The Malfoy Family
 The Malfoys claim to be one of the oldest and strictly pure-blooded wizarding families. They are also deeply entrenched in the Dark Arts, though not openly. Being wealthy gives them a lot of pull with the greedy and the influential within the Ministry of Magic. In private, the Malfoys support the Dark Lord and all that he stands for. They are firm believers that Hogwarts should only accept pure-bloods who know the way of their own kind. Mudbloods are not worthy of being part of the elite Magical world. The Malfoys reside in a mansion in Wiltshire. There is a secret chamber beneath the drawing-room floor where they keep their valuable Dark Arts stuff. The Malfoys had a questionable servant in a house-elf, Dobby, up until 1993.

Draco Malfoy is the son of proud parents Lucius and Narcissa. He takes after his parents in doing their duty to put down all who are poor, virtuous and have questionable lineage. Draco loves to make snide comments and sneer at those he does not like. He has especial hatred for Harry “Scarface” Potter, Hermione “Mudblood” Granger and Ron “Weasel” Weasley for various reasons. Not that he spends much of his time bothering with them—they’re much too beneath him for that. Draco surrounds himself with more suitable company, like Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle, and Pansy Parkinson to simper over him, of course.

Athletic and brilliant, Draco is the star of the Quidditch team and top of his year (at least, out of the ones who count). It’s just that sometimes those lowlifes still allowed in school for some reason beat him by cheating and favoritism. No matter, Draco knows what the important things in life are. He was eager to help the heir of Slytherin purify the school through the Chamber of Secrets, until he found out it was a blood traitor weaselette. He was well liked by the High Inquisitor during her brief term at Hogwarts; she relied heavily on him to perform important duties. When that fame hog Potter had the audacity to land his father in prison, it was up to Draco to uphold the family name. He would serve the Dark Lord proudly and faultlessly. He became a Death Eater at just 16 years old and was entrusted with a most important mission: kill Albus Dumbledore. Draco had always detested Dumbledore’s stance on Mudbloods, so he was determined not to disappoint his master. His Aunt Bellatrix even taught him Occlumency. There were several missteps, and a fight with Potter left him slashed, but he recovered. Though Draco knew he was clever enough to get it done, it took him the entire school year. He repaired the Vanishing Cabinet at Hogwarts allowing other Death Eaters into the school to help dispatch Dumbledore. The Mudblood herself had unknowingly assisted him with ideas. Despite Draco’s swagger, the work took its toll on him, and by the end, he wasn’t quite sure he could commit murder with his own hands. Fulfilling the Unbreakable Vow he made to Draco’s mother, Severus Snape finished the task by killing Dumbledore. Draco fled the castle, but may still face the wrath of the Dark Lord for failing to do the job.

Born:1953 or 1954

Cold, gray eyes

Lucius Malfoy is a very shrewd businessman. He knows how to pull the right strings and pad the right pockets to get what he wants done. He makes connections and contributions in the Ministry of Magic to get favors and delay laws he doesn’t want passed. He’ll make donations to St. Mungo’s to show his goodwill. He strategically positioned himself as a school governor of Hogwarts, so he could have some clout there, too. To the public, he is a generous, distinguished wizard from an old family.

In the privacy of his own home, Lucius is a subscriber to the Dark Arts and a top Death Eater. He believes that blood tells you everything you need to know about a person. Pure-bloods are the only respectable ones, Mudbloods are filth and Muggles don’t deserve to live. So it is not a surprise that he is a loyal follower of the Dark Lord, who permitted the sport of Muggle-torture. However, when his master disappeared, seemingly for good, Lucius did what any smart opportunist would do, he claimed innocence. What good would suffering consequences do if there was no reward? So Lucius pretended he never went down the Dark Side and returned to the world of political manipulation.

In 1992, Lucius put into operation a remnant of the Dark Lord’s belongings, a diary from his days at Hogwarts. He slipped it into the hands of an unsuspecting 11 year old girl, Ginny Weasley, and sat back to watch as havoc unfolded when the Chamber of Secrets opened at Hogwarts once more. The plan disappointingly backfired when the meddlesome Harry Potter destroyed the diary. Lucius and some of his old Death Eater buddies got drunk and celebrated old times with some good Muggle-torture at the ’94 Quidditch World Cup. They were shocked when the Dark Mark appeared in the sky. After that, it was only a matter of time; in June, Lucius felt the familiar burning on his left arm that told him to rejoin his master. He spent the next year working on the Dark Lord’s undertaking to retrieve a prophecy from the Department of Mysteries. Lucius tried using the Imperius Curse on a Department worker, Broderick Bode, but he was unable to take it. Finally, they had to lure the Potter boy to the Ministry and trick him into grabbing it for them. Sadly, the Death Eaters were overmatched having to deal with not only Potter and his little friends, but with interfering members of the Order of the Phoenix and eventually Albus Dumbledore himself. Lucius was captured and thrown into Azkaban to the extreme displeasure of the Dark Lord for his failure.

Malfoy, Narcissa (Black) "Cissy" Malfoy, Narcissa (Black) "Cissy"
Appearance:Blonde, tall and slim
Would be nice looking if she were not wearing a look that suggested there was a nasty smell under her nose

Narcissa is a descendent of the Black line along with her sisters, Bellatrix and Andromeda. Unlike Andromeda, Narcissa married a respectable, wealthy, pure-blood wizard, Lucius Malfoy. Being from the noble and ancient house of Black, she holds most of the same values as her husband. However, for Narcissa, her family is more important to her than the Dark Lord’s plans. Lucius, being in the inner circle of Death Eaters, was caught and imprisoned in ’96, leaving her to deal with the repercussions of being exposed as a Dark supporter. After losing her husband, she was horrified when she learned the Dark Lord intended to put her only son, Draco, on a dangerous assignment. Narcissa knew it was a punishment for Lucius’s slip-up and that he would not care if Draco died in the process. So she risked the wrath of the Dark Lord by going to another Death Eater she trusted, Severus Snape, to ask him to protect her son. Snape promised her he would with an Unbreakable Vow.
