Sadly, their deaths are mostly offscreen. In fact, just about everybody is killed almost entirely offscreen. The violence is severely lacking in this entry it does pop when it appears but for a slasher flick, this is wayyyy too interested in plot and almost entirely disinterested in carnage. For example, at one point the narrative takes us to an empty barn that is filled with a litter of adorable kitties. There is a lot of footage of people just playing with said kitties.
Like a lot. If I remember correctly, the cats initially provide a jump scare, but are soon forgotten once the teenagers who find them start having sex with each other and are subsequently killed with farm tools. This is how the entire movie feels. Even the official subtitle The Revenge of Michael Myers makes no appearance in the movie.
Smells like production woes to me. Just what is Michael Myers getting revenge for? Vengeance being a cyclical curse is an invalid defense when you are the source of the original wrongdoing, which Michael Myers most certainly is. There are also two characters who I could only determine the fate of using extra-canonical wiki information. Young Billy may or may not have been run over by a car, and the distractingly gorgeous Tina, may or may not have been killed via stabbing.
Plus, I am just too gobsmacked by the finale to think of much else at this point. Mikey approaches the vandal in anger and receives the same hand rake right through the skull. Watch it here:. Worst Line: This one is courtesy of the two zany cops, Nick and Tom. It comes at a moment when they are taking the potential threat of a Michael Myers attack rather lightly.
I forget which guy is which, so my apologies if I get their names wrong. This really happens in a movie that claims to be interested in producing scares. Mask: The face of the mask looks a lot younger this time around, which as I understand it was a choice made to give Michael Myers a bit more of a human feel. The filmmakers thought this necessary for the later scenes in which Myers comes face to face with Loomis, who goes full psychoanalyst on him.
In fact, the scariest that Myers ever is in this entry is during a scene that finds him wearing a goofy gangster mask instead. In the ensuing battle , Voldemort murdered Alastor Moody. When he attempted to attack Harry, Harry's wand acted of its own accord, releasing golden fire at him and destroying Malfoy's wand. Before Voldemort could react, Harry reached the protection of the home of Ted and Andromeda Tonks , and Voldemort was forced to retreat.
Voldemort returned to his headquarters at Malfoy Manor and, accompanied by Peter Pettigrew, accused Ollivander of deliberately misleading him and tortured him with the Cruciatus Curse. Ollivander told him truthfully that never in wandlore has he ever heard of such a thing happening between two wands. Voldemort ordered Ollivander to tell him everything he knew about the legendary wand known as the Elder Wand.
The officials and the puppet minister that Voldemort installed to run the Ministry and enforce the new regime. Shortly after this, the Ministry of Magic was compromised and fell to the power of Voldemort when Minister Rufus Scrimgeour was tortured for information and murdered, the official version being he retired. Harry Potter was declared Undesirable No. Voldemort placed a Taboo Curse on his name which enabled his Death Eaters to instantly locate anyone who spoke it out loud in the open.
He chose not to publicly declare himself Minister in order to maintain an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty. With his servants taking care of business in Britain, Voldemort travelled to Germany to seek out the acclaimed wandmaker Mykew Gregorovitch and obtain the Elder Wand. Eventually, after murdering several people who got in his way, Voldemort found him, but was informed that the wand had been stolen.
Voldemort performed Legilimency on Gregorovitch and saw the memory of a young blond boy who stole the wand. Voldemort demanded to know the identity of the thief, but when Gregorovitch didn't know it, Voldemort killed him. Harry and Hermione barely managed to escape. However, Voldemort found a picture of the aforementioned blond boy at Bagshot's home; this boy turned out to be none other than Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald , whom Dumbledore had defeated in Voldemort testing the Elder Wand's power after removing it from Dumbledore's tomb.
In March of , Voldemort travelled to Austria and broke into Nurmengard prison, where Grindelwald was being held, and demanded to know the location of the Elder Wand. Grindelwald baffled Voldemort by being completely unafraid of him and saying that he welcomed death. Voldemort then murdered him in a rage without gaining any information. At that moment, Bellatrix Lestrange summoned him by pressing the Dark Mark. Harry Potter had accidentally broken the Taboo an hour prior, and he and his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger , were captured by a group of Snatchers led by Fenrir Greyback , and were brought to Malfoy Manor.
