All that bowing and scraping he had to do for Voldemort had something to do with that, I'm sure.

I don't feel sorry for him - he had choices right down the line just like everyone else. He was never forced into anything, and if he was afraid during the first war, he could have hidden with the Potters and let Voldemort go hang.

He never had to betray them, and he could have gone to Dumbledore for help, but he chose the opposite.

Even after that, he could have chosen not to take care of Babymort, or cut Harry to bring him back to life.

I was reading the Graveyard scene the other day and came across and interesting thing that Voldemort says about Peter:

"he was the able-bodied servant I needed"

That just reminded me of the phrase "ready, willing and able," which is what Peter was.
