Rubeus Hagrid is the Gamekeeper and Keeper of Keys at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is a half-giant with a tangled, bushy beard and hair to match, which obscures most of his face except for his bettle-like eyes. He is twice as tall as a normal full-grown man, due to his Giantess mother's blood, and had dustbin-lid-sized hands. Though Giants have a reputation for being fearsome, Hagrid is gentle and kind-hearted, always trying to do what's best, even if it does make things worse. He has a half brother on his mother's side named Grawp. He lived in a hut in the grounds and eventually became Professor of Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts.


[edit] Character development

[edit] Early Hogwarts years

Hagrid was framed by Tom Riddle, who claimed that he was responsible for opening the Chamber of Secrets and that Aragog (Hagrid's Acromantula friend) was the horror within. Hagrid was expelled as a result of these accusations. Albus Dumbledore, who did not believe Hagrid was guilty, persuaded the Headmaster of the time Armando Dippet to keep him on as Gameskeeper.
