Words and I talked it over, and we decided that Dobby, although he's pretty good at taking out Death Eaters, just wouldn't have the combat experience to deal with Bartimaeus.
Words: Dobby's great and all, but he's WOEFULLY outclassed.
Ink: Poor guy.
Words: Sadface. Ah well.
Ink: I wish Bartimaeus would go easy on him because he's awesome.
Ink: But I don't think he would.
Words: Nope. They'd bond over slavery, though.
Ink: That would be pretty cute. Alright, Bartimaeus wins!
He's an awesome elf, but elves ain't got nothin' on djinn. Although Bartimaeus and Dobby are oddly alike in their social awareness, but I think Dobby's campaigning for better elf rights was ultimately more successful. Politics, yes, combat, no. Sorry, Dobby. Better luck next time!
(Only 5,000 years of hardcore slavery could make you
capable of doing anything other than hugging this elf.)
