Cedric Diggory Character Analysis

A tall and handsome fifth-year in Hufflepuff; he's the new Quidditch captain and Seeker on their team. Girls find him charming, while Fred Weasley insists that Diggory isn't very smart. He does prove himself extremely honorable during the Quidditch match with Gryffindor: when he catches the Snitch while the dementors attack Harry, he pushes for a rematch and tries to forfeit Hufflepuff's win.
