%% Please note that, as popular as this series is, it is a gospel truth that ''every single one of these characters has a camp that loves them and a camp that hates them''. To be perfectly honest, no one cares which camp you belong to; people have differing opinions, and they make the world go 'round.

%% HOWEVER! This is '''not''' the page where you justify your love or hatred for a character; if you really can't go one more minute without doing so, please go to either DarthWiki/PaintTheHeroBlack or SugarWiki/VillainWhitewashingService. This page aims to be completely, totally, and in all other ways ''neutral''.

%% Also note that you may ''not'' support a trope with non-canon examples of a character's behavior or personality, unless it came straight from [[WordOfGod J. K. Rowling herself]]. So if you read something about a character in a fanfic, ''it does not go here''. Any instance of that is termed "{{fanon}}", and all examples from fanfiction go there. FridgeBrilliance can go here, but ''only'' if it is supported by canon or WordOfGod.

%% Which character do these stipulations apply to? '''Every single one listed on these pages. ''No exceptions. At all. None. PERIOD''.'''

%% Are we all clear on that? Good. Now go forth and trope!
