[edit] History

Harry first met Draco at Diagon Alley, where he was shopping to get his school supplies in Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions. During this moment, Malfoy talks with Harry about what House they hope to be in once they get to Hogwarts. Harry not knowing much about the wizarding world and Hogwarts doesn't say anything

[edit] Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone

In the first installment of the Harry Potter series, we start to learn who Draco Malfoy is and what he thinks of others. He believes that Pure Bloods should be the only ones around. Harry soon starts to dislike him after talking to him on the Hogwarts Express. Later on in the book, Malfoy earns himself detention with Harry, Hermione and Neville in the Forbidden Forest, where Harry first encounters Voldemort.

[edit] Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire

Malfoy doesn't really play a big part in this as the book focuses on the Triwizard Tournament and its competitors more. However he does start off a craze in which everybody starts to wear badges that says 1st Support Diggory and then morph (if pressed on) and it then says Potter stinks.

[edit] Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix

Again, Malfoy does not play such a big part in this book. He does the usual Harry hating throughout the book which is about it. After Harry has been interviewed by Rita Skeeter and it appeared in the Quibbler he and is cronies can't say anything because it would have meant breaking a school rule.

[edit] Harry Potter And The The Half Blood Prince

This book focuses mainly around Harry and Malfoy. Malfoy is recruited by Voldemort who has returned, as a Death Eater and is given the task of smuggling a group of Death Eaters into the school and to assassinate Albus Dumbledore. In this book, JK shares Malfoy's feelings with us about having to kill his Headmaster and it ends up getting too much for him. At the end he and the Death Eaters flee the school.

[edit] Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows

In this book, he is shunted to the side a bit. We only really hear about him once Harry, Hermione and Ron are taken to Malfoy Manor to await Voldemort's arrival. When they first meet him and the gate with his mother, she asks him if it is them and he says that he can't really tell. He remins silent throughout the book until the final battle where Crabbe dies in the fire. He is also mentioned in the 19 Years Later chapter when he is with his wife and son, Scorpio, as he gets ready to go off to Hogwarts.

Here are some of the funny and memorable quotes from the books and the movies. Ladies and Gentlemen, Draco Malfoy.


(confronting Professor Dumbledore with his wand) "I don't want your help! Don't you understand, I have to do this! I have to kill you or he's [Voldemort] going to kill me!"-Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

"Well, I can certainly see why we're trying to keep them alive. Who wouldn't want pets that can burn, sting, and bite all at once?"

"Longbottom, if brains were gold, you'd be poorer than Weasley, and that's saying something."

"Oh how silly we’ve been!" Malfoy sneered. "We should have stroked them! Why didn’t we guess?" "I-I thought they were funny," Hagrid said uncertainly to Hermione. "Oh tremendously funny!" said Malfoy. "Really witty, giving us books that try and rip our hands off!"

"You'll soon find out some wizarding families are much better than others, Potter. You don't want to go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there."

"No one asked your opinion, you filthy little Mudblood."

"You're in luck, Weasley, Potter's obviously spotted some money on the ground!"

"I'm the new Slytherin Seeker, Weasley. Everyone's just been admiring the brooms my father's bought our team."

"Azkaban - the wizard's prison, Goyle. Honestly, if you were any slower, you'd be going backwards."

"Arthur Weasley loves Muggles so much he should snap his wand in half and go and join them. You'd never know the Weasleys were purebloods, the way they behave."

"When the Dark Lord takes over, is he going to care how many O.W.L.s or N.E.W.T.s anyone's got? Of course he isn't..it'll be all about the kind of service he received, the level of devotion he was shown."

"Montague's just been found in a toilet, Sir."

"You'd better hurry up, they'll be waiting for 'the Chosen Captain'-- 'The Boy Who Scored'-- whatever they call you these days."


"Know what I think? I think the Gryfindor Qudditch Team choose its teams mates on people who they feel sorry for. There the Weasly's with no money Potter with no parents, you should be on the team Longbottom, you have no brains"<i>
