Re: Regulus Arcturus Black: Character Analysis

Question: Reg died in the lake, unknown to anyone but Kreacher, yes? His family, when he vanished, assumed the DEs had killed him - or so we suppose from Sirius. What did Voldemort and the DEs think had happened to Reg? If they thought he had deserted, they'd have sought him out to kill him - like Karkaroff. I can't see Voldy leaving Regulus to wander free if he had chickened out of the DEs.

Re Regulus: I was pleased and surprised at his character when we learned the details. His death was heroic and for selfless motives. Which is unusual for a Slytherin - he shows more characteristics of a Gryffindor!
