After rereading the order of the phoenix, i have begun to think that harry might be a horcrux instead of nagini. While harry was sitting in dumbledores office after having the dream about Mr. Weasley getting bit by Nagini, dumbledore pulled out a silver instrument and tapped it with his wand. the smoke that came out changed into a snake. then dumbledore asks "But in essence divided?" then the snake split into two seperate snakes. dumbledore then puts the instrument away with a look of "grim satisfaction. i think that he was checking if voldemorts soul and harrys were still seperate or if they had merged.
