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.

He began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he became friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, and got into a lot of trouble. Harry has a white owl called Hedwig.

Gilderoy Lockhart
Scaled height comparison illustration of Gilderoy Lockhart in relation to other Harry Potter characters

Gilderoy Lockhart teaches Defence Against the Dark Arts during Harry Potter’s second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is a celebrity in the wizarding world and has written many books about his adventures encountering the Dark Arts. He acts as a very talented wizard, but in truth, he is a bit of a fool. The only thing he is really good at is performing memory spells, which he uses on witches and wizards to make them forget their heroic acts, using their stories as his own. He is vain and self-centered. His favourite colour is lilac.

Gilderoy Lockhart, portrayed by Kenneth Branagh, has a height of 5'10" (1.78 m).
