Hogwarts Extreme : An Interactive Harry Potter RPG Preamble Disclaimer Harry Potter, Hogwarts, and all distinctive likenesses thereof are either copyright or registered trademarks of Warner Bros., J.K. As the British state begins to unravel, and journalists compete to pronounce on the death of Britain, a schoolboy from suburban Surrey who lives for most of the year in a semi-parallel universe becomes the most popular figure in contemporary world literature. Now read on ...everyone else does ...Harry Potter is an orphan, oppressed and abused by the adults around him, who retreats into a fantasy world. But ironically, as Andrew Blake makes clear, J.K.
