We all have our favourite harry potter characters.
Is yours Harry? Hermoine? Ron? Perhaps you’ve ventured over to the dark side and you’re into arm-licking horrific tattoeos that voldemort dishes out to his followers.
From personal experience, Ron seems to be a favourite among many people i’ve had discussions with. Harry is surprisingly quite far down the list for most people.
The character we’ve all neglected
We’ve all gone through the entire Harry Potter Saga and neglected one character that brings so much to the wizarding world. In some films, he only has a very small part, if anything, but in others, he brings heaps of personality and enriches the film through his father-figure demeanor.
The Harry potter character i’m talking about is, ofcourse, Rubius Hagrid!
Keeper of keys at Hogwarts School of Witchcrat and Wizardry.
Here are eight reasons why Hagrid is one of the best harry potter characters.
He’s a great friend and a loyal protector
Whether he’s standing up for Potter or travelling to far-flung fields of the earth for Albus Dumbledore, Hagrid has proven time and time again that he’s a loyal friend. He’d put everything on the line for his job and risk his own life for the sake of his friends. Terrific traits for one of the best Harry Potter Characters.
He’s kind, caring and loving
You could be a stranger, or a giant freaking spider, Hagrid will treat you the same way. He sticks up for those that are too small or weak to stand up for themselves and he cares for animals that others would rather squish. Generally speaking, he’s super kind and caring towards anyone and anything!
He has awesome pets
On the topic of Hagrid being kind and caring towards the wizarding worlds magical creatures. Hagrid owns freakishly wonderful pets. From dragons to a three-headed dog and a hippogriff? If you don’t think these are awesome, there’s something wrong with you! Hedwig doesn’t have a chance compared to these quirky beasts!
He’s always a gent, and gives the best hugs
Imagine what a cuddle from a giant, friendly bear would be like. That’s exaclty what it must feel like to cuddle Hagrid (Not that I know what an actual bear hug fells like!). Who doesn’t love a good hugger?
He’s also a gentleman. A date with Hagrid would include the sweetest things like moonlight dancing and romantic walks in the forbidden forest. He’s always a gent when it comes to the ladies and I’m sure girls can appreciate that.
He’s dishes the dirt, even when he’s not meant to
How many times have you heard Hagrid say “I should not have said that”. He gives the best advice even when he doesn’t want to! Anytime the trio are looking for clues to a problem, they know they can rely on Hagrid to drop some precious gems that’ll lead to a solution.
He never forgets birthdays
Without the assistance of modern technology, Hagrid remembered Harry’s birthday when nobody else did. He’s thoughtful, kind and caring. And he can bake! That cake looks soooooo good. I could picture myself dumping my face into that scrumptious icing (kind like what Dudley did to it, but worse).
He’s sentimental and open-minded
Hagrid is totally open-minded about people, ideas and things. Hagrid really doesn’t care about your status of where you come from, and that’s something that a lot of people could learn.
He’s also sentimental. The epitome of a gentle giant. He may look hard and scary but he’s a mushy softie on the insides. He wells up when saying goodbye, cries when his pets pass away and just isn’t afraid to reveal his true feelings about things.
