He even admitted he thought her to be pure-blood. When Harry contradicts him by saying that the best witch in their year is of a muggle-born origin, Slughorn comments: “funny how that sometimes happens” which forms a negative impression about the professor. This class is loathed by pure-bloods. They are the main aim of the Death Eaters and other fanatical pure-blood families.

As the years went on and Harry realized how serious things had gotten between him and Voldemort, he heavily relied on friends and teachers, and also on his wizarding ability, and his vast knowledge of spells. Harry always relied on his friends, who were with him to the end, and he always had help from Dumbledore and the other teachers. Harry defeated Voldemort multiple times, despite only being a teenager. Harry even sacrificed his own life to protect the ones he loved. Harry survived the killing curse once again, and was then able to defeat Voldemort in the final battle.
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, acts of ruse play a critical role in the life of the megalomaniac and egocentric Claudius. Being extremely heartless and selfish, he betrays his family and peers countless times solely to remain as the royal leader of Denmark. Initially, Claudius appears to be an innocent king with solely good intentions for his state and his family. Although he lacks apathy towards Hamlet mourning his father’s death, as shown when he advises him, “Tis unmanly grief,” he seems to only say it out of “fatherly” advice (I.ii.98). However, a read flag goes up when a ghost, alleging to be Hamlet’s father, tells him Claudius poisoned his father, which is also Claudius’ own brother, in order to become king.
He was raised in an orphanage, after his father left his pregnant mother and his mother died in childbirth. He caused many problems with the other children because of his ability to use magic, until the age of 11 when Professor Dumbledore came to offer him a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a very bright child and thrived at his new school, earning respect from teachers and finding the many secrets of the castle, though never truly having friends. At around the age of 15 he began to focus on his new goals: to become the most powerful wizard of all time, to kill or remove all muggle-borns from the wizarding society, and to become immortal. He changed his name to Lord Voldemort and set out to make 7 Horcruxes, each housing a small part of his soul.
He did join Voldamort in the first Wizarding War. After the love of his life, Lily, died, he join the good side and became a double agent.

Even though he is seen as evil in the last two books, after killing the much loved Dumbledore, he is seen as a loyal and good wizard and is respected by all those who knew him.
Even though Achebe sets Okonkwo to his downfall, it is evident that Okonkwo is a great hero despite his rash behavior and temper. Generally, a tragic hero is born into royalty and has already attained the noble status. However, Okonkwo was born into a poor family, and according to Okonkwo his father was “weak and feminine”. Regardless his father’s failures Okonkwo acquires respect in the Igbo society by defeating a great wrestler: As a young man of eighteen he had brought honor to his village by throwing Amalinze the Cat. (1) Okonkwo furthermore spends his hours toiling away in an attempt to earn his way up in the patriarchal society.
In short, he is corruption personified. As Sarra Suleri argues: “the Iskander Harappa of Rushdie’s narrative is indeed treacherous, a figure disquietingly seamless in its available glamor. He is rarely allowed to leave the bedroom or the dinner table, where he is invariably accompanied by lovers, insults, and a daughter known as Virgin iron-pants”(148). At one level in the book Rushdie, in an ironic twist, plays Harappa’s motto “the question of national stability is no joke” (187) against the narrator’s statement that “sex drive is the top national priority” (184). Antithetical as they sound, these two statements betray the deceitful nature of Pakistani politics.
