Early Life (1950-1969)Edit
Bellatrix Black was born on January 26, 1950 in Great Britain. Bellatrix was born into a pure-blood heritage. She's the eldest daughter of Felix Black and Cruella Black. Bellatrix is the oldest of her twin sister, Edie Puckett-Black and Nymphadore Crowe-Black. The Black's family was very cruel. During Bellatrix's childhood, her father had tortured a muggle family, he was sent to Azkaban and later died there in 1960. In 1961 when Bellatrix was at aged eleven, she attended WizTech School of Witches and Wizards along with her twin, Edie. Bellatrix and Edie was both sorted into Snakers. Bellatrix didn't stay long to graduate from WizTech, she dropped out at the aged seventeen, she soon meets Rodolphus Mafoy and later they fell in love and got married in 1969.
When Dark Voldemort first rose to power, Bellatrix and Rodolphus joined the Deather Eaters. Voldemort gave Bellatrix additional training in the Dark Arts. He was her true love, the one to whom she spoke in a romantic manner and showed concern for. However, he never returned her feelings as he was incapable of understanding love and disliked the idea of being emotionally attached to anyone.
First Wizarding WarEdit
When the First Wizarding War had first broke out, Bellatrix and her husband Rodolphus both fought for Dark Voldemort's Deather Eaters, and remained loyal to Voldemort throughout the wizarding war and even after he was defeated by Harry Lockhart.
After the Dark Lord's fall on October 31, 1981, Bellatrix, Rodolphus and a group of Voldemort's followers kidnapped two Order of the Phoenix members, Hank and Barb Wendel, the new parents of Neville Wendel. Bellatrix and her partners used the Crucio Curse and the Killing Curse to torture and kill Hank and Barb. After the couples were murdered, Bellatrix and her partners were captured by the wizard police and they were sent to the Council of Ministry Court and sentenced to life imprisonment and death row in Azkaban.
Between the war (1981-1995)Edit
Imprisonment in AzkabanEdit
- "Go ahead throw us in the dungeon but the Dark lord will be coming for us, we are loyal to him. He will reward us beyond any of his other supporters! We alone were faithful! We alone tried to find him! And when he find us, he will set us free!!!"
- —Bellatrix at the Council of Ministry Court during her trial.
After the fall of the Dark Lord, Bellatrix stood trial for her crimes. Unlike many other Deather Eaters, she did not lie about her loyalty — she proudly claimed that she was loyal to Voldemort and that she would wait for his return. Indeed, Bellatrix was so proud of her loyalty to Voldemort that, during her trial before the Council of Ministry Court, she was said to have sat upon the chair she was chained to as if it were a throne.
She would later describe herself as the Dark Lord's most loyal follower and even Dark Voldemort, whom Bellatrix admired the most, gained a considerable amount of respect for her. Bellatrix was sentenced to life and death in Azkaban with no chance of release. She would spent the next sixteen years in a maximum security cell until her death. Her time in Azkaban takes a toll on her already unstable mentality. In 1993, she attempts a mass breakout however she was kept with punishment chains to make sure she don't ever escape.
Harry Potter later witnessed Bellatrix's trial in 1995 in a memory of Professor Crumbs.
Second Wizarding WarEdit
Escape from AzkabanEdit
When Dark Voldemort returned to power in June 1995 he said that Bellatrix and Rodolphus Mafoy were faithful members of his inner circle and should be rewarded, as they did not denounce him after they were captured and tried.
On January 9, 1996, the seven members of the Deather Eaters had came to freed Bellatrix and her husband. The Deather Eaters had destroyed the Azkaban and Bellatrix was one of the ten high-security Deather Eaters who had escaped and rejoined Dark Voldemort also the Dementors joined the Dark Lord as well. As a result, Bellatrix and her allies became wanted witches and wizards. They lived in hiding to avoid being captured by the Ministry.
