Aim is to think of a character which begins with A, B, C, D, etc - basically keep the A - Z character names going until we run out. :elefant:

If we reach a character with Z then the loop starts back again at a character who's first name begins with A (and so on).:nyan:

Post, 1 character at a time.

Use the First Letter of the Characters First Name when posting. But still post their surname so we know who it is :yep:


To Start (e.g.)

Arthur Weasley

My favourite book character is Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter series..

The books describe Dumbledore as a classic wizard; tall and thin, with long silver hair that looks long enough to tuck into his belt and a long beard. He has twinkling, blue eyes, a very long and crooked nose (looking as if it had been broken at least twice) and long fingers. He wears half-moon spectacles. In addition, in his younger years, he is described as having auburn hair.

Throughout the series, Dumbledore believes that an individual's choices reflect one's character, rather than one's birth, blood or family, saying, "it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be". Unlike most wizards, Dumbledore is not afraid to refer to Voldemort by name (and attempted to persuade others to call him by his 'proper' name, Voldemort, during the First War) and instead addresses him as "Tom" when confronting him.

Characters in the books often remark that his greatest weakness is Dumbledore's willingness to trust those who may otherwise be considered untrustworthy. This trust is often criticised by those around him but is rarely questioned. However the end of the series shows that Dumbledore had valid reasons to trust the people he did and he is shown to know exactly what he's doing even when other people in the series sometimes cannot understand it.

Dumbledore frequently makes humorous, even whimsical comments, especially during conflict, which can often infuriate those who are at odds with him. He is hardly ever impatient, and makes a point of politeness, even to those whom one would consider his enemies. He is a great lover of music, calling it "A magic beyond all we do [at Hogwarts]".

While a brilliant and wise wizard, Dumbledore is portrayed as very eccentric; for example, in the first book he announces that he would like to say "a few words" to the school, and then pronounces: "Nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak."

Dumbledore exhibits no false modesty, readily acknowledging that he is unusually intelligent and an exceptionally powerful wizard. He admits a number of times to Harry in their occasional meetings that he makes mistakes, and since he handles more important issues than most men, his mistakes "tend to be correspondingly huger."
