[[File:Hoov.jpg|thumb|138px|Antonin Dolohov]]Antonin Dolohov was one of the early followers of [[Tom Riddle]] and served him even before his master began open hostilities against the rest of the [[wizarding world]]. He was among the [[Death Eaters]] who travelled to [[Hogsmeade]], along with [[Nott]], [[Rosier]], and [[Mulciber (Riddle-era)|Mulciber]], when Voldemort attempted to take the position of [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] [[Professor]] at Hogwarts, ostensibly to "wish him luck."

On [[17 June]], [[1996]], [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] lured [[Harry Potter]] to the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]] precipitating the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]]. During the battle, Dolohov was paired with [[Jugson]] as the [[Death Eaters]] searched for the [[Dumbledore's Army|five students]] who had come to the Ministry with Harry Potter. They tracked [[Harry Potter]], [[Hermione Granger]], and [[Neville Longbottom]] to a room off the Time Chamber, hitting the three of them with [[Impediment Jinx]]es. When Dolohov began to alert the other Death Eaters as to their location, Hermione [[Silencing Charm|silenced]] him to prevent it. He retaliated with an [[Antonin Dolohov's curse|unnamed curse]] which, despite being weaker than normal, because it was cast [[nonverbal spell|non-verbally]], severely injured Hermione. With a kick, Dolohov broke Neville's [[Neville Longbottom's first wand|wand]] and nose and then cornered Harry, wordlessly threatening him. However, he was momentarily distracted, giving Harry the chance to [[Full Body-Bind Curse|Body-Bind]] him.

Before several [[Order of the Phoenix]] members arrived, Dolohov recovered, and he was able to defeat [[Alastor Moody]] in a [[duel]]. He then attacked Harry with the same spell he used on Hermione, but most of the harm was blocked by Harry's [[Shield Charm]]. He tried to use it again when duelling with [[Sirius Black]], but was incapacitated by Harry before he could follow through.<ref name="OP35">''Order of the Phoenix'', Ch. 35</ref>

Shortly after the Death Eaters [[Fall of the Ministry of Magic|took over]] the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]] and placed the [[Taboo|Taboo curse]] on Voldemort's name, Dolohov and [[Thorfinn Rowle]] tracked [[Harry Potter]], [[Hermione Granger]], and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] to a [[Luchino Caffe|café]] on [[Tottenham Court Road]]. During the [[Luchino Caffe Duel|skirmish]] that ensued, Dolohov bound Ron with [[Incarcerous|conjured ropes]] and slammed an [[Cloak of Invisibility|invisible]] Harry into a wall with [[Expulso]], but just before Harry dropped his wand, Hermione hit Dolohov with a [[Full Body-Bind Curse]].

==Personality and traits==
Dolohov was loyal to [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] and was a merciless Death Eater who was willing to commit murder, torture and other atrocities without hesitation or regret. He showed no remorse about wounding sixteen-year-old Hermione Granger; in fact he was grinning about it as he tried to persuade Harry Potter to hand over the prophecy they were fighting over. Dolohov was very smug and when he defeated [[Alastor Moody]] in a duel he was very pleased with himself. Dolohov also displayed a cocky and highly self-confident attitude and had developed a habit of engaging more than one opponent at a time or challenging very powerful wizards such as the Prewett brothers, Moody, [[Sirius Black]], [[Remus Lupin]] and [[Filius Flitwick]] and it was not mentioned that he tried to escape when [[Albus Dumbledore]] joined the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]].

Dolohov was on friendly terms with his fellow Death Eaters, as he seemed to consider [[Yaxley]] and [[Thorfinn Rowle]] as close friends. When Voldemort spoke of how [[Charity Burbage]] supports [[Muggle]] rights and would permit breeding with them, Dolohov smiled in a confused fashion as if he literally thought that the idea of doing such a thing was insane, showing that he, like other Death Eaters, hated Muggles, [[Muggle-born]]s and most likely people who were [[half-blood]]s and blood traitors.

