40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Sirius Thought Regulus Was Killed by Other Death Eaters
To his dying day, Sirius believed that his brother had been killed by his fellow Death Eaters. Sirius wasn’t sure exactly why that had happened but figured that Regulus had gotten cold feet when he saw what was involved with being a Death Eater.
Of course, we eventually learned that Regulus died trying to steal Voldemort’s locket, and was ultimately successful in doing so. It may have cost him his life, but Regulus’s last act was one of bravery and selflessness. That certainly complicates his brother’s feelings about him. He wasn’t such a worthless kid after all.
