described in the second book as having a greenish glow
~ The Sorting Hat claims that blood purity is a factor in selecting Slytherins, although this is not mentioned until the fifth book
~ There is no reason to believe, however, that Muggle-born students are not sorted there, merely that pure-blooded students are more desirable to that house, as there are several examples of half-bloods in the house (such as Snape and Voldemort)
~ In Deathly Hallows, a group of Snatchers claim that "not many Mudbloods" are sorted into Slytherin.
~ When believing Harry to be dead and thinking that he has final victory in his grasp, Voldemort proclaims his intention to abolish the other three houses and force all Hogwarts students into Slytherin
~ This design is foiled by his defeat and death, after which Slytherin becomes more diluted in its blood purity, no longer remaining the pure-blood bastion it once was
~ Its dark reputation, however, does linger

Dumbledore is the headmaster of Hogwarts
and the founder and leader of the Order
of the Phoenix. Which is an organisation dedicated to fighting the main antagonist of the series, Lord Voldemort.
Albus Dumbledore is portrayed by Richard Harris.
McGinagall is the Deputy Headmistress and head of Gryffindor House. She is also the Transfiguration professor and later Headmistress at Hogwarts.
McGonagall is described as a tall, rather severe-looking woman, with black hair typically drawn into a tight bun. She wears emerald green robes, a pointed hat, and always has a very prim expression. She speaks with a slight Scottish accent and wears square spectacles that match the markings around the eyes of her Animagus form of a British Shorthair silver tabby cat. She has the distinction of being the first Animagus introduced in the series and being one of the few registered Animagi of the century, though she was rarely seen using the ability.
Harry James Potter
Harry Potter is the main character and on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard. He attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to practice magic under the guidance of the kind headmaster Albus Dumbledore. Harry also discovers that he is already famous throughout the magical communityand his fate is tied with that of Lord Voldemort, the internationally feared Dark Wizard and murderer of his mother and father. At school he makes two great friends named Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger and they support almost everything he does.
He is hostile toward Harry and is built up to be the primary enemy until the final chapters. As the books progress, 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. Snape primarily teaches Potions at Hogwarts, though in the sixth novel he teaches Defence Against the Dark Arts, a position which he was known to have desired throughout the series. He ultimately becomes Headmaster of Hogwarts in the final novel.
Ron is best friends with Harry Potter and Hermione Granger and he is a member of the Weasley family. Which is a pure blood family, who reside in "The Burrow" outside Ottery St. Catchpole. Along with Harry and Hermione, he is a member of the Gryffindor house. Ron is present in most of the action throughout the series due to his friendship with Harry.
Hermione Jean Granger
Ronald Bilius "Ron" Weasley
Hermione is a Muggle-born Gryffindor student, and the best friend of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. She was nearly twelve when she first attended Hogwarts. She is an overachiever who excels academically, and is described by Rowling as a "very logical, upright and good" character. Rowling adds that Hermione's parents, two Muggle dentists, are a bit bemused by their odd daughter but very proud of her all the same." They are well aware of the wizarding world and have visited Diagon Alley with her. Hermione's foil at Hogwarts is Pansy Parkinson, a bully.
Neville is a pure-blood Gryffindor student in Harry's year. He is described as round-faced and "short and plump and blond." He is highly gifted at Herbology. His parents, Frank and Alice Longbottom, were prominent Aurors and Order of the Phoenix members until they were tortured into insanity by a group of Death Eaters led by Bellatrix Lestrange. Then, Neville was subsequently raised by his paternal grandmother, Augusta. He is so forgetful that his grandmother gives him a Remembrall. Neville's magical abilities are weak and appeared just in time to save his life when he was eight. Despite his timidity, Neville will fight anyone after some encouragement or if he thinks it is right and important.
Hagrid is a half-giant nearly 12 feet tall, with tangled black hair and beard. He was expelled from Hogwarts and his wand was broken, but Professor Dumbledore let him stay on as the school's gamekeeper, a job which enables him to lavish affection and pet names on even the most dangerous of magical creatures. Hagrid is fiercely loyal to Dumbledore and quickly becomes a close friend of Harry, Ron and later Hermione, but his carelessness makes him unreliable.
He is a tall, thin man who wears half-moon spectacles and has silver hair and a beard that tucks into his belt and he is the headmaster of Hogwarts, and thought to be the only wizard Voldemort fears. Dumbledore, while renowned for his achievements in magic, finds it difficult to resist sweets and has a whimsical sense of humour. Although he shrugs off praise, he is aware of his own brilliance.
She is a tall, severe-looking woman with black hair tied in a tight bun and she teaches Transfiguration, and sometimes transforms herself into a cat. She is in charge of Gryffindor House.
She is the sister of Harry's mother Lily, is a thin woman with a long neck that she uses for spying on the neighbors. She regards her magical sister as a freak and tries to pretend that she never existed. Her husband Vernon is a heavily-built man whose irascible bluster covers a narrow mind and a fear of anything unusual. Their son Dudley is an overweight, spoiled bully.
He is Harry's uncl, Petunia's husband, and Dudley's father. Vernon is described as a big, beefy man, with hardly any neck, and a large mustache. He is very much the head of his family, laying down most of the rules for Harry and doing most of the threatening, as well as spoiling Dudley.
He is the only child of Vernon and Petunia and Harry's only cousin. Described as a very large, blonde boy, Dudley is generally given his way in almost everything, and shows the symptoms of a spoiled brat. Dudley is a cold-hearted bully and the leader of a gang of thugs with whom he regularly beats up Harry and younger children on the flimsiest of excuses. He is only one month older than Harry. The same year Harry starts at Hogwarts, Dudley is enrolled at his father's old private boarding school, Smeltings.
Draco is a slim, pale boy who speaks in a bored drawl. He is arrogant about his skill in Quidditch, and despises anyone who is not a pure blood wizard and wizards who do not share his views. His parents had supported Voldemort, but changed sides after the dark wizard's disappearance. Draco avoids direct confrontations, and tries to get Harry and his friends into trouble.
Twitching, stammering Professor Quirrell teaches Defence Against the Dark Arts. Reputedly he was a brilliant scholar, but his nerve was shattered by an encounter with vampires. Quirrell wears a turban to conceal the fact that he is voluntarily possessed by Voldemort, whose face appears on the back of Quirrell's head.
Professer Snape, who has a hooked nose, sallow complexion and greasy black hair, teaches Potions, but is eager to teach Defence Against the Dark Arts. Snape praises pupils in Slytherin, his own House, but seizes every opportunity to humiliate others, especially Harry. Several incidents, beginning with the shooting pain in Harry's scar near the end of the first dinner, lead Harry and his friends to think Snape is a follower of Voldemort.
The school's caretaker, Filch, knows the school's secret passages better than anyone else except possibly the Weasley twins. His cat, Mrs. Norris, aids his hunts for misbehaving pupils.
