Harry Potter is both a novel series as well as a film franchise that was released in the late 1990s and into the 2000s. The basic premise of this magical series is that a young wizard by the name of Harry Potter was able to evade and also defeat the Dark Lord, or at least he lost his physical form. A decade passed and Harry was raised as a regular muggle, and on his eleventh birthday, he was reintroduced into the magical world.
Although Harry had a lot of happy and pleasant memories at Hogwarts, including joining the Quidditch team and meeting Ron and Hermione, he was also faced with some unfortunate truths. Firstly, the reality of what happened to his parents that night in Godric's Hollow. From there he learned all about Lord Voldemort, and Harry had faced him in many forms leading up to his return to the physical world.
However, Lord Voldemort was not the only antagonist from the Harry Potter franchise. He had an entire force that supported him and his dark magic, including the Malfoy family and several other notable characters (i.e Bellatrix Lestrange). And who could forget Dolores Umbridge, the Senior Undersecretary to the Minister for Magic who had a fascination for kittens and the color pink.
Pick a Hogwarts house:
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a magical institution in Britain. Witches and wizards receive letters to attend this school when they are eleven years old, and study magic in all different forms for a total of seven years. Upon their first arrival at the school, each first-year student attends the sorting hat ceremony. The hat places them in one of the four houses: Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Gryffindor. The hat determines which house each witch or wizard would do the best in (taking into account their personality traits).
Pick a class to teach:
As it was mentioned before, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a magical institution where witches and wizards learn a variety of different kinds of magic. In the first few years of their studies, they take a lot of required/core courses which essentially teaches them the basics of magic. This includes Transfiguration, Charms, Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts and Flying. As they get older, there is more freedom to take classes that interest them or would be essential to learn for their future jobs.
Pick a defensive spell:
There are a lot of things the students learn in their seven years at school. Defense Against the Dark Arts is one of the core classes that the students take each new year. It's also the class that was presumed to have been jinxed by Tom Riddle, so that there would be a new professor each year. This proved to be the case when Harry, Ron, and Hermione were in school. Their first year they had Professor Quirrell teach, then Professor Lockhart, followed by Professor Lupin, and so on.
Pick a location:
There are many different places and locations that the characters travel to or visit in the entire Harry Potter franchise. For the most part, the bulk of the events take place during the school year at Hogwarts. Each installment in the series usually begins with Harry back at his aunt and uncle's house on Privet Drive, but there are some instances where he spends time at The Burrow with the Weasley family. He's also been to The Leaky Cauldron when he ran away from home, and at the secret location of the Order of the Phoenix.
Pick a magical family:
The Harry Potter franchise has a lot of magical families which are either introduced in the first installment, or somewhere throughout the series. There are a few muggles or non-magical characters, for example, the Dursleys who had raised Harry since he was an infant. Status in some magical families is very important. Take the Malfoy family for example - they are firm believers on the importance of purity in the family. This is part of the reason why Draco was so unkind to Hermione.
Pick a department in the Ministry of Magic:
The Ministry of Magic is the ruling government of the wizarding world in terms of Britain. There were other magical governments for different parts of the word, such as The Magical Congress, which is seen in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Essentially the Ministry is responsible for instilling the rules and regulations in all things magic. There are a number of departments, and Ron's father actually worked for the Ministry as did his older brother Percy. Harry had his hearing at the Ministry following a dementor attack.
Pick a horcrux:
A Horcrux is just one of the many magical objects/relics that have been introduced in the wizarding world. Unlike some of the others that have been or will be mentioned in this quiz, a Horcrux is considered a very dark and dangerous thing. It is essentially a hidden place for a dark witch or wizard to stow away a sliver of their soul for the purpose of maintaining immortality. Lord Voldemort had managed to create seven Horcruxes altogether so it was much harder to get rid of him.
Pick a dark witch:
There are several antagonist/villains who are introduced in the Harry Potter franchise. For the most part these characters had sworn allegiance to Lord Voldemort and were merely "soldiers" or loyal allies to further his cause. There are a few that had their own personal agendas, however. For example, Dolores Umbridge. It was never specifically stated she was aligned with the Dark Lord, even though she had worn one his Horcruxes for some time. She was fighting to "purify" the witches and wizards by getting rid of any muggle-borns.
