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.

Dementor
Series of scaled illustrations comparing the height of Dementor with other related Harry Potter characters

Dementors are large, floating, featureless beings that have no eyes and instead use their ‘mouth’ to sense those around them. Dementors are dark creatures. They feed on human emotions and suck every good feeling from nearby people. Get too close to a Dementor, and you will only remember the most terrible things that have happened to you.

Dementors can administer the Dementor’s ‘kiss’ and suck out a person’s soul, leaving them in a vegetative state for the rest of their life. A Patronus charm is one of the only spells effective at keeping Dementors at bay.

Dementors, designed by Rob Bliss, have heights of 9’10” (3 m).

Collection of drawings of Dementor measured with overall height