The Lost ProphecyEdit
Battle of the Department of MysteriesEdit
Main Article: Battle of the Department of Mysteries Edit
Later that very same year in 1996, Bellatrix and her brother-in-law, Lucius Crowe participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in a plot to steal a prophecy regarding Harry Lockhart and the Dark Lord. She was enraged when Harry spoke Dark Voldemort's given name and mentioned his true status as a half-blood. She also recognized Neville Wendell and later tortured him just like she tortured his parents. She was very condescending when dealing with the six C.A. members. Bellatrix tried unsuccessfully to retrieve the prophecy from Harry Lockhart via a Summoning Charm, but her efforts were stopped by Harry's quick use of a Shield Charm. She was also willing to do whatever it took to get the prophecy from Harry, including gleefully and sadistically threatening to torture 14 year old Ginerva Easley with the Crucio Curse while he watched.
When the Order of the Phoenix members arrived, Lucius begins to duelled Harry and Cirius. When Lucius lost control of his powers, he begins to be defeated by Cirius. Bellatrix then struck the killing spell towards Cirius, killing him that sent him through the veil guarding the Death Chamber. Harry then chased her in revenge for murdering Cirius. He attempted the Crucio Curse but only knocked her over and caused her a few seconds of pain. She taunted and teasingly him — yet correctly — taught him to how to do it properly.
Dark Voldemort arrived at the Department shortly after Harry attempted to torture Bellatrix into insanity. Bellatrix pleaded to Voldemort not to be punished and tried to warn him that Alberforth Crumbs was nearby, but he ignored her and concentrated on attempting to kill Harry. As he was about to cast the killing curse on Harry, Professor Crumbs arrived to battle Voldemort and Bellatrix escapes while using the Flee Network.
Snape The Half-Blood Prince Edit
The plot against Albus CrumbsEdit
In late July of 1996, Bellatrix reluctantly accompanied her sister, Nymphadore Crowe, to the house of Snape Pines at Liner's End. Once there, Bellatrix interrogated Snape and voiced her distrust of him. Snape's calm, reasonable, and logical answers to her aggressive questioning rendered her dissatisfied, but temporarily without retort. Nymphadore, however, proceeded to beg Snape to look after her son Draco's welfare while he attended WizTech and tried to fulfil Voldemort's orders to kill Albus Crumbs. Snape shocked Bellatrix by asking her to bind him and Nymphadore with an Unbreakable Vow to assist Draco.
Bellatrix also assisted her nephew in his task by teaching him Occlumency, a tool he used against Snape in order to conceal the details of his mission. Bellatrix showed her obsessive loyalty to her master's cause in telling her sister that she should be proud, instead of worried, that her son was not "shrinking away from his duty."
The Seven HarrysEdit
A year later after Albus Crumbs was killed, Bellatrix went living with her sister at the Crowe Manor. Dark Voldemort and his crew had gathered a secret meeting at the Crowe Manor in order to keep Harry alive and let Voldemort the only person to kill him, Bellatrix had asked Voldemort that she want to kill Harry but Voldemort had hamiliated her and the Mafoys by mentioning Bellatrix's twin sister marrying a half-blood wizard Peter Puckett. Bellatrix then tells the dark lord that Edie is no sister of hers and Nymphadore's. Bellatrix then mentioned that she killed Edie, her husband and their son Charlie Puckett a year ago before Snape killed Alberforth Crumbs.
When the Deather Eaters subsequently attacked the Order of the Phoenix while they were moving Harry Lockhart from 4 Grudge Drive, Bellatrix and her husband targeted Dartha, the sister of Cirius and the second cousin of Bellatrix in particular. Dartha was almost killed by Rodolphus, but Rodolphus was later injured when his own spell backfires and it accidently hits him..
