Harry Potter fans the world over have their absolute favorite character in the series. I'm sure all of us HP nerds asked other Potterheads (and probably people who weren't as into HP as we were) who their favorite character was. Although it is very interesting to hear about other fans' favorite characters and why they were their favorites, I've always been curious about one particular person's favorite character: the person who created the books.
I always imagined that J.K. Rowling had a favorite out of the many characters she created over the years while writing Harry Potter. Fortunately, today I've found out who her favorite character is. J.K. Rowling's favorite character is none other than Albus Dumbledore.
To me, this news is not very surprising. After all, who wouldn't like a wise, Merlin-esque, quirky old wizard? Aside from that though, I feel like a lot of tender love and care went into the creation of Albus Dumbledore. Not to mention, Dumbledore has some of the best dialogue in the entire series. I also like the fact that one of Rowling's favorite characters is a man who seemed like he always stood for freedom, order, and the good of wizard-kind but in reality, he was a lot darker than we all imagined.
