** 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).

Most people who espouse or champion the philosophy [[BlueBlood are of the elite]] like the Malfoy and Black families. They put a value on family ties like most of the nobility. Their antipathy towards muggles is similar to how prejudiced members of the nobility have seen peasants or rich people have looked down on common or poor people; because they're of a lower ranking and thus "lesser". Muggle prejudice is driven mainly by the belief that their ignorance of things like magic and ability to use "enlighting" powers makes them the equivalent of a third nation and thus their inferiors. Of course there's obviously a lot of anti-semitism parallels, but it's elitism which is the most prominent one.

[[WMG: Voldemort's deformities represent the amount of soul left in him.]]
While something as dark as [[BloodMagic horcruxes]] would leave you deformed, the reason why his face was flatter and other oddities represents the state of his soul. Namely, when less of one's soul is left so is more of his physical body; as if chopping off pieces of Tom Riddle's soul was magically mutilating his body. Being an EvilAlbino comes the loss of skin pigments, [[BaldOfEvil losing his hair]], the slit-like "nose" being the reduction of his nasal tissue, his body becoming thinner and more elongated. It's obviously not a 1:1 transition, but he does lose more of his physical form with each bit of soul taken, albeit the physical damage is a relatively less severe than the damage to his soul.

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.

[[WMG: Delores Umbrage and Dumbledore will someday run against each other for prresident, and Umbrage will not only steal all of Dumbledore's ideas, but will attack him too. Also, the Ministry of Magic will have two parties, one that has Voldemort running, and the other that has Umbrage and Dumbledore. Not only that but the party that has Umbrage and Dumbledore in it will be deliberately sabotaging Dumbledore.]]
In other words, it will be like Hillary vs Bernie but with wizards and magic. Unlike Hillary however, Dolores Umbrage will be allowed to do almost anything she wants to Dumbledore and he can't do anything about it. Also, Dumbledore will be treated much worse than Bernie is! For example, the Ministry will bully him, teasing him and hurting him. Also, there's a 30-50% chance that if Dumbledore wins, he will STILL lose!

It makes sense. In Muslim myth, Jinn are a third sentient race (apart from angels and humans) and have free will, like humans. They live in parallel societies that cannot easily be found, have special powers, and must follow the teachings of the Prophet. They are just as complex as humans in their motivations, there are good, evil, neutral ones, and everything in between. Depending on who you ask, they look just like humans too, only they have a special sort of fire in them (AKA magic) that they can use to do magical stuff.

* It's canon that at least some of the mortal or demigod ''heroes'' of mythology were wizards-- the ''Fantastic Beasts'' book mentions Bellerophon as the only wizard to defeat the Chimera.
