    Meep, why did you put Hedwig as a choice? I highly doubt an owl could be the protagonist of HP...anyway, Harry is the hero because of all he went through and yet managed to overcame it...I don't think it's nice to fake your own parents' death, is it?

    Maybe she could be heroine if HP revolved around owls and not humans.

    Well, there is no doubt that harry is the hero. His tough years with the Dursleys makes him aware of right and wrong. He is willing to step up for his own or someone else's right or safety. He was already a legend before becoming a hero, that helps too.

    Ron, on the other hand is the anti-hero. He isn't as brave as Harry is, or Hermione for that matter. He comes from a sub-standard family and probably has an inferiority complex. If anything, he is a loyal friend, possibly due to this all.

    To cover them all, Hermiony is the brains of the group, the silent force that rather chooses to operate in the shadow Harry. Yes, her skills are unmatched by Harry and she tries to be a hero of her own with her save the Elves activities. but when it comes to the real trouble, she knows Harry is the right man to be front-center.

    Hedwig... I love Hedwig, but she is an extention of Harry, like Crookshanks to Hermione and Scabbers was to Ron. (Pidwidgeon is a matter of it's own.) There are other heroes in the books, like Albus Dumbledore, Sirius Black and Severus Snape (?). But as it turned out, these books are about Harry, not about one of those...
