For all of you who don't read the Potter books, continue to forget important Harry Potter character info, or just want some help preparing for either Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince or Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, then these Potter character profiles may be right up your alley.

Harry Potter Character Info

I don't know how information such as this ends up at FindLaw, but they currently offer a great article that features character summaries on Harry Potter characters such as Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore, Lord Voldemort, Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, Rubeus Hagrid, Draco Malfoy, Lucius Malfoy, the Dursley's, and the Weasley's.

However, be warned if you have not read all five books leading up to Half-Blood Prince, as some of the character summaries do contain some major spoilers. Besides that, the summaries are great and do a nice, and short, job of summing most of the major characters. My only problem with the list is that it should have included Sirius Black, Neville Longbottom, Dean Thomas, Seamus Finnigan, Remus Lupin, plus a couple of other students who really began to shine in Order of the Phoenix.

Here is a sample of some of the Harry Potter character summaries below:

RON WEASLEY: Ron is one of Harry's two best friends at Hogwarts, and a Gryffindor. Tall, with red hair and freckles, he is sometimes envious of Harry's fame, and is embarrassed by his family's lack of wealth. He and Harry stopped speaking for a while after Harry was entered into a magical competition in Book 4, but they made up after Ron realized that Harry was in danger. Ron is deathly afraid of spiders, ever since his older brother turned his teddy bear into one when Ron was a toddler. He's now a Gryffindor prefect, on the Quidditch team, and as always, right there in the thick of things with Harry. There also seems to be a thing developing between him and Hermione Granger.

HERMIONE GRANGER: This Gryffindor, Harry's other best friend, is by far the smartest student of her year. With bushy hair and formerly large teeth (she had them shrunk in Book 4), Hermione can sometimes be a know-it-all but is always a good friend to Harry. She's despised by some - especially Hogwarts student Draco Malfoy, who dislikes Hermione because her parents are Muggles (nonmagical). She tends toward the rule-abiding, and wishes Harry wouldn't be quite so willing to court trouble, but she's always got her wand out, ready to do her part when the time comes.

These character summaries for Harry Potter are a nice resource for all the fans and partial-fans out there. To read all the character summaries for Harry Potter, go to FindLaw
