Lord Voldemort is the notorious Dark wizard of the magical world. Born "Tom Marvolo Riddle", his fascination with the Dark Arts during his schooling at Hogwarts
School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, led to his quest for immortality.
Voldemort has chosen Horcruxes as his path to immortaily. He is believed to be the only wizard to have created more than one Horcrux, leaving his soul incredibly fragile and unbalanced. His Horcruxes reside in his Diary, the Gaunt ring, Locket of Slytherin, Hufflepuff's cup, Ravenclaw's diadem, his pet snake Nagini, and most incredible of all, and by accident, inside Harry Potter
, the boy whom he failed to kill in his desperation to remove obstacles in his path to domination over the wizarding world.
After his downfall in 1981, which we all know was when the Killing curse he cast failed to kill the victim, Harry Potter, and rebounded on Voldemort himself, not much was seen or heard of Voldermort for 13 years, until 1994, where he made his now famous return to power.
In 1997, during the Battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort was killed by Harry Potter in a duel sure to be remembered for the rest of time. His legacy is of death and destruction, as he destroyed the lives of so many.
Voldemort's followers were known as Death eaters
and were each branded with a tatto depicting a snake emerging from the mouth of a skull.
Voldemort is also known as You-Know-Who, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and the Dark Lord.
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did terrible things. Terrible, yes, but great.
"There is no good an evil, there is only power... and those to weak to seek it" - Lord Voldemort
