The main conflict in the story Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is Voldemort's return to power, and Harry Potter's protective charm keeping him safe from Voldemort finally breaking at his 17th birthday (33). This is the conflict of the story and not just an important event is since it has been stressed throughout the 6 previous books. Harry has been protected by the charm from Voldemort, or else he'd be dead the day Voldemort returned to power. Plus Voldemort's return has caused quite an enormous threat to the universe Harry lives in. This problem effects mostly everyone in Harry's world since Harry is the only one able to stop Voldemort and without the protection charm, he has a huge disadvantage. And Voldemort causes huge problems since he kills anyone he pleases, muggles, wizards and witches, etc (34/35) So far, Harry's reaction to the conflict is that he is fleeing from his Uncle's house and going under the protection of the Order of the Phoenix as well as Hogwarts's. This is definitely an external problem since Voldemort is killing people (external) and Harry's charm is breaking (external).
First off, the main characters in the book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are Harry Potter himself, his friends Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley, and Voldemort AKA "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named." Minor characters include other students and staff at Hogwarts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry as well as some older wizards and Death Eaters which are supporters of Voldemort, but let's move back to the main characters. Harry Potter's role in the story is very important, I mean come on, the darn book is named after him! He is portrayed as the "Boy Who Lived," being the only person to survive Voldemort, who I'll get into in a bit. This gained him pouring amounts of fame and praise since Voldemort was a terrifying figure in Wizard society, murdering who he pleased and having no recollection of the word mercy. Voldemort, as said before, was a notorious wizard and has returned to power once again. His cruel nature can be shown very well after Severous Snape, a Death Eater and staff member at Hogwarts, cold-bloodedly kills Charity Burbage, another Hogwarts staff memeber, and simply feeds her to his pet snake, Nagani (12). Back to Harry, he seems protective of those he loves and quite angry when provoked. This can be properly seen when Harry reads a passage on a Wizard news article, The Daily Prophet, saying that Albus Dumbledore, who is dead since the last book, wasn't as great of a man as he was thought to be and jabbed quite a bit at Harry himself too. He then proceeds to crumple up the news article, enraged and cries, "LIES!" (28). Harry has proven to be a dynamic character over the last 6 books, learning ever so more and becoming a better person, while Voldemort is a static character, not learning anything and simply being the dull monstrosity he is.
