Quick Biography

Harry James Potter (b. July 31, 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 in modern times. He was also one of the most famous students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry of his time. He was the only known survivor of the Killing Curse, having had Lord Voldemort attempt to murder him when he was an infant, which led to Voldemort's first defeat and the end of the First Wizarding War, as well as to the orphaned Harry being taken in by his Muggle relatives, the Dursleys.

At the age of eleven, Harry learned from Rubeus Hagrid, the Hogwarts Gamekeeper, that he was a wizard. He began attending Hogwarts and was sorted into Gryffindor house. While at school, Harry became best friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Furthermore, he became the youngest Seeker in over a century and eventually captain of his house's Quidditch team, winning two Quidditch Cups as part of the team.[10] Harry made many great accomplishments during his early years, such as protecting the Philosopher's Stone from Voldemort and saving Ginny Weasley from the Chamber of Secrets. In his fourth year, Harry won the Triwizard Tournament, though the competition ended in tragedy with the death of Cedric Diggory and the return of Lord Voldemort. The following school year, Harry started Dumbledore's Army and fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, during which he lost his godfather, who was like a father to him.

Harry played a significant role in many other battles of the Second Wizarding War and hunted down and destroyed Voldemort's various Horcruxes with Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. During the Battle of Hogwarts, he witnessed many deaths, including those of Severus Snape and Fred Weasley. He encountered Voldemort and sacrificed himself, knowing the only way to destroy the piece of Voldemort's Soul that was inside him was to sacrifice himself. However, he did not die; he dueled Voldemort one last time, and defeated the Dark Lord. After the war, Harry became an Auror and married his best friend Ron's younger sister, Ginny Weasley, with whom he had three children: James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna. He had felt the effects of the Cruciatus Curse and the Imperius Curse several times. He was also hit by the Killing Curse twice, but managed to survive both times. Harry is also notable for being the only known Master of Death having united the three Deathly Hallows.


Harry is a near-spitting image of his father, having untidy jet black hair, but his brilliant green, almond-shaped eyes are identical to those of his mother. Harry's physique as a boy was described as "small and skinny," with a thin face and knobbly knees, due to his poor quality of life in his childhood. When he was almost eighteen, he was "within an inch" of his father's height, and James was often described as tall. It is likely that as he aged further he would eventually grow as tall or taller than his father. Harry wears round-rimmed glasses, peculiarly similar to his father's glasses.

Upon Harry's forehead, covered by his unruly black hair, is a scar shaped like a lightning bolt. The scar is a result of the failed (and famed) Killing Curse cast on him by Lord Voldemort when he was an infant. It burned painfully whenever Voldemort was near Harry or feeling particularly strong emotions, but this stopped after Voldemort's death.

Harry has also a faint scar on the back of his right hand which says "I must not tell lies." This scar was caused while Harry spent detentions with Dolores Umbridge, who forced him to use a quill that carved the words into the back of his hand.

When possessed by Lord Voldemort at the end of the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Harry's eyes become somewhat glassy green in appearance.


Throughout the books, Harry displays tremendous bravery and strength of character. He willingly went to what he truly believed to be his death at the hands of Lord Voldemort because he believed that this was the only way to defeat the Dark Lord. Harry is also marked by what Hermione Granger once deemed a "saving-people thing" — he will go to great lengths and take great risks in order to help others, particularly his loved ones. Notably, this was taken advantage of by Voldemort in 1996, when he lured Harry to the Department of Mysteries by making him believe that his godfather was in danger. Harry is also very strong-willed, unafraid to stand up for himself and able to resist the Imperius Curse at a young age. Dumbledore once made parallels between Harry's traits and qualities that Salazar Slytherin looked for in his own hand-picked students.

However, Harry has also been accused of being arrogant, in particular by Severus Snape, and can be hot-tempered and impulsive. This can sometimes make him rude to authority figures such as Professor Snape and Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour, and irritable even with his friends. Harry was prone to moodiness at least during his adolescence, though this is likely the result of the great emotional stress and trials he endured during this period. J. K. Rowling has noted that Harry's lack of emotional control is what undermined his ability to learn Occlumency. Despite being clever, Harry also lacked intellectual curiosity, rarely putting forth effort into school work; for example, he relied on the notes of the "Half-Blood Prince" to get ahead in his sixth-year Potions class rather than devoting time to studying. Harry also seems to have a bit of an obsessive personality. During his sixth year, Harry became obsessed with finding out what Malfoy was doing. He pursued Malfoy to the detriment of his other goals such as getting the memory from Slughorn. Also, while searching for the Horcruxes, Harry becomes obsessed with the Deathly Hallows and does not fulfill his duty as the leader of the hunt.

Harry's greatest strength, though, is his great capacity to love, despite having a miserable childhood of neglect. Harry is fiercely loyal to and protective of his loved ones, and that love was what allowed him to overcome Voldemort.

Harry has been known to have very good and nearly always right instincts, as he was right that Draco was up to somethings and that there was a Horcrux in Hogwarts.
