The Death Eaters

“They were a motley collection; a mixture of the weak seeking

protection, the ambitious seeking some shared glory, and the

thuggish gravitating toward a leader who could show them more

refined forms of cruelty.”

—Albus Dumbledore on the forerunners of the Death Eaters.

 

The Death Eaters (originally the Knights of Walpurgis) was the name given to Lord Voldemort’s followers. The group primarily consisted of wizards and witches who were pure blood supremacists, who practiced the Dark Arts without regard or fear of Wizarding law. Lord Voldemort used this select group of wizards and witches during both the First and Second Wizarding Wars, employing them as his elite force. They often wore black hoods with snake-like eye slits to cover their faces. Only the members of the inner circle of the Death Eaters had Dark Marks burned into their left forearms. When Voldemort touched one of them, each of the Death Eaters felt it, signaling for them to Apparate to their leader’s side. Read the rest of this entry »

Cedric Diggory

Remember, if the time should come, when you have to make a

choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what

happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because

he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.

Remember Cedric Diggory.

—Albus Dumbledore

 

Cedric Diggory (1977 – 24 June, 1995) was the son of Amos Diggory and his wife. He started attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1989, and was sorted into Hufflepuff. During his time at the school, he was a prefect, and captained the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, playing as Seeker. In his sixth year, Cedric put his name forward to compete in the Triwizard Tournament. He was selected as the Hogwarts Triwizard Champion, and, although overshadowed in the press by the entry of Harry Potter, Cedric enjoyed almost overwhelming support from the student body, and, after the first two tasks, tied with Harry for first place. Cedric and Harry completed the Third Task together, and both took hold of the Triwizard Cup which transported them to the Little Hangleton graveyard. In the graveyard, Cedric was murdered by Peter Pettigrew with the Killing Curse, on the orders of Lord Voldemort. During the following duel between Harry and Voldemort, Cedric’s spirit reappeared during Priori Incantatem, and helped the spirits of Harry’s parents, Bertha Jorkins, and Frank Bryce hold off Voldemort long enough for him to escape. His only request was for Harry to take his body back to his parents, which Harry honoured.

The Marauder’s Map

“Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs

Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief-Makers

are proud to present THE MARAUDER’S MAP”

—The Marauder’s Map

The Marauder’s Map is a magical document that reveals all of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Not only does it show every classroom, every hallway, and every corner of the castle, but it also shows every inch of the grounds, as well as all the secret passages that are hidden within its walls and the location of every person in the grounds, portrayed by a dot. It is also capable of accurately identifying each person, and is not fooled by animagi, polyjuice potions, or invisibility cloaks.It can also reveal secret passages the Marauders found, though it only did this on one known occasion (in his third year, Harry Potter was shown how to use the statue of the humpbacked witch to enter Hogsmeade Village).
