E! News reports that J.K. Rowling is waxing apologetic once more to fans who may mourn the loss of some of her beloved characters in the final battle of the "Harry Potter" series, the Battle Of Hogwarts. This is the devastating war which breaks out between leaders Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter in "The Deathly Hallows."

According to SyFyWire, J.K. Rowling started apologizing for killing off beloved characters with a Tweet in 2015 about the demise of Fred Weasley, twin to George Weasley, and one of the brave fighting Weasley brothers. On May 2, two decades after the famous fictional Battle of Hogwarts, Rowling has asked forgiveness for killing off Dobby the house elf.

Once enslaved as a house elf by the character Draco Malfoy, Dobby tricked his master, earned his freedom, and then stood by Harry Potter and his friends, only to suffer a fatal blow at the hands of the Death Eaters in the end. This just goes to show that, as the creator of an epic series about children coming of age, J.K. Rowling uniquely killed off beloved and cute characters, with a special amount of carnage in the Battle of Hogwarts.

Killing off the cute character of Dobby the house elf might be considered analogous to permanently killing off R2D2 in the "Star Wars" franchise, but, what was seemingly unthinkable to George Lucas in the "Star Wars" epic was apparently par for the course for J.K.

Rowling in the "Harry Potter" series: Rowling killed off many beloved characters. But why? What was the point?

Is 'Harry Potter' about coming to terms with death?

The epic's villain, Lord Voldemort, is obsessed with his own immortality, magically inserting versions of himself in strange objects in order to preserve his identity, and his power, throughout all of time.

Those who stand with Harry Potter stand against Voldemort and are willing to sacrifice their lives for what is good. Perhaps by killing off beloved characters, J.K. Rowling is teaching us something about valor, and through Voldemort, teaching us about the corruption that can come from clinging to that which seems infinitely good: life itself.

While Voldemort obsesses and is willing to destroy the world to maintain his immortal power, Harry Potter goes willingly to his death in order to save the world from Voldemort.

In The Atlantic, Alice Lesperance writes of the series that Harry Potter struggled to "do what he believed to be right" and "who saw people his age die, who learned that mortality is not something to fear, and who worked through his anger to find strength even when it was hard." In a way, it is this same strength that we as fans gain when we watch characters such as Dobby the house elf die, and die heroically.
