Harry Potter often seemed to be thrust into the spotlight against his wishes. The Triwizard Tournament was a perfect example of that. Harry was quite content to have a quiet year at Hogwarts but instead he found himself in the limelight as a champion. If that wasn’t enough, he was also competing against students who were older than him and had more knowledge too. Harry was certainly the underdog. However, he still managed to rise to the occasion. From playing to his strengths in the first task by flying, to acting as a hero in the second, to eventually winning the tournament (with a little help).
If you’re someone who has found themselves in over their head but managed to not only survive but thrive, then you’re most like Harry. Whether that’s because you’ve found yourself in a job you’re not quite qualified for, or as part of a sports team with more experience. People may not initially believe that you’re going to go far – but you soon prove them wrong.
Cedric Diggory was a very popular young man – even before becoming a Hogwarts Triwizard champion. He was a star Quidditch Player, a Hufflepuff Prefect, a good-looking boy (who was never without interest) and to top it all off, he had a lovely personality. The fact that he was willing to share the glory of being the winner of the Triwizard Tournament with Harry says it all really. Cedric Diggory was about as close to perfect as you can get, so it is no wonder than he was a popular superstar.
If this sounds anything like you (though we imagine you’re too modest to say so), then you’re most like Cedric. You’re probably someone who seems to excel at everything they do, whether that’s work, school, sport or relationships but you haven’t got an inflated ego. Though it would be easy to think that people are often jealous of you, your charming personality always wins them round.
Are you someone who believes that actions speak louder than words? Do you struggle to think of witty retorts or get all in a muddle? Are you known for daring endeavours that people still talk about? Then you’re most like Viktor Krum.
Krum was a man of few words, but his actions said it all. Though he may have struggled to think of an opening line to say to Hermione (and ended up hanging out in the library much more than he planned to as a result), when he finally caught her attention, his deeds were what made her feel truly special. Not only did he rescue her during the second task but did so while half-Transfigured as a shark. And while his spell wasn’t completely successful, the complicated nature of that particular piece of magic can’t be underestimated. Furthermore, his performance in the Quidditch World Cup was nothing short of spectacular. He made a real statement when he decided to catch the Snitch, despite knowing Bulgaria would lose.
Fleur Delacour was one impressive witch. As the Triwizard champion for Beauxbatons she more than held her own. Her fierceness during tasks also spilled over into her day-to-day persona. Fleur could be blunt – like when she referred to Harry as a ‘little boy’, or when Ron asked her to the Yule Ball and she responded by looking at him as if he were a ‘sea slug’. But Fleur did have a softer side. Whether it was her saccharine romance with her husband Bill Weasley, her fierce loyalty towards her sister or her warmth towards Harry after he ‘saved’ Gabrielle in the second task, Fleur cared incredibly deeply for those she loved.
So, if you’re someone who is known for being blunt, can be a little bit tactless but your heart is very much in the right place, you’re most like Fleur. We imagine that behind your icy exterior lies a warm and loving person who cares very deeply.
