For Harry Potter readers and fans: which character happens to be your favorite? Mine is Sirius Black. I really like him because if he were a real person, I would definitely respect him. Sirius does have his flaws, the most known one was being a bit rash, but was nonetheless a lovable character, not to mention the fact that he truly cared for Harry. Spoiler I was 120% crushed when he died in Order of the Phoenix. I actually started bawling. In the whole entire series, this was the most painful death for me except for Lupin's, which was just short behind Sirius'. Having lost my own godfather a couple years before I first read Book 5, I could sympathize even more with Harry and it made me cry twice as much as I normally would have.
