The All Knowing Aid
Dumbledore can be see as an all knowing character. Many times through out the series, Dumbledore seems to be aware of and have knowledge of things that others do not and is able to help Harry with it. The problem with this is that at many times Harry must figure out these things on his own. Dumbledore does aid Harry throughout his journey, but he also forces him to find out things that he must on his own. With this he is able to allow Harry to go on with his journey, but intervene when necessary. After his death though, Harry is forced to figure out everything that Dumbledore may have already been aware of on his own. Dumbledore had to have had fate in Harry that he would be able to figure out what he must do to defeat Voldemort, because if not he would have have right up told Harry everything he needed to know.