He departed Germany to end Harry's life, but before he could arrive, they managed to escape with the assistance of house-elf Dobby. The arriving Voldemort caused physical harm for Bellatrix and the Malfoys, and forbade them to leave the manor as punishment. Shortly after this, Voldemort deduced that Dumbledore, who had defeated Grindelwald, had won the Elder Wand. Voldemort then went to Hogwarts, where he met with Snape and proceeded to break into Dumbledore's tomb and thus stole the Elder Wand. Voldemort learning that one of his Horcruxes , Hufflepuff's Cup , was stolen, killing the bearers of bad news in a fit of rage.
This caused Voldemort to panic, and when he was informed that a small golden cup had been stolen, he flew into a rage. Voldemort massacred all those who told him the news, having realised at that moment that Harry was hunting his Horcruxes. However, he could not figure out how he had discovered his secret when he never told anyone.
In truth, Dumbledore and Harry had worked out, from studying Voldemort's past, that he had created Horcruxes, and also what they were and where they were hidden. Dumbledore first theorised about the Horcruxes and then passed the knowledge onto Harry, from there Harry was able to complete the hunt. Voldemort listed all the locations of his Horcruxes in his mind, unaware that Harry was connected to his mind at the time. He unwittingly revealed that his last Horcrux was at Hogwarts, just as Harry previously suspected. This caused Harry, Ron, and Hermione to venture to Hogwarts.
Following these revelations, Voldemort went to check out the Gaunt Shack and the Cave, only to discover to his fury that the Horcruxes stored there were missing and thus likely destroyed. Voldemort then returned to Hogwarts, where the residents had already ousted the Death Eaters teaching there and had begun preparing a defence against him. Voldemort rounded up his entire army of Death Eaters, Snatchers, Werewolves, Giants, and Dementors, and commanded his army to fight the Order of the Phoenix members, professors, and students who were in the castle: the Battle of Hogwarts ensued.
Voldemort himself was not present at the opening stage of the battle, as he was staying within the Shrieking Shack , feeling there was no need for him to fight at the time. While in the shack, he investigated why the Elder Wand did not work any differently from his old wand. He came to the conclusion that it needed to accept him as a master and ordered Nagini to kill Snape. He believed this would solve the problem by transferring mastery of the wand to himself, assuming that since Snape killed Dumbledore then he was the current master of the wand.
Harry willingly letting Voldemort hit him with the Killing Curse. Voldemort then called a one-hour armistice, requesting Harry in exchange for peace and no further deaths. Unbeknownst to Voldemort, Harry carried within him the seventh Horcrux, the scar on his forehead, which was formed when Voldemort failed to kill him as an infant. When Harry met Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest, Voldemort used the Killing Curse on him almost immediately, but only destroyed the Horcrux, rendering his scar "normal.
Harry was merely knocked to the ground and feigned death. Voldemort, as a result of destroying his soul shard in Harry, was also knocked out. As Voldemort and his army marched to Hogwarts, Voldemort claimed Harry had been killed while trying to escape. Neville, instead of surrendering, charged at Voldemort.
After Neville refused to join him, Voldemort placed a Full Body-Bind Curse and the Sorting Hat on him and set the hat on fire to make an example of him, claiming that Slytherin would be the only Hogwarts House from then on. But at that moment, reinforcements for the Hogwarts defenders arrived. Neville was able to throw off the curse and pulled Gryffindor's Sword from the Hat, and used it to decapitate Nagini, destroying the last remaining Horcrux. Enraged, Voldemort attempted to kill Neville, but Harry, now beneath his Invisibility cloak , interfered and cast a Shield Charm between them.
During the second round of the Battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort tried to strike down everyone within his reach and his weakened army forced its way into the castle. In the Great Hall , his army was gradually cut down as Voldemort fought Slughorn, Shacklebolt, and Minerva McGonagall all at once and later blasted them away. At that time, Harry by cast a Shield Charm to protect her, and revealed himself to be very much alive.
Soul Reaver 2 - Wikipedia
The two wizards then faced each other in the Great Hall. Here, Harry mentioned that by willingly sacrificing himself to Voldemort, he had protected everyone he cared about in Hogwarts with the same magic his mother created when she died for him. Harry tried to explain to Voldemort that he had magic Voldemort did not have, and a weapon more powerful than his, in addition to warning Voldemort of the fate that lay in store for him if he was unwilling to feel remorse for his actions.
Goading him by using his birth name, Harry told him that Snape's loyalty was with Dumbledore all along, that Dumbledore's death was planned, and that Snape had not been the master of the Elder Wand; Draco had been. The final duel between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. Originally shocked, Voldemort remained unworried, because Harry did not have his original wand, and he told Harry he would kill him and then dispose of Draco to gain full mastery of the Elder Wand. But Harry revealed that he had already disarmed Draco , so the Elder Wand was now rightfully his.
