Severus Snape bio:
Severus Snape grew up in the Muggle town of Spinner’s End and at the age of nine, when he met a young Lily Evans, he promptly fell in love. At Hogwarts, Snape was tormented by James Potter and Sirius Black but took solace in his friendship with Lily, until his obsession with the dark arts and blood status strained their relationship. Soon after graduation, Snape joined Lord Voldemort and became a Death Eater. When Snape told Voldemort about the prophecy he had overheard which led to the demise of his beloved Lily, he was filled with regret and turned to Dumbledore’s side while acting as a double agent.
Snape became the Potions teacher at Hogwarts and took an instant dislike to his pupil Harry Potter because of his resemblance to his father. After Voldemort’s second return, Snape took his place in the Order of the Phoenix while pretending to be a Death Eater loyal to Voldemort. Upon Dumbledore’s request, Snape killed the headmaster to spare Draco Malfoy from the task and proceeded to help in the Horcrux destruction by sending Gryffindor’s sword to Harry Potter. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort killed Snape in a misguided attempt to gain control of the Elder Wand.
