Who Dies? 2 comments

Sure, you all hope it will not be one of your favorite characters:

“Yes, sorry,” Rowling said, when asked yesterday on her Web site whether there would be casualties in her upcoming book, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
But, I suspect that Professor Bainbridge has this one correct:
Personally, I suspect that Dumbledore’s days are numbered. Rowling has hewed pretty closely to Joseph Campbell’s Hero Myth thus far in the Harry Potter series.
The Professor has more.

    I’ve tended to think that Dumbledore wouldn’t die until book seven. I’m inclined to view Lupin as a much more personal mentor to Harry within the series. He, together with Sirius, represent older mentors as much as Dumbledore. My line of thought is that the loss of mentors increases in the successive books, and my bet would be that Remus Lupin is the next to die, with Dumbledore’s death as a more final catalyst to a confrontation between Harry and Voldemort.
