Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows is the seventh and final book in J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series. Voldemort is continuing to accumulate power and it is up to Harry, Ron, and Hermoine to find the remaining Horcruxes to defeat him once and for all. When the Death Eaters descend upon Hogwarts, it leads to a battle that will affect the future of the wizarding world forever.

  • Harry Potter - Harry is the main character in“Deathly Hallows”. He’s taken on the enormous responsibility of living up to his destiny as the one person who has the power to kill Voldemort for good. Thanks to help from his best friends, he’s able to do just that.
  • Ronald Weasley - Ron is Harry’s best friend, and goes with him on his journey to find Voldemort’s Horcruxes. Ron goes through a period of anger and doubt, and leaves the quest for a time, but he returns just in time and proves himself to be a loyal and true friend to Harry.
  • Hermione Granger - Ever the brain, Hermione gets Harry and Ron out of more dangerous situations than they can count, and they surely would have never succeeded on the quest if it weren’t for her.
  • Ginny Weasley - Ginny is Harry’s ex-girlfriend, and Ron’s sister. Harry loves her very much, but he ended things with her before his journey so Voldemort would not torture her for information. She is a brave, fierce fighter.
  • Remus Lupin - Lupin is a member of the Order of the Phoenix, and is close to Harry. He marries another Order member, Tonks, and they end up having a baby boy. He asks Harry to be godfather to little Ted, and Harry accepts.
  • Tonks - Tonks is a member of the Order and is married to Lupin. She and Lupin both are killed during the last battle at Hogwarts.
  • Fred and George Weasley - Fred and George are Ron’s twin brothers who own a joke shop. They are members of the Order, and Fred is killed at the battle of Hogwarts.
  • Mad Eye Moody - Mad Eye is another member of the Order who helps Harry escape the Dursley’s home. He is killed during the attempt.
  • Dumbledore - Dumbledore is the last Headmaster of Hogwarts, and is sort of a father-figure to Harry. He had a mysterious and secret past, and Harry spends a great deal of time wondering what Dumbledore truly meant for him on this final quest.
  • Voldemort - Voldemort is Harry’s nemesis, and the one wizard who Harry must kill at all costs. He is supremely evil, and can’t understand the forces that rule Harry’s life, namely love and friendship. It’s these simple forces, however, the ultimately prove his undoing, just as Dumbledore always predicted it would.
  • Bill and Fleur Weasley - Bill marries Fleur at the beginning of the book, and they live together in a cottage by the sea that frequently hides people on the run from the Ministry and Death Eaters. They are both members of the Order.
  • Severus Snape - Snape is the new Headmaster of Hogwarts, and Harry finds out at the very last that Snape was in love with his mother his whole life, and was really loyal to Dumbledore and the Order, in spite of what they always thought.
  • Bellatrix Lestrange - Bellatrix is one of Voldemort’s most loyal servants, and she is ruthless in her pursuit of members of the Order. She is one of the most heartless fighters on Voldemort’s team of Death Eaters.
  • Xeno Lovegood - Xeno is Luna Lovegood’s father, and editor of the Quibbler. He is very anti-Voldemort until they take Luna away, and he ends up turning Harry in so he can get her back.
  • Luna Lovegood - Luna is a Ravenclaw student and one of Harry’s truest friends.
  • Neville Longbottom - Neville is another good friend of Harry’s who has really gained confidence the older he’s gotten. He’s a major part of the underground resistance at Hogwarts.
