Highmaster of Durmstrang[3]

Professor Igor Karkaroff (d. 31 July, 1997[1]) was a pure-blood wizard and the Highmaster of Durmstrang Institute[3]. He was one of the Death Eaters of Lord Voldemort in the First War, although he defected after his master's defeat, giving the names of fellow Death Eaters in exchange for his own freedom[4].

BiographyEdit

HeadmastershipEdit

When Karkaroff became Headmaster of Durmstrang, he once again allowed the school to regain its former negative stigma[5]. During his time leading the school, he encouraged a culture of fear and intimidation to grow amongst his students, and many parents withdrew their children from the school as a result[5].

Physical appearanceEdit

Karkaroff had sleek, short white hair and a very yellow smile[3]. His eyes, which were a very light blue, were often described as looking like chips of ice[2]. He had a fruity, unctuous voice and a smile that never quite reached his eyes[2].

Personality and traitsEdit

Karkaroff was an uncultured, unprincipled and egotistical man who enjoyed climates of fear, secrecy and intimidation[5].
