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!"

A character from the Harry Potter series who teaches potions class and is hated by nearly everyone. Everyone knows Snape was a death eater and they don't know why Dumbledore trusts him. He fought for the love of his life Lily Evans for his entire life, and watched her marry his worst enemy. People all over the world admire Snape for being such a real man and fighting for the love of his life.
“Expecto Patronum!”

From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded one across the office and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.

“After all this time?”

said Severus Snape.

The potions professor in hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. Portrayed by Alan Rickman with his gorgeous voice.

Severus snape was the bravest man I ever knew with his undying love for liky meaning he spent the rest of his life spying until death brought him peace. He is head of slytherin house but has the loyalty of a hufflepuff , the brains of a ravenclaw , the cunning of a Slytherin and the bravery and heart of a Gryffindor.

He wore black for the rest of his life to show mourning for the loss of his friend and love lily. The first sentence he spoke to her son had the hidden meaning of I deeply regret Lily's death. He died in the line of avenging her but his legacy lives on in Harry's youngest son Albus severus.
Severus snape was the bravest man I ever knew.