Refusing to believe this, Voldemort fired a Killing Curse at Harry, while Harry countered with his "trademark" spell of Expelliarmus. The Elder Wand refused to kill its true master, and Voldemort's spell rebounded off Harry's, killing the Dark Lord once and for all. Voldemort's mangled soul in Limbo for eternity.
After his death, Voldemort's body was moved to a separate chamber away from the Great Hall. It is unknown what happened to it afterwards, but it can be assumed that his body was disposed of. Meanwhile his mutilated soul was trapped in Limbo for eternity, as the soul is meant to stay whole and intact. Because of the destruction done to his soul he was unable to move on or return to the land of the living as a ghost. In the end, Lord Voldemort, who was extremely afraid of death, received a fate far worse than that. More than twenty years following his death, Voldemort's daughter Delphini would attempt to rewrite the timeline in order to bring back her father.
Though she would ultimately fail, one of the attempts by Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy to change the timeline and save Cedric and prevent his death unknowingly to them orchestrated by Delphini herself , would result in a temporary timeline where Cedric never died, and where Voldemort succeeded in killing Harry at the Battle of Hogwarts. This alternate timeline where Voldemort both lived and won the Wizarding War would eventually be prevented and changed back into the original timeline through the efforts of Scorpius and the alternate timeline's versions of Snape, Hermione, and Ron.
Following the restoration of the original timeline, Delphini would attempt to go back in time to the night where Voldemort went after the Potters in Godric's Hollow, and prevent him from doing so, hoping to ensure Voldemort was never defeated. During this attempt, the group tried to catch her off guard by making Harry disguise himself as Voldemort. While he was eventually discovered, the group was nonetheless able to prevent Delphini's plan from succeeding and captured her. However, before they left back into their own time, both Harry and Delphini were forced to witness Voldemort's attack at Godric's Hollow, resulting in Harry witnessing his parents' deaths, and Delphini seeing her father's first defeat.
During his childhood and early adulthood, Tom Marvolo Riddle was tall and handsome, with pale skin, jet black hair, and dark eyes. When Harry saw him in a memory in the Pensieve , he saw that there was no trace of the Gaunt family in his face, and that he was his father in miniature: " tall for eleven years old, dark-haired and pale ".
While in Wool's Orphanage, he wore the standard grey tunic as with all the other children, and switched over to the Hogwarts uniform when he attended the school, gaining the Prefect and Head Boy badges when he attained those positions. When he worked in Borgin and Burkes, he wore a simple black suit.
However, as he became more involved in the Dark Arts, his good looks gradually left him. His features became increasingly waxy and reptilian, his skin became bone-white, and the sclera of his eyes took on a perpetually blood-shot appearance. In his final body, Voldemort was described as having pale white skin, a skeletally thin body, and dark scarlet eyes with cat-like slits for pupils.
He had a chalk -white face that resembled a skull, snake-like slits for nostrils, and large hands with unnaturally long fingers like spider's legs. It is also mentioned that Voldemort had no hair or lips. Voldemort had a high, cold voice which was sometimes described as being sibilant. The transformation into this monstrous state is believed to have been the result of creating his Horcruxes, becoming less human as he continued to divide his soul. Dumbledore also speculates that Voldemort may have gained his hideous appearance by also undergoing dangerous magical transformations.
Voldemort was considered by many to be " the most evil wizard in hundreds and hundreds of years ". His nature far exceeded that of any common evildoer and Dumbledore stated that he " went beyond normal evil " in the extent of his crimes. Hagrid claimed that while all Dark Wizards "go bad", Voldemort went "worse than worse". Indeed, Voldemort speedily developed into a power-obsessed megalomaniac of the worst kind and the worst of any known Dark Wizard, being considered by all to be far more evil than even Gellert Grindelwald. He was unable and unwilling to express remorse or empathy for the countless crimes he had committed.
This was a stark contrast to Grindelwald, who proved to display genuine remorse for his crimes and even before his fall, pity for those abused for their magic and even if only a little, care for his followers, all which Voldemort completely lacked. These anti social traits were seen in his childhood, from stealing, to disturbing incidences with other orphans. Dumbledore stated that the young Riddle had a certain disregard for rules. In adult life, he performed the darkest of magic and had no regard for human life.
He was a prolific killer, killing so many he created an army of Inferi. Voldemort also did not believe in the concept of good and evil, as he made clear to Harry in their encounter at the Mirror of Erised, and that only power and "those too weak to seek it" truly mattered. Voldemort murdering Lily Potter without remorse. He was highly intelligent, as evidenced by his top performance at Hogwarts and his tremendous magical achievements, but his interests were narrowly focused on the usefulness of people, objects, and powers to his goals.
