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

Wilkes was a Death Eater who fought in the First Wizarding War until their death a year before Voldemort's fall.

Biography

Wilkes attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1970s and was sorted into Slytherin house.

According to Sirius Black, Wilkes was a member of a gang of Slytherins and aspiring Death Eaters that 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, they 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, they were likely a fairly competent duellist with some skill in martial magic. They managed to fight a team of Aurors well enough that they had to be killed rather than taken alive, but considering they were defeated, they could not have been that good.
