Narcissa "Cissy" Malfoy (née Black) is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. Although she began as a minor character, Narcissa had a hand in bringing about the three most prominent deaths in the Harry Potter series: Sirius Black, Albus Dumbledore, and Lord Voldemort. The character is the wife of Lucius Malfoy, mother of Draco Malfoy, sister of Bellatrix Lestrange and Andromeda Tonks, was the cousin of Sirius Black and a Dark witch — all are prominent characters; as the series continued she took on a much larger role.

Family

Born Narcissa Black (*1955 – present) to Cygnus Black and his wife, Druella (née Rosier), Narcissa is the youngest of three sisters, Bellatrix (who calls Narcissa "Cissy") and Andromeda being her older siblings. She was the cousin of Sirius Black and Regulus Black, and later became an aunt to Nymphadora Tonks, although it is unlikely that she acknowledges the connection since Tonks is the daughter of Muggle-born Ted Tonks. The Black family was a very old pure-blood wizarding family with firm prejudices against those of "impure" magical heritage, and Narcissa was no doubt taught these prejudices from an early age.

Narcissa is a tall, slim, blue-eyed blonde with, at least when Harry Potter first meets her, "a look that suggested there was a nasty smell under her nose". Harry notes that this habit of wrinkling her nose in disgust around those of non-pure-blood ancestry mars her otherwise beautiful looks. While Bellatrix's dark, strong features contrast with Narcissa's pale and fragile image, it is said that there is still a resemblance between the two sisters. Narcissa completed her education at Hogwarts, where she was in Slytherin House. She later married Lucius Malfoy, a Death Eater and heir to a wealthy pure-blood family, and they have one son, Draco.

Role in the series

Narcissa makes her first, very brief appearance in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. She attends the Quidditch World Cup with her husband and son, and they enjoy prime seats in the Top Box due to Lucius' "very generous contribution to St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries". The Minister of Magic himself, Cornelius Fudge, smiles and bows to her. Later in the book, Draco mentions that his father considered sending him to Durmstrang for his education but that, "Mother didn't like the idea of me going to school so far away". Draco casually lets slip to Ron Weasley in the forest the night of the Quidditch World Cup that both of his parents were out on the campsite, meaning Narcissa joined her husband to torture Muggles.

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Kreacher the house-elf manages to leave Number 12, Grimmauld Place and go to Narcissa's home, as she is the only available member of the Black family that he still respects. Since he is not Secret-Keeper, he cannot reveal the location of the Order of the Phoenix headquarters, although he does tell Narcissa about Harry and Sirius' close relationship. Thus the Malfoys discover how to lure Harry to the Department of Mysteries, on Lord Voldemort's orders, by exploiting Harry's bond with Sirius. At the end of Order of the Phoenix, Narcissa's husband is imprisoned in Azkaban and her son is hexed so severely on the Hogwarts Express by members of Dumbledore's Army that they joke he no longer resembles a human being. Ernie Macmillan remarks, "I must say, I'm looking forward to seeing Malfoy's mother's face when he gets off the train".

Narcissa is evidently as snobbish as her husband and son as indicated by her disgust when around non-pure-bloods and her comment (see below) that the Weasleys and Hermione Granger are "scum". Despite her arrogant, unpleasant personality, however, she is very protective of her family as revealed by her distress when her husband is in Azkaban and her obvious affection for her son. In the second chapter of Book 6, she puts herself in danger of punishment from Voldemort by telling Snape about the Dark Lord's plans. This suggests that she places her family above Voldemort's wishes, despite his demand for absolute loyalty. A snob, guilty of snobbery or snobbism, is a person who imitates the manners, adopts the world-view and apes the lifestyle of a social class of people to which that person does not by right belong. ...

Narcissa's appearance in this chapter of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is her first important scene. Despite Bellatrix's protests, she and Narcissa go to Severus Snape's house at Spinner's End. With her husband in prison and her son having been forced to become a Death Eater, Narcissa is distraught, almost hysterical. Draco has been given a difficult and dangerous assignment by Lord Voldemort. Narcissa believes that it is punishment for her husband's mistakes in the previous book, and that Voldemort doesn't mean Draco to succeed but to be killed trying - a sentiment that Snape (and later, Dumbledore) affirms later on. In speaking about the plan to Snape, she could have been guilty of "great treachery", though he claims to know of it already. She begs Snape to help Draco and gets him to make an Unbreakable Vow, stating that he will watch over her son, protect him from harm, and carry out the deed if it seems that Draco will fail.

Narcissa is later seen in Half-Blood Prince shopping with Draco for his new robes at Madam Malkin's. She and her son mock Harry when he enters the shop with his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Harry, Ron and Draco nearly start a duel, but Narcissa defuses the situation by leaving with her son, saying snidely, "now I know the kind of scum that shops here ... we'll do better at Twilfitt and Tatting's". It is evident that Narcissa is a bit overprotective of her only child, when he finds it necessary to snap that he is "... not a child, in case you haven't noticed, Mother. I am perfectly capable of doing my shopping alone". He later tells his friends that "Mother wants me to complete my education, but personally, I don't see it as that important these days". “The Leaky Cauldron” redirects here. ...

Although never a Death Eater, Narcissa shares her husbands views on blood purity. However, her views changed when Voldemort plotted her son's demise.[1]


In the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Narcissa again plays a significant role. She assumes a head-of-the-family role and both her husband and son look to her for guidance and decision-making. After Voldemort casts the killing spell on Harry, and after he comes back to consciousness, Narcissa is the one who checks to see if Harry is actually dead. Realising that he is not dead after feeling his heart beating, she quietly asks him if Draco is still alive in Hogwarts Castle. Harry whispers back in the affirmative, so Narcissa lies to Voldemort, claiming that Harry is indeed dead. She is seen at the end of the book with her husband and son, unsure what to do amid the celebration of Voldemort's death. Thanks to her earlier favour to Harry, the Malfoys later manage to "weasel their way" out of going to Azkaban.[1] “HP7” redirects here. ... Lord Voldemort (born c. ... In J.K.

Name origin

Her name is derived from the mythical figure Narcissus, whose name is both the origin of the word narcissism and the name of the narcissus, a small, fragrant flower (there are several poisonous varieties of the narcissus flower). In one version of the Narcissus myth, he fell into the pool in which he saw his beloved reflection, and died of a broken heart as he kept fading. Interestingly, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince [2], it is noted that "the long blonde hair streaming down her back gave her the look of a drowned person" in the darkness at Spinner's End. Another myth suggests that Narcissus wasted away after falling in love with his own reflection. A third (used by Genesis in the song Supper's Ready) is that Narcissus was turned into the narcissus flower. The character Narcissa cares greatly for aesthetics in addition to purity and nobility of blood. Narcissa is nicknamed "Cissy" by her sister Bellatrix, whom Narcissa calls "Bella" — the same pet name Lord Voldemort uses to address her. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...
