Should never crave the rose. -Anne Brontë
The Black sisters > Bellatrix Black
Bellatrix Lestrange (née Black) (1951—2 May, 1998) was a pure-blood witch, the daughter of Cygnus and Druella Black and elder sister of Andromeda Tonks and Narcissa Malfoy. She started her education at Hogwarts in 1962 and was Sorted into Slytherin house. After graduating from Hogwarts, she became a Death Eater, fanatically loyal to Lord Voldemort. She was one of the few known females in the group, as well as among the most dangerous and sadistic of Voldemort’s followers.
”She was a witch, as Harry knew, with prodigious skill and no conscience.”

How many will be brave enough to return when they feel [the Dark Mark on their arms turn black]? And how many will be foolish enough to stay away?

They had fought, and she was still bearing the signs of his hands on her shoulders. He slumped against the wall, sliding down ever so slowly and hiding his face behind his crossed arms.
“How do you stand it?” she asked, her voice barely above a whisper.
He looked up, the moonlight casting shadows over his features. “I don’t know.”
“They were a motley collection; a mixture of the weak seeking protection, the ambitious seeking some shared glory, and the thuggish gravitating toward a leader who could show them more refined forms of cruelty.”
The Dark Lord lies alone and friendless, abandoned by his followers. His servant has been chained these twelve years. Tonight, before midnight the Servant will break free and set out to rejoin his Master. The Dark Lord will rise again with his servant’s aid, greater and more terrible that ever he was. Tonight before midnight, the servant will set out to rejoin his Mater.
