Tom Marvolo Riddle[8] (1927[1] - 1998[2]) was a half-blood wizard and a murderer, deemed to be the most powerful dark wizard of all time. He died at age seventy-one in the Battle of Hogwarts, destroyed by his own rebounding Killing Curse[2]. He killed James and Lily Potter[9].

BiographyEdit

1995Edit

Fourteen years after his downfall at the hands of infant Harry Potter, the Dark Lord was finally brought to life by his loyal servant Peter Pettigrew[4] on 24 June, 1995[10].

Physical appearanceEdit

Voldemort had gleaming red eyes that shone in the darkness, with vertical, slit pupils like a cat's[4]. He had no nose, but only slits for nostrils; his face was whiter than a skull[4]. His hands were very odd, his fingers spider-like[4].
