Does Harry Potter die in the final book? Here's the answer...
Everyone seems to be dying to know whether or not Harry Potter dies in the final installment of the series titled "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
I found this spoiler in a blog titled EM Physician - Backstage Pass. I am warning you.... this IS A SPOILER... so stop reading if you don't want to know who dies and who lives!!
So who does die in this book?
There are so many...
The first death is Professor Charity Burbage, Professor of Muggle Studies at Hogwarts. The book actually opens with Voldemort torturing her, hitting her with Avada Kedavra, the killing curse, and feeding her to his snake as a punishment for standing up for the rights of Muggles.
In Chapter Four, as Harry leaves Privit Drive for the final time, the group sent to protect him is attacked by Voldemort and the Death Eaters.
We lose Hedwig, the white snowy owl that has been Harry's friend and mail carrier through the previous six books.
In this battle Mad-Eye Moody, the Auror is killed. George Weasley is badly wounded, but survives.
Scrimgeour, the Minister of Magic is killed to put Voldemort's man in power.
Gregorovitch, the wandmaker, and Grindelwald, the dark wizard, are killed by Voldemort in his search for the Elder Wand, one of the three Deathly Hallows.
Ollivander, the wandmaker is tortured, but saved by Dobby.
Bathilda Bagshot, an old friend of Dumbledore's family who still lived in Godric's Hollow, was murdered in order to lure Harry into a trap if he visited her for information.
Dobby, Harry's loyal protector dies rescuing him from Malfoy's house as Voldemort is about to arrive.
In Chapter 27 the goblin from Gringotts who brings news to Voldemort that the cup has been stolen is killed as are many Death Eaters. The Malfoys manage to escape from the room and survive the Dark Lord's murderous rage.
Snape is killed by Voldemort or more specifically by Nagini, but not because he was found to be a traitor...
Quite a few Hogwarts students, many who were part of Dumbledore's Army, plus members of the Order of the Phoenix died in the final battle.
Crabbe was killed by the Fiendfyre he created to kill Harry - it almost killed Draco Malfoy. Tonks, Lupin and Fred Weasley are the main characters lost in the Battle of Hogwarts, but more than 50 were killed.
The biggest loss should have been Harry...the odds-on favorite to not outlive the series. He does get murdered by Voldemort, but the killing curse winds up only destroying the piece of Voldemort's soul that lived in Harry. Pretending to be dead, Harry is carried back to Hogwarts where Neville Longbottom risks his life to destroy Nagini, the last of the Horcruxes. The last victim in the book is Voldemort, himself. Destroyed by his own curse...
