Gilderoy Lockhart

Gilderoy Lockhart is a character in the Harry Potter book and movie series. During his time as a Ravenclaw student, he received many prestigious awards, and he isn’t shy about letting everyone know it. After graduating Hogwarts, he became a celebrity in the wizarding world. In particular he wrote books about his encounters with magical creatures, such as Gadding with Ghouls and Travels with Trolls. When Dumbledore appoints Lockhart as the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, Hermione becomes smitten by his knowledge. Yet Harry and Ron (and most everyone else) find him obnoxious. Although there’s more to him than meets the eye: he tricked actual accomplished wizards into revealing their stories, and then erased their memories with Memory Charms so he could take all the credit. In the film adaptation, Kenneth Branagh plays this role.

Lyra Jones from Cliche

Lips slightly parted in an expression of grim determination,
revealing for a brief moment a set of perfect white teeth, Lyra Jones swung her saber at the nearest attacker. Her bare, muscular limbs barely strained from the effort. When all the Men of the Moon lay slain at her feet, the valiant Space Huntress allowed herself to rest….

Lyra Jones is one of four protagonists in my novella, Cliche. It tells the story of poorly-written fictional characters emerging from their books to confront their poorly writers — hilarity ensues. Lyra was originally written as a pulp fiction heroine, who somehow manages to win many an intergalactic swordfight in skimpy, impractical armor without losing life or limb. Lyra much prefers pairing her scant armor with a long-sleeved tunic and baggy pants, which offer both modesty and protection against harsh weather out in space.

Minerva is a stern instructor, but she genuinely cares about the well being of her students. As a former Gryffindor student, she values courage and bravery above all else, and isn’t afraid to deduct points from her own house when its necessary.

Lucius and his wife belong to the Death Eaters, aka the most adamant followers of Lord Voldemort. Because of his wealth and status, he takes great pride in his aristocratic status. Like Draco, he looks down upon half bloods and Muggle born wizards, for he thinks pureblood wizards are inherently superior. Lucius has a particular disdain for the Weasley family, as well as Harry Potter himself. Jason Isaacs plays this role in the film adaptation.