His inability to see the larger picture and inattention to events, powers and human traits that were not immediately useful to him was a serious flaw that led to most of his setbacks and ultimately his downfall. After his first defeat, many namely Hagrid, Dumbledore, Neville's grandmother among others believed that he had yet to be truly vanquished, and would one day return on the grounds that there was not enough humanity left in him to die in the first place. At the same time, due to his excessive evil and brutality, others namely Cornelius Fudge and a good deal of the wizarding world would deny he was still alive for a sense of self-comfort, until evidence was given to their very eyes.
During his lifetime including much of his childhood, he was shown to be highly ruthless, cruel, merciless, and sadistic, showing as little mercy to his followers as he did his enemies. According to Dumbledore, he felt no desire or need for human companionship or friendship. The closest he came to caring about another living being was feeling affection for his pet snake, Nagini. Voldemort thought of everything in terms of power which he equated to domination through magical ability.
He was somewhat willfully ignorant of people or matters which he considered to have no value. He was dismissive of the unique magic of house-elves due to their social status, and thus was dealt major setbacks by house-elves on two occasions: first Kreacher, who escaped the cave with Slytherin's locket due to the sacrifice of his beloved master, Regulus Black, and Dobby , who bypassed the defences of Voldemort's headquarters because Voldemort had neglected to render it inaccessible to house elves as he had to wizards and helped Harry escape right before Voldemort could arrive to kill him.
Voldemort had a need for independence that bordered on pathological, and he preferred to operate in secrecy and solitude whenever possible. Dumbledore claimed that even if he had managed to obtain the Elixir of Life, he would have eventually found his dependency on it intolerable because it would have robbed him of his sense of self-reliance. Instead, he preferred to make Horcruxes, which were magical extensions of himself. Voldemort was a sociopathic narcissist, to the point that he frequently referred to himself in the third person as "Lord Voldemort.
Despite his independent streak, it is not to say Voldemort would completely reject all assistance, if only he was forced into a desperate measure. When he lost his physical form at the Potters' cottage, he placed his hopes for his faithful Death Eaters to find him and help restore his body, to the point that he even feared that they all abandoned him, and when Peter Pettigrew finally came back to him, he relied on his cowardly servant to brew the potion to maintain the rudimentary body as well as carry that body around for transport. In between the time of his first defeat and rebirth, Voldemort came to rely on Quirinus Quirrell to seize the Philosopher's Stone for him, while using the young wizard's body as a temporary way to regain a grip on the physical world.
Although Voldemort rejected the use of the Elixir of Life for immortality, he would be prepared to drink it to create a new body for himself, but nothing more. Aside from his desperate times, Voldemort would also rely on his Death Eaters and army of versatile beings to do his bidding, knowing that he could not overtake the Ministry all by himself or with only a small handful of Death Eaters , or depend on them to handle the more trivial matters that he did not think was worth his effort. He even trusted the conquered Ministry of Magic to his army while he would focus on other matters personally.
He entrusted two of his precious Horcruxes to his lieutenant Death Eaters, Bellatrix Lestrange and Lucius Malfoy, knowing they have the resources and skills to provide satisfactory security, but did not tell them the truth of these unholy artefacts, furthering his reliance on their skills over any genuine trust. Overall, Voldemort's need for solitude and independence is not so much as doing absolutely everything himself, but to make use of everyone around him to the fullest without ever gaining any sentimental attachment to them, as he was easily prepared to discard anyone or anything once they fulfilled their purpose.
Voldemort had very little attachment to anything that did not amplify his fame or existence, He viewed his followers as nothing more than disposable pawns to carry out his tasks, only valuing their usefulness and physical abilities. Despite doting on pure-bloods, he was willing to execute any of them or anyone else if it suited him, even if they were completely loyal to him. Even his wand , which served him powerfully and faithfully for nearly six decades, was disposable when he discovered the even more powerful Elder Wand.
The reason he valued his Horcruxes was because they were an extension of himself, giving him independence. Voldemort did not believe in anyone but himself, nor did he value his fellow human beings except to the extent that they were useful to him. He often described his followers as 'friends' and his Death Eaters even as 'family', but in no way treated them like an ordinary person does their friends or family. He demanded his followers' unswerving loyalty and obedience, spitefully took revenge for their mistakes or even bad luck by torture or going after family members and mistreated or even killed them at the slightest provocation.
