35 Draco Malfoy Quotes From The Half-Blood Prince

Misunderstood. Deserving of a redemption arc. Some have even stretched to call him the true anti-hero of the story. When it comes to Draco Malfoy, one thing is for sure, he has amassed a legion of fans who continue to back him at every turn (perhaps much even to the chagrin of J.K.Rowling herself).

From his early beginnings as a child of privilege and the story’s archetypal bully (think Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone), Draco undergoes some deep character growth and none more-so than in the turn of events in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Enlisted (or forced rather) to complete a dangerous mission for Voldemort, a more vulnerable, mature and gifted Draco is shown (he honed the ability to employ Occlumency which is by no means a trivial task).

Mal Foi, from the root of ‘bad faith’ or ‘unfaithful’, here are 35 quotes about everyone’s most controversial and polarizing character –
