"Welcome my friends! Thirteen years it's been, and yet, here you stand before me as though it were only yesterday. I confess myself... disappointed. Not one of you tried to find me... Crabbe! Macnair! Goyle!"
—Voldemort greeting his Death Eaters in the Little Hangleton graveyard.[src]

Mr Goyle was a pure-blood wizard, Death Eater, husband of Mrs Goyle and the father of Gregory. Goyle fought during the First Wizarding War. He didn't search for Lord Voldemort after his first downfall, but this was forgiven in 1995, after Voldemort's return at the Little Hangleton graveyard, in which Goyle was present. Goyle possibly fought at several battles of the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of Hogwarts. After the battle and Voldemort's final defeat, Goyle was presumably killed or imprisoned in Azkaban.


First Wizarding War

Goyle was a Death Eater during the First Wizarding War and was loyal to his master up until his downfall, when Goyle managed to avoid Azkaban. Around the downfall of Voldemort, Goyle and his wife had a baby boy, Gregory Goyle, who would be educated at Hogwarts from 1991 to 1998, and be friends with Vincent Crabbe and Draco Malfoy.

Second Wizarding War

Goyle was one of the few Death Eaters who returned to Lord Voldemort when he rose to power again in 1995. Voldemort was displeased when he learned that Goyle did not attempt to find him, but Goyle was forgiven. It is possible that he may have fought in several battles during the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of Hogwarts.

"My father reckons your aunt's a troublemaker, someone will teach her a lesson!"
Gregory Goyle mentioning his father to Susan Bones.[src]

During the 1995-1996 school year, Goyle's son, Gregory, and Crabbe's son, Vincent, both cornered Susan Bones, and Gregory told her that his father thought that her aunt Amelia Bones was a trouble-maker.[1]
