The title of this article is conjectural. Although it is based on canonical information, the actual name is a conjecture and may be supplanted at any time by additional information released from canonical sources. If this occurs, please move this page to the appropriate title.
This article is about the gang of Slytherins during the 1970s. You may be looking for the gangs during the 1940s or 1990s.
It was partially Severus Snape's relationship with this group that lead his friendship with Lily Evans to end unpleasantly. It is likely that they played a role in influencing his prejudice towards Muggles and his inclusion into the Death Eater ranks.
Lucius Malfoy might have been associated with this group as well. He is familiar with Snape and many of the other members of the gang, and he attended Hogwarts around the same time.
There are members from the Avery, Lestrange, Mulciber, and the Rosier families in both this gang and in Tom Riddle's gang. Both gangs are noted for their membership with the Death Eaters, and considering the timeline, it is possible that they are sets of parents and children. The parents would have joined Tom Riddle's gang in the 1940s, and the children joined the Gang of Slytherins in the 1970s.
None of these individuals attempted to help Snape during Snape's Worst Memory, even though Avery and Mulciber (whom Lily Evans singled out as his close friends among the gang) were probably in his year and would have joined the exodus outside after their Defence Against the Dark Arts OWL. It is unknown why, but considering how adamently Snape defended them during the Prince's Tale, there might have been a hierarchy to their friendship in which the impoverished half-blood ranked lower than the two (presumed) pure-bloods.
