Wizards and Witches

J. K. Rowling is a master at inventing characters. Have a look at some of her character profiles at Wizards and Witches from A to Z. Why do you think she has given her characters certain features? For example, Draco Malfoy is very pale in hair, skin and eyes? Many of the names have meanings from other languages. Experiment with Latin and other meanings at Free Online Dictionaries.
