J. K. Rowling's major characters

Harry Potter

Harry is the boy who went from the lonely life of an ill-treated orphan, to discovering that he had magical powers and an important role to play in a hidden world of wizards and witches. He is brave, and values loyalty and friendship above all else.

Voldemort

Harry's nemesis cares nothing for other people, and doesn't care who he uses or hurts in order to destroy Harry and achieve his goals.

Dumbledore

Dumbledore owes something to the characters of Merlin and Gandalf, as he's a wizard of the old school. He has a long flowing beard, a kind nature, a certain mystique, and all the wisdom of his many years.
