"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 viciously 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 inaccurately acquitted of being a Death Eater by the British 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 Lestrange to try and capture Harry, Hermione, and Neville, who were hiding in the Time Room.[6] 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.[7] Crabbe's reaction over his son's death is unknown if he was even aware of it at all. Crabbe likely fought at the Battle of Hogwarts as well, although his presence in this battle is unconfirmed.

Post-war

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

Physical appearance

Much like his son, Crabbe was a large muscular man, and spoke with a dull voice.

Personality and traits

He appeared to be rather unintelligent and slow-witted, but he was cunning enough to avoid Azkaban after his master's first downfall. Though he bowed sycophantically before Voldemort, his loyalty was highly questionable as he did not attempt to find his master when he disappeared.[5] Like most Death Eaters, he was very sadistic and bloodthirsty, as he was willing to use the Killing Curse on Hermione Granger who was a teenager, during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries,[6] showing he had qualms about harming innocents.
