Does everything and everyone in the series drop dead after the final book or something? I noticed almost every article begins with something like, "Harry Potter was a half blood wizard." From my knowledge of the English language, in articles like these it should be "Harry Potter is a half blood wizard." unless the person or thing ceased to exist.

It was done for simplicity. See:Forum:Past/Present tense? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 14:38, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
