Fleur Delacour Character Analysis

The champion from Beauxbatons. She's a beautiful young woman whose beauty shocks many boys, including Ron. Harry later learns that this isn't the fault of the boys; her grandmother was a veela and the core of her wand is actually one of her grandmother's hairs. Though many young men admire her, Fleur never truly warms to Hogwarts. She complains about the weather, the food, and the subpar decorations throughout the year. Fleur spends the first half of the tournament looking down on Harry, but is extremely grateful to him when, during the second task, grindylow attacks make her unable to complete the task and rescue her sister Gabrielle. In all other cases, Fleur appears to be a perfectly competent young witch. She performs poorly in the third task only because Barty Crouch curses her, making it so she has no chance of winning. Harry notices that Fleur takes a liking to Ron's older brother Bill right before the third task and at the end of school, Fleur explains that she's coming to England to work and improve her English.

Chapter Twenty-Six Quotes

"What did you bring her for?"

"Fleur didn't turn up, I couldn't leave her," Harry panted.

"Harry, you prat," said Ron, "you didn't take that song thing seriously, did you? Dumbledore wouldn't have let any of us drown!"

"The song said--"

"It was only to make sure you got back inside the time limit!" said Ron. "I hope you didn't waste time down there acting the hero!"

Harry felt both stupid and annoyed. It was all very well for Ron; he'd been asleep, he hadn't felt how eerie it was down in the lake, surrounded by spear-carrying merpeople who'd looked more than capable of murder.
