“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light”-Albus Dumbledore. The Harry Potter series, in the opinions of millions, is one of the best book series ever written. There are many characters, alike and different, but we are going to focus on two of the most important of those characters today, Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, from the Harry Potter series, by JK Rowling, who are not portrayed as friends, or similar people, or alike, but are actually quite alike in some ways. They are both determined, and they both have a ‘task’ they need to do but might not actually want to do, and also how they are different, being the fact that they are on two different sides, good and evil.

For example, Harry was determined to do the Triwizard Tournament (a dangerous competition between three wizarding schools) after the Goblet of Fire produced his name as a fourth contestant, even though he was underage and might not be able to complete the task, this shows a lot of determination, because through the whole thing, he never gave up. . Adding to that, Harry felt a need to save his godfather when he had a good reason to believe that Lord Voldemort was holding him captive, and would stop at nothing to do it, even if that means getting expelled from Hogwarts. Also, Draco is determined as well, although he wanted to do a bit different things than Harry. He was determined to finish his task (to kill Albus Dumbledore) without help from professor Snape.

He was always rude to Harry, Ron and Hermione, for example, he called Hermione a “Filthy little Mudblood” Which is an insult for a wizard born from a non-wizard family, which just goes to show that he was being purposely rude to them. More importantly,, In The Chamber of Secrets, Draco said he wished he knew who the heir to Slytherin was so he could help them open the Chamber of Secrets, which is definitely not exactly a good thing to want to do, because that means he wants to ‘purge’ the school of all Mudbloods. So, although both are alike, they obviously have their differences, as does
