"...Wilkes - killed by Aurors a year before Voldemort's downfall..."
Sirius Black on Wilkes.[src]

Wilkes was a Dark Wizard and a Slytherin student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After graduating from Hogwarts, he became a Death Eater and a loyal and devoted servant of Lord Voldemort. He fought in several battles during the First Wizarding War. During the end of the war, he was pursued by Aurors and was killed while trying to avoid imprisonment in Azkaban.

Biography

Wilkes attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1970s and was sorted into Slytherin house. According to Sirius Black, he was member of a gang of Slytherins and aspiring Death Eaters which included Severus Snape, Avery, Mulciber and Evan Rosier. They all entered the service of Lord Voldemort during the height of the First Wizarding War. Wilkes fought in several battles of the war. In 1980, a year before Lord Voldemort's downfall, Wilkes was caught by Aurors and was killed, while attempting to avoid being imprisoned in Azkaban.[3]

Magical abilities and skills

  • Dark ArtsBeing a Death Eater, Wilkes would have been highly proficient and accomplished in dark magic. More than likely, he would have been able to perform the Unforgivable Curses, along with various other dark charms and spells
  • Duelling: Being a Death Eater who participated and fought in the First Wizarding War, he likely was a fairly competent duellist with some skill in martial magic. As he fought against Aurors while trying to resist arrest, it can be presumed he was skilled enough to hold back against them for some time, although he was not strong enough in duelling as he was eventually overpowered and killed by them.
