One of the founders of Hogwarts, and the namesake of the House of Slytherin.
Also known as Lord Voldemort, a name he gave himself while attending Hogwarts. He was orphaned as a child, and first learned of his ancestry at the age of eleven. His father was a muggle and his mother, a witch. One of the greatest wizards of the time. Known to his clan of supporters, called Death Eaters, as the Dark Lord. All others in the wizarding world are afriad to speak his name, calling him “You-Know-Who”, “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named”, etc.
Attended Hogwarts as a child, and had a strong rivalry with James Potter and Sirius Black. Being a very talented potions master, he was given the job of teaching potions at Hogwarts, but actually yearned for the position of Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. In Harry’s sixth year he was finally given the job of teaching D.A.D.A. He is a “reformed” Death Eater, but is still suspected of having ties to the Dark Lord to the present day. He was considered to be working as a double agent, spying on the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters, for the Order of the Phoenix. After a lengthy battle in the school, Severus used an Unforgivable Curse on Professor Dumbledore, and fled Hogwarts, Death Eaters in toe.
Attended Hogwarts as a child and comes from a pureblood family. He was a very important person in magical society, and was extremely rich. He is a known Death Eater, and was captured in the Ministry of Magic and imprisoned at Azkaban.
