"Put it down, Bella, we mustn't touch what isn't ours."
Severus Snape[src]

A Dark Curio[1] is a very strange and interesting object which evokes curiosity. Severus Snape owned one of these.



Bellatrix Lestrange: "Cissy, you can't do this, he can't be trusted!"
Narcissa Malfoy: "The Dark Lord trusts him."
Bellatrix Lestrange: "The Dark Lord is mistaken."
— Bellatrix and Narcissa discussing[src]

In 1996 Bellatrix Lestrange and Narcissa Malfoy searched to Spinner's End in Cokeworth to ask for help from Severus Snape to ask him for help to watch over Draco Malfoy while doing Voldemort's orders.

Asking for help

Severus Snape: "As it so happens I'm aware of your situation, Narcissa."
Bellatrix Lestrange: "You? The Dark Lord told you?"
Severus Snape: "Your sister doubts me. Understandable. Over the years I have played my part well. So well I've deceived one of the greatest wizards of all time."
Bellatrix Lestrange: "'(Makes a scathing sound)'"
Severus Snape: "Dumbledore is a great wizard, only a fool would question it."
— Severus, Bellatrix and Narcissa on the subject[src]
While Narcissa asked Severus for help, Bellatrix instead walked over to Snape's stuff, picked up a Dark Curio and re-placed it after being told so by Snape.
