V is for Voldemort (Quote of the Week) #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of antagonists.

On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will tie that day’s topic to antagonists but on the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about antagonists from movies, TVs or books. On Wednesdays, my Quote of the Week will be from an antagonist that matches the letter of the day. Enjoy.

“I’m going to kill you, Harry Potter. I’m going to destroy you.
After tonight, no one will ever again question my power. After tonight if they speak of you, they’ll only speak of how you begged for death. And how I being a merciful Lord… obliged.” ~ Lord Voldemort (the power hungry antagonist from the Harry Potter books/movies. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – 2005)

V is for Voldemort #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of characters. On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting, Wednesday – quotes, and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will focus on characteristics. On the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about characters from movies, TVs or books.

VToday the letter is V for Voldemort from the Harry Potter series of books from J.K. Rowlings. Often referred to as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named or You-Know-Who by characters, Lord Voldemort is the archenemy of Harry Potter who according to prophecy has the power to vanquish the Dark Lord.

voldermortVoldemort is a powerful wizard who is feared by many in the wizarding world. He is a sadist who hurts and murders people just for pleasure. He has no conscience, feels no remorse, and does not recognize the worth of anyone other than himself.

Like many archetypical villains, Voldemort’s arrogance leads to his downfall.  His quest for power and belief that he cannot be defeated contribute to his ultimate destruction. He is definitely a villain that is easy to hate.
