Harry Potter characters you wished were alive till the end!

For everyone who has read Harry Potter have formed an emotional bond with the characters. We all laughed and cheered when Harry won his first Quidditch or when he won the Tri-Wizard Tournament and believe it or not we all cried a little every time we lost our favourite character. Here is a list of all those incredible people that we wished never had died!

Sirius Black

Sirius Black III , also known as Padfoot or Snuffles in his Animagus form, was a pure-blood wizard, the older son of Orion and Walburga Black, as well as the older brother of Regulus by slightly over a year. Although he was the heir of the House of Black, Sirius disagreed with his family's belief in blood purity and defied tradition when he was sorted into Gryffindor instead of Slytherin at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which he attended from 1971 to 1978.

Dobby

Dobby

Dobby was a male house-elf who served the Malfoy family. His masters were Dark Wizards who treated him cruelly. In 1992, he tried to warn Harry Potter of the plot to have the Chamber of Secrets reopened which he came to know via the contact between his masters and Lord Voldemort. Dobby kept hurting himself in numerous ways, e.g. Ironing his hands, and hitting his head against a lamp. He felt this was necessary because he was disobeying his masters, the Malfoy family. At the end of that school year, after Harry had vanquished the memory of Tom Riddle and the basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets, he tricked Lucius Malfoy into freeing Dobby by placing the diary of Tom Riddle inside his own black sock; Lucius disgustedly, separated the book from the sock and threw the sock into the air, where Dobby caught it.

Albus Dumbledore

Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc was the Transfiguration Professor, and later Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Professor Dumbledore also served as Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards and Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot. He was a half-blood wizard, the son of Percival and Kendra Dumbledore, and the elder brother of Aberforth and Ariana. His father died in Azkaban when Dumbledore was young, while his mother and sister were later accidentally killed. His early losses greatly affected him early on, even at his death, but in turn made him a better person. Albus Dumbledore was considered to be the most powerful wizard of his time. He was most famous for his defeat of Gellert Grindelwald, the discovery of the twelve uses of dragon's blood, and his work on alchemy with Nicolas Flamel.

Remus Lupin

Professor Remus John Lupin, Order of Merlin, First Class, also known as Moony, was a half-blood wizard and the only son of Lyall and Hope Lupin. He was afflicted with lycanthropy during his childhood, as Fenrir Greyback's revenge against Lyall. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was Sorted into Gryffindor house. During his school years, he was one of the Marauders, best friends with Sirius Black, James Potter, and Peter Pettigrew. Together they created the Marauder's Map.

Fred Weasley

Fred Weasley was a pure-blood wizard, a son of Arthur Weasley and Molly Weasley (née Prewett), brother to Bill, Charlie, Percy, Ron and Ginny Weasley, and twin brother to George Weasley. Fred's first few years were marked by the height of the the First Wizarding War and when Lord Voldemort fell for the first time. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1989 to 1996 and was sorted into Gryffindor house. Both he and his twin brother were popular students, known for their sense of humour, pranks, and were also Beaters for the Gryffindor Quidditch team. In their seventh year, they joined Dumbledore's Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter.

Nymphadora Tonks

Nymphadora Lupin, more commonly known as Tonks, was a half-blood witch and the only child of Ted and Andromeda Tonks. She was a Metamorphmagus and attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1984 to 1991. She was sorted into Hufflepuff House and was in the same year at Hogwarts as Gryffindor Charlie Weasley.

Hedwig

Hedwig

Hedwig was Harry Potter's pet Snowy Owl. She was a gift to Harry on his eleventh birthday from Rubeus Hagrid, in 1991 and was purchased from Eeylops Owl Emporium. Owls are used by wizards to deliver mail, but Hedwig was also an important companion as Harry was initiated into the wizarding world, and continued to be one of his closest companions until her death in the Battle of the Seven Potters in 1997.

Cedric Diggory

Cedric Diggory was the son of Amos Diggory and his wife. He started attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1989, and was sorted into Hufflepuff. During his time at the school, he was a prefect, and captained the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, playing as Seeker. In his sixth year, Cedric put his name forward to compete in the Triwizard Tournament.

Alastor Moody

Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody was a Scottish wizard of pure-blood descent, considered to be the most famous Auror of modern time. He was also a pivotal member of the Order of the Phoenix during the First and Second Wizarding Wars. Moody served with distinction during the first conflict, gaining a considerable reputation, as well as losing an eye, leg, and part of his nose while fighting the Dark Arts. As a result, Moody became overly-cautious and paranoid about his security.
