The A to Z of Harry Potter
D is for Dobby
"Dobby was a house-elf who served the Malfoy Family for many years. His masters treated him cruelly, until Harry Potter freed him by tricking Lucius Malfoy into giving Dobby an item of clothing. In 1998, Dobby was severely injured whilst attempting to rescue many prisoners of Malfoy Manor. He later died. Harry Potter dug Dobby’s grave at Shell Cottage with the gravestone which reads ‘Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf’".
