40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Rowling Thinks Regulus and Draco are Similar
We never get a chance to meet Regulus Black, but he actually plays a hugely important role in the story of Harry Potter. He’s the first person we know of to discover the Horcruxes, and it’s his work that Harry finishes in Deathly Hallows. Because he was initially a Death Eater, J.K. Rowling has likened Regulus’s story to Draco’s.
Regulus initially thought he believed in Voldemort’s mission, but eventually realized how horrible the man was. Draco comes to a pretty similar realization over the course of his work with Voldemort. He might be comforted to know he’s not the first person to realize he’d made a mistake.
