Draco inherited features from both of his parents: he has light blond hair, a pointed face, gray eyes and fair skin (PS5). Draco was the typical spoiled child who counts on his parents to solve any problem that he might have (PA7).
However, when Hermione literally knocked him in the face; he saw the light. Hermione enters the Ball with Viktor and literally leaves Draco speechless. Hermione definitely needed someone who could match her intellectually. Malfoy defied Lord Voldemort and his parents for Hermione. Rowling even suggested that Draco bullying Hermione was like adolescent hair pulling on the playground.He rarely ever uses magic in his attempts to infuriate people, prefering using words than curses to offend people (PS6, PS11, CS13, PA5, PA6, PA15, GF11, GF18, GF31, GF37, OP10, OP28, OP38).Although he curses Neville Longbottom for no reason at all in their first year (PS14), he generally tries to use magic to avoid people from talking about his mother (GF10, HBP6).He's constantly bullying the younger students and enjoys being in a position of power (OP10, OP28).Although enjoying intimidating other people, even saying that he would have liked if Hermione Granger was killed by the Basilisk instead of petrified or making jokes about Cedric Diggory's death, he seems to be disgusted when he sees other people suffering (DH1, DH23).
