He is an evil wizard bent on controlling firstly Britain, then the world, killing all muggles and achieving immortality through the practice of Dark Magic. He is so feared by magical people that most refer to him as "You-Know-Who" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" rather than say his name out loud. He is also referred to as the "Dark Lord", although generally only by his followers, the Death Eaters. His name means Flight from death, or alternatively Theft of death, in French (vol de mort).
