Many different events and characters contributed to the success which Harry achieved during the entire seven-book series in his goal of defeating Lord Voldemort, and saving the wizarding world from the despair it was experiencing. The one thing which helped him the most throughout the series were the friendships which he had made with Ron Weasley and Hermione Ganger. After meeting both during his first year, the three became almost inseparable as they fought various evils throughout Hogwarts and the surrounding areas. The friendships which Harry made during his first six years at Hogwarts gave him the necessary emotional support and strength to fulfill the prophecy required to ?win,' but Ron and Hermione's individual character development is not the primary focus of any of the stories.

[...] One negative personality trait which Harry had throughout the series is that he feels that he is somehow ?responsible' for taking care of all of the ?dirty work' and that he does not need any help in doing so. For example, during the Deathly Hallows, Harry doesn't tell Dumbledore's Army the entire truth of what he is actually searching for as he does not want to get them involved or in the way of danger (Hallows, 580). Somehow though, he learns to be able to give into his friends, and in the end of almost every one of the seven books, owes either his life or someone else's to them being there for him. [...]

[...] The final novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has an abundance of scenes in which both Hermione and Ron help Harry through the darkest stage of the series. Hermione sacrifices her family (modifying their memories and sending them to Australia) in order to both protect them, and to allow her to continue along the path of helping Harry (Hallows, 97). Ron on the other hand gives up finding the Horcruxes, leaving Harry and Hermione to continue fending for themselves. [...]

[...] This compassion also comes with a friendly side, teaching Harry and Ron how to understand a woman's thought process and dating during the Order of the Phoenix (Adney, 110). On the other hand, Hermione's character takes a radical ride through the series, and if one assembled all of the parts together, you would see that she has her own personal story. Hermione's biggest quest is the fair treatment of all magical creatures, first noticed in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. a sign of her moral maturity, Hermione shows concern not just with her own situation, but also for the freedom of others? (Baggett, 54). [...]
