Re: James Potter: Character Analysis v.4

I wonder if it simply came down to the fact that the Longbottoms were Aurors and the Potters were not. They both defied him three times but the potters did it out of loyalty to Dumbledore and the Longbottoms did because that was their jobs. James and Lily wanted to prevent Voldemort from winning the war and were willing to risk their lives to do so. The Longbottoms fought him because it was their duty as Aurors. Maybe to Voldemort that made the Potters more of a threat and their son more likely to be the chosen one.

James must have tried wandless magic to defend his family but I feel that for James like for most wizards wandless magic is not as easily controlled and he simply did his best for his family and died trying.
