Transcript of Harry Potter

Protagonists
Major
Harry Potter
Harry is the main protagonist of the novel who turns 17 in the beginning of the book. Harry is a curageous and determined young wizard who has decided not to return to Hogwarts school, instead pursuing a quest that Dumbledore left him to find and destroy Horcruxes. These are magical items that are keeping Voldemort. Harry is consistently faithful to his quest throughout the book, though he struggles with self-doubt and wonders whether Dumbledore truly loved him.
Ron Weasley
He is Harry's best friend and companion for most of the book. Ron is the same age as Harry and has also left Hogwarts to accompany Harry on his quest. He displays bravery, resourcefulness, and loyalty to Harry, though he also has to overcome his own immaturity and his self-doubt at playing second fiddle to Harry. He is in love with Hermione Granger and they eventually get married.
Hermione Granger
She is Harry and Ron's classmate and companion. She also eventually becomes Ron's girlfriend and later wife. Hermione is the smartest and most focused out of the group, and her intensive planning and exhaustive research she puts into the quest has helped a lot of times. She is also very resourceful under pressure, rescuing the group from scrapes in very thoughtful and farsighted ways. Hermione is muggle-born or a mudblood (which is an offensive term meaning a witch or wizard born to non-magical parents.
Albus Dumbledore
The former headmaster of Hogwarts. He was Harry's friend and mentor, until his death in the previous book. Dumbledore is an extremely intelligent and farsighted individual. He has laid out plans for Harry's quest very thoroughly, but he is very cryptic in his commands. Because of that Harry comes to doubt his wisdom. Dumbledore's character and accomplishments come under attack throughout the course of the book because of a biography written by Rita Skeeter. Also Dumbledore found the Order of the Phoenix, a group of witches and wizards dedicated to fighting Voldemort.
Severus Snape
The man who killed Dumbledore, and a professor at Hogwarts, who later becomes headmaster. Before killing Dumbledore, Snape had been both a member of Dumbledore's Order of the Phoenix and one of Voldemort's Death Eaters. Dumbledore steadfastly believed Snape to be spying for him against Voldemort, and Voldemort believed Snape to be his spy against Dumbledore. Though numerous members of the Order and the Death Eaters suspect Snape of being a traitor to their respective causes, Snape's true loyalties are a mystery throughout most of the series.

A young Auror and member of the Order of the Phoenix. She hates her first name and insists on being called simply Tonks. She marries Remus Lupin and has a son by him.

Rufus Scrimgeour
The Minister of Magic who replaced Cornelius Fudge. Like his predecessor, Scrimgeour is too obtuse or too cowardly to oppose Voldemort outright, and he does not trust Dumbledore or Harry. He is killed when Voldemort takes over the Ministry and installs his own puppet.
Alastor "mad eye" moody
Alastor is an Auror and a member of the Order of the Phoenix. Moody is heavily scarred from his battles with Dark wizards and wears a magic eyeball that's always in motion. He was killed protecting Harry in the beginning of the book.
Neville Longbottom
A student in Harry's class, who for most of the series has been a pathetic weakling. He wasn't able to perform magic properly or remember his lessons. In previous novels we learn that his parents were Aurors who were tortured and driven insane by the Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange. In this novel, he transforms himself into the heroic leader of Dumbledore's Army and the underground resistance to Snape, filling Harry's role in his absence.
Xenophilius Lovegood
Luna's father, who shares her intrest in unusual things. Xenophilius wears and odd triangular symbol resembling an eye which is the symbol for the Deathly Hallows.

Arthur has always had a fondness for and curiosity about the Muggle world, which has kept him from advancing very far in his career at the Ministry. When Voldemort's Death Eaters take over the Ministry, his safety is imperiled as well even though his family is of 'pure' blood status. His family in the book are considered blood traitors.
Fred and George Weasley
Ron's older brothers who are identical twins that few people can tell apart. They are highly mischievous and trouble causing but loyal to Harry. This is because they were both in Griffindor and that Harry gave them his triwizard tournament winnings to start a joke shop called Weasley's wheezers.
Molly Weasley
Ron's mother, who is in charge of the large Weasley family. She is very motherly to Harry and often strict.
Ginny Weasley
Ron's younger sister and the only female in the Weasley family. She was formerly Harry's girlfriend. Ginny is a member of Dumbledore's Army and has proven herself a tough and resilient ally even before getting together with Harry.

The conflict of Man versus Man is the main conflict of the entire series. The struggle between Voldemort and Harry is the main driving force behind the entire plot. The two characters are linked very closely, as Harry is the Seventh Horcrux which means he has art of Voldemort's soul inside of him.

This is the age he becomes recognised as a full wizard and loses the "trace" a type of magic the Ministry of Magic uses to keep track of underage magic. He must be moved from his current whereabout to a new location, the Burrow: becuase he is no longer protected by his mum's magic once he turns 17 or no longer calls Privet Drive his home.
