Harry did not kill Quirrell in the book
Harry did not kill Quirrell in the book. His hands only blister Quirrell's. Dumbledore tells Harry in the infirmary that "(Voldemort) left Quirrell to die". I take this to mean that Quirrell died because Voldemort abandoned his soul (since Quirrell was unable to get the Stone, due to his hands blistering). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs).
- First of all, the way you were going about attempting to remove him from this category was incorrect. To do so, you need to remove the category from the page in question (in this case, Quirinus Quirrell); the category listing is not actually part of the page itself.
- Anyway, Quirrell died as a direct result of the wounds Harry inflicted on him; Voldemort leaving his body only sped up that process by weakening him. It could also be said that Voldemort would not have left Quirrell if Harry hadn't damaged him, so even if we do accept Voldemort leaving Quirrell as the cause of death, Harry is still the killer as he caused the action in question. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 03:01, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
