Thor's Day Hero: Gilderoy Lockhart
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry goes through professors in Defence against the Dark Arts like Spinal Tap goes through drummers. Gilderoy Lockhart happens to be one of those Defence against the Dark Arts professors.
We've had a lot of initiates within the Thor's Day Heroes, but Gilderoy is our first mage. There's also another first here and that's where I admit if I could be like any of the Thor's Day Heroes, it'd be this guy. Sure, he's obnoxious and technically a fraud, but he's got moxie. He's full to the brim with the stuff and exudes confidence, especially in himself. Mind you, that confidence is probably a defensive mechanism for a profound lack of self confidence, but nobody's perfect.
Just spend ten minutes in his presence and he'll tell you of all his past exploits. Never a more daring or heroic saga will you hear. He's obviously got the skills, and the brash tenacity to use those skills regardless of personal safety in the face of danger. Welcome to the Thor's Day Heroes Lockhart, you're bound to class up the place.
