Re: Bellatrix Lestrange: Character Analysis

I believe her borderline insanity and obsessive tendencies towards Voldemort started pre-Azkaban (as did her love of "crucio"). She went overboard at the Longbottoms and loved it, so that can't be considered "normal".

Azkaban probably removed the shreds of normalcy from her, and left her the raving obsessive lunatic we saw in the last three books. Azkaban didn't remove her magical skill, though, so it left a very dangerous witch.

I'm not sure she was obsessive and insane from birth - the same parents turned out Andromeda and Narcissa. I think she developed it over time, probably starting when she hit Hogwarts and was sent to Slytherin.
