Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody (Brendan Gleeson)

Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody (Brendan Gleeson)

Well, this is the end of Mad-Eye's journey, Shmoopers: he dies while the Order of the Phoenix is trying to transport Harry away from his family home in advance of his 17th birthday.

Mad-Eye is his typically gruff and business-like self to the end, though. As the kids and Order members embrace prepare to leave the Dursleys, Mad-Eye has no patience for their attempts to make introductions, catch up, or, really, do anything that wastes time while they need to be on the move:

MAD-EYE: All right, we'll have time for the cozy catch-up later. We've got to get the hell out of here, and soon.

So, no, he's not going to win any award for gentleness, but he was brave and committed to the cause. The others are definitely heartbroken when they learn he's gone.
