Re: Moral Ambiguities

As Tromos said in his post-within-a-post (), "The saintly perception of Dumbledore was shattered. And even Harry, whom Dumbledore celebrates as a much more honorable wizard than himself, has his significant faults - arrogance and anger among them." I think this brings up a great point in that there will always be shades of grey when dealing with very realistic characters. No one is perfect, and to have any character be the infallible embodiment of perfection would be absurd.

The morals aren't provided within one character, they're provided throughout the series. And JKR has said that she never set out to make Harry Potter a book of morals, they just kind of happened.
