40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Sirius Had a Case of Arrested Development
Because he was imprisoned at such a young age, Sirius never got to become a real adult. Instead, his development was somewhat arrested. That’s why, even in the time that Harry knows him, he’s a bit of a loose cannon who typically takes his godson’s side. That was part of what Harry loved so much about his godfather.
Still, Sirius’s recklessness may also have ultimately cost him his life. He was so stir-crazy at the headquarters of the Order that he went to fight at the Ministry when he should have stayed home. If Sirius had been a little more willing to listen to reason, he may have survived the series. Of course, then he wouldn’t really be Sirius.
