As the series progresses, these flaws become what give Snape’s character a relatable and distinctly human quality. Snape’s bitterness and rage are the products of ridicule and abuse sustained by the father, godfather, and mentor of the story’s hero Harry, as well as the unrequited love of Harry’s mother who’s memory and interests Snape defends until death.
