Fictional characters named Mattheo

  • An unofficial character from the Harry Potter world is Mattheo Riddle. But what does “unofficial character” mean in this case? The world of Harry Potter, created by author Joanne K. Rowling involves a complex construct of fictional characters connected by centuries of kinship, relationships, and friendship. Many of the characters she created do not even appear in person in the Harry Potter books and films. In addition to the official books, J.K. Rowling also published several short stories and tales based around the world she created. However, there is no Mattheo Riddle in these - he is the invention of fans of the Hogwarts universe. A big trend nowadays are the so-called fanfictions, i.e. stories that continue the story from existing novels and tell alternative plots. On platforms like Wattpad, amateur authors can then upload their works for other fans to read. The character of Mattheo Riddle is therefore also a product of fanfiction, but this figure still enjoys great popularity on the Internet.
