Voldemort Art Style Gallery
Voldemort, whose birth name was Tom Marvolo Riddle, was the main antagonist in the Harry Potter book and film series. He was born to a witch mother and a Muggle (non-magical) father, and was orphaned at a young age. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he became fascinated with the dark arts and began to develop a desire for power and immortality. He eventually split his soul into seven parts, hiding them in Horcruxes, in order to achieve this goal.
Voldemort rose to power as the leader of a group of dark wizards known as the Death Eaters, who terrorized the wizarding world during the First Wizarding War. He was ultimately defeated by Harry Potter in the Battle of Hogwarts, in which he was destroyed by his own curse rebounding off of Harry's wand. Voldemort's story serves as a cautionary tale of the dangers of power and the corrupting influence of the desire for immortality.