His cold-blooded murder of the man he believed to be one of his most powerful and useful followers, Severus Snape, just to be sure he was the true master of the Elder Wand and his callous attempt to sacrifice Draco Malfoy by ordering him to assassinate Dumbledore as punishment for Lucius Malfoy's blunders, are evidence of this. The enchantment under which Tom Riddle fathered Voldemort is important because it shows coercion, and there can't be many more prejudicial ways to enter the world than as the result of such a union. As a child at Hogwarts, and in the early years of his adult life, Riddle was considered an intelligent, polite young man who showed an enthusiasm to learn and was able to use his superficial charm to make many do his bidding, showing his skill at being an exceptional master manipulator.
He described himself being viewed by others as poor, but brilliant, parent-less, but so brave, a school prefect, a model student. However, this was all a ruse, as he was very manipulative, with Dumbledore claiming that there were a number of "nasty incidents" that happened throughout his time at Hogwarts that the authorities were never completely able to link to him.
In his youth, Voldemort was capable of charming everyone at Hogwarts except Albus Dumbledore and surround himself with a group of "friends" which would eventually become his Death Eaters. This was in direct contrast of his behaviour in the orphanage, where he terrorised his fellow residents, open enough to leave a negative reputation among the children and staff, but discreet enough to avoid persecution.
Voldemort interrogating Gregorovitch before murdering him. Voldemort's arrogance inevitably led to his major downfall. He suffered from thanatophobia, a pathological fear of death, which he regarded as a shameful and ignominious human weakness. He equated death with being defeated or loss of domination, the ultimate humiliation. His Boggart would be his own corpse, which shows his extreme fear of death. Voldemort had an extremely obsessive nature.
When Harry glimpsed into his mind, he often saw repetitive imagery, symptomatic of Voldemort's inability to let go of thoughts or diversify his interests. In his fifth year, he travelled with Voldemort down the locked corridor in the Department of Mysteries for many nights. During the second war, he followed Voldemort's unfolding obsession with the "merry-faced thief", Grindelwald, and the Elder Wand. He was able to use Voldemort's compulsive mental check of his Horcruxes to uncover the location of the one he had not yet found: Ravenclaw's Diadem , hidden at Hogwarts.
Voldemort's main obsessions were; immortality, pure-blood supremacy, the attempts on Harry Potter's life, and the search for the Elder Wand. This was reflected in his daily habits as well: he had a magpie-like tendency to collect lots of small objects and hold onto them. As a child, he is shown hoarding things that he stole from the other orphans, which eventually blossomed into his conception of the Horcruxes. This could also have been seen as trophy taking, a trait seen in serial killers.
This was especially seen after a particularly cruel act, such as the incident at the Cave, and creating Horcruxes after killing. Dumbledore said to Harry in the Limbo King's Cross that his obsession with the Elder Wand was to rival his obsession with Harry himself. The Dark Lord stopped at nothing in his many attempts to kill Harry Potter.
The search for the Elder Wand was an extension of his obsession with murdering Harry, which, in turn, was an extension of his preoccupation with immortality which he felt that Harry's very existence threatened. Ironically, his obsession of eliminating Harry in person, an obsession seemingly multiplied by every single failed attempt, is what led to his own death. Dumbledore noted that Voldemort was no different from any other tyrant in paranoid fear of an individual rising against him because of his own obsessive actions.
This trait could be traced back to his childhood when he was convinced at first that Dumbledore had come to take him to an asylum. In another ironic twist, this indicates that Voldemort failed to make himself unique as he had the flaw of any evil tyrant. Few ever saw anything troubling about the young Tom Riddle, but Albus Dumbledore observed psychological issues and their potential dark implications from their very first meeting.
Dumbledore described a "magpie-like tendency" to collect trophies, to obsess over his collection, that led him to make a correct guess at what was behind the secret of his immortality: multiple Horcruxes. Dumbledore noted a similarity between Voldemort and other famous tyrants, in that obsessive actions driven by paranoia can bring about the thing most feared.
Tom Riddle remained charming and well-liked as a young adult, and at first seemed to be aiming lower on the scale of ambition than his talents would have supported. He used his stint at Borgin and Burke's to develop his knowledge of the Dark Arts, and to track and collect powerful magical objects. Only a few people ever had an ominous feeling about his imminent rise as a powerful dark wizard: Hepzibah Smith , who saw his eyes flash red with avarice when he saw her treasured artefacts, and, again, Albus Dumbledore, who refused to give him a job teaching at Hogwarts.
