    Lord Voldemort, auch bekannt als Tom Riddle, auch bekannt als das Böse in individual (wenngleich seit einigen Jahren ohne einen eigenen Körper und quasi nur als eiskalter geistiger Hauch vorhanden) hat längst nicht aufgegeben, Harry nach dem Leben zu trachten -- und langsam, ganz langsam gelingt es ihm auch mithilfe des ihm ergebenen Wormtail, neue Kräfte zu sammeln. --Heike Reher
