Just want to make clear that by "favorite" I don't necessarily mean the most likable. I mean the one that you thought was the most fun to read, the most fully realized, or the most likable...whatever reason you have, which is your favorite?

I'm voting for Umbridge just because I think she is one of the best villians in recent literature. She was deliciously nasty and cruel, and I thought she was perfectly rendered.

Quirinus Quirrell, Gilderoy Lockhart, Remus Lupin, Bartemius Crouch, Jr., Dolores Umbridge, Severus Snape, or Amycus Carrow?

Definitely Umbridge. Lupin comes in second. Snape is one of my all time favorite characters, but as a DADA teacher it didn't matter much. Him being that teacher proved that he was a good guy, because Dumbledore knew about the jinx on the job.

I know Crouch was acting exactly like Alastor Moody the whole time, but it was still Crouch, so I don't know who to say really taught that year.

hey snowman, did you actually vote, because it's just showing my vote. Not that I expect many people to vote. I keep posting on these non-Koontz boards, but there is limited involvement on them.

Oh, and great point about Moody/Crouch.

I forgot to vote, I do that sometimes when I get lost in my explanations for that vote.

One of the reasons I loved ORDER OF THE PHOENIX so much was because of Umbridge. I loved to hate her.
