Ten of the best scars in fiction

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best examples of scars in fiction.

One scar on the list:
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling

The lightning-flash cicatrix on Harry's forehead, evidence of Voldemort's attempt to kill him as a baby, throbs when things get dangerous. But Professor Dumbledore declines to repair it. "Scars can come in useful. I have one myself above my left knee which is a perfect map of the London Underground."
Read about another scar on Mullan's list.