Gradually taking more and more power, eliminating rivals and those who stood up to him, and transforming his appearance and his social image into a serpentine persona that inspired a level of fear so profound that wizards avoided mentioning his name even after they thought him dead, Voldemort reached the peak of his powers in Despite his narcissistic nature, Voldemort could acknowledge his mistakes, as shown when he accepted the fact that the destruction of his body was more his fault then Harry's, even going so far to openly admit this to his Death Eaters.
However, though Voldemort was capable of admitting his mistakes, Harry asserted that he didn't learn from them, especially relating to matters he did not value such as love. When he was angry, Voldemort was unpredictable: he was capable of being cold and calm, but could also explode with rage and when he lost his temper he never hesitated to slay even his own loyal followers. He expected complete respect from his Death Eaters but did not truly care for any of them in return.
He did rescue Bellatrix Lestrange after his duel with Albus Dumbledore, and also screamed and attempted to avenge her after she was killed by Molly Weasley. It is likely, though, that he was furious about the loss of a very powerful and talented servant as well as the mother of his daughter Delphini , rather than truly missing Bellatrix as a person. Bellatrix herself was obsessively in love with him incidentally, this somewhat mirrored the fascination that Voldemort's mother had with his father , but he never returned the romantic feelings due to his lack of understanding and desire for love, despite having engaged in a purely physical relationship with Bellatrix, that resulted in the birth of their daughter.
One flaw that Voldemort did not possess, despite his egomania, was thinking himself infallible. He acknowledged his mistakes on several occasions, and with the candour and charm that had won him followers in the first place, he sought to make hay of his missteps, openly revealing such unflattering information to his followers and using it to illustrate how he could use his wits to further enhance his powers. Upon his return, Voldemort showed a degree of calculated humility. He did not announce his rebirth to anyone besides supporters, realising he was not yet strong enough to take on the Ministry.
He also showed his followers leniency, even though they had not sought to help him after his downfall, realising he could not afford to mistreat them until returning to full strength. His first downfall was brought about by his greatest flaw: disregarding that which he could not understand. He did not realise that trying to cast a Killing Curse on a victim after killing a protector who had voluntarily sacrificed themselves would result in the curse rebounding off due to the magic of love.
Voldemort's talents for sowing discord and mistrust showed during the Second War, as did his violent temper. As he neared the last days of his life, he made error after error, alienating his followers with a grisly display of mass murder in the aftermath of the Gringotts robbery, tipping Harry off to the location of the last unknown Horcrux due to a compulsive mental check of their location accompanied by fear, which he should have known would make the thoughts readable on his and Harry's soul fragment connection, and neglecting to notice the signs of Harry's closeness to defeating him, Snape's duplicity and Dumbledore's last plan.
Deep under his terrifying demeanour, Voldemort was capable of fear whenever he didn't feel that things were completely in his control. On some occasions, such as when he tried to murder Harry while he was a defenceless baby, Voldemort displayed cowardice. He was also furious, yet terrified, when he found out that Helga Hufflepuff's Cup was stolen. Voldemort was also more afraid than Harry was when their wands underwent Priori Incantatem , although he refused assistance from his followers due to his desire to kill Harry unaided.
Nevertheless, Voldemort was capable of suppressing and concealing his fears, and confronting the things that threatened him. When he entered Morfin Gaunt's home as a teenager and confronted his deranged uncle, even Harry could not help but admire Riddle's complete lack of fear when witnessing the event in Dumbledore's Pensieve.
Gaunt was drunk, unstable and showed murderous inhumanity whilst wielding a knife in teenage Riddle's face, all of which nonplussed him. Voldemort was even bold enough to engage Albus Dumbledore in a duel, despite Dumbledore being the only wizard Voldemort was ever said to have feared. Voldemort was also a liar and a hypocrite, even when he was a child.
He was sadistic to other children in the orphanage where he grew up and opened the Chamber of Secrets while at Hogwarts, resulting in the death of a fellow student. When confronted by Dumbledore on both occasions he denied any involvement. He also lied to Slughorn about his reasons for wanting to gain knowledge on Horcruxes. A further example of this is how Voldemort deemed himself a "Merciful Lord" with respect for his enemies, when in fact he considered everyone he had killed to be "worthless as he held no regard for them and nameless" he had killed so many that they became vague figures and not people with names to him and used the words "The more the better" regarding how many people died fighting his army.