Dolohov was an extremely powerful and dangerous [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]], on par with [[Bellatrix Lestrange]], who seems to have focused his [[magic]] largely on harming others by means of the [[Dark Arts]].
*'''[[Duel]]ling''': Antonin Dolohov was an extremely skilled duellist and was one of the most dangerous and feared [[Death Eaters]]. He participated in the murders of [[Gideon Prewett|Gideon]] and [[Fabian Prewett]], both highly accomplished wizards, during the [[First Wizarding War]].<ref name="OP25" /> During the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], he duelled [[Harry Potter]], [[Hermione Granger]], and [[Neville Longbottom]] single-handedly, despite a [[Silencing Charm]] forcing him to use all [[nonverbal spell|nonverbal magic]] to do so. He incapacitated Hermione and broke Neville's nose, and Harry only managed to defeat him because [[Jugson]] had got the head of a baby (because of the [[bell jar]]) distracted him. Shortly afterwards, he defeated and injured [[Alastor Moody|Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody]], widely considered to be one of the best [[Auror]]s in recent times (and still highly respected even though this was after he had retired), in a [[duel]].

*'''[[Unforgivable Curses]]''': Dolohov attempted to cast the [[Killing Curse]] on Hermione before he was stopped by Harry. It is said that this curse requires lots of power to cast properly. Since he was arrested for torturing Muggles and other enemies it can be assumed that he was skilled with the [[Cruciatus Curse]].

*'''[[Dark Arts]]''': [[Antonin Dolohov's Curse|Dolohov's signature spell]] involved using a slashing movement with his wand which would shoot purple fire at his victim.

Death Eaters

"There was Antonin Dolohov. I — I saw him torture countless Muggles and — and non-supporters of the Dark Lord."
Council of Magical Law interrogation of Igor Karkaroff.[src]

Antonin Dolohov was a wizard and one of the original Death Eaters of Lord Voldemort. He fought in the First Wizarding War, during which he tortured many Muggles, and wizards and witches who were not supporters of Voldemort. Along with four other Death Eaters, he participated in the murders of Fabian and Gideon Prewett. Dolohov was caught and convicted of these crimes, and sentenced to life imprisonment in Azkaban.

He escaped after Voldemort's return and the start of the Second Wizarding War, in the mass break-out of 1996, and participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, where he was re-captured and incarcerated. By the summer of 1997, Dolohov was at large again. He and Thorfinn Rowle attacked Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley at Tottenham Court Road, but they were defeated and his memory was wiped. In 1998, Dolohov fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, during which he killed Remus Lupin. At the climax of the battle, he engaged Filius Flitwick in a duel, and was defeated.

BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

It's possible that Antonin Dolohov attended Hogwarts at the same time as Tom Riddle, and may have been a member of the Slytherin house as well as a member of Tom Riddle's gang.

First Wizarding WarEdit

"Then if I were to go to the Hog's head tonight, I would not find a group of them — Nott, Rosier, Mulciber, Dolohov — awaiting your return? Devoted friends indeed, to travel this far with you on a snowy night, merely to wish you luck as you attempt to secure a teaching post."
Albus Dumbledore to Tom Riddle.[src]
Hoov

Antonin Dolohov

Antonin Dolohov was one of the early followers of Tom Riddle and served him even before his master began open hostilities against the rest of the wizarding world. He was among the Death Eaters who travelled to Hogsmeade, along with Nott, Rosier, and Mulciber, when Voldemort attempted to take the position of Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor at Hogwarts, ostensibly to "wish him luck."

