- Rubeus Hagrid -

Hagrid is the half-giant Keeper of Keys and Grounds, gamekeeper and "Care of Magical Creatures teacher". Later in the series, it is revealed that Hagrid is also a member of the Order of the Phoenix.
Hagrid has a friendly, soft-hearted personality and is easily driven to tears. He is very loyal to his peers, especially Dumbledore, to whom he refers as the greatest wizard in the world multiple times.
Hagrid is mentioned as being twice as tall as the average man and nearly three times as wide but in the movie his height is mentioned as 8 foot 6 (roughly 2.6 metres). Being a half-giant, he is less vulnerable to jinxes and spells than full-humans. In Order of the Phoenix, when Umbridge and some other wizards come to remove him from Hogwarts he fights back. They try to jinx and stun him, but the spells just bounce off him because of giant-inherited resistance to magic.
Hagrid was a student at Hogwarts from the griffindor's house. When he came into possession of an acromantula, he was expelled from Hogwarts as his pet was supposed to be the "monster of Slytherin". Following his expulsion, the Ministry of Magic broke Hagrid's oak wand and forbade him from performing magic.Hagrid keeps the pieces of his wand in a pink umbrella, and performs small spells from time to time; however, he was technically forbidden to do magic until the third book, and since he is not a fully qualified wizard, he is somewhat deficient in it as compared to other adult wizards.Persuaded by Dumbledore Headmaster Armando Dippet agreed to train Hagrid as gamekeeper, allowing the boy to remain at Hogwarts. By the time Harry attends Hogwarts, Hagrid is also the Keeper of Keys and Grounds: the former, according to Rowling, means "that he will let you in and out of Hogwarts.
