Harry Potter[change | change source]
In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Sorcerer's Stone) he portrays a bad guy who hates Harry. It doesn't matter though because Harry hates him back. Severus hated James Potter, Harry's father, because he took Lily from him, this is another reason he hates Harry so much because he looks like his father. However, in Deathly Hallows Part 2 we discover that Snape is in fact a hero. He sacrifices himself to save the wizarding world. Harry recognises this and names a child after him in honour of his braveness.
