** There's also the Valentine's Day chapter, where Ginny, freshly free from the diary temporarily, pours her heart out to Harry via dwarftelegram only to be humilated in front of her entire class when said Dwarf pins harry down in front of them, along with Draco and Percy. It's a miracle Ginny didn't go running back to the Diary right then and their.

** On top of that we have the Valentine's Day Incident. While no where near as bad as what Tom had been doing, it was still painfully humliating: Ginny finally freed herself from the diary's grasp temporarily and worked up the nerve to tell harry how she felt via singing dwarf telegram. Unfortunately said Dwarf did so by chasing after harry, then dragging him to the ground and forcing him to listen to it in front of her entire class, as well as Draco and Percy. It's no wonder the poor girl ran away in tears afterwords.

* Poor, poor Molly Weasley. She lost two beloved brothers in the First Wizarding War. She eventually came to basically adopt HArry Potter ( afellow woobie, and due to being involved in his life, had the following tragedies occur: Her daughter was possessed by Voldemort himself and nearly killed in her first year at Hogwarts, Her husband was [[spoiler: nearly killed by Voldemort's pet snake]], one son was nearly killed by werewolf, and another son (implied to be her favorite) totally cut himself off from the rest of the family. In the seventh book alone, she has to deal with [[spoiler: George nearly dying, Fred REALLY dying,]] and having absolutely no idea where Ron, Hermione, and Harry (the latter of whom she essentially considers family) are for most of the book. In the Fifth Book, it is shown that her greatest fear is dead family members, so the entire last half of the series must have been absolute hell for her.

Awesome, yes, but still extra woobie points right there.

Word of Rowling states that they aren't permanent. Also, Gringotts Dragon.
* [[UnintentionallySympathetic Marietta Edgecombe]]. Sure she [[spoiler:sold Dumbledore's Army to Umbridge]] but she did it in fears that her mother's position in the ministry might be threatened. It's hard to not feel compassion when she's jinxed by pimples that spell SNEAK on her face that are implied to be permanant.

It's hard to not feel compassion when she's jinxed by pimples that spell SNEAK on her face that, while not permanent, left her face badly scarred. * The Gringotts Dragon. Dear God the Gringotts Dragon! The [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds poor thing]] is locked up in Gringotts bank for who knows how long, [[DragonHoard guarding]] a vault [[DeconstructedTrope against its wishes]]. In order to keep it from fighting back, the Goblins trained it to associate a certain noise with pain (a distressingly realistic method of animal abuse) so that are implied to be permanant. it will back down everytime they approach it. Once it's freed by the Trio, it goes on a very satisfying rampage and escapes with them in tow, but has a very tough time getting up into the air, further illustrating just how horrid the conditions it lived in were. Did we mention the fact that possibly because of those conditions it's ''completely blind?''

***Given said sister was the one who murdered Andromeda's daughter, after gunning for her specifically for at least a year, that probably just makes things even worse. How terrible would it be to feel even a scrap of grief for your own child's killer?

* Moaning Myrtle. Killed by a monster, constantly bullied before and after death and forced to haunt the bathrooms forever. And no-one could ever hug her, because they'd just go right through her. ** She is somewhat better off later in the series...

She is somewhat better off later in the series...series, though. ** Oddly enough, Myrtle actually seems to parody this trope somewhat. She's a legitimately tragic character, but not only is she incredibly [[{{Wangst}} whiny]], she actually tends to whine about things that have ''absolutely nothing'' to do with her past tragedies. She also tends to snap rather viciously at people for even subatomic offenses.

* Merope Gaunt is probably the most pathetic character in the whole series. She only wanted to be loved and Mrs. Cole, whom she met in about the last ten minutes of her life, may well be the only person to ever treat her with anything resembling kindness. Her family abused her and the local townspeople thought she was a freak. Consider nearly everyone else on this page has at least ''someone'' they're friends with or is at least decent to them. Merope crossed the line by effectively date-raping Tom Riddle, Sr. into marrying her, but at that point you really couldn't blame her if she decided HumansAreBastards and went on a murderous rampage.

** Let's be honest, the whole lycanthropy thing; he was horrifically maimed at the age of four and then forced to turn into a murderous creature every month for the rest of his life. To make it worse, the transformations were so painful that the place he transformed in came to be known as the most haunted house of the country due to the amount of screams that came from it.. *** And then there's the whole FantasticRacism thing, too.

* And then there's Sirius, whose entire life has basically been a total hell for him. His parents were pureblood supremacists who disowned him after he ran away, and though he had a few happy years at Hogwarts, he shortly loses James, his best friend. And then Sirius gets betrayed by another friend, who frames him and gets him imprisoned in the worst jail imaginable with no trial and the whole world thinking he's an evil murderer. Then he gets stuck in the place he hates most, Grimmauld Place, feeling trapped and utterly miserable.
