       Another of Hagrid's greatest traits is his courage, and he is a very capable fighter against evil.   He is also very loyal to his cause and his friends, ready to defend and even fight for them if need be.

           Hagrid is the one tasked to protect Harry as a young child.  Harry Potter and Hagrid have a special relationship.

With the proper guidance, our Hagrid will embody all the great characteristics of his breed and his namesake.
