Umbrage is in many ways my most hated character, because she does things with the veneer of goodness and morally superiority. She is the evil I see around us today much more than Voldemort.

Yes. Exactly this.

I love how grey so many of Rowling’s characters are. Even our beloved leads, Harry, Ron, and Hermione, are all routinely rottenly behaved. They’re human i the best way.

I suspect that James Potter actually would have grown up to be a good man. Rowling lets all of her teenagers be flawed in a way that doesn’t telegraph their personas as adults.
