Role in the Books[edit]

Beginner warning: Details follow which you may not wish to read at your current level.

Goblet of Fire[edit]

When Harry was viewing Albus Dumbledore's memories in the Pensieve, he saw a session where Igor Karkaroff was naming Death Eaters while trying to bargain for a shorter sentence. One of the names he provided was that of Dolohov; Bartemius Crouch, who was presiding over the Wizengamot at that point, said that they had already apprehended Dolohov.

Order of the Phoenix[edit]

Dolohov broke out of the wizard prison with Bellatrix Lestrange, Augustus Rookwood, and seven other convicted Death Eaters.

In the Battle at the Department of Mysteries, Dolohov and Jugson had cornered Hermione, Harry, and Neville, and Hermione Silenced him when he tried to call out their location to bring the other Death Eaters. After Jugson had been Petrified, Dolohov seriously injured Hermione with a curse in the form of a streak of purple flame, broke Neville's wand and nose, and ended up Petrified by Harry. Later re-animated, he was in the battle in the room of the Veil, where he was again Petrified by Harry.

Half-Blood Prince[edit]

When Lord Voldemort, or Tom Riddle as he is then known, is seen in Albus Dumbledore's memories returning to Hogwarts to apply for the job of teacher of Defence Against the Dark Arts, Dumbledore asks him about his "friends" waiting for him in Hogsmeade. Dolohov is one of the friends mentioned by name, along with Mulciber, Nott, and Evan Rosier.

Deathly Hallows[edit]

When Harry, Ron, and Hermione escape from the Weasley wedding and head for Tottenham Court Road, they are tracked there by two Death Eaters, Dolohov and Thorfinn Rowle. Rowle is Stunned by Harry from the concealment of his Invisibility Cloak; Dolohov is Petrified by Hermione. They both then have their memory modified by Hermione.

In the first part of the battle of Hogwarts, as Harry, Ron and Hermione make their way invisibly through the Entrance Hall on their way to the Shrieking Shack, they pass Dolohov who is dueling with Dean Thomas. Peeves drops a Snargaluff pod on Ron's head. Distracted by this, Dolohov is Petrified by Parvati Patil, who is also there dueling with Travers. In an interview after the publication of the final book, the author stated that it was Dolohov who killed Remus Lupin in the Battle of Hogwarts.

When Harry heads for the Forbidden Forest to meet Voldemort, Dolohov is one of the two guards that he follows; the other is Yaxley.

Strengths[edit]

He seems to be a very skilled wizard in terms of dueling and the Dark Arts. He was powerful enough to defeat Moody and Remus on separate occasions and almost defeated Sirius Black before Harry hit him with a spell from behind.

Weaknesses[edit]

He has been known to be somewhat easily distracted on a few occasions.
