2nd of May 1998: a date the world of wizardry always remembers with teary eyes. An event not only took their lives by storm but also, marked more than just the Dumbledore’s Army valour. The Battle of Hogwarts indeed ascended beyond the ‘good v/s evil’ factor, and connected the many discrete dots that were prevalent in this magically dark universe, right from the start.
While the Harry Potter literature is in awe of the brave foot put forth by the young, more popular stalwarts such as Neville Longbottom and Ronald Weasley, the unsung heroes unfortunately, have failed to get their share of distinction. So, here’s an ode to the ones whose deeds deserve to be woven into soul-stirring words.
1) Fred Weasley:
The tomfoolery was infused in his DNA to an extent that he made a career out of it! While the budding wizards aspired to take the shots as the Ministers of Magic, Fred and his partner-in-crime twin decided to take the road less taken (or never taken). Their joke shop, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes in Diagon Alley amused us as much as their quirky antics amidst all the chaos.
So, here’s an ode to a wizard who will always be embedded in our hearts for his idiosyncratic sense of humour, and awe-inspiring bravery.
2) Nymphadora Tonks:
An epitome of strength, this one-of-a-kind, half-blood witch left us appalled with her Metamorphmagus skills. Unlike her other female counterparts, she stood like a rock by her husband, and the Order of Phoenix, and was unfortunately killed by her own family- her aunt.
Her righteousness and loyalty are undoubtedly worth a mention.
3) Colin Creevey:
His inclination towards wizards with a celebrity status (read: Harry Potter) was as popular as his old-fangled camera. With the ability to lead a Harry Potter fan base all by himself, his voyeuristic self often led to him incurring Harry or Ron’s wrath.
However, his fierceness and rebellion came into light during the Battle of Hogwarts. Despite being underage, Colin made a sacrifice that captured a million hearts.
