A Hogwarts yearbook: Harry Potter Class of 2011

A look back at the characters who made the Harry Potter film series great, including Daniel Radcliffe as Harry ("Most Likely to Succeed") and Emma Watson as Hermione ("Brainiest").

No, the "Harry Potter" saga doesn't end with a graduation. But as the movies come to a close with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" (opening late-night Thursday at numerous theaters), it seems right to take one last look at the Hogwarts class that we've come to know so well.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

The Students

Harry Potter

Most Likely to Succeed: Harry Potter (Gryffindor)

Alter ego: Daniel Radcliffe

Favorite class: Quidditch (well, it was extracurricular)

Trademarks: Glasses, lightning-shaped scar

What he'll leave behind for the next class: the Marauder's Map ("I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.")

Last words (to Hogwarts): "I never realized how beautiful this place was."

Harry Potter

The Brainiest: Hermione Granger (Gryffindor)

Alter ego: Emma Watson

Favorite class: All of them, but especially Charms

Trademarks: Always the first to raise a hand in class; unruly hair; sigh of exasperation

What she'll leave behind: Her beloved copy of "Hogwarts, A History"

Last words (to Harry): "Sometimes you can be really thick. You don't really think you're going to be able to find all those horcruxes by yourself, do you?"

Harry Potter

This Year's Weasley: Ron Weasley (Gryffindor)

Alter ego: Rupert Grint

Favorite class: Care of Magical Creatures (because Hagrid taught it)

Trademarks: Red hair; fear of spiders

What he'll leave behind: His frilly dress robes, sent by his mother

Last words (to Harry, about Hermione): "We wouldn't last two days without her. Don't tell her I said that."

Harry Potter

Most Likely To Stay Blond: Draco Malfoy (Slytherin)

Alter ego: Tom Felton

Favorite class: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Trademarks: White-toothed sneer; obsession with blood lines

What he'll leave behind: His outdated Nimbus 2001

Last words (to Dumbledore): "I don't want your help. Don't you understand, I have to do this. I have to kill you or he's going to kill me."

Harry Potter

Most Loyal Friend: Neville Longbottom (Gryffindor)

Alter ego: Matthew Lewis

Favorite class: Herbology

Trademarks: Shyness; unexpected bravery

What he'll leave behind: His Remembrall

Last words (to the Death Eaters looking for Harry): Hey, losers. He isn't here."

Harry Potter

aka Loony (but in a good way): Luna Lovegood (Ravenclaw)

Alter ego: Evanna Lynch

Favorite class: None; she mostly daydreams

Trademarks: Soft-voiced vagueness; wide-eyed loyalty

What she'll leave behind: Her unique earring collection (which include radishes and silver stars)

Last words (to Harry): "My mum always said things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end." (She said this several movies ago, but it's still valid.)

Harry Potter

Next Year's Weasley: Ginevra "Ginny" Weasley (Gryffindor)

Alter ego: Bonnie Wright

Favorite class: Dumbledore's Army training sessions, taught by Harry

Trademarks: Red hair; wild about Harry

What she'll leave behind: Her skill with the Bat-Bogey Hex

Last words: None. Ginny doesn't talk much; mostly she gazes.

The Faculty

Harry Potter

Albus Dumbledore (in memorium)

"Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy."

Harry Potter

Severus Snape

"Over the years I've played my part well — so well I've deceived one of the greatest wizards of all time."

Harry Potter

Minerva McGonagall

(to Harry, Ron and Hermione) "Why is it, that whenever anything happens, it's always you three?"

Harry Potter
