Harry Potter, the main character of the book, is in the middle of the biggest wizarding war of history. The darkest wizard, Voldemort, wants to kill Harry, and then take over the entire wizarding world!

After they make the arrival to her vault and find the Horcrux they were looking for, they find that Griphook has betrayed them. He locks them in the vault and attempts to steal the Horcrux, but evidently fails. Harry and his friends begin to learn that even though they are doing the wizarding world great deeds, it’s extremely tiresome. But they do it anyways, because they can’t let everyone down. When Harry understands what must me done, he doesn’t try to tell any of his friends that he’s allowing Voldemort to kill him, Harry doesn’t want any of them to try and stop him. But, what Harry doesn’t understand, is that by accepting the fact that he’s about to die, it only makes him stronger. Harry is making this decision to protect his friends, he’s sick of people dying, he just wants the war to be over. “I didn’t want you to die,” Harry said.
