Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived, suffered a remarkably similar past to the child Tom Riddle when he was put into the foster care system as an infant. He grew up equally charismatic, just as cunning, and with the same love for the chaotic.
But, with no amorentia flowing through his veins, Harry did not share the same struggles to understand or to feign human emotions.
Perhaps it was because of this, Dumbledore would muse many years into the future, that he had never suspected Harry as he had done with young Tom. At least, not until it was far too late.
Harry's chosen allegiances were ones that they would never see coming.
