#5 Draco Malfoy:
Draco doesn’t come off immediately relatable because of what an a** he is, but it can really stir up your emotions when we realize he puts up a front because he is only trying to impress his parents. When he didn’t have the guts to kill Professor Dumbledore, we were able to see how sensitive he truly is and how much people can change trying to live up to others expectations.
#4 Dobby the House Elf:
Dobby is one of the saddest characters in Harry Potter. When we first meet him, he is constantly “punishing” himself for things he does wrong and thinks so little of himself. Harry is the first person to show Dobby love which helps Dobby change and become confident in himself, leading him to be the type of person who would do anything for his friends. Dobby shows how important loving your friends is, and how much of an impact it can have when you have friends love you too.
#3 Severus Snape:
Snape is also hard to relate to at first, probably because Harry accuses him of being extremely evil in every movie. He was once in love with Harry’s mother but Harry’s father made his life miserable and eventually stole the girl he loved. This is why it’s easy to see why Snape has mixed emotions for Harry because as you may recall, since the beginning, Severus had a bad attitude towards Harry and was always looking for an excuse to punish him. It’s easy to see people only for what you hold against them, which is sad but it’s also very human and this is why Snape is so relatable.
#2 Neville Longbottom:
Throughout the films, Neville’s character development is very significant every step of the way. He started off as the kid who couldn’t do anything right and was always the punchline of the joke. Even though no one took him seriously, he still tried his hardest to always stand up for what was right. In the Sorcerer’s Stone, Neville was nervous to stand up to his friends but did it anyway and in the Deathly Hallows, Neville stands up to the one wizard everyone else is afraid of. Perhaps we can’t all relate to being as brave as Neville but it’s easy to relate and admire Neville’s substantial character growth.
#1 Harry Potter:
Not often is the main character the best character of a series but Harry Potter is the best and most relatable character. Harry is thrown into a world he knows nothing about and doesn’t know what to do half the time. He is almost always confused about something and constantly has to ask others for help because he knows that you just can’t do everything on your own. Even though Harry is in the world of magic, it’s easy to relate to how hard and confusing life can be because it feels like you were just thrown into it sometimes.
