Professor Flitwick Character Analysis

The Charms professor at Hogwarts. Flitwick is a small and cheerful man, though he works Harry's class very hard in preparation for their O.W.L. exams. Because he's loyal to Dumbledore, he feigns incompetence and refuses to get rid of George and Fred's portable swamp until Umbridge leaves the school. He also refuses to do anything about the twins' fireworks.
