According to Sirius Black, he was member of a gang of Slytherins and aspiring Death Eaters which included Severus Snape, Avery, Mulciber and Evan Rosier. They all entered the service of Lord Voldemort during the height of the First Wizarding War.

Notes and references
- ↑ Wilkes was said to be a death Eater who died in 1980. Aurors were trying to imprison him in Azkaban, so he had to be at least 17 - as no underaged wizard could go to Azkaban (In Harry Potter's trial, Fudge mentions that "laws can be changed" but not that it had) - and had to have been born in or before 1963 to be 17 in 1980.
