Full list of characters

The following list is all the characters to appear in the first Harry Potter book.

I have built the list from scratch, so it follows my own idiosyncracies. I have chosen to include every witch or wizard named in the book, as well as other apparently-sentient creatures, such as the centaurs. I have chosen not to include creatures which appear to be neither intelligent, nor animagi. For example, I have included Mrs Norris, because she knows things, whereas I have not included Neville's toad, Trevor, or Hagrid's boarhound, Fang. In the case of Scabbers, I have identified him, but linked to Peter Pettigrew.

Other things to note, I have also included the authors of books, where they have been identified. Also, where a character is associated with a Hogwarts House, I have identified that House

The characters are listed in the order they appear in the book.
