Primary villain in J.K Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Born Tom Marvolo Riddle, named for father and maternal grandfather. Originally an attractive, charming person with the ability to hide his evil intent, but later becomes rather more conspicuous.

Constantly attempting to track down Harry and finish killing him, having failed and been temporarily disembodied by the attempt when Harry was a baby.

Pale skin, red eyes, slitted notrils, high, cold voice. Skinny, with long fingers. May or may not wear underwear under those robes, as none has ever been mentioned when Wormtail was dressing him, or in the movie where he conjured up his robes. Oh, and he has really delicate-looking feet- barefoot tapping of Cedric's face reveals this fact. The hands are almost girlish, too. ;)

Uses Dark Magic, has a lot of devoted followers named Death Eaters. Has experimented with various evil powers, and is determined to gain immortality. Has split his soul, hence the freakish inhuman(but badass) looks. Speaks Parseltongue(snake language).

Utterly ruthless, incapable of love. Not the sort you want to meet in a dark alley, unless you're holding a deathwish/are his fangirl/fanboy.

Disturbingly large fanbase, including those wishing to *ahem*speak to his snake. :p
Read. The. Books.

Lord Voldemort, circa resurrection in movie: *hyper*
Y'know, being restored to semi-human form seems to have done wonders for his energy level. ;)

Bellatrix: OMG my lord I lub you!!!
Lord Voldemort: Greeeeeaaaatttt....

Deluded fangirl: He's misunderstood...*sniff*

More aware fangirl: Sure, he's evil...but that is SO cool.

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

The arch-villian in the Harry Potter series. He was born Tom Marvolo Riddle to Merope Gaunt, a cross-eyed descendent of Salazar Slytherin and Tom Riddle Senior, a handsome, rich and cocky muggle.

Already calculating and shrewd as a boy, he grew to be one of the most feared dark wizards of all time.

His main aim, presumably, is to achieve immortality, rid the world of muggles and take over the wizarding world.

Is often called 'Voldy' by fans.
My English teacher looks like Lord Voldemort.

The sexiest and most awesome character to ever walk the earth. He can do whatever he feels like and not get booked. Unfortunately, he his killed by Harry Potter because he was too sexy.
Harry Potter: Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the sexiest of them all?

Mirror: Lord Voldemort is the sexiest of them all.

Harry Potter: Then I must kill him! >:)

As a result of having seven horcruxes, Voldemort has red eyes, pale white skin and no nose.

Some people mispell his name as Voldermort. He is Harry Potter's enemy (he murdered Harry's parents and a whole lot of other people and would have killed Harry too except for the protection Harry's mom bestowed on Harry as a baby just before she died.)
He makes appearances in the following books:
Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire

Lord Voldemort is a very evil person and it is wise that muggles (non-magic people) stay away from him and he takes pleasure in killing people.
