The Wizarding World of the Harry Potter series has plenty of ups and downs for its various witches and wizards, as all great fantasy epics do. That being said, there are some tragic Harry Potter characters who could've used a bit more sympathy from J.K. Rowling.
Wizards like Neville Longbottom and Remus Lupin seemed to be cursed from an early age. Sirius Black wastes more than a decade away in the cells of Azkaban. Even non-wizards like Dobby and Jacob Kowalski always seem to find themselves on the wrong side of metaphorical coin flips. Don't even bring up Moaning Myrtle. So, put on your sorting hats, you Muggles, and vote up those unlucky few who could've used a lucky break now and then.
