The narrative of the Harry Potter series follows the journey of Harry Potter from the age of eleven to seventeen. During his time at Hogwarts, Harry, along with his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, confronts evil forces and works to defeat Voldemort by destroying Horcruxes. Despite the initial belief that Slytherin house is evil, Harry learns over time that individuals from all houses can be good or bad. Throughout the series, characters exhibit traits that go against the stereotypes associated with their respective houses.

One significant betrayal in Harry's past is by Peter Pettigrew, who lacks the bravery and loyalty traditionally associated with Gryffindor. Hagrid and Ron unfairly judge all Slytherins negatively, perpetuating stereotypes that lead to unfair expectations. Dumbledore, though considered a hero, keeps important secrets from Harry and manipulates events to his advantage. Xenophilius Lovegood's desperation leads him to betray Harry, Ron, and Hermione to the Death Eaters. 

Sirius Black's dangerous prank on Severus Snape highlights the dark side of Gryffindor bravery. Ron's temporary abandonment of his friends and Percy's betrayal of his family demonstrate that loyalty is not always a Gryffindor's best trait. Romilda Vane's unethical use of a love potion and Gilderoy Lockhart's obliviation plans undermine the values associated with their houses. Lastly, a Ravenclaw's betrayal of Dumbledore's Army goes against the core principles of learning and wisdom. These instances challenge the traditional perceptions of each house in the wizarding world.
