Harry Potter was born on July 31, 1980, to his parents Lily and James Potter. Shortly after his birth he and his parents went into hiding because Voldemort was coming after them, after defying him three times, marking Harry as one of the children that might become the one to defeat the Dark Lord, according to the prophecy made by Sybill Trelawney. They managed to evade until October 31, 1981, when Harry was only a year old. Voldemort found the Potters, thanks to the traitor Peter Pettigrew, and attacked. James tried to fight off Voldemort, but alas James had left his wand on the sofa where they had been sitting before realizing Voldemort had come. With James dead, Lily was upstairs trying to protect Harry from Voldemort, offering her life in exchange of Harry's. Voldemort gave her a choice to leave and let him kill Harry and her life would be spared, but she refused and when Voldemort killed Lily, it created the protection Harry needed to survive the killing curse that Voldemort used upon him.
After the deaths of his parents, and supposibly Voldemort, Harry was taken by Rubeus Hagrid to his aunt and uncle's house, where he lived up until this day. He had been always less than his cousin, who was a little bit older than Harry, and always was given hand me downs from his cousin who was a lot larger than he was. Before his eleventh birthday, his uncle started to move them around because hundreds of letters were pestering them to have Harry know about his magical powers. Finally the second it turns to his birthday, Rebeus Hagird knocks their door down and tells Harry himself, and brings him to Diagon Ally.
Harry first arrived at Hogwarts, already with one friend, and one enemy. Ron Weasley became his friend, and well Draco Malfoy was his enemy. He was sorted into Gryffindor after pleading to not be in Slytherin. Later he became friends with Hermione Granger after saving her from a troll. He also became the seeker being the the first one in a century, since he was a first year. Through the year he found out about the sorceror's stone, and encountered Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest. Near the end of the year, he enters the forbidden corridor and goes through the chambers to find the sorceror's stone. Hermione and Ron leave, because Ron was hurt winning the large chess game so they could go on, and Hermione took Ron to go get Dumbledore. Harry went on and found the sorceror's stone and fought Voldemort and Professor Quirrell. Then he fainted and found out Dumbledore saved him. In his second year, he faught the basilisk and met the large spider Aragog. He stopped Voldemort's return once again.
In his third year he found out about his god father, and Peter Pettigrew. His favorite teacher turned out to be a werewolf and a friend of the supposibly traitorous Sirius Black, who was proved innocent to Harry. Too bad for all of them, Peter Pettigrew escaped and Sirius was captured. He saved Sirius and the hippogriff Buckbeak from worse fate, with the help of Hermione's time turner. In his forth year, he was entered in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, and did surprisingly well. He defeated a dragon, saved two people from certain death at the time, and cleared the tretcherous maze. He saw Cedric die in front of his eyes and was broken. Voldemort returned and Harry fought him. Because of Prior Incantatam he was able to escape because of the twin cores. The next year he and his friends were sufficated by the ministry poking their noses where they shouldn't. He and a few others formed the DA so they could learn DADA, since Umbridge wouldn't teach them. Towards the end of the year Harry and his friends from the DA infiltrated the Ministry in an effort to save Sirius. Little did they know, because they were trying to save Sirius, it ensured his death. During the infilatration was when the Ministry of Magic finally acknowledged Voldemort's return.
This year harry is worried about the elementals, and while disagreeing with the capture and keeping of Draco malfoy in the Room of requirement, he can see the good in it, and has not said anything about it for awhile, since if he did, perhaps they may loose more to the pv's. harry is worried that this whole elemental thing will turn out disastrously, even though many of his friends have been given these powers. he doesn't realize that he is one of these elementals either, and may eventually find out through the accidental use of his powers of darkness. But until that time, he doesn't know, and if asked, he is sure he isn't one.
Harry Potter is impulsive; he likes to act before he thinks, especially when concerning someone that he cares about. He’s been working on this, but there are times when he just can’t help it. It’s as if his brain is on hold, waiting until he is either doing something or has finished doing something to turn back on. It might be because of all he went through that he is just impulsive, seeing as most the time, it saved his life so far, maybe it'll help later.
Harry, though it may not seem like it, has a mean temper. Sometimes he is easily angered, especially when it comes to keeping things from him. Sure, he may understand why you did it; but he’ll feel hurt and angry at the same time. Though he may have more emotions than Ron, Harry doesn’t handle it very well. Usually, when he feels overwhelmed, or betrayed, or more than two emotions at the same time, it ends in anger. However, give him time to cool off, and you’ll find you like him much better.
