Is Harry the last horcrux?

by David Haber

In Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince, we learned that, to make himself immortal, Lord Voldemort ripped his soul into seven pieces, and created six horcruxes (the seventh piece of his soul still residing in his body). We know or suspect about five of the horcruxes. Is it possible that Harry is the sixth horcrux? There are clues to suggest that he is.

I think Dumbledore was a Horcrux of Voldemort because I don't see the point why he would himself. It is just a thought.

I think that the Sorting Hat is a Horcrux. We know from the song that it sang at the start of GOF that it belonged to Gryffindor. This could have been what Voldermort wanted from Hogwarts. Harry also thinks at the end of THBP that the last thing is something of Ravenclaws or Gryffindors.

It seems highly unlikely that Harry is the last horcrux. Even after the psychic connection developed between Harry and Voldemort, Voldemort tried to Harry in their showdown at the ministry (in OotP). However, I agree with those who suggest that the tiara Mrs. Weasley mentions in the end of HBP could be a relic of Ravenclaws.

Ruth -
Interesting. Nifty idea, but why would Molly mention something of Ravenclaw's when the Weasleys have only ever been associated with Gryffindor? However, wasn't there a tiara in the Room of Requirement? Didn't Harry use it to make the bust he placed on what I believe is the vanishing cabinet "more distinctive"?

Monkeeshrines from Orlando,

We are on the same page, I have posted before that I believe the Tiara is the one in the Room of Requirement, and that Harry somehow remember it after seeing the other one at the Weasly-Delacour wedding.

What if Harry was a horcrux from the initial events at Godrics Hollow and this was, on Voldemort's part, an accident. He then uses Harry's blood to fully regenerate in GOF therefore using one of his horcrux(s). This could explain Dumbledore's "glint of triumph" in his eye when Harry explains the events of that night in the graveyard. This probaly does not make sense as it begs the question why Dumbledore did not make this known to Harry in HBP.

this is an awesome article with lots of evidence and clues. i am not sure if harry would be a horcrux, but if he is, then how would he destroy voldy and still survive?
well i say harry might create a horcrux of his own, then somehow he would , ing the horcrux in him, come back using the horcrux he has made and then destroy voldy. wild thought i know, but its just an idea.

Now I get the point. While voldermort got to know about his fall he tried to Harry. Accidently a horcrux was created. (So far never has rowling told how a horcrux is made.)

Ivan Martinez from Inglewood,

Do you really think that Harry would make a Horcrux?

After all, Dumbledore has told Harry that Horcruxes are evil, and that he would not like such an existance, also take into consideration that just making a Horcrux would not automatically give you your body back. It took Voldy 13 years to come back to a body, what makes you think that Harry could do it?

Posted by Emilio from Mexico City, Mexico on April 11, 2007 08:46 AM

Here's my theory on this.
If Harry is the last horcrux and he has destroyed all the others he should go to a point in time where he has the opportunity to voldemort and miss the chance without getting himself ed. Then he should get a timepiece, similar to the one hermione used in the third book and use it to go back in time to that point, hence there would be two harrys, past harry and present harry. Past harry should himself and in the time it takes for the past to catch up with the present, present harry should voldemort.
I know it's a little far fetched but I believe its possible.

I highly doubt that Harry is the last Horcrux. That clue where Hagrid tells him a powerful evil curse resulted in the scar isn't really a valid clue at all to point out that Harry is a Horcrux. Isn't the Avada Kedavra curse also a powerful evil curse?

Posted by Robert from California on April 12, 2007 5:55 PM

I think that there is a horcrux in harry's scar, but when voldemort used harry's blood to survive, half of the horcrux in harry's body went back to voldemort. so the sixth horcrux is shared betwen voldermort and harry.
