Quidditch tournaments are similar to the “marvellous tents” put up for knightly tournaments, imaginary animals like dragons and unicorns which exist around Hogwarts, and the banners with heraldic animals for the four Houses of Hogwarts.[40] Many of the motifs of the Potter stories such as the hero’s quest invoking objects that confer invisibility, magical animals and trees, a forest full of danger and the recognition of a character based upon scars are drawn from medieval French Arthurian romances.[40] Other aspects borrowed from French Arthurian romances include the use of owls as messengers, werewolves as characters, and white deer.[40] The American scholars Heather Arden and Kathrn Lorenz in particular argue that many aspects of the Potter stories are inspired by a 14th-century French Arthurian romance, Claris et Laris, writing of the “startling” similarities between the adventures of Potter and the knight Claris.[40] Arden and Lorenz noted that Rowling graduated from the University of Exeter in 1986 with a degree in French literature and spent a year living in France afterwards.[40] Arnden and Lorenz wrote about the similarity between the Arthurian

periodically venture forth from to the magical forest that surrounds Hogwarts.[40] In the same way that knights in the Arthurian romances usually have a female helper, who is very intelligent and has a connection with nature, Harry has Hermione who plays a similar role.[40] Like an Arthurian knight, Harry receives advice and encouragement from his mentor, Albus Dumbledore, who resembles both Merlin and King Arthur, but must vanquish his foes alone.[40] Arnden and Lorenz wrote that with Rowling’s books, the characters are “…not a simple reworking of the well-known heroes of romance, but a protean melding of different characters to form new ones…”.[40] However, Lorenz and Arnden argue the main inspiration for Harry Potter was Sir Percival, one of the Knights of the Round Table who searches for the Holy Grail.[40] Both Potter and Sir Percival had an “orphaned or semi-orphaned youth, with inherent nobility and powers”, being raised by relatives who tried to keep them away from the places where they really belong, Hogwarts and Camelot respectively.[40] Both Percival and Potter are however outsiders in the places that they belong, unfamiliar with the rules of knighthood and magic, but both show extraordinary natural abilities with Percival proving himself an exceptional fighter while Potter is an excellent player of Quidditch.[40] And finally, both Percival and Potter
