The Potions Master at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. In book 6, he became the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and in the 7th, became the Headmaster and got killed by Lord Voldemort's snake, Nagini. To this day, no one knows if his portrait resides in the Headmaster's room, but seeing as how he was a one, most guess yes. He at first had a goatee in the book's illustrations, but since portrayed by Alan Rickman, he apparently shaved it off. He has many fangirls (me included), but I am one of the sane ones, people. He is also extremely hot. And yes I had to say that.
Severus Snape is extremely smart and handsome. He loves Lily Evans, who marries James Potter instead, and turned over to the good side the moment Voldemort threatened her. I love him, but I know that it will never happen.

is what many may call heroic, a daring, bold, brave, not-afraid-to-stand-up-to-the-Dark-Lord kind of person. Nowadays, we shorten it to badass.
Random person who just finished watching Deathly Hallows: Isn't Neville Longbottom just soo badass? He killed Nagini, Voldemort's horcrux!

Knowledgable person: Professor Severus Snape saved Harry's life several times and he played spy for Dumbledore. He's more badass than Neville Longbottom!

Severus Snape is the Potions teacher of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is also the head of Slytherin, and notorious for hating any house but his own, especially Gryffindor, and especially Harry Potter, the title character of the widely popular series.

Severus is described to be tall and lanky, have sallow, tired skin, greasy black hair, moustache, and goatee, and to be, well, batlike and quite ugly in general. He was widely hated by all Potter fans until Alan Rickman came along. Alan Rickman, a very suave, graceful man with a silky British voice, was cast to play Severus in the movies. When our sexy-for-a-sixty-year-old friend suddenly appeared, Severus went from being loathed, to an object of greatness for some.

Most of these 'some' are ditzy fangirls, who often have sexual fantasies about Severus, or write fanfiction about his gay and/or illegal relationships with other characters or themselves. The other small percentage of this category just think he's awesome, has a cool voice/accent, and has had a sucky life. Those few also believe that he does not deserve to have fangirls clinging to his robes every second, letting out ear-shattering squeals of fangasming.
Severus Snape: "I am Professor Snape, the Potions Master."
Fangirl: "SQUEE! I can has yoo do secksiness with Harry andz Draco plz?"
Severus: "I am sorry. I do not speak fangirl. Ten points from Gryffindor."
Fangirl: "OHEMSQUEE!"
Cool Person: "Oh my fricken' gawd shut the hell up!"

Severus runs away as the Cool Person whips out a chainsaw and battles the merciless Fangirl to the death, but not before rewarding the Cool Person with a galleon.
Cool Person: Thanks Severus!
Severus shouts back while running away, "Don't spend it all in one place!"
