As a character I think Draco Malfoy is a massive disappointment. His character arc basically flows from bully to a little punk to an edgy bitch to a pathetic loser to a shell of a person. And it's a major shame that his character is so utterly unimportant to the overall plot of the series and unimportant to Harry's character.
And it's such a shame because there's so much potential. Having a solid rival character is such a staple of so many series. They often really raise up the main character and end up being fan favorites
in their own right. Anime and many video game properties often really nail this rival troupe. Riku from Kingdom Hearts and
Sasuke from Naruto being the best examples I'm familiar with. And I could really see a theoretical Draco rewrite that follows this same arc.
Draco starts off the first year being a genuine friend to Harry, Ron, and
Hermoine. Develops solid relationships with them. As he gets older and the school years go on, Draco's father starts to have more influence on his son. And with the return of Voldemort, Lucius starts indoctrinating his son. It's at this time that
Draco cuts his ties to Harry, Ron, and
Hermione due to his prejudges again
Harry, the Weasleys, and Mudbloods. But due to their former friendship, he still sees
Harry as a genuine rival. From friend to rival to enemy. And then, as all of these dark anime rivals do, they turn back to the light by the end of the story. He betrays
Voldemort in some way. He ends up being a hero as well, just with a darker path along the way to get there.
