Draco's father. Though he began the series as a powerful and terrifying man, he's been increasingly dishonored at the start of the novel, and he is forced to allow Voldemort to use his house as a headquarters for the Death Eaters. Lucius is clearly not thrilled about this arrangement, but like his wife Narcissa, he seems more interested in doing whatever he needs to do to protect his family than in taking a stand either for or against Voldemort. Voldemort forces Lucius to lend him his wand and, when the wand explodes, it seems as though Voldemort doesn't bother to replace it, making Lucius even weaker. Lucius survives the final battle but continues to be more interested in insuring his family's safety than anything else.
