From the day Harry went to Hogwarts, to the final battle between him and Voldemort, Harry has had supporters by his side. Now, there are many supporters in the wizarding world, but some aren’t mentioned that often. Here is a list I put together of the ones that are mentioned often throughout the book series. This list doesn’t include creatures and have spoilers.
It was hard to pick between Ron and Hermione for first. She is the only girl in the trio and is the best friend of both Harry and Ron. She helps Harry on his journey from the start ever since they met. Remember when she helped the pack during the Halloween when the troll came? That is an example of her being helpful. Hermione is not only a brave fellow Gryffindor, she is also very intelligent. Her intelligence has helped Harry through many times such as when she figured the potions puzzle in book 1. If she never used her intellect for them to move on, they would not have made it. (She never backs down from a challenge and never gives up (remember S.P.E.W)?
Ron is Harry’s best friend’s a boy. He always got Harry’s back no matter what challenge they face, such as when people were against Harry because they doubted Voldemort’s return. Ron was there by his side and told everyone that Harry was right, even though Ron didn’t see Voldemort’s return. From a family of gingers, Ron is the youngest son of the Weasleys. He has a fear of spiders, but is willing to overcome it.
The only person the Dark Lord fears. Albus Dumbledore is the headmaster of Hogwarts. He protects Harry no matter what the cost is. Dumbledore was the person that brought Harry to the Dursley’s and has helped Harry’s on his journey ever since. He “set” Harry up so he would be ready for the final battle between him and voldemort. Dumbledore was there for Harry when Harry needed help.
All Severus wanted was to protect Harry. People saw him as a “dark person”, but inside, he was a good person. Snape loved Lily Potter, who was Harry’s mom, and when Lily died, Snape was devastated. Snape protects Harry even though he is shown to “hate” Harry and to like Draco. In book 7, the last book; Snape’s true side is revealed.
The friendly giant that supports Harry through trouble times. He has helped the trio through most major parts of the story. He is kind to many people and gives them the support they want. Hagrid has always been nice to Harry.
Harry’s godfather and one of the most important living person. Sirius and Harry has many qualities in common. They both care for the people they love. When they want something, they strive for it, making them both successful with their goals.
Lupin was a friend of James Potter, who is Harry’s father. Lupin was bit by Fenrir and turned into a werewolf. He was the Defense against the Darks Arts teacher in Harry’s third year. Even though it wasn’t clear, Lupin is definitely one of Harry’s favorite Defense against the Darks Arts teacher. Lupin helped Harry with dementors, which was a major thing as the story progresses.
Arthur and Molly Weasley
Arthur and Molly Weasley are the parents of the Weasleys. They treat Harry as if Harry was one of them. They joined the Order of the Phoenix in order to support Harry and help him through the journey to Voldemort. They fought the second wizarding war and dueled against many dark wizards, helping Harry get to Voldemort.
Neville helps Harry with his throughout his journey. He was a fellow DA member and during that time, his bravery as a gryffindor was shown. Neville was a brave person who fought by Harry’s side. A time where Neville helped Harry was when he gave Harry the gillyweed for the second part of the Triwizard Tournament. Neville’s herbology talent was useful and showed later use when he became a Hogwart’s herbology teacher.