Voldemort also announced to Hogwarts after Harry's supposed demise that he had died whilst trying to run away for fear of his own life, despite knowing full well that Harry had willingly walked to what he believed was his death in the hopes of saving his friends. He also denied his blood purity having been a half-blood himself. Despite the fact that he usually maintained a calm, reserved and sophisticated persona, Lord Voldemort was capable of phenomenally explosive and violent fits of rage. His rage would often get the better of him, as shown when he duelled Harry Potter in Little Hangleton, casting curses violently and screaming with fury whilst attacking Harry.
He also roared with anger whilst duelling Dumbledore. When he experiences these mood swings, he would instinctively cast Killing Curses at whomever he saw first. The most famous display of fury was when he discovered that Gringotts Bank had been infiltrated, specifically his vault, and he murdered every survivor of the incident out of wrath, further supporting his fear of dying. Voldemort was shown to be highly intelligent and charismatic, able to inspire many powerful and influential wizards to follow him as his loyal Death Eaters.
He could not care less what happened to anyone else, as long as he got what he wanted or avoided discovery for his crimes, shown as how he framed Hagrid, his uncle Morfin, and the House Elf Hokey for murders he had committed himself. He was never concerned with the consequences of his actions, only if they either benefited him or got him into trouble with the law. A prime example of how selfish Voldemort was, is how he killed Severus Snape , arguably the man who had as far as he knew served him more faithfully and helpfully than anyone, simply to unlock the full power of the Elder Wand.
However, despite Voldemort's general malicious ways he had proven that he was capable of acknowledging the desires of others, but only if those desires did not interfere with his ambitions and were presented by someone whom he deemed a worthy servant. The only time this was ever really seen was when he agreed to Severus Snape's plea for Lily Evans' life. Although he did not agree to spare Lily unconditionally, he said he would offer her the chance to live if she did not attempt to stop him from murdering her son.
Uncharacteristically, Voldemort followed through on his promise to Snape and gave Lily several chances to step aside. Doing this was what caused Lily's death to be a willing sacrifice which is what protected Harry from Voldemort in the first place. One odd incident in Voldemort's life, discovered by Harry through an inadvertent mind-reading, occurred on the night he murdered Lily and James.
As he walked down a Godric's Hollow lane on his way to their house, on his way to kill the infant Harry Potter, in a most unusual act of mercy, he decided to spare the life of a Muggle child who had complimented the impressiveness of his "Hallowe'en costume", not realising that Voldemort was not in costume, but a black-robed wizard with a pale, snakelike face. Killing him was an act Voldemort had deemed "unnecessary".
Voldemort's reasoning for this was not made clear, though it can be surmised that Voldemort had chosen not to use magic until he had arrived at the Potter's house in case his presence was detected by any spies. Another possibility is that Voldemort simply thought the child was not worth his time or effort. He also seemed to have respected, and sometimes even admired, bravery and skill, even when displayed by some of his enemies.
After his return in , he remarked to Harry that Harry's father had died "straight-backed and proud". Previously, at the end of Harry's first year at Hogwarts , he had referred to the Potters as "brave" and said that James Potter I "put up a courageous fight". During the Battle of Hogwarts , he appreciated Neville Longbottom 's "spirit and bravery" and wanted him to become a Death Eater, though this was also partially due to Neville being a pureblood. Although not caring for his Death Eaters, he did appreciate loyalty.
Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Review of book 3. I loved Levy, she reminded me of Kate Daniels and I couldn't wait to read more. My somewhat low rating is not for the characters but for the writing and maybe one character, Connor. The premise of this series is that there was a group of magic users that were considered the gods in the magical community. These people decided that only them should be the one performing magic so they fo Review of book 3. These people decided that only them should be the one performing magic so they found a way to kill off the weaker supes.
Their plan was eventually figured out after they killed thousands of people so the rest of the magical community banded up together and killed them off. Obviously they couldn't kill every single one of them, Levy is one of offspring of those that escaped. A brotherhood who's main mission is to kill the remaining legacies find Levy and she has to alter his memory to escape death. Then she is embroiled in some plot after plot and that's what the series is all about.
The first book I liked, great introductions, I liked the secondary characters. I didn't find it repetitive, I didn't find Conner as aggravating as I did in book 4, so there's that. The subsequent books become annoying as heck. Conner obviously was a psycho. Levy told him time and time again that she didn't want anything to do with him but he refused to listen because apparently she's the one for him and to his thinking he just has to wear her down. There are people like this, truly, those that can't take a message but this went on through four books.
It was annoying because sometimes I felt the conversations were repeated verbatim. That takes me to this series repetitiveness, I understand that they will be some kind of recap as a new book starts but it was just too much, the same story was carried on through four books. I didn't even notice it until book 4, so kudos to the author for making it subtle, I guess.
