'''Rabastan Lestrange''' was a [[pure-blood]] [[Wizardkind|wizard]], brother of [[Rodolphus Lestrange|Rodolphus]], brother-in-law of [[Bellatrix Lestrange|Bellatrix]], possibly son of [[Lestrange]] and likely a [[Slytherin]] at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]].

Rabastan was a very loyal [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]], willing to use the [[Dark Arts]] to commit atrocities for the sake of his master. He was not as brave or as calm as his brother as he is described as "nervous-looking" during his trial in 1981 with his eyes "darting around the crowd" though this could just because because he was, possibly, much younger than his brother; Purebloods often have quite large gaps between their children, for example Pollux Black and his wife had a child in 1925, 1929 and then their last child was born in 1938, so it could be possible that Rabastan was only in his late teens, or early twenties, at the time of his trial.

"The Dark Lord will rise again, Crouch! Throw us into Azkaban; we will wait! He will rise again and will come for us, he will reward us beyond any of his other supporters! We alone were faithful! We alone tried to find him!"
Bellatrix Lestrange declaring the loyality of her, Rodolphus and her brother-in-law Rabastan to the Dark Lord[src]

Rabastan Lestrange was a pure-blood wizard, brother of Rodolphus, brother-in-law of Bellatrix, possibly son of Lestrange and likely a Slytherin at Hogwarts. He was a Death Eater who fought in the First Wizarding War. The Lestranges were among Lord Voldemort's most loyal and trusted servants, the only ones who searched for him after his first downfall. After Voldemort's first downfall, Rabastan, Rodolphus, his wife Bellatrix and Barty Crouch Jr. participated in the torture and permanent incapacitation of Alice and Frank Longbottom and was sentenced to life imprisonment in Azkaban. Rabastan later escaped with a group of Death Eaters and fought in several battles of the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, and possibly the Battle of Hogwarts. After Lord Voldemort's final defeat, Rabastan was presumably killed or imprisoned in Azkaban once more.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Rabastan possibly attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was sorted into Slytherin house, like his brother Rodolphus. It is possible that he didn't attend Hogwarts at the same time as Rodolphus, as he was not mentioned among a small group of Slytherins and future Death Eaters, as Rodolphus and Bellatrix were.

First Wizarding WarEdit

Rabastan served as one of Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters during the First Wizarding War. He, along with Rodolphus and Bellatrix, were among Voldemort's most loyal servants. Soon after the conflict ended in late 1981, Rabastan was put on trial with his brother Rodolphus, sister-in-law Bellatrix, and Barty Crouch Jr. for being a Death Eater and for participating in the torture of Alice and Frank Longbottom. They were all sentenced to life imprisonment in Azkaban.[2]

Second Wizarding WarEdit

Rabastan escaped Azkaban in 1996, along with his brother, sister-in-law and several other Death Eaters with the Dementors' defection to Voldemort.

Battle of the Department of MysteriesEdit

"We'll split into pairs and search, and don't forget, be gentle with Potter until we've got the prophecy, you can kill the others if necessary..."
Lucius Malfoy gives orders to the group of Death Eaters[src]

He later participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and was presumably returned to Azkaban afterwards[3], though he was at large once again by late 1997 after another Azkaban break-out.

Presumably, Rabastan participated in other battles in the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of Hogwarts.

Post-WarEdit

It is unknown what happened to Rabastan after Voldemort's death. He was either killed or imprisoned again in Azkaban.

Physical appearanceEdit

Rabastan is described as a quite thin man. It is unknown if Azkaban took a toll on his appearance.

Personality and traitsEdit

Rabastan was a very loyal Death Eater, willing to use the Dark Arts to commit atrocities for the sake of his master. He was not as brave or as calm as his brother as he is described as "nervous-looking" during his trial in 1981 with his eyes "darting around the crowd".

Magical abilities and skillsEdit

EtymologyEdit

  • The name Rabastan may be a play on Rastaban, the traditional name of one of the stars of the constellation Draco. It is derived from an Arabic phrase "Rās al-Thu`bān (رأس الثعبان)" meaning "head of the serpent"; the snake is a symbol strongly connected with Lord Voldemort and Slytherin. The star is also known as Alwaid, meaning "who is to be destroyed" in Arabic.

Behind the scenesEdit
