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
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.
