The Story of Nagini and How She Met Lord Voldemort - Craffic

Nagini (died on 2 May 1998-(age at least 71) was a female Maledictus cursed to transform into a snake. Other than Nagini she is called the “snake girl”. Her Blood status is “under being”.That means an individual, either fully human or part-human without power but from magical ancestry.

Harry Potter fans know this name all too well – Lord Voldemort’s deadly snake companion has done many terrifying moments. At the point of we had this girl when she is working under the Circus Skender (show owner) mention that “Nagini is a maledictus” while introducing her in the show.

“A Maledictus (plural Maledictuses) was a female individual who carried a blood curse that eventually turned her into a beast permanently. The curse was carried from birth and passed down from mother to daughter (not to son) .”

She did not appear until Goblet of Fire. In the book, Nagini was first introduced in The Riddle House, Goblet of Fire’s opening chapter, where she proceeded to eat the body of the poor, local Muggle, Frank Bryce.


An exploration of Nagini — one of Harry Potter’s most treasured or hated characters -is exciting but people have one major concern. She eventually becomes an evil character (something Kim told Entertainment Weekly not to happen yet in Crimes of Grindelwald). She helps a fascistic supremacist strike down and kills all types of wizards, witches, and muggles. She eventually even kills the person believed to be Lord Voldemort’s right-hand man – Severus Snape.

The decision to reimagine Nagini as an Asian woman does play into harmful stereotypes, according to culture critics.

“Let’s retroactively turn a woman of color into a literal object owned by a white man inspired by Nazis,” io9’s Charles Pulliam tweeted following the trailer’s debut

The most questionable part of all of this is that a character named Nagini isn’t South Asian, Mashable’s entertainment reporter Proma Kholsa tweeted, adding that Nagini’s name is Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language.

How She Met Voldemort

We met Lord Voldemort in Philosopher’s Stone. Nagini seemed integral to Lord Voldemort’s survival before he could be restored to his body, and we learned, quite grotesquely, that Voldemort even tasked Wormtail to ‘milk’ Nagini so he could live off her venom to keep his strength up as her companion.

She is loyal to Voldemort because he can speak with snakes. Voldemort’s ability to speak Parseltongue may then be the reason she befriends him since being trapped in snake form would isolate her from communicating with other people. Perhaps she even helps him open the Chamber of Secrets summons the basilisk.


The Last Horcrux

Nagini was the final Horcrux. ‘There will come a time when Lord Voldemort will seem to fear for the life of his snake.’ Nagini was not only the last Horcrux to be killed, but also the last Horcrux to be created.

In an interview, J.K. Rowling (Author of Harry Potter) Pottrevealed that it was the murder of Bertha Jorkins that made Nagini a Horcrux. After Voldemort discovered his Horcruxes were in danger, she was magically protected, described as being encased in a ‘starry, translucent sphere’. Dumbledore had already prophesied to Snape that if Voldemort began getting more protective of Nagini, it would finally be time to tell Harry that he has to die at the hands of Voldemort.

It was only after Harry ‘died’, that Lord Voldemort made the fatal mistake of releasing her from his protection, not realizing Harry would return, having already tasked Neville with destroying the final piece of Voldemort’s soul.


“By 1994, Nagini was seemingly trapped in snake form permanently and belonged to Lord Voldemort, with whom she had a special bond largely due to becoming a Horcrux after her master had killed Bertha Jorkins in 1994. After he murdered Bertha Jorkins, which accounted for the unusual amount of control that he had over her.”