Pick a powerful object:
Here is another question that pertains to the magical objects that had been featured in the Harry Potter franchise. For the most part these objects are all considered to be ancient/sacred relics, some of which belonged to the Peverell family from the witch legend "The Tale of the Three Brothers." This legend states that these brothers were given gifts, such as The Invisibility Cloak, The Resurrection Stone, and the infamous Elder Wand. The Sword of Gryffindor had belonged to the founder of the Gryffindor house.
Pick a type of wand core:
Wands are a very important piece when it comes to performing magic. It was stated in the series that only the most powerful witches/wizards could perform a spell without the use of a wand. Prior to attending their first year at Hogwarts, every witch and wizards visits the wand shop called "Ollivanders" in Diagon Alley. Instead of the witch or wizard selecting their own wands, the wands "choose" them. Its a process of elimination, and sometimes takes a few tries until the owner gets it right.
Pick a magical creature:
There are quite a few different magical creatures that make an appearance throughout the Harry Potter franchise. Most of them were seen at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. For example, the Hippogriff was a magical creature that was studied in the class Care of Magical Creatures which was taught by Hagrid himself. Other creatures are far less tame or pleasant to be around. For example, the Basilisk which was introduced in Chamber of Secrets, a serpent-like creature that petrified a number of students.
Pick a curse:
As has been mentioned previously in this quiz, the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry learn a lot of different things in their seven years. As the witches and wizards get older and stray from the basics of magic, they begin to learn more serious and sophisticated spells. In Defense Against the Dark Arts during their fourth year, Professor Alastor Moody (who was really Barty Crouch Jr.), had decided it was necessary to teach the students about the unforgivable curses.
Pick an Animagus form:
Being an Animagus is a specific form of Transfiguration that not all witches or wizards are capable of doing. The process of acquiring the skills to be able to transform the body into an animal is both strenuous and dangerous. Therefore, not a lot of people in the wizarding world had bothered to gain such knowledge. The first Animagus that was introduced in the franchise was Professor McGonagall, who could turn herself into a cat. She also happened to be the professor of Transfiguration at Hogwarts.
Pick a wizard organization:
Surprisingly enough there are quite a few different wizard organizations that are introduced or created in the Harry Potter franchise. Some of these organizations are merely self-made by a group of students who had come together to fight against or promote a cause. Others are far more legitimate and are known by other witches and wizards outside of said organization. The Order of the Phoenix was quite unique in the fact that it had members from two different generations, although some both fought in the first and second wizarding war.
Pick a unique magical ability:
Similar to the question that referenced a witch or wizard's ability to become an Animagus, there were many other abilities/traits that a person could inherit. For example, a Metamorphmagus is also another form of transformation similar to the Animagus. However, instead of learning and studying to become one, a Metamorphmagus is a witch/wizard who is born with the natural ability to be able to transform their appearance into whatever they so choose. Tonks is an example of a Metamorphmagus, in which she is often seen changing the color of her hair.
Pick a potion:
Similar to charms and spells, potions are also frequently used as well as taught in the Harry Potter franchise. Potions also happens to be one of the core classes that students are required to take (at least in younger years). As they get older and depending on their performance in their O.W.L.s, a student may also take Advanced Potions. During the first few years, Professor Snape was the Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, Slughorn returned in later years to teach Advanced Potions.
Pick a Slytherin student:
Slytherin is one of the four houses that makes up Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Those who are sorted into Slytherin have a bit of a reputation, or are at least stereotyped as being "bad." Students placed in this house have specific personality traits that include being cunning, ambitious, and resourceful. Sometimes these traits are put to the extreme, which often leads to them being perceived as negative. A majority of the antagonists from the Harry Potter franchise come from this specific house.
Pick a Hogwarts location:
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is quite large. Not only that, it's deemed to be mystical and mysterious to the point some of the professors and even Headmaster claimed they hadn't explored every inch of the castle. There are a number of hidden passageways, rooms, and even staircases that are always changing or moving. The Room of Requirement is a perfect example of this, specifically in the movie The Order of the Phoenix. Harry needed a secret place to teach his students Defense Against the Dark Arts, and the room was the place to do it.
Pick a dark wizard:
Quite like how there are a number of dark witches included in the Harry Potter franchise, there are also a number of dark wizards. The most obvious candidate for being a dark wizard would be the Dark Lord himself, otherwise known as Lord Voldemort (or Tom Riddle to those who knew him as a student). He was known in the wizarding world as being ruthless and powerful, so much so many refused to even speak his name because they were so afraid.
