Ginny Weasley Character Analysis

The youngest Weasley child. She and Harry had a brief romance at the end of last year, though Harry broke it off as to not put Ginny in danger when he decided to leave school and hunt for the Horcruxes. Despite being officially broken up, both of them still harbor feelings for each other, and Ginny orchestrates several moments prior to Bill and Fleur's wedding when they can be alone together. At Hogwarts, Ginny is active in Dumbledore's Army resistance efforts and gets into a lot of trouble for her activism. She believes in fighting Voldemort in every way possible and resents that she's not yet of age and so she can't join the Order of the Phoenix and fight Voldemort properly. She takes issue especially with Mrs. Weasley, who often tries to keep Ginny from participating in anything remotely dangerous. As adults, Ginny and Harry get married and have three children.
