The Harry Potter series, both book and films alike has become a significant part of popular culture.

In the series, we meet a myriad of characters, all of whom are either witches or wizards.

With the ability to use their wands to perform any task they wish, fans from all over the world turn green with envy at their magical powers.

But, what if Harry Potter characters weren't magical beings, and were, in fact, muggles? Where would Harry, Ron, and Hermione be at age twenty-something? Would Dumbledore still be as powerful? What about Voldemort? This article looks at where these characters would be if they never knew magic, and were just ordinary muggles.

Harry Potter
Harry, whose parents died in a car crash, continued to grow up under the abuse of the Dursley's.

Harry eventually runs away from the Dursley's and is now in and out of homeless shelters, trying to find a relative he can turn to for support.

Albus Dumbledore
Albus is a professor at Oxford University where he encourages students to use their imagination and explore all boundaries of life. He is loved and respected by his colleagues and students for his brain, wise jokes, and philanthropy.

Dumbledore plans on taking a group of students to homeless shelters across the country in hopes to spread joy during the holidays.

Tom Riddle
Tom, currently marked as "The Most Dangerous Man in England", is on death row for going on a killing spree, murdering over seven people.

There are a number of books written about him, one titled, "The Soul Splitting Tale of Tom Riddle".

Sirius Black
Sirius has just been released from prison after serving a sentence for a crime he did not commit. In hopes of finding a glimmer of happiness, he tries tracking down the Dursley family to find his godson.

After hearing Harry has run away, he loses all hope- until he hears about a program that his alma mater has planned. He then goes with Professor Dumbledore to hopefully find Harry.

Ron Weasley
Ron attends a community college after dropping out of his university and works part-time at a sports merchandise shop. At the shop Ron buys discounted paraphernalia of his favorite football team.

Ron is interested in contacting his brother Percy to look into easy internships at England's Parliament.

Fred and George Weasley
Fred and George started working with their father at his magic shop with their own line of gag products.

They were recently given a deal with a big company and live away from home in another country.

At her internship, she meets an employee named Percy, and they become fast friends. Hermione is thinking of inviting Percy and his family over for the holidays to encourage their reconciliation.

Luna Lovegood
Following in her father's footsteps, Luna takes on the role as the youngest editor of a creative magazine where she writes about a number of conspiracy theories and provides evidence that mythical and magical creatures exist.

Her latest article features an owner of a magic shop, who has a number of interesting collectible items.

Neville Longbottom
Neville loves botany and has his own greenhouse in his grandmother's backyard where he grows a number of interesting plants, making his income off of what he sells to consumers. One popular plant in particular receives a lot of well-paying and happy customers.

If you catch my drift.

Draco Malfoy

When he returns, he will return to his home with his mother, father, and mentally insane aunt, Bellatrix Lestrange.
