The Wizarding World in the Harry Potter series seems like an appropriately magical place to be but a deeper look reveals just how backward its practices are. House-elves are magical creatures who are treated horribly by wizards and it takes the sacrifice of characters like Dobby to bring in the necessary change. There's a long history behind the role that house-elves play in the Wizarding World along with points of interest about established house-elves such as Dobby, Kreacher, and Winky.
Learning about the details behind house-elves will provide fans with a different lens to view these creatures with and place the Harry Potter series itself in a brand new context.
