Lily Potter Jr.


One thing I am confused about is why Harry couldn't see thestrals to begin with. He saw is mother die. Do you have to remember it?  Aaaaargh!

Apparently JK Rowling answered this back in 2003. She said that the death has to sink in for somebody to see the Thestrals.

From an interview with Stephen Fry in 2003:

  • Stephen Fry: Harry saw his parents die, so why hasn't he been able to see the Thestrals before?
  • JK Rowling: At the end of Goblet of Fire, we sent Harry home more depressed than he had ever been leaving Hogwarts. Now I knew that the Thestrals were coming and I can prove that because they are in the book that I produced for Comic Relief, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, these unlucky black winged horses.

What Dumbledore said and she also said somewhere that, when he saw his parents die, he was too young to remember it later on in life.

I work in hospital and I have one painful memory about somebody's death. It was traumatic because a girl got mad at me because of her mother's death. She said it was my responsibility. I wonder if I could see a Thestral too. It don't really care the woman who dead in front of me. Being blamed about it that gave the scar on me.