According to Igor Karkaroff, Dolohov tortured many Muggles and non-supporters of Lord Voldemort during the First Wizarding War.[4] With the help of four other Death Eaters, he murdered Fabian and Gideon Prewett, the brothers of Molly Weasley née Prewett.[5] He was not the only participant in the act, though, since Mad-Eye Moody informed Harry Potter years later that it took five Death Eaters to kill the two wizards,[6] whose murders were described as "brutal."[5]

After the fall of Voldemort in 1981, Dolohov was captured and sent to Azkaban prison for his crimes. His was the first name Death Eater Igor Karkaroff turned over to the Council of Magical Law in an attempt to get himself freed from Azkaban, only to be informed that Dolohov had been captured around the same time as him.[4]

Second Wizarding WarEdit

Early in 1996, Dolohov, along with the Lestranges and several other Death Eater convicts, escaped Azkaban and rejoined Voldemort.[5] It was speculated in the Daily Prophet that the escape was aided by Sirius Black, but that was refuted in the aftermath of the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.

Battle of the Department of MysteriesEdit

" [...] the Death Eater had ripped off his mask and was pointing his wand directly at Harry, who recognised the long, pale, twisted face from the Daily Prophet: Antonin Dolohov, the wizard who had murdered the Prewetts. Dolohov grinned. With his free hand, he pointed from the prophecy still clutched in Harry's hand, to himself, then at Hermione. Though he could no longer speak, his meaning could not have been clearer. Give me the prophecy, or you get the same as her [...] "
—Description of Dolohov's confrontation with Harry Potter in the Department of Mysteries.[src]

Antonin Dolohov firing curses alongside Lucius Malfoy at Harry and Sirius for the Prophecy

On 17 June, 1996, Lord Voldemort lured Harry Potter to the Ministry of Magic precipitating the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. During the battle, Dolohov was paired with Jugson as the Death Eaters searched for the five students who had come to the Ministry with Harry Potter. They tracked Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Neville Longbottom to a room off the Time Chamber, hitting the three of them with Impediment Jinxes. When Dolohov began to alert the other Death Eaters as to their location, Hermione silenced him to prevent it. He retaliated with an unnamed curse which, despite being weaker than normal, because it was cast non-verbally, severely injured Hermione. With a kick, Dolohov broke Neville's wand and nose and then cornered Harry, wordlessly threatening him. However, he was momentarily distracted, giving Harry the chance to Body-Bind him.

Before several Order of the Phoenix members arrived, Dolohov recovered, and he was able to defeat Alastor Moody in a duel. He then attacked Harry with the same spell he used on Hermione, but most of the harm was blocked by Harry's Shield Charm. He tried to use it again when duelling with Sirius Black, but was incapacitated by Harry before he could follow through.[7]

Presumably, Dolohov was captured in the aftermath of the battle by Aurors and returned to Azkaban.

Death Eater plansEdit

Dolohov at the Meeting at Malfoy Manor

By the summer of 1997, Dolohov was again at large following another Azkaban break-out. He attended the Death Eater meeting at Malfoy Manor that summer and was seated by Yaxley; he was impressed when Yaxley announced that he had placed Pius Thicknesse, the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, under the Imperius Curse. He, along with other Death Eaters, laughed when Voldemort insulted Bellatrix Lestrange and the Malfoy family.[8]

Luchino Caffe DuelEdit

Antonin Dolohov and Thorfinn Rowle

Shortly after the Death Eaters took over the Ministry of Magic and placed the Taboo curse on Voldemort's name, Dolohov and Thorfinn Rowle tracked Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley to a café on Tottenham Court Road. During the skirmish that ensued, Dolohov bound Ron with conjured ropes and slammed an invisible Harry into a wall with Expulso, but just before Harry dropped his wand, Hermione hit Dolohov with a Full Body-Bind Curse. Dolohov's and Rowle's memories were then modified by Hermione shortly after.

This spell seemed to work well enough at the time, but it actually had not been very effective, as the three friends found out later when Harry had a vision of Lord Voldemort torturing Rowle; it is implied that Rowle at least, and perhaps both of them, were being punished for their failure (and possibly also for summoning Voldemort unnecessarily when he was occupied with his search for the Elder Wand) by being subjected to the Cruciatus Curse.[9] Dolohov may have been among the Death Eaters assigned to keep an eye out for 12 Grimmauld Place, former headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix and temporary hide-out for Harry, Ron and Hermione, as one of the Death Eaters mentioned watching the gap between houses 11 and 13 on the first of September was "the man with the twisted face", a characteristic often used to identify Dolohov.[10] The Death Eaters were able to find out Harry, Ron and Hermione's location because Lord Voldemort's name was Tabooed.

