Harry Potter Character - Draco MalfoyDraco Malfoy (born 5 June 19801) is the antagonist of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books and Harry Potter's archenemy. He is described as a pale-faced boy with white-blond hair, pointed features, and cold grey eyes. Harry describes him as a spoiled, arrogant, and selfish person.
Malfoy's intense rivalry with Harry is mostly a product of envy, given the latter's fame and phenomenal successes at Hogwarts. Additionally, Malfoy taunts Ron Weasley's family for their poor financial situation and treats Hermione Granger with utter disdain for being Muggle-born, calling her by the derogatory term Mudblood.
Draco is the only child of Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy (née Black).
The Malfoy family3 symbolises prejudice; Rowling once compared them to the Nazis. The family is old, aristocratic, formal, clannish, very affluent, and extremely proud of their pure bloodlines. Most, if not all, of them were in the Slytherin House. They harbor a very intense distaste against Muggle-born witches and wizards and Muggles in general.
The family manor is in Wiltshire in southwest England and was once staffed by the family house-elf Dobby, whom Harry Potter frees from enslavement in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It can be assumed that the Malfoys have lived in the manor for generations, as they seem to have secret chambers (not unlike Salazar Slytherin's Chamber of Secrets at Hogwarts) in the house where they hide Dark objects and heirlooms that could damage the family name.
By making the Malfoy family rather small, Rowling re-enforces the idea that prejudice dies out. The Malfoys have a very limited selection of people to marry, since they refuse to marry anyone who is not a pure-blood.
Though he is very proud of his family, as he was taught to be, Draco's relationship with his father, Lucius Malfoy, is somewhat unclear; while Draco is very loyal and boasts about his father's power, he is often stung by Lucius's strict rebukes and critical remarks.
Lucius Malfoy's capture at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a turning point for the family. Draco replaces his father as a Death Eater, and Narcissa convinces Severus Snape to make the Unbreakable Vow to protect her only son.
