Sidekick Saturday [15] - Magical

Sidekick Saturday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week's type
• Share a picture and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• Put your link in the Linky thing and comment

This week is Magical

Zane drew the picture of Dobby from Harry Potter and I turned it digital

Dobby has to be one of my favorite under appreciated magical creatures. He wasn't even in the movies for most of his book parts!

Dobby is a house elf that is one of the most magical creatures in the Harry Potter world being able to apparate and disapparate even when wizards cannot. They are not allowed wands and are servants which cause Hermoine to create S.P.E.W. or The Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare to help them get more rights. Dobby is an unusual house elf that loves freedom and does all he can to help Harry even when helping sometimes hurts.


“What's that supposed to be anyway?" said Fred squinting at Dobby's painting. "Looks like a Gibbon with two black eyes!"
"It's Harry," said George pointing at the back of the picture. "Says so on the back."
"Good likeness," said Fred grinning.
Harry threw his new homework diary at him.”


“So Dobby stopped us from getting on the train and broke your arm. . . ." He shook his head. "You know what, Harry? If he doesn't stop trying to save your life he's going to kill you.”

“Offend Dobby!” choked the elf. “Dobby has never been asked to sit down by a wizard — like an equal —”

“But Dobby shouted, "You shall not harm Harry Potter! ... He got up, face livid, and pulled out his wand, but Dobby raised a long, threatening finger. "You shall go now," he said fiercely, pointing down at Mr. Malfoy. "You shall not touch Harry Potter. You shall go now.”

  1. Even though I only watched the movies, I think Dobby is so sweet and nice. We should learn from him. I love his reaction in the movie when he gets the sock and believes he is free.

  2. He is definitely a character that we could all learn from :D Thank you so much for stopping by!

  3. Love the drawing of Dobby! I also love the friendship that formed between him and Harry, even though Dobby's initial attempts to help Harry in Chamber of Secrets didn't always seem so helpful, lol.

  4. Awwe thank you - I will have to let Zane know. I love that bond that was formed too even after he told him to stop trying to save his life :D

  5. LOVE the drawing and Dobby is so cute!

  6. Zane is quite talented! :) I've only seen the first HP movie so I didn't realize Dobby wasn't in them. But he is a great sidekick!

  7. Oh they both have some good picks it sounds like :D

  8. Dobby is in some of the movies, but he doesn't have as big of a part that he plays in the books. They used Neville to fill in some places that were actually Dobby. Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll let Zane know about your compliment :D

  9. Me too :D Thank you! I will let Zane know too.

  10. Dobby! He is so loved. lol. That is to cute. :) Great pick for sidekick.

  11. Another great pick! I posed this question to my mom and sister. My mom went with Reina from my books then jumped over to Harry Potter, but I'll say she chose Reina. My sister kept offering suggestions. Zee from the Mercy Thompson books. Some mage in the Cat Richardson books. She wanted to pick a shifter because shifting is all magical, I told her to save cheating for a hard topic...she gave me a dirty look and kept offering sidekicks.


I love comments and read every one of them! Since they are an award in themselves, this is an award-free blog. Thank you though for the consideration!
