"Former" loyalty to Gringotts

I don't think Griphook was "formerly" loyal to Gringotts. (SPOILER ALERT) I think he was always loyal to the bank. After helping Harry, Ron and Hermione break into the Lestrange's vault he turns on them and joins the Gringotts goblins. Doesn't that prove he's loyal to Gringotts still? --Margiechocoholic Medieval Broomstick Owl me! 13:23, September 12, 2009 (UTC)


I think there should be a Gringotts individual infobox or a goblin infobox. User:Quirinus Quirrell


I´ve read on TLC that Griphook is killed by Voldmemort in the film adaptation of DH. Can this be canon. It doesn´t contradict the book, doesn´t it?--Rodolphus 15:28, April 4, 2011 (UTC)

Bumping--Rodolphus 12:29, April 7, 2011 (UTC)

It is assumed that Voldemort had a huge fit of anger and killed everything in sight (except for the Malfoys and Bellatrix) when he found out about the break-in at Gringott's, and Griphook is amongst the dead bodies in the scene where Voldemort and Nagini creep through the room and step on and around the bodies. It is film canon. Book the book he kills the goblin that came to inform him of the break-in, but it's not Griphook. And there aren't a huge bunch of dead bodies around, like in the movie.

"The Elder Wand slashed through the air and green light erupted through the room; the kneeling goblin rolled over dead; the watching wizards scattered before him, terrified. Bellatrix and Lucius Malfoy threw others behind them in their race for the door, and again and again his wand fell, and those who were left were slain, all of them, for bringing him this news, for hearing about the golden cup —"
Deathly Hallows, Chapter 27

In the book, the scene is just as bloody as in the film (perhaps a bit more, as it is clear Volemort wouldn't have spared the Malfoys and Bellatrix if they got in their way as he did in the film). I'd say Griphook's death does not contradict the book in any way (that I am aware, of course) and, as such, will add it to the article. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:14, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Griphook die inside the Lestrange's vault in Gringott's Wizarding Bank at Diagon Alley, London? After all, that is where Voldemort got to hear the cup was stolen and that is where he got so enraged he killed everyone present, except those who managed to get out the vault in time (like Lucius Malfoy and Bellatrix Lestrange). His biographical information now states he died at Malfoy Manor, Wiltshire.

You are mistaken, Piandao85. "He was standing in a dimly lit room..." "... and he strode from the room, through the hall, and out into the dark garden where the fountain played; he called the snake in Parseltongue and it slithered out to join him like a long shadow...." --Deathly Hallows, Chapter 27

"Somewhere in the dark garden beyond the hedge a fountain was playing." "The hallway was large, dinly lit..." "The drawing room was full of silent people, sitting at a long and ornate table..." --Deathly Hallows, Chapter 1

It was definitely Malfoy Manor, not Gringotts. Plus, if you saw the film, you would know from the vision that it was Malfoy Manor. AlastorMoody 22:20, November 11, 2011 (UTC)

I always questioned Griphook being dead in the books because he probably didn't go to Malfoy Manor after the robbery, as he had already suffered once there and had fled after the incident with placing the duplicate sword in Bellatrix's vault. Until we get a definitive answer for Rowling, I'll be skeptical. Ztyran (talk) 01:42, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

If he hadn't taken the sword of Gryffindor when Harry Potter needed it most, I'd be sorry that he died, but instead I'm glad. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:21, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry About Page Edit

While trying to upload a photo to this page, the text kept getting messed up, the picture would not remain the right place, and the text would go through the picture! I must apologise about this, and it was angering me to such a degree that I was about ready to toss my computer out the window! If someone could sort it out, it would be great. It's during the "Breaking into Gringotts" section.... AlastorMoody 22:08, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
