Brief Summary (spoilers)
Harry James Potter (b. 31 July 1980) was a half-blood wizard, the only child and son of James Potter and Lily Potter (née Evans), and one of the most famous wizards of modern times. In what proved to be a vain attempt to circumvent a prophecy that a boy born at the end of July of 1980 would be able to defeat him, Voldemort tried to murder him when he was a year and three months exactly after murdering Harry’s parents as they tried to protect him. One consequence of Lily’s protection is that her orphaned son had to be raised by her only remaining blood relative, with her Muggle sister Petunia’s family, where he was neither welcomed nor nurtured, but would stay alive, until he was seventeen years old. As the only known survivor of the Killing Curse up to that point, Harry was already famous before he arrived at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Early on his eleventh birthday, Harry learned that he was a wizard. He began attending Hogwarts and was Sorted into Gryffindor house. He became the youngest Quidditch Seeker in over a century and eventually captain of his house’s team. He became even better known in his early years for protecting the Philosopher’s Stone from Voldemort and saving Ron’s sister Ginny Weasley from the Chamber of Secrets. In his fourth year, Harry won the Triwizard Tournament. The next school year, Harry reluctantly founded Dumbledore’s Army and fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, during which he lost his godfather.
Harry played a significant role in the Second Wizarding War and hunted down and destroyed Voldemort’s Horcruxes with Ron and Hermione. He encountered Voldemort and sacrificed himself. When told he could choose to live or to “move on,” Harry chose to live, and after he awoke he confronted Voldemort, and defeated him.
Harry is also notable for being the only known Master of Death, having united the three Deathly Hallows.

The books are told from Harry’s point of view, and so the audience knows more about him- his personal thoughts, his achievements, and his failures- than any other character. Harry has always been likable. He’s the underdog, he’s full of dry humour and wit, and he’s a true Gryffindor. He ranks as one of the bravest characters in the series. He’s constantly having to overcome hostility: his dreadful aunt and uncle, Professor Snape, who seems to hate him for no reason, Draco Malfoy, and of course, Voldemort, not to mention the strange looks he tends to get from being “The Boy Who Lived” and “The Chosen One.” Great responsibility was thrust on Harry from a young age and yet he managed it. He managed to defeat the most powerful dark wizard of all time. Apart from that, we as readers connect with Harry. Apart from having to save the world, he’s a normal teenage boy. He has romantic interactions and he has exams and he plays Quidditch exceedingly well. Harry’s just all-around likeable. – artysgirl

Why We Like Her
Indie is really determined to fight for what she wants. She’s the fierce kind of girl that would be great to have around at time like that. Cassia needed someone who could support her out in the wilderness and Indie was there for her. She’s strong and brave and very clever. She’s very passionate and knows what she wants. She’s a survivor and a strong female character. -AlyssaIndia