Battle of HogwartsEdit

Yaxley: "Definitely heard something. Animal, d’you reckon?"
Dolohov: "That head case Hagrid kept a whole bunch of stuff in here… Time’s nearly up. Potter’s had his hour. He’s not coming."

During the Battle of Hogwarts on 2 May, 1998, Dolohov was seen fighting against Dean Thomas and Parvati Patil; Parvati shot a Full Body-Bind Curse at him in defence of Dean.[11] Dolohov also killed Remus Lupin in a duel.[12] The nature of Remus's death was not revealed, but his body was peaceful-looking,[13] suggesting that Dolohov used the Killing Curse or his own curse, as neither leaves visible marks. After Voldemort called a retreat and gave Harry Potter one hour to turn himself over, Dolohov and Yaxley stood guard in the Forbidden Forest. Harry followed them to the Death Eater camp to confront Voldemort.[14] When the battle later resumed, Dolohov was defeated by Filius Flitwick, a former duelling champion. His fate beyond this is unknown.

Physical descriptionEdit

Dolohov is described as having a "long, pale, twisted face" and as "burly," although not as large as the "huge" Thorfinn Rowle.[9] He has also dark hair.[2]

Personality and traitsEdit

Dolohov was loyal to Lord Voldemort and was a merciless Death Eater willing to commit murder, torture and other atrocities without hesitation or regret. He showed no remorse about wounding sixteen-year-old Hermione Granger; in fact he was grinning about it as he tried to persuade Harry Potter to hand over the prophecy they were fighting over. Dolohov was very smug and when he defeated Alastor Moody in a duel he was very pleased with himself. Dolohov also displayed a cocky and highly self-confident attitude and had developed a habit of engaging more than one opponent at a time or challenging powerful wizards such as the Prewett brothers, Moody, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Filius Flitwick and it was not mentioned that he tried to escape when Albus Dumbledore joined the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.

Dolohov was on friendly terms with his fellow Death Eaters, as he seemed to consider Yaxley and Thorfinn Rowle as close friends. When Voldemort spoke of how Charity Burbage supports Muggle rights and would permit breeding with them, Dolohov smiled in a confused fashion as if he literally thought that the idea of doing such a thing was insane, showing that he, like other Death Eaters, hated Muggles, Muggle-borns and most likely people who were half-bloods and blood traitors.

Magical abilities and skillsEdit

Dolohov was an extremely powerful and dangerous Death Eater, on par with Bellatrix Lestrange, who seems to have focused his magic largely on harming others by means of the Dark Arts.

Dolohov spell

Dolohov casting a nonverbal spell

  • Non-verbal magic: Dolohov was highly skilled at nonverbal magic as shown during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, when he was hit with a Silencing Charm cast by Hermione Granger. Despite being unable to speak, he fought Hermione, Harry, and Neville all at once, incapacitating Hermione with his signature spell (although its effects weren't as powerful). He was also able to cast the Incarcerous spell non-verbally. He attempted to hit Hermione with a non-verbal Killing Curse which is said to be difficult.

EtymologyEdit

  • Dolohov is a surname of Russian origin. It is the name of a minor character in War and Peace, by Leo Tolstoy. This Dolohov is brave, but cruel and vindictive, though he is caring toward his mother and sisters.
  • Antonin is the French or Czech version of the name "Anthony". The name is derived from the Latin Antonius and Antoninus. Antonius was the name of a prominent Roman family whose members included soldier and politician Marcus Antonius, more commonly known as Mark Antony. Antoninus was the name of another prominent Roman family whose members included Emperors Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus.

  2. 2.0 2.1 In Chapter 9 of Deathly Hallows, Dolohov is referred to as "the darker Death Eater", in comparison to blond Death Eater Thorfinn Rowle. As his complexion is described as "pale", this must have been referring to his hair.
