Harry Potter | Wizarding World

Harry Potter is a wizard and also the titular character of the Wizarding World. His story begins as he finds this out on his 11th birthday and is enrolled in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry Potter’s story is very complicated because his parents were killed by a dark wizard named Voldemort, who tried to kill Harry too, but his killing spell didn’t work. Voldemort is Harry Potter’s nemesis, and he is very powerful but very evil. He does lots of bad things, and wants to take over the wizarding world, and treat muggles (non magical folk) as second class citizens. Harry Potter has to defeat Voldemort, which is a really long process that takes seven years.