Skirmish at Crowe ManorEdit
On March 19, 1998 a group of Catchers had later kidnapped Harry Lockhart, Ronald Easley and Hermione Krueger and they had taken them to the Crowe Manor with Godric Graffyndor's sword. This led to Bellatrix coming out of her panicked state and attacked all the Catchers present. She intended to kill them at a later date, as Draco was unwilling to himself. She also had Draco try and identify Harry, as his face was unrecognizable due to a well placed Stinging Flex from Hermione, in an effort to disguise his and by extension her and Ronald's identities. Harry and Ronald were then separated from Hermione.
Bellatrix interrogates Hermione and tortures her using the Crucio Curse, Bellatrix then used her knife to carve "Mudblood" on Hermione's arm, but Hermione managed to lie under unbearable pain claiming the real sword was only a copy.
But Bellatrix thought that maybe Harry and his friends got the sword from her vault, so she told Pete Durshlit to get Grimgott from the cellar to tell her if the sword was fake or not. Grimgott managed to tell a lie, obeying Harry's request and keeping their secret safe. After Pete was strangled to death with his own silver hand after showing mercy and loosening the grip he had on Harry's throat, Harry and Ronald escaped the cellar and proceeded up the stairs to aid Hermione.
Bellatrix threatened Hermione with her knife, after Harry stunned a werewolf and Lucius and Ronald disarmed her. While holding the knife to an unconscious Hermione's throat, Bellatrix demanded that the prisoners drop their wands, and then pressed her Dark Mark, calling Voldemort. However, the house-elf apparated and created a diversion and caused the chandelier to fall from above Bellatrix's head, making her release Hermione and jump out of the way. She lashed out at the house-elf in complete disbelief of his rebellious action to his "former masters".
WizTech Battle (Part 1)Edit
WizTech Battle (Part 2) Edit
Main Article: The Duel Between Maybelle Easley and Bellatrix Mafoy Edit
During the middle of the battle at WizTech Great Hall, Bellatrix was duelling Ginera, Hermione and ????. When Bellatrix strike the killing curse at Ginerva, the curse had missed her and Ginerva's mother, Maybelle steps in to defeat Bellatrix herself. Maybelle strike first which Bellatrix blocked. Bellatrix then strikes Maybelle three to four times and laugh at her, thinking Maybelle is soft and weaken by her powers. However, Maybelle soon strikes all spells to Bellatrix, knocking and tumbling her. Maybelle set the freeze spell on Bellatrix, turning her into cold stone. Maybelle finally strikes Bellatrix straight to the chest and Bellatrix ends up exploded to death, killing her.
Bellatrix often gave the impression of being an utter psychopath, completely and utterly lacking in anything regarding a conscience. Being diagnois with a sadist mental illness, she was an intensely sadistic witch who at certain points seemed mentally unbalanced; for instance, she once killed a dog because she was paranoid it might be an Auror in disguise. Bellatrix was intelligent but could be easily distracted and had a fierce and dangerous temper, a trait that she shared with her cousin Cirius and her great-great-grandmother Eladora.
Bellatrix was described as a tall woman with long, thick shiny dark hair, pale skinned, thin lips, heavily-lidded eyes with long eyelashes, and a strong jaw. She had the classic 'great good looks' and arrogant bearing common for members of the House of Black, but like her cousin Cirius, time in Azkaban took a toll on her appearance. After her lengthy imprisonment, she was described as having a gaunt and skull-like face, but managed to retain some vestige of her great beauty. Bellatrix was noted to resembles alike her twin sister Edie, as Harry mistook Edie for Bellatrix on one occasion. Also, Harry noted that as much as Nymphadore is fair as Bellatrix is dark, the two sisters still resemble each other.
Magical Abilities and skillsEdit
Edie is the younger twin sister of Bellatrix. Both the twins was shown different. Edie who's good and loyal while Bellatrix evil and psychotic. When Edie married a Muggle named Frank Puckett, Bellatrix and their younger sister, Nymphadore had removed Edie from the Black's family tree and called her a "blood traitor". Bellatrix and other Deather Eaters later killed Edie and her entire family months after the death of Albus Crumbs.
Nymphadore Crowe Bellatrix got very closed to her younger sister, Nymphadore.
