In Harry Potter World there is no dearth of heroic characters. There are Snape, Sirius, Dumbledore, Lupin, Hermione and Harry, who emerged as heroes. But, there were also a few minor characters who were gallant and inspiring. Who, within a short premise won our love, admiration and respect.
All Potterheads know ‘7’ is a magical number. There are 7 books, 7 years of school, 7 Weasley kids, 7 floors at Hogwarts and much more. Let’s talk about 7 minor characters of Harry Potter today whom we love dearly.
Dobby is one of the most loved characters in the Harry Potter series. Though a house elf, but unlike them, he had self-respect. He valued freedom and loyalty. Harry’s little friend was fearless and saved Harry from grave danger not once but several times. This noble hero of Harry Potter was truly A free Elf ’cause of his free spirit.
#2 Aberforth Dumbledore
Aberforth Dumbledore was the younger brother of Albus Dumbledore. Though he had a rocky relationship with his brother, who he blamed for the death of his sister, Aberforth joined the original Order of the Phoenix. He also helped Harry, Hermione, and Ron when they were hunting for Horcruxes and fought against Voldemort in the battle of Hogwarts.
#3 Colin Creevy
Remember the 1st year guy Harry met in the Chamber of Secrets, who was the craziest fan of Harry. He grew up into a brave young man who joined Dumbledore’s Army in his fourth year. Despite being a minor, he fought in the battle of Hogwarts and died a hero.
#4 Charlie Weasley
He may be the least mentioned Weasley, but we definitely love him for how adventures he was. The prefect and the Quiditch captain were also in love with Dragons too. Though considered as one of the most talented seeker in Quiditch, he followed his passion and went to Romania to study on Dragons. Also, he was a part of the second Order of the Phoenix and fought in the Battle of Hogwarts.
#5 Regulus Black
We all love Sirius Black. The only Black Gryffindor. But, his brother Regulus was as courageous as his elder brother. Though he joined death eaters at a very young age to make his family proud. But soon after he realized his mistake, the young boy took an exceptional route to undo the mistake he has committed. The brave soul didn’t think twice to sacrifice his life for the sake of truth and good.
#6 Lily Potter
It’s hard to believe she never made a physical appearance in the series (She appeared as a ghost in The Goblet of Fire and The Deathly Hallows). Even though she was not present, Lilly is definitely one of our favorites. She was an active part of the first Order of the Phoenix and she sacrificed herself while fighting with Voldemort to save Harry.
#7 James Potter
Like his wife, James Potter also did not have a physical appearance in the series. He was a brat in his school life, but he matured and decided to fight against the death eaters. Like his wife Lily, he died saving Harry from Voldemort.
