30 Day Character Challenge: Day 26

Hello friends and welcome to the almost end!! Yes, we are almost at the end of this journey!!

26. An underrated character

Every fandom has their character. And I feel like I may get yelled at for this, but oh well.

I feel like Draco Malfoy is severely underrated in some ways. Let me elaborate.

We all are meant to see him as a shit head villain who relentlessly tortured Harry, Ron and Hermione for 6 years. And we do, so J.K Rowling succeeded in that regards. But then there are people like me who really start to feel for him come Half-Blood Prince.

We see him start to kind of change gears after he’s the one now being tortured and mostly controlled by Death Eaters and Voldemort to do something that he definitley doesn’t want to do. And some people see that and have a change of heart, but JK Rowling still kind of puts on the face of him being a bad person.

So I think he’s underrated because he changed and little people see that. I stand by Draco Malfoy!!

    I could say so much about Draco as a character but I really don’t have the time and I’m sure you don’t want an essay in your comments. That said there is so much more to his character than the bully that you see for most of the books, he is much deeper than that and definitely fits this days prompt.

      Yes – thank you for seeing where I am coming from! I know a lot of people they either hate him or they don’t and I feel like we haven’t seen who he really is in any sort of Harry Potter medium.

        Like I say it could be an essay but he is so much more than that guy that bullies the trio and his background is much more complicated than a lot of people give him credit for. I think there is so much more we could learn about him which is maybe why people brush over the complexities and treat him as just the simple character they think he is.
