About This Quiz

The Harry Potter wizarding world is full of father figures that take their time to teach those that are under them. They are all about helping children learn (although some of them will gladly break the rules to do so), and they want to take care of their families, even when times are tough. They all want their children to learn the ways of the family, the ways of the wizarding world, and the ways of society.

Not only are these father figures relevant to the storylines, but they are also essential for the character development of the story. These teachers always want to help those in need, and it is no surprise that you may have thought (once or twice) about who your dad would be if you lived in the world of Harry Potter. Would your dad be serious, like Severus Snape? Would he be a workaholic Dumbledore? Would he do anything to teach you and help you learn, like Remus Lupin? Or would he be fun-loving and let you get into trouble like Arthur Weasley?
