Harry Potter is an orphan that has motivated many people and the phenomenon surrounding him has brought back reading to our children. What is it that makes Harry so special to the reader? The fact that he is an orphan makes it easy for the reader to identify with him, because in the end, we all become orphans. Most coming of age literary heroes go into the world to separate themselves from their parents and family, try to find their own place in the world. For the orphan it is different, he goes into the world searching for a family to belong to. But how can we identify the family figures surrounding the orphan? I have decided to use theories by Carl Gustav Jung about the archetypes, where he defines characteristics of each archetype in connection with fairytales, folklore and religion. By using those I have identified some of the family figures that appear in Harry’s life in the first three books about the young wizard.
