These are in no particular order and these are not necessarily my top 3, but they do make my top 10
3) Severus Snape: Yes, I love Snape. He's one of the few grey characters in the whole series. His childhood home was full of neglect and parents who constantly argued with one another. He fell in love with his childhood friend and wanted her to love him back, but she was in love with a man that he hated. Snape was constantly bullied throughout his years at Hogwarts by James and the Marauders. Snape never seemed to forgive any of the men, though in his adult years he could at least maintain a professional relationship with Remus and never sought revenge against Sirius during the times they were together at Grimauld Place in the fifth book. He was a Death Eater shortly after leaving Hogwarts and later secretly switched sides if it meant that the woman he loved could be protected from Voldemort. After Lily died, he still maintained his loyalty to Dumbledore and agreed to protect Harry during the boy's time at the school. In Harry's sixth year, Dumbledore made Snape promise that Snape would be the one to kill Dumbledore so that Voldemort would believe Snape to be the master of the Elder Wand instead of Draco. He also made Snape promise to protect the students from Death Eaters after his (Dumbledore's) death. Snape's story is one of tragedy and heartbreak, but also of courage, love, and loyalty.
2) Luna Lovegood: Luna is a year younger than Harry and resides in Ravenclaw house. She's one of the students who joins Dumbledore's Army in the fifth book and goes with Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, and Ginny to the Department of Mystery in the Ministry of Magic. Luna is quirky and lack self-conscious, which meant she would always speak her mind. Luna is also nonjudgmental and very accepting of others to the point where she is unfazed by the ridicule and mockery of the other students. Luna is also great at comforting others, such as when she comforted Harry after Sirius's death. I wish I could be more like Luna. I try my best every day not to let the opinions of those who aren't my friends or family bother me and I do my best to be loyal to them and comfort them when needed.
1) Rubeus Hagrid: Hagrid is a big, friendly giant with a big heart for both the main trio and magical creatures of all kinds, though the more dangerous they are the more he adores them. Hagrid was Harry's first friend he ever made in his life and the two always stood up for each other. The bond Hagrid shared with Harry was, in my opinion, something like that of a brother. The two always stood up for one another, never let anything deter their friendship, always supported each other, and had a shared bond of being orphaned outsiders that Harry never failed to honor. Even after Harry left Hogwarts, it's implied that the two still maintained a strong friendship given the fact that two of Harry's sons were planning to have tea with the half-giant after their first day arrival at Hogwarts. Hagrid's kindness and loyalty are what make me love him so much. He's also stuck by Harry and Dumbledore's sides and he was willing to do anything for them. He also shares my love of animals and his dumbfounded moments when he realizes he said something he shouldn't have.
So those are a few of my favorite characters from the franchise. Other's include Harry, Dumbledore, McGonagall, Nymphadora Tonks, and Ginny Weasley.
