The Quest Voldemort tries to stop Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in the forest.
Voldemort knows that they are after the stone so he tried to stop them on their journey.
He tried to make their quest to get the stone as hard as he could by setting up a lot of traps. Temptation of the Hero During the quest Harry, Hermione and Ron had times where they really struggled.
For example: to get to the stone, they had to enter through a trap door that was guarded by a three-headed dog.
Once they got past the dog, they fell into a trap of a deadly plant which would squeeze them to death every time they moved. After Hermione used a spell to help them escape, Harry flew on a broomstick to find the right key to open the door to move on.
Following this, the three of them had to play a life sized game of wizard's chess. It was during this event where Ron had to sacrifice his life.
All of these traps caused Harry and his friends to struggle. Final Confrontation After Hermione and Harry made it through, Harry continued on by himself while Hermione stayed back with Ron.
At this point Harry encountered Professor Quirrells.
Harry had trusted Professor Quirrells, but it turned out he was really against him.
This was where they fought for the stone. Apotheosis When Harry was in the cave with Professor Quirrells, he discovered that because Voldemort had become so weak, he had become a part of the professor. They were now one person.
By this time, Harry had begun to fight the Professor/Voldemort and realized that he had a special power.
Every time Harry would touch him, his body would crumble. This is how Harry defeated him. This invisible wall takes Harry into the magical world of wizards and witches, where he then boards the train to Hogwarts.
