* BadassGrandpa: He was 71 by the final book, though he had been a disembodied spirit for 14-odd years of his life, during which he did not age physically. He also doesn't look the age, being an example of more specifically EvilMakesYouUgly rather than Evil Makes You Old. It's also clear from the series that wizards age differently than everyone else.



* BadassGrandpa: He's been around for a while (the novels mention him as having gray hair, and he was likely an adult when he turned Lupin into a werewolf decades before the novels) and is still very active as both an ally to the Death Eaters and as a Snatcher.

* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Visits this upon Draco while disguised as Moody. Six words: "Draco Malfoy, the Amazing Bouncing Ferret." What was Draco doing? Attempting to hex Harry when his back was turned. Though, it could be just because he's a Malfoy. Or maybe he was enraged that someone was going to hurt Harry before he could get him to Voldemort.

WordOfGod implies he was just [[GoodIsNotSoft keeping in-character]] though.

** And finally, he's a thanatophobe to the point where ''anything'' no matter how self-destructive, is fair game. Hence why his overuse of Horcruxes has so damaged his soul he doesn't know when a bit of it's been annihilated, and thinking that just because someone is dead, they're no longer a problem. This bites him in the ass when he tries to parade Harry's body about and only pisses off the defenders of Hogwarts into a rally (which gives the still-alive Harry more than enough of a chance to sneak out of the fray and ambush him). And Voldemort's Boggart would be his own corpse, which shows his extreme fear of death.

Here come the villains! Listed below are [[BigBad Voldemort]] and his followers, the enemies of Harry and his friends. The name of the group comes from their belief that they can "conquer death." Mortal enemies of the Order of the Phoenix, the Death Eaters' goal is to exterminate all "impure" wizards, create a new world order in the wizarding society, and (eventually) achieve {{immortality}}. During both the First and Second Wizarding Wars, they are Voldemort's inner circle and act as the elite force in his [[ArmiesAreEvil army]].

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Sirius explicitly characterizes this as Wormtail's mentality. He would associate with whichever side seemed to be winning and/or was willing to give him power and respect, and he'd [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere betray them]] the instant he felt he could get a better deal elsewhere. This was what led him to become a spy for Voldemort in the first place, and he hid and didn't rejoin him for twelve years because Voldemort had become a DarkLordOnLifeSupport (and would likely be somewhat peeved because it was Wormtail's information that led to his downfall). He only returned when he had no other choice, as his former friends found him out. Voldemort is quite GenreSavvy about this, and as such treats Peter with absolutely no respect, [[spoiler: and sneaks a fail-safe against further treachery in the form of the silver hand he gave Wormtail, which was programmed to strangle him the instant he showed signs of disloyalty]].

* AmbitionIsEvil: Part of the reason he betrayed the Potters was because he didn't just want to be ''safe'', he wanted to be ''powerful''. Dumbledore could offer him protection, but Voldemort offered him the opportunity to be a highly-placed member of his order, and Peter just couldn't resist the chance.



* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Sirius explicitly characterizes this as Wormtail's mentality. He would never be part of any side unless he was not only safe or protected but respected and powerful and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere would willingly betray]] at the first sign of weakness. He betrayed the Marauders when they were weak and didn't set out to find Voldemort for a long time because the latter was DarkLordOnLifeSupport. Only when he had nowhere else to go [[BrokenMasquerade because his old friends had found him out]] did he go find Voldemort to return him to power, and even then he seemed to regret it. This eventually became his undoing, since Voldemort charmed his replacement hand to strangle him if he ever showed signs of returning to old habits.

Added DiffLines:

* FairWeatherFriend: Peter was this to the Marauders. It's implied that he befriended them for their popularity and talent so he could live vicariously through their accomplishments, as well as joining them in bullying other students. And while he was more of a hanger-on than an equal, and despite James and Sirius making fun of him as friends, all three of them considered Peter a true friend and would have willingly died for him. Peter proved that he lacked any similar conviction or sense of loyalty and willing betrayed them to be powerful and famous as Voldemort's right hand.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Peter ultimately pays for every horrible crime he did. He betrayed the Potters to Voldemort because he wanted to be powerful and famous as Voldemort's right hand. Instead, he wound up having to live as a rat for twelve years, and was hated by the Death Eaters because it was his information that led to Voldemort going to his downfall. [[spoiler: And after betraying almost every character in the story, he was betrayed by his magic hand for a tiny impulse of reluctance while attempting to kill Harry, to whom he has a life debt.]]
