"Welcome, Death Eaters! Thirteen years it's been, and yet, here you stand as if it were only yesterday. We are still united under the Dark Mark then! Or are we?"
—Voldemort greeting his Death Eaters in the Little Hangleton graveyard[src]

Mr Crabbe was a Dark wizard, a Death Eater, and the father of Vincent Crabbe.

Biography

Early life

Mr Crabbe was born into the Crabbe family, possibly as a relative of Irma Crabbe, member of the House of Black.

First Wizarding War

Crabbe was a Death Eater during the First Wizarding War and was loyal to his master up until his downfall. In the aftermath, Crabbe was acquitted of being a Death Eater by the Ministry of Magic.[4] Around the downfall of Voldemort, Crabbe and his wife had a baby boy, Vincent Crabbe, who would be educated at Hogwarts from 1991-1998, and he became friends with Gregory Goyle and Draco Malfoy.

Second Wizarding War

"We'll split into pairs and search, and don't forget, be gentle with Potter until we've got the prophecy, you can kill the others if necessary..."
Lucius Malfoy gives orders to the group of Death Eaters[src]

Crabbe was one of the few Death Eaters who returned to Lord Voldemort when he rose to power again in 1995. Voldemort was displeased when he learned that Crabbe didn't attempt to find him, but he forgave him.[5]

During the Second Wizarding War, Crabbe participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996, and was paired with Rabastan Lestrange during the pursuit of the six D.A. members. He went with Rabastan to try and capture Harry, Hermione, and Neville, who were hiding in the Time Chamber. He was likely imprisoned in Azkaban, but re-escaped in 1997.

During the Battle of Hogwarts the following year, Crabbe's son Vincent (who had also become a Dark Wizard) died by the effects of his own Fiendfyre curse. Crabbe's reaction over his son's death is unknown if he was even aware of it at all. Crabbe possibly fought at the Battle of Hogwarts as well.

Post-war

Crabbe was presumably killed or imprisoned in Azkaban after Voldemort's final defeat.

Personality and traits

Much like his son, Crabbe is a large muscular man. He doesn't seem to be very bright and has a dull sounding voice. Despite this he was clever enough to avoid Azkaban after his master's first downfall. Though he bows sycophantically before Voldemort, his loyalty is questionable as he did not attempt to find his master when he disappeared. He was also a cruel individual as he was willing to use the Killing Curse on Hermione Granger who was a teenager. He likely had dark hair much like his son.

Notes and references

  1. The Crabbe family was listed on the Sacred Twenty-Eight, so as of the 1930s all members had to not be Muggles or Muggle-borns.
  2. See this interview; “Samantha: Was Snape the only Death Eater who could produce a full Patronus? J.K. Rowling: Yes, because a Patronus is used against things that the Death Eaters generally generate, or fight alongside. They would not need Patronuses.”
  3. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 4 (Horace Slughorn) - Horace Slughorn: You'll be Gryffindor like her, I suppose? Yes, it usually goes in families. Not always, though.
  4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Chapter 36 (The Parting of the Ways) - "“Avery — Nott — Crabbe — Goyle —” “You are merely repeating the names of those who were acquitted of being Death Eaters thirteen years ago!” said Fudge angrily."
