We want to hear about it...
Hello, My name is Judy and I’ll be talking about, Half-Bloods, like I said in my last blog. Okay so, Half-Bloods are known for, well, Half-blood is the term commonly given to wizards and witches who have both Muggle/Muggle-born and wizard ancestry. By the 1990s, half-bloods were the most common type of magical person, as the wizarding population would have become extinct had they not inter-married with Muggles and Muggle-borns. It should be noted that any wizard who is not either Pure-blood or Muggle-born is considered a Half-blood, even if they have two wizard parents; they need not have exactly half-Muggle/half-wizard heritage. It should be noted that any wizard who is not either Pure-blood or Muggle-born is considered a Half-blood, even if they have two wizard parents; Non-magical children born with at least one magical parent are considered Squibs by the wizarding community rather than Half-bloods or Muggles. The Dark Lord (as a death eater would say, aka I’m one of the death eaters) hated Muggles and Muggle-borns, despite having a Muggle father, and denied his half-Muggle heritage, leaving hints that he was a pure-blood instead, emphasising his heritage to the famous pure-blood ancestor, Salazar Slytherin, to make himself more believable. Severus Snape may be another example; his self-entitled nickname was "Half-Blood Prince" because his mother, Eileen Prince, was a pure-blood witch and his father, Tobias Snape, was a Muggle. However, Remus Lupin (or Professor Lupin if you are a student at Hogwarts) reported that he never used the nickname openly. This, as well as Snape's membership in the Death Eaters, suggests he may have been ashamed of his Muggle heritage, at least in his early life. (Spoiler!) Professor Severus Snape dies in the last movie which, The Dark Lord wanted the Elder wand and said “””, I cannot have the wand, I does not choose me, but you…” and speaks “ parseltongue” and tells Nagini in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2.) (Another Spoiler, Albus Dumbledore dies by Professor Snape in the sixth movie/book Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince). When the Ministry of Magic fell under Voldemort's control in 1997, Muggle-borns were openly persecuted and pure-bloods were favored above all else. Half-bloods were still accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but were not treated as well as the pure-blood students. (one pure-blood is Draco Malfoy aka, new member of the death eaters) So that’s all I know about Half-Bloods, um, See yøu in my next bløg I guess, bye. ;-; -Judy
