The fallen heroes of harry potter

Severus Snape

He was the epitome of everything everyone hated in the story; pretty much the invincible school bully seeing as they couldn’t outright defy a teacher. He’s flawed, he hated the Marauders with every fiber of his being and projected some of that hate onto Harry. And yet in spite of that, it was his love for Lily that drove him forward.

Snape was summoned by Voldemort to the Shrieking Shack. Voldemort explains that he believes that Snape is the master of the Elder Wand from killing Dumbledore and that Snape must due so that the elder wand can be his. Snape tries to explain the situation but Voldemort has Nagini kill Snape by biting into his neck before he can finish. Before dying, Snape released a cloud of memories and told Harry, who had watched the entire scene from a hidden spot, to take them. Harry later took the memories to the Pensieve in Dumbledore’s office. From these memories, Harry learned all about Snape’s past. In the first scene, Harry discovered that Snape had befriended Lily as a nine-year-old child when they lived near each other.


He had a good, I mean great heart. He try end to save Harry, Ron, hermione, Ron, and every else there and he was stabbed by bellatrix. At least he has a proper burial at shell cottageM+1Here lies Dobby, a free elf. This was really sad because he was one of the characters who had complete loyalty to Harry and fought with him to the end.

Sirius Black

Sirius’ life was turned upside down when he found James’ and Lily’s dead bodies. His best friend, Pettigrew, betrayed them all, and his other best friend, Lupin, believed him to be guilty of murder.For twelve years, Sirius was pent up in Azkaban, having the life sucked away from him by the Dementors. He should have been partying with friends, staying up late and having a laugh, when instead he was left to rot in a cell. Second, he has had a tough life. Between being disowned by his family, seeing two of his best friends dead, being blamed for that, being away from his godson for so long (and it seems to me that Sirius adores Harry) and spending 12 years in Azkaban his life seems pretty difficult. That seems like enough tragedy for 5 lifetimes. Also, Harry and Sirius both deserved to be happy. They needed each other. It’s a shame that Sirius died before he could be happy for the first time in over 13 years.

Come on, you can do better than that!… And Harry saw the look of mingled fear and surprise on his godfather’s wasted, once-handsome face as he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind and then fell back into place.—Sirius’s last words and death by falling through the veil

Fred Weasley

Fred was only 20 when he died. He died fighting against evil. He was so brave, and he died laughing! Fred is my favourite character in the series. I absolutely love Fred, so much that after a year that he died, you could still find me reading that section in the book and shedding tears! He lived an amazing life, fulfilled his dream of opening a joke shop along with George and was a very successful businessman when he died


Hedwig was Harry’s first real companion before his full initiation to the wizarding world. This gives her an incredibly important role within Harry’s life, as he never before had a friend, or even a pet, to speak of. Hedwig remained one of Harry’s closest companions until her death during the Battle of the Seven Potters, in which she was struck by The Killing Curse while attempting to protect Harry from swarming Death Eaters

Nymphadora Tonks & Remus Lupin – Image result for nymphadora tonks remus lupin

The Lupins are married and finally settle into their own happiness, even with the world falling down around them due to Voldemort’s return. They have a baby named Teddy, in honor of Tonks’ father; but as events turn bleak during Deathly Hallows, Remus does not appear to be himself. In one particularly alarming confrontation with Harry, Remus is compelled to run from his family to aid Harry and The Order, clearly out of concern for his loved ones – but, at this point in Remus’ story, he was also battling with his inner demons, his sense of self-worth, and a fearful adjustment to his new responsibilities. Lupin and Tonks both meet their deaths, but Tonks’ demise is perhaps the most tragica of all. Her death could have been easily avoided had she stayed with Teddy; but in her death we see that that if she can’t live with Lupin, she can’t live at all.

Mad-Eye served as a watchful protector to Harry with a curmudgeonous yet authoritative presence during their time together. Mad-Eye knew that might lose his life over his will to protect Harry at any cost, and in the end, he met that cause face-to-face without hesitancy.

Lavender Brown

Lavender fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, during which she fell from a balcony and was attacked by the werewolf Fenrir Greyback. Rushing to her aid, Hermione blasted Greyback away from her with a powerful spell, and Professor Trelawney dropped a crystal ball on his head. Immediately after the attack she was seen feebly stirring, but later died from her injuries

Lily J. Potter

Lily’s death was a pure loving sacrifice (she intended to die, and was not hoping to save herself) Harry was marked with the protection of her love. Voldemort’s Killing Curse rebounded off the one-year old. The rebounded curse destroyed the Dark Lord’s body and temporarily defeating him. Harry was left unscathed, except for a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead. Thus, Harry became known as the “Boy Who Lived” and his fate was sealed. If not for Snape’s love for Lily, which led to him to beg Voldemort for Lily’s life, her death would not have been a willing sacrifice, and there would have been no Boy Who Lived.

James Potter

James told Lily to take Harry and run. After his wife and son were out of the room, he stood to face the most dangerous Dark wizard of all time on his own, in order to give his wife and child time to escape the cottage. However, James had mistakenly left his wand in the living room, where he had been entertaining his young son with it before Voldemort’s arrival. As a result, Voldemort effortlessly murdered him with the Killing Curse – James “fell like a marionette whose strings were cut

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore

Dumbledore’s right hand was scarred when he donned Marvolo Gaunt’s Ring, which was cursed. Had Severus Snape not intervened with a counter-curse, Dumbledore would have died much more quickly. Regardless, the curse left his hand blackened and dead-looking, and no amount of healing could repair the appearance. According to Snape, the curse would eventually spread itself from the contained hand, and Dumbledore was doomed to die in no more than one year’s time. Whether this means the blackening dead-look appearance would spread throughout the entire body is unknown.

Death, however, served to restore him to full health and strength: his spirit was described as walking sprightly and upright, with hands that were both whole and white and undamaged, and looking exactly how Harry remembered him to be.

Cedric Diggory

Cedric’s death was widely felt throughout the school, and on 26 June the Leaving Feast was turned into a memorial for him, with black banners replacing the house colours. Dumbledore delivered a tribute to Cedric, and relayed the events that had led to his death to the student body, telling them, against the explicit wishes of the Ministry of Magic, that the young Hufflepuff had been murdered by Lord Voldemort himself
