What do we know about the villain of the Potter series?

Lord Voldemort is so ominous that even his name is not uttered in Hogwarts. Instead, he is referred to as ‘You-Know Who’, or ‘He Who Must Not Be Named’. Voldemort is the archenemy of Harry Potter.

According to a prophecy, Harry Potter has ‘the power to vanquish the Dark Lord.’ Voldemort attempts to murder Harry, but kills his parents, Lily and James Potter instead.

Voldemort is the last descendant of the wizard Salazar Slytherin, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is obsessed with the purity of blood and he aims to get rid of the Muggles-people of non-magical origin like Hermione Granger. He is the leader of the Death Eaters, a group of evil wizards and witches dedicated to ridding the Wizarding World of Muggles and establishing Voldemort as its supreme ruler. Rowling describes Voldemort as ‘the evilest wizard for hundreds and hundreds of years’.
