In continuing this series about favorite characters, I wanted to turn to fictional mothers. Obviously mothers are one of the most crucial parts of most families, and that is not different in literature, television, and film.
When thinking about this question, I considered many possible choices, but I decided that my favorite fictional mother is also from a book series that I love — Lily Potter from the Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling.
While we often see or read about Lily Potter in terms of what she did instead of directly, her actions to save the infant Harry Potter from Voldemort’s attacks reaches the level of heroism. She sacrifices her life in order to save her child. This action sets in motion much of the rest of the books in the series.
She is, indeed, a loving, powerful, and heroic mother. Without her actions, Harry Potter would not have lived to become a student at Hogwart’s School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry.
