Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Avery
|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character|
Avery (whose first name is never given) is a Death Eater. He has remained free.
Role in the Books
When Lord Voldemort returns to life and summons his Death Eaters, Avery is one of the ones who returns to the call. Avery breaks ranks to plead for forgiveness and is rewarded with the Cruciatus curse.
In a dream, Harry sees Voldemort discussing a plan with one of his Death Eaters. It seems that Avery has suggested a certain way to retrieve an object, and it has not worked. Augustus Rookwood, a one-time Ministry employee, is explaining that it could never have worked, and Voldemort, hearing this, orders Avery to attend him. Harry wakes up, wrenches his attention away, and tries to ignore Voldemort torturing Avery.
Avery is one of the twelve Death Eaters ranged against Harry and the five other members of Dumbledore's Army in the climactic Battle in the Department of Mysteries. We believe that Avery was one of the ten Death Eaters left standing in the room of the Veil, and thus one of the nine held in that room by Albus Dumbledore's anti-Apparition spell at the end of the battle.
Avery is mentioned in passing. Twice, Professor Dumbledore and Harry visit Horace Slughorn's memories of one particular night when Slughorn is meeting with Tom Riddle and his associates. In both of those memories, Slughorn notes that it is eleven o'clock, and says that it is time to send the gathered students off to bed, remarking to two of them, Avery and Lestrange (who could be either Rodolphus or Rabastan), that they have an essay due.
