The wizard world has a history of gender and race equality, their first female minister for magic was in the 18th century. The fact that she was even able to take the post implies that women had the same professional OPPORTUNITIES long before then, even if they had not yet been successful at taking such high-p ower positions. However, the muggle world is a different story. Muggleborns entering the wizard world would have brought with them the biases of their upbringing; racism, classism, religious-based prejudice and sexism among them. After the 18th century (at latest), the classism would have been the only remaining shared prejudice between the two societies.

**Maybe she´s Rita Skeeter, looking for some profit by selling the story. It´s not like the Ministry will go after her at this point...

The family being exiled, probably into Western Europe, could be the reason behind their unusual surname, since the proper variant would be Krumov (for men) or Krumova (for women). The practice of shedding the suffix (or leaving it as the male form for girls) is not unheard of among expats naming their children. As for Viktor being on the national Qudditch team, it's possible that after the HoleInFlag revolution in 1989 he returned to Bulgaria when the dictatorship fell and was recruited for the team.

With this in mind, it's possible that the reason why Voldemort is the only person to make multiple horcruxes is because the practitioner, asides from [[EvenEvilHasStandards having more conscience than Tom to not repeat something so horrible]], was the fear that they'd be more deformed and fragile. Tom Riddle may have only wanted seven horcruxes because by the time you get to double digits you go from "mutilated but just as capable" to "[[EvilCripple a skeletal anorexic]]". The snake resemblance was somewhat of a coincidence.

*** Rohm was killed in 1934, though. Five years later, at the start of WW2, the Nazis ''were'' extremely anti-gay. Gay people were sent to the concentration camps, you know.

** Hades was a horribly misunderstood wizard who was fascinated by the dead. He lived alone (later with his muggle wife, Persephone) in his dark underground home known to others at the Underworld. Hades was one of the first ever practitioners of necromancy, and ancient dark art that has always been poorly understood. Among his studies included ghosts, the undead, and was the first wizard to study the effects of the veil. Unfortunately word soon got out that those who recently died would find their way into Hades' Underworld. This lead to his nickname and bad reputation as "Lord of the Dead". Many muggles and wizardkind alike angrily tried to lay siege on the Underworld, leading Hades to breed Cerberus, the first known giant three-headed dog in order to protect himself and Persephone. Among his inventions is the Helm of Darkness aka his Cap of Invisibility which had an extremely powerful disillusionment charm cast on it (considered to be a forerunner to the invisibility cloaks).
