Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone Main Characters

Posted: March 26, 2012 in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone


Harry Potter

Harry Potter is the main character in The Philosopher’s Stone. The whole story revolves around him and his adventures. He is definitely the protagonist of the story. Harry has a scar on his forhead which he got from his first encounter with his nemesis, Lord Voldemort. As he matures, he shows himself to be caring and shrewd, a loyal friend, and an excellent Quidditch player.


Ron Weasly

Ron is a shy, modest boy who comes from a poor wizard family. Ron is Harry’s first friend at Hogwarts, and they become close. He is very loyal and helps Harry throughout their adventures. Ron’s mediocrity despite his wizard background reminds us that success at Hogwarts is based solely on talent and hard work, not on family connections. Ron’s willingness to be beaten up by the chess queen shows how selfless and generous he is.


Hermione Granger 

Initially an annoying goody-two-shoes who studies too much and obeys the school rules too much. Hermione eventually becomes friendly with Harry after she learns to value friendship over perfectionism and obedience. She comes from a purely Muggle family, and her character illustrates the social-adjustment problems often faced by new students at Hogwarts.
