Yay! We’re back on the dark and evil topics…
Like with the post on my favourite unforgiveable curse, I don’t really have a ‘favourite’ Death Eater. I have a severe dislike for any group whose aim is to persecute another group of people, just because they are different from them. I guess I could go the easy route and say Snape is my favourite Death Eater but then that seems like a predictable answer. Instead, I am going to say my favourite Death Eater is Draco Malfoy.
Draco is very much a reluctant Death Eater, who only seems to join the group because of his family’s association with Voldemort and his pure blood ideals. There are several points in the later books when Draco is not happy with his duties as a Death Eater, including when he is trying to kill Dumbledore and being asked to identify the disguised Harry, Ron and Hermione. Aside from Snape, Draco is one of the few Death Eaters to redeem himself by the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, implying that perhaps he was never fully invested in the Death Eaters’ beliefs. I sometimes wonder if Draco’s parents hadn’t been supporters of Voldemort, would Draco have ever become a Death Eater?
Well, that was my favourite Death Eater, let me know in the comment who is yours! Tomorrow, we are one a more happier topic, my favourite portrait.
