According to author J. K. Rowling, the idea for both the Harry Potter books and its eponymous protagonist came while waiting for a delayed train from Manchester to London in 1990. JK Rowling stated that in these hours, her idea for "this scrawny, black-haired, bespectacled boy who didn't know he was a wizard became more and more real to me." While she fleshed out the ideas for her book, Rowling also decided to make Harry an orphan and to make him visit a boarding school which she called Hogwarts. She explained in a 1999 interview with The Guardian: "Harry HAD to be an orphan - so that he's a free agent, with no fear of letting down his parents, disappointing them Hogwarts HAS to be a boarding school - half the important stuff happens at night! Then there's the security. Having a child of my own reinforces my belief that children above all want security, and that's what Hogwarts offers Harry."
