A severely snarky Wizard who is a Master at potion brewing. He is an ex-Death Eater who has spent more than a decade spying for a group of "good" Wizards known as the Order of the Phoenix.
He can be described as having shoulder-length, greasy black hair; a long hooked nose; black, lightless eyes; sallow skin; and being skinny and "bat-like" (due to his billowing black robes).
Severus Snape is the former potions instructor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His contract for teaching at the institution ended at the death of his employer. While Severus Snape was indeed the one who cast the curse that killed the late Headmaster of Hogwarts, there has been much debate about wether or not Severus had a choice in the matter. This writer believes that, while Severus may be a horridly cruel man with a haunting past, he would never commit such an act without an extremely good reason.
Severus Snape was a harsh instructor at the school to all but students in his own house (Slytherin).
Severus appears to hate all in his path, but this writer believes his heart is not as cold as it is made out to be.
There are five main catergories of attitudes towards Severus Snape:
Catergory 1: "Meh" You could care less if he was in the book or not. If he dies, great... if not, great. You hardly noticed him until the end of the 6th book and you still don't care what happens to him.
Catergory 2: "That evil @*&%ing bastard!" You are similar to the "meh" catergory, except...
"The bravest man i ever knew"
Before i read Deathly Hallows
ME: I hate severus snape, he needs to keep his big nose out of peoples business.
After i read Deathly Hallows
ME: OMG! SNAPE! OWNZ!
A Potions professor at Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter series.
Snape is generally described as hook-nosed, greasy-haired, pale and thin. His demeanor towards Harry Potter is closest to loathing, for reasons unbeknownst to Harry, until the 7th Harry Potter book. In the final installment, Harry discovers that Snape loved his mother Lily. Snape also despised Harry's father, James, perhaps because of jealousy.
Although Snape hates Harry due to Harry's resemblance of James Potter, he sees his own love's eyes in Harry. Snape is largely responsible for saving Harry's life throughout his school career by working as a double agent for Dumbledore. His death is quick and without glory, but Harry spreads the knowledge of Snape's bravery in the years after his death.
Insert a beautiful doe Patronus, the same Patronus as his unrequited love's, Lily Evans, performed by Snape.
Dumbledore,with tears in his eyes: All this time?
Severus Snape: Always.
every word Severus Snape has ever uttered, every glare, every action. pure sex.
my favourite teacher ever. he is hated by all students, but admired by me!
severus snape is COOL!
Most amazing and awesome of the characters in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Snape is sexy with a bad attitude because he's the onely person in the wizarding world that actually realizes how stupid everyone else is. He's probably amazingly powerful and he hates the annoying git Harry Potter.
"I hate that annoying git Harry Potter and I am sexy and powerful." ~Severus Snape~
