Potter Portaits #5: Draco Malfoy (and evil owl)
It's that slimy Slytherin Draco Malfoy!

"Hello. My name is Draco Malfoy. My parents are Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy. Just based on that, guess if I'm a nice guy or an evil little snit. Just guess."

Draco is very proud of being a pure-blooded wizard, meaning all of his ancestors were wizards. You know what that means: like the British monarchy, he's the result of lots of inbreeding. I think that explains a lot of the attitude problem (and the easy bleeding).

Draco is a snob and a bully around Hogwarts, but it's a funny kind of bully given that things almost never go his way at all. Whenever he opens his little mouth, he usually winds up being turned into a ferret or getting a bloody nose from a girl. After a while, it's kind of hard to even see Harry as the underdog in their rivalry. Harry's famous and (usually popular), both of them are rich, and Harry always wins. I guess that's why, at the end of the series, Draco renounces his family fortune and builds a cabin in the woods where he can live by the sweat of his brow and be a friend to all the woodland creatures (this does not really happen).