Pick a character to betray:
With each new installment in the Harry Potter franchise, the plot thickens and the story becomes all the more serious. Harry begins to experience betrayal and hardships, more than any of the other characters. Not only had the Dark Lord taken his family when he was just a baby, but he had returned a decade later to finish the job. Harry began to get close to certain characters who not only knew his parents, but considered them to be family, only to have them taken away too.
Pick a breed of dragon:
Dragons are one of the many magical creatures that are seen in the Harry Potter franchise. Actually, they are included in a number of different installments. The first was Philosopher's Stone when Hagrid mysteriously acquired a dragon egg. He had wanted one as a pet for quite some time, and hatched the Norwegian Ridgeback right in his hut. Eventually, Ron's older brother had come to Hogwarts to take him because Hagrid would've gotten in a lot of trouble for having the dragon.
Pick a boggart:
As it has been mentioned previously in this quiz, Defense Against the Dark Arts was one of the classes that the students took each year. It was also believed to be cursed by Tom Riddle so that a new professor would be needed each academic year. While Professor Lupin was teaching at Hogwarts, he introduced the students to a boggart. A boggart is a shape-shifter that has the ability to transform into whatever it's viewer is afraid of the most.
Pick a pet:
Pets are surprisingly quite common to those in the wizarding world, as well as at Hogwarts. There are many different species that are encouraged and welcomed at the school. The most "functional" pet would, of course, be an owl because they not only served as a companion but also as a letter carrier as well. Hedwig was a present given to Harry in his first year by Hagrid as a birthday gift. Ron also had a pet rat since his first year that turned out to be Peter Pettigrew.
Pick a personality trait:
As it has been mentioned previously in this quiz, personalities play a big role in the Harry Potter franchise. More specifically, they are important for the sorting hat to consider when selecting which of the four houses a witch or wizard will be placed. For example, those who are placed in the Ravenclaw house are known to be intelligent, creative, wise, and at time witty. Those who are placed in the Gryffindor house are courageous, brave, honorable, and also chivalrous.
Pick a wizard father:
There has been a question that was in reference to magical families already, but this one is specifically about wizard fathers. Being that the students are fairly young when they first attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the parents do often still play a major role in their life. The Weasley family is by far the most seen throughout the franchise, being that they sort of adopt Harry into their own life because he had no magical parents to watch out for him.
Pick an offensive spell:
The Hogwarts students not only learn about defensive spells while attending school, but also a fair amount of offensive as well. For example, in the dueling club that was introduced in Chamber of Secrets, the students are taught how to protect themselves from an attack, but to also use magic to attack any opponents as well. All of this was done of course in the safety of Hogwarts, however, Harry and his friends learn that this magic becomes essential to defeating the Dark Lord.
Pick a professor:
There are a number of professors that are introduced in the Harry Potter franchise. Some of which are new depending on the year, others are recurring professors that had been teaching at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for some time. Examples of professors who were in the franchise for more than a single installment includes Professor Snape, Professor McGonagall, Professor Flitwick, and Professor Sprout. Some more "temporary" professors (such as those who taught Defense Against the Dark Arts) include Professor Lockhart and Professor Umbridge.
Pick a profession:
Despite the fact that the characters are only eleven years old when the first start attending Hogwarts, they are taught quite early about the different professions that are available for them in their future. Some of them even have to take specific classes that will help them prepare for these future jobs. The job of being an Auror is brought up on a number of accounts throughout the franchise. Not only with Harry and his friends as potential options, but there are several characters who are introduced in this field.
Pick a magical status:
The topic of magical statuses has been discussed already throughout this quiz already. For those who are unfamiliar, there are several different categories or classifications that a witch or wizard falls under. The most obvious are those who consider themselves to be "pure." This means they have only had witches or wizards in their family line. There was a time where these specific families called themselves the Sacred Twenty-Eight. Muggle-borns referred to a witch or wizard who was born to non-magical parents.
Pick an Order of the Phoenix member:
The Order of the Phoenix is a wizard organization that has already been discussed earlier in this quiz. To summarize, it was a secret society that was initially created by Dumbledore himself, as a way to rally up witches and wizards who were against Lord Voldemort and his methodologies. The members had gone their separate ways following the demise of Lord Voldemort after that night in Godric's Hollow. However, one word spread about his possible return, the organization regrouped once more, and this time they had new members join the cause.
