Who are the Death Eaters?

Formed in the years following the fall of the dark wizard Grindelwald, the Death Eaters are a group of wizards and witches who are followers of Lord Voldemort. They are convinced, like their master, of the superiority of so-called “pureblood” individuals over Muggle-born wizards and witches (born of parents without magic power like Hermione Granger), and aim to establish, through the through the Ministry of Magic, a new order based on fear and terror. 

The Death Eaters recognize and communicate with each other thanks to the Dark mark, in the shape of a skull with a snake coming out of its mouth, which they all wear on their left forearm. It is a distinctive sign created by Voldemort in order to be able to summon his followers instantly, or to allow them to call him.

A Death Eater’s classic outfit includes a black hooded robe and mask.

We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.
