Now don’t think that I’m siding up with the evil Lord Voldemort, for I can never think of advocating the cause of someone like him. But then, didn’t you ever feel that Voldemort, as a child, was wronged?
With the whole world eager to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 movie, let me scour for the reasons that made him as vile as he is to the whole world.
Tom Riddle Sr. – Yes, I’m talking about Voldemort’s human father. He is the biggest reason behind the metamorphosis of Tom Riddle to Lord Voldemort! He abandoned Voldemort’s mother, when Voldemort was still in her womb, etching an intense dislike of anything human on young Voldemort’s heart.
Merope Gaunt – Merope, his mother, a witch, charmed Tom Riddle Sr. into marrying her. And the guy realized his folly soon, leaving her and the unborn Voldemort forever. Perhaps, trust in a more real form of love could have helped her.
Magic, the wrong way – Voldemort ranks next only to Albus Dumbledore, when you consider his skills at magic. He feared none except the old man. His intelligence is so laced with evil and a sadist’s attitude that he got it all wrong, dabbling into Horcruxes and all.
No Love – Throughout the series, Voldemort never believed in the all-encompassing force of love. It ultimately led to his downfall, even when Dumbledore tried his best to let the power of love be known to the orphan kid he took into Hogwarts as Tom Riddle.
Riddle Riddle – Perhaps, what explains Voldemort’s inclination towards everything dark and sinister is his surname! Yes! Riddle – He remained a riddle; a closed book, harboring malice towards one and all. What else can you term the occasional glint of evil in his eyes for Bellatrix Lestrange, that equally evil lady, who just adored him!