Pick a Triwizard Tournament task:
The Triwizard Tournament was a highly anticipated series of events that wizarding schools competed in. The competition was between three of the institutions in Britain, which included Hogwarts, Durmstrang Institute, and Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. The way the tournament operated was each school had a student who represented the school as a whole and competed in challenges that were dangerous and difficult to say the very least. When the games were reintroduced while Harry was a student, certain parameters were adopted to keep the students relatively safe.
Pick a non-witch/wizard character:
Although a majority of the characters introduced in the Harry Potter franchise are witches or wizards, there are a select few who fall into a different magical category. Several other species are introduced who are not considered to be a creature due to the fact that they speak and have lives of their own. Unfortunately, not everyone in the wizarding world sees these other magical beings as equals. For example, a House Elf is often employed to be a servant in a witch/wizard's household.
Pick a charm:
Charms are a huge part of the Harry Potter franchise. To begin, Charms is one of the core classes that are taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The professor of said class is none other than Professor Flitwick. Charms are essentially spells that are used to enhance or change the properties of a person or thing (not to be confused with Transfiguration). There are simple charms, such as the unlocking charm (Alohomora) or the levitation spell (Wingardium Leviosa).
Pick a witch mother:
Similar to the question regarding wizard fathers, this one is specific to witch mothers. There are several who are introduced throughout the Harry Potter franchise in its entirety. Molly Weasley is one of the more frequent witch mothers that is seen regularly. Molly is the mother to seven children - six sons and one daughter. Although Harry was not her own son, she treated him as such. He was always welcome under her roof, and she even knitted him his own sweaters at Christmas.
Pick a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor:
Once again, Defense Against the Dark Arts is one of the core classes that are taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The knowledge and skills that are taught in this class allow a witch or wizard to properly defend themselves against a number of different threats, including dark creatures, dark witches/wizards, as well as dark curses and charms. Being that this class was jinxed, Harry and his friends had a new professor each year. Some of these professors were well equipped to teach the class, others were sadly not.
Pick a mode of transportation:
Being that the Harry Potter franchise is a magical one, it is no surprise that there are many forms of unique transportation. Some of these are quite simple, such as the broomstick. This is probably one of the more frequent ones, especially since there is an entire sport based off of the fact that the players fly on a broomstick. Another, somewhat advanced mode of transportation is apparition. It is essentially teleportation where a witch or wizard pictures a place in their mind and allow themselves to go there.
Pick a mentor:
Harry Potter has several mentors that he looks up to throughout his years studying magic at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Of course the most obvious mentor of his would be Dumbledore, who at the time of his arrival was the Headmaster. He had entrusted Harry with a number of tasks during his years as a student, some of which might have been far too advanced for someone of his age. Another mentor for Harry would be Remus Lupin, who was the one responsible for teaching him the Patronus charm.
Pick a club:
Similar to the number of wizarding organizations that have been featured in the Harry Potter franchise, there are also a number of clubs or foundations rather. The Dueling Club, for example, was introduced in Chamber of Secrets where Lockhart and Snape provided instruction to the young students how to defend themselves. With the return of Horace Slughorn as a professor at Hogwarts also meant the return of his infamous "Slug Club." The members were personally selected by Slughorn himself and were some of the best and brightest students.
Pick a love potion scent:
Almost anything is possible and real in the Harry Potter world, including the existence of love potions. There are a number of different brews of this particular kind of potion, although Amortentia is believed to be the most powerful. It is made clear that the love potion can not actually create real love, only the mere illusion of it in the form of infatuation. Nonetheless they are still considered dangerous. Professor Slughorn discusses such a potion in his class, where Hermione explains each potion has a particular smell they find attractive.
Pick a place to battle:
Much of the Harry Potter franchise was leading up to the final battle in the last installment between Lord Voldemort (and his loyal followers), and with the rest of Hogwarts and those who were in allegiance with Harry Potter. The big battle, of course, took place on the grounds of Hogwarts, where Lord Voldemort and his companions managed to evade the protection spells the professors tried to hold. They brought with them the body of Harry Potter, believing it would be enough proof that they had won.
