Corvus Lestrange was a French wizard and a member of the pure-blood Lestrange family. He was the son of Corvus Lestrange and Eglantine Lestrange. He married the already married Laurena Kama and had a daughter with her, Leta Lestrange. When Laurena died, he married Clarisse Tremblay and had a son with her, Corvus.


One day Corvus Lestrange put married Laurena Kama under the Imperius Curse and kidnapped her. He had a daughter with her, Leta Lestrange. Laurena died shortly after. Corvus never loved Leta, the same as with Laurena. Shortly after he married Clarisse Tremblay. He did not love her either, but he had a son with her, Corvus. When Clarisse died, Corvus was the light in his eyes.

Yusuf Kama, son of Laurena Kama and Mustafa Kama, swore an Unbreakable Vow to kill young Corvus and end the Lestrange lineage as revenge for the abduction of his mother. He mistakenly believed Credence Barebone to be Corvus Lestrange (along with much of the rest of the wizarding world), as he was unaware that a young Leta had switched Corvus in his crib with Aurelius Dumbledore​​, and attempted to resolve his vow by killing Credence.[2]

After his death, Corvus Lestrange's remains were interred at the Lestrange Mausoleum, at the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise, in Paris, his grand marble tomb dominating the many sarcophagi there.[3]

Magical abilities and skills


"Corvus" is Latin for "raven", probably from the Greek κόραξ (like. Thi, "raven"). This is an allusion to the family name of medium-to-large black birds including crows, ravens, jackdaws, etc. This is thus an allusion to the Dark nature of the Lestrange family, as such birds (particularly ravens) have often been harbingers of doom in folklore.
