but the world is full of zanies and fools who don’t believe in sensible rules, and won’t believe what sensible people say. and because these daft and dewey-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes, impossible things are happening everyday
Narcissa Malfoy is the only known member of Voldemort’s inner circle not to have taken the Dark Mark. First and foremost a mother, she was ruthless in doing whatever it took to keep her family together; maintaining her status while her husband was imprisoned in Azkaban and later becoming only the third person known to have deceived The Dark Lord. Narcissa was calm where her sister was crazed, restrained where her husband was reckless and self-assured where her son aimed to prove himself. Narcissa knew what mattered most and was a key factor in Harry Potter’s survival and Voldemort’s demise.
