Well one of our first tasks is to write about why we chose the three characters we did...
The three characters that I chose were Severus Snape, Draco Malfoy, and Bellatrix Lestrange.
I enjoy all three of these characters, their personalities, development of them over time ; although the first two are more well known that the third.
Snape rocks because he is basically a potion master. I love potions (chemistry and herbology) and find it completely fascinating. I also in the past, have created my own potions for a variety of things. Also as revealed in a small glimpse of his home he seems to be quite the book collector, and I can totally identify with that because I am as well. I love old and first edition tomes. I also love his sense of style, who doesn't love black?
Draco Malfoy always intrigued me as a character because he always seemed to display a facade to everyone and not let anyone see what was truly underneath. I think this was mainly due to him wanting to live up to the expectations of his parents, notably his father. Unfortunately he also seemed to love attention of any kind, even if it was negative attention. My theory for this is that he was overlooked at home. Basically like the parrot syndrome.
Bellatrix Lestrange always seemed to me like the one seeking love and acceptance and would do anything to achieve it, even follow an evil wizard to the death. While this path ultimately led to her doom, I in my own pursuits of love and acceptance have been led down a similar although less severe one.
