A hero is a person noted for their courageous actions. Heroes can be anyone and anywhere. They can be anyone from any walk of life, they have just behaved in an extraordinary way, and usually to help other people. They can be a local hero who perhaps helps to save somebody’s animal or saves a drowning child. Or they can be the main characters in books and films. The hero of a film can be a woman or man who the audience is rooting for. For example, Katniss Everdeen is the hero of the Hunger Games trilogy. She is both the hero of the story and the hero in the courageous sense of the word. She is very brave; she nominates herself for the Hunger Games and takes the place of her younger sister.

Height comparison diagram of Sirius Black compared to related Harry Potter characters

Sirius Black is a powerful wizard. He meets James Potter at Hogwarts, and the two become best friends. He comes from an old wizarding family but rejects their views that pure-blood wizards are more superior, instead fighting against Voldemort during the First Wizarding War. He is Harry’s godfather, but this is not revealed until after Sirius escapes the wizarding prison Azkaban, where he was wrongly imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. He has to live his life as a fugitive as he is considered a dark wizard by the rest of the wizarding world. Harry finds out the truth, and the two continue to communicate in secret. Sirius Black is an Animagus, he can transform himself into a dog, at will.

Sirius Black, portrayed by Gary Oldman, has a height of 5'9" (1.75 m).
