Harry Potter Moment #208

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Happy Potter-Thursday all!! I just realized I never posted last week, so I'm going to  go ahead and post last week's topic today and hopefully catch up with this week's topic in a few:

Which character confused you the most through the series?

Is it a cop-out if I go with Dumbledore? I mean, I'm pretty sure he was supposed to confuse us - he sure as shit confused Harry on a regular basis!  It's not like I ever wondered if he was bad or anything (MAN, THAT would have been a twist!) but his motives always held more than what we were led to believe. Was he protecting Harry? Was he training him up to face Voldemort? Which did he care more about, the protecting or the training? He certainly always had riddles and guessing games for Harry to play. And whenever he did reveal information, he always held the most important stuff back.  To me it was always clear that he knew more than he was letting on and the constant guessing about whatever secret he was holding on to kept me confused through most of the books.  

I still love the man though and no one will convince me otherwise.  If Harry was 'Dumbledore's man through and through' well that's good enough for me.  Sure I might have wanted some things to go down differently from what they did but I know Dumbledore cared for Harry and tried to do what was best - at the same time. He walked a tight line but he did it better than any of us would have.

So tell me: what character confused you the most in the series?
