The bad guys in Harry Potter
The characters in Harry Potter are capable of making us feel deep feelings that link us with the books of the saga. Each character is unique and endearing: Ron is sometimes distracted but touching, Snape is intriguing by his open but incomprehensible (until a certain moment) contempt for Harry and Dobby how to say…. is crazy but adorable !
Same thing when it comes to the bad guys: some are the embodiment of evil and others are just a little weird like Argus Filch whose behavior is quite strange. Among the bad guys we can note:
From The Mary Sue
Professor Umbridgeone of the most hated characters in the series. And even if everyone loves cats, at her place it's just weird…. Her decision to fire Professor Trelawney and her behavior towards the centaur Bane but also towards Harry and his friends shows how selfish she is in all her bright pink clothes. During her time at the Ministry, she was particularly cruel to Muggles and confirmed her status as a villain. And she is inspiredée of a character réel!
From Harry Potter wiki
Lucius Malfoy: Draco's father is not someone who inspires sympathy. The way he treats Dobby but also everyone he considers inferior to him is unpleasant and contemptuous to say the least. Like his son and his wife. Lucius Malfoy thinks that Muggles are not worth wizards and he despises people like Arthur Weasley who care. He is also responsible for Ginny Weasley's misadventures, bewitched by Lord Voldemort's Horcrux while she uses the latter's diary that Lucius Malfoy slipped into his school affairs. When Lord Voldermort returns thanks to Pettigrew, Lucius Malfoy supports him and offers him his support and that of his son whom he introduces among the Death Eaters.
Bellatrix Lestrange: Faithful Death Eater, she is devoted body and soul to Lord Voldemort in the hope that he will recognize his loyalty. This devotion led her to kill and torture Neville’s parents to the point of driving them mad with the Sore Curse. His unwavering loyalty is frightening and reflects his misunderstanding and disdain for anything that is not noble enough for a wizard like marrying a Muggle or not supporting Lord Voldermort.
