For use on questions specifically about Voldemort, the main antagonist of the Harry Potter series. Always use in conjunction with the [harry-potter] tag and any relevant tags. Only use the tag when specifically asking questions about the character.

Voldemort is the main antagonist in the Harry Potter series of books by JK Rowling, later adapted to film. A greatly feared dark wizard, he seeks to dominate both the magical and non-magical societies in Britain and maybe further. He is completely amoral and unable to understand loyalty (vs intimidation), friendship, or (most importantly) love.

Voldemort, born Tom Marvolo Riddle, was the orphan son of Tom Riddle Sr. and Merope Gaunt and was the last air of Salazar Slytherin.
