The story of Harry’s triumph over Voldemort took place over seven years and held us all spellbound and ultimately satisfied that justice prevailed and that Harry avenged the death of his parents. It is hard to believe that Harry would settle down to a life of dullness following directly on from the final battle with Voldemort, or that his followers would all disappear and cause no more trouble in the wizarding world. We saw that the death-eaters were still active after the first downfall of Voldemort during the Quidditch world cup of 1994. This was even after a thirteen-year absence by the Dark Lord. The evil continued in his name when there was no hope of his ever returning. It is likely that they would continue their work even after this ultimate defeat. We know that some of his followers survived and even though they appeared repentant how can we be sure that they would not carry on their old ways in some small and sinister form? The argument of pureblood versus muggle-born wizards and witches would always carry on because people are just like that. There are those for whom differences in birth and upbringing, colour and creed mean nothing and there are those for whom this is an irritation or even an abhorrence. There is also the question of Voldemort’s actions and whereabouts during the time that Harry was still in Hogwarts under the reign of Dolores Umbridge and the year of the mystery of the Half-blood Prince. What was he up to at that time? Doubtless preparing for the overthrow of the ministry of magic and the destruction of Albus Dumbledore, but also he must have been continuing his studies of his own heritage and the artefacts that still remained of the four Hogwarts founders. With his powers at new heights he had the means to collect more treasures of the past and to look further into the secrets of Hogwarts castle itself. But how could this be achieved? He could not enter the castle himself and he would not want to share any information he gleaned with any of his followers. He had trusted them in the past and they had let him down again and again. There would be only one way. He would have to place a spy in the very heart of Hogwarts itself. And why not? It had worked before with Bartie Crouch. But who could he use for this task? He already had the use of Draco Malfoy to perform minor acts of information gathering. The boy’s friends Crabbe and Goyle were too stupid and useless for such purposes. No, it had to be someone that the Dark Lord could mould in his own image and to follow him unquestionably. He had to find a pupil to train and control in counterpart to Dumbledore and Harry Potter.
