Harry Potter Alignments

Good vs. Evil
Good respects the life and dignity of sentient beings and will defend it to the point of sacrifice.
Neutral is against killing innocent life and will defend it but is unwilling to sacrifice for it.
Evil stands for oppression, harming and killing others. Some have no compassion and will kill for sport.
Lawful vs. Chaotic
Law stands for honor, trustworthiness, obedience to authority, and tradition. May include closed-mindedness, automatic obedience to tradition, judgmentalness and lack of adaptability. 
Neutral has a moderate, tempered respect for authority and feels neither the compulsion to obey nor to rebel. Often obedient but lacks the guilt a lawful would feel when breaking the “law”. May be tempted to lie and deceive.
Chaotic stands for freedom, adaptability and flexibility. Lacks concern for tradition or social mores, often rebellious. May include recklessness, resentment of legitimate authority, and irresponsibility.
