Best Minor Characters in Harry Potter

We all sing praises to Harry, Ron, and Hermoine. But, what about the small characters who did work outside the scenes? It’s time we gave them their praise.

Mrs. Figg

Charged to protect Harry as a child. A squib who dedicated the bulk of her life to guiding and protecting a young prophet incognito! Let’s give her some flowers!


Neville Longbottom

Yes, prominently featured in the films and throughout the books, but discounted for his greatness. He was a witness for it all, and played a pivotal part in the downfall of Voldemort from the very beginning. Young fat Neville was a better wizard than Ron Weasley, quote me on that!


Sybill Trelawney

As ‘LOONY’ as she was, Trelawney set the tone for the Horcruxes being noticed and found. Yes, she was batshit crazy in the eyes of 15 year old's, but she was RIGHT. Harry had an omen that needed to be read and she caught it almost immediately. SHOUT OUT to my favorite seer.


Molly Weasley

Listen, this is this world’s best mother. Without her care and sympathy, Harry doesn’t have a safe place, and The Burrow is that!


Dean Thomas/Seamus Finnigan

They are almost a comedy duo. If you are a bookreader you know that they both have more layers to them than the film provides. But, like Merry and Pippin, these two friends are the light-hearted heroes that Harry, Ron, and Hermione need.


Bellatrix Lestrange

We all know that every film needs a bad bitch, but what about a ‘bad witch’? Another character you love to hate that drives this story. She is dedicated to the Dark Lord and gives us another challenge that this amazing story needs
