The gamekeeper at Hogwarts. He's half giant and a member of the Order of the Phoenix. Hagrid and Harry have been close friends since Harry started at Hogwarts: Hagrid was the one tasked with introducing Harry to the magical world and after Voldemort murdered Harry's parents, Hagrid brought baby Harry to the Dursleys. Though Hagrid is unwaveringly loyal to Harry and to fighting Voldemort, he has several quirks that make fighting evil more difficult in practice. He was expelled from Hogwarts as a child but keeps his broken wand concealed in a pink umbrella; because of this, his magic is rudimentary at best and dangerous at worst. Hagrid also adores animals, especially if they're dangerous or misunderstood, which leads him to try to call the Order of the Phoenix off of killing the giant spiders that live in the Forbidden Forest and who joined Voldemort. Hagrid expresses his loyalty in ways that also undermine his intentions, as when he throws a "support Harry Potter" party at Hogwarts and goes on the run to escape Death Eaters. He fights in the final battle at Hogwarts alongside his giant half-brother, Grawp, and is distraught when Voldemort forces him to carry Harry's body out of the Forbidden Forest.
