Re: Grindelwald: Character Analysis

What did you think of him?

We don't know a huge amount about him. We don't really know what he was like at his prime in comparison to Voldemort

What did you make to his and Dumbledore's blossoming friendship?

It makes sense. Dumbledore and Grindelwald were similar. They were both intelligent, young men who were lonely (well Dumbledore was anyway). They bonded because of that.

For the greater good - did they have a point (albeit not going about the right way)?

Maybe its just matter of opinion.

Did the fact he was prepared to die rather than betray the wand's whereabouts redeem him?

Redemption is an important theme in the books and i think it was noble of Grindelwald to not betray the wands whereabouts. Severus Snape redeemed himself and that was essential for the downfall of Voldemort. I think Grindelwald has redeemed him to a certain extent