I liked Garrett but I didn't understand why she had to act coy every time he was around. She still was averting her eyes in book 4 when they had already had sex in book 2. I couldn't understand that. I had hoped we would have to face different villains like the KD series but that did not happen,we had Psychotic Conner all through. I thought at the end of book three he would be gone but nope, he rears his ugly head again. I did not like that. I did enjoy the series all in all and I will be looking forward to reading more from this author. Jul 13, Victoria Aston rated it really liked it.

I liked the twists and turns once did get into and introduction to new characters coming into it the series. Look forwards to see what these new characters hold for the future and how they will impact and play apart in Levy life and journey be it good or bad. Loved Savanna and a shock that she carries out! Hope this hasn't really effected her like she acts. If ur into ur supernatural world's, romance squeezed in there and fighting ect.. Jul 05, Stacey mann rated it it was amazing. What an amazing end to an amazing series.
Book 4 Rogue magic is everything you would want in a final book. It moves the story alone lovely while tying all the loose end up. Savannah was also amazing in this book, she really come into her own, I really just love her more and more. To top all this off there was What an amazing end to an amazing series. Moments as well, I would really recommend to anyone.

I really wanted to like this book but i just didn't feel any excitement for it and finished only because I'd come this far in the series. First i think the storyline w Connor just felt strained. It just read as a villain that when he came on the scene you think to yourself Why are you still here?
Another thing that I didn't get was Levy's relationship w Gar Not so legendary I don't know if maybe its the timing btwn when the last book came out to this one but i was really disappointed. Another thing that I didn't get was Levy's relationship w Garrett. Nothing was really mentioned abt why they liked each other. You didn't feel any pull.
Most of their conversations was Levy saying how hot Garrett thought he was and Garrett agreeing and joking ard abt how confident he was in his looks. Same could be said w the relationship w Lucas and Savannah. She loves the fang, Levy is a suck block what are we 5? I get that he is Master vampire but his attitude and tone towards Levy kind of The best part of the book was the ending and the new character introduced earlier on that they deal with.
That was great to read abt and i wish they delved into the place and why that character was there. What is Dorian to Her? Why is she so childlike? So many questions but i guess we'll see where that leads. Another reviewer mentioned that Ms Hunter is a repeater and that strikes again here. From how many times we hear why she prefers to go by Olivia, to being told abt supernatural beings great hearing and ability to tell lies, to why Hanah had to die, and how much more powerful Connor was.
I really wanted to like and looked forward to this book but it was a big disappointment. I can't say I would recommend this and not sure I want to read more. View 2 comments. Nov 28, Marviette rated it it was ok. So glad that this is over I tired of all the kidnapping by Connor and arrests by Gareth and his crew. It was annoying--same old same. I like the idea of her working with Gareth. Those might be interesting reads. Jan 28, LexiLikesLiterature rated it it was ok. This fourth installment of The Legacy series finds Levy caught between helping her best friend, Savannah, and helping the public fight a virus sent out by Connor.
Yes, you read that right. Connor is back Prepare yourself for the many eye rolls and sighs of annoyment that are to come. A villian that is to be used in more than one installment must be powerful, cunning, intriguing, and scary as hell. Unfortunately, Connor only has power and I put an asterisk next to that one because he This fourth installment of The Legacy series finds Levy caught between helping her best friend, Savannah, and helping the public fight a virus sent out by Connor. Unfortunately, Connor only has power and I put an asterisk next to that one because he has been beaten down in 3 books already.
As he doesn't even possess the other characteristics listed, he does not fit the bill for a Super Villian. His presence felt so overdone. Every time he came into a scene I was annoyed. And he pulls the same tricks he has done since book one. He is actually a terribly written bad guy.
I surely hope this is his last book because I can't take anymore of his insignificance. Then there is our lead heroin, Levy, herself. The author tries to force her into being this low key ,flannel wearing, comic book reading good ol' girl. Yet, it just doesnt fit. Levy constantly makes references to batman, the Marvel universe, and graphic novels in general. But it comes across so fake. Like a person trying to pretend they are into those things. Believe me, I see it a lot. Now that comics are cool, many try to pretend they are fans. That is how Levy comes across to me and I'm not even taking into account her childish banter and inability to take stuff seriously.
The love lives of Levy, Savannah, and Blue are just uninspired. There was no build up to make it stick. No intense draw and no emotional pull. On a side note, Lucas is the worst Master Vampire I have ever read about in a novel. He has no sensuality, no sexuality, no powerful presence, and
