"Welcome, Death Eaters! Thirteen years it's been, and yet, here you stand as if it were only yesterday. We are still united under the Dark Mark then! Or are we?"
—Voldemort greeting his Death Eaters in the Little Hangleton graveyard.[src]

Crabbe Sr. was a pure-blood wizard, a Death Eater and the father of Vincent Crabbe. Crabbe fought at the First Wizarding War. He didn't search for Lord Voldemort after his downfall, but this was forgiven in 1995, after Voldemort's return at the Little Hangleton graveyard, in which Crabbe was present. Crabbe fought at several battles of the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, after which he was imprisoned in Azkaban. Crabbe possibly escaped in 1997 and fought at the Battle of Hogwarts, during which his son, Vincent, was accidentally killed by his own Fiendfyre. After the battle, Crabbe was presumably killed or imprisoned in Azkaban.


Early lifeEdit

Mr. Crabbe was born into the Crabbe family, possibly as a relative of Irma Crabbe, member of the House of Black.

At an unknown time, Crabbe joined the Death Eaters.

First Wizarding WarEdit

Crabbe was a Death Eater during the First Wizarding War and was loyal to his master up until his downfall. Around the downfall of Voldemort, Crabbe and his wife had a baby boy, Vincent Crabbe, who would be educated at Hogwarts from 1991 to 1998, and he became friends with Gregory Goyle and Draco Malfoy. Crabbe then declared that he had been under the Imperius Curse to avoid Azkaban after his master's downfall.

Second Wizarding WarEdit

Crabbe was one of the few Death Eaters who returned to Lord Voldemort when he rose to power again in 1995. Voldemort was displeased when he learned that Crabbe didn't attempt to find him, but he forgave him.

Battle of the Department of MysteriesEdit

"We'll split into pairs and search, and don't forget, be gentle with Potter until we've got the prophecy, you can kill the others if necessary..."
Lucius Malfoy gives orders to the group of Death Eaters[src]

During the Second Wizarding War, Crabbe participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996, and was paired with Rabastan Lestrange during the pursuit of the six D.A. members, and was likely imprisoned in Azkaban, but escaped in 1997.

Battle of HogwartsEdit

During the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, Crabbe's son Vincent (who had also become a Dark Wizard) died by the effects of his own Fiendfyre curse. Crabbe's reaction over his son's death is unknown. Crabbe fought at the Battle of Hogwarts too.


Crabbe was presumably imprisoned in Azkaban after Voldemort's final defeat.

Behind the scenesEdit


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. See this interview; “Samantha: Was snape the only death eater who could produce a full patronus J.K. Rowling: Yes, because a Patronus is used against things that the Death Eaters generally generate, or fight alongside. They would not need Patronuses.”
