Yeah, that is pretty remarkable. I mean he had his faults of course, but not any more than most people.

It's something that was both a good thing and a bad thing. He could take care of himself and wasn't a spoiled kid like Malfoy, but I think he was reluctant to ask for help sometimes even if he really needed it, which could be a problem at times.
