The Boy Who Lived And Other Character Summaries

Author J.K. Rowling described our hero Harry Potter in several ways throughout the series. He was known as The Chosen One and Undesirable No 1.

From the beginning of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, he was introduced during a celebration in the wizarding world. The darkest wizard of all-time Voldemort had been defeated by a baby, the son of James and Lily Potter. He was hailed and cheered as The Boy Who Lived.

Next to his iconic glasses and lightning scar, this famous four word phrase became one of the most popular ways we memorialize Harry. Yet, other characters in the series weren't bestowed similar nicknames except for the ones that fans give them.

With the thought of Harry's friends, teachers, and villains in mind, I took on a challenge of limiting myself to four words to describe other favorite and least favorite characters. These were my results....

Hermione Granger: The Girl Who Knew
Ron Weasley: The Boy Who Stayed
Draco Malfoy: The Boy Who Reasoned
Fred and George Weasley: The Twins Who Caroused
Ginny Weasley: The Girl Who Survived
Luna Lovegood: The Girl Who Differed
Neville Longbottom: The Boy Who Triumphed
Professor Trelawney: The Girl Who Predicted
Professor McGonagall: The Girl Who Advised
Hagrid: The Keeper Who Protected
Severus Snape: The Boy Who Defended
Lily Potter: The Girl Who Loved
Dumbledore: The Boy of Wisdom
Lord Voldemort: The One Without Love

With four words like The Boy Who Lived, 
how would you describe the characters of Harry Potter?
