Harry Potter: this theory about Severus Snape and Voldemort corrects a big inconsistency

voldemort deceived; throughout the harry potter

sagaFor this article, we're going to assume that you've finished the Harry Potter books and/or movies, becausewe're obviously going to be spoiling. And we start now by remembering that throughout the saga, JK Rowling has fun playing games. make us doubt about Severus Snape and his allegiance: is he loyal to him? Albus Dumbledore or Voldemort?The more the saga progresses, the more we tend to move on. lean towards the second option… When in reality it is the first one is the good one.

For years, Snape took it upon himself and concealed his crime. his emotions so as never to arouse Voldemort's suspicions. Even when the latter kills the man he considered his right arm, he is unaware that he has deceived. But how is this possible,when we know that Voldemort has no mercy as soon as he has the slightest doubt about one of his “allies”? The question is all the more legitimate when we know thatthe Dark Master is probably the most gifted wizard in the world. in legilimency (the ability to read and penetrate minds) that has ever existed.

In the films and booksHarry Potter, the ability from Snape to; hide his true intentions from others Voldemort explained it implicitly: we know that he is one of the best in occlumency, the magical discipline consisting of block his mind against external penetration attempts. It is also he who is in charge of to train Harry to this art inHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Thanks to This talent, Severus Snape was able to prevent his master from reading his thoughts, but also from seeing his memories.

If this theory turns out to be correct, Severus Snape would be even more gifted at than we previously imagined. This is what would make it a much better occlumen than the rare sorcerers who also master this art, at the same time. the image of Bellatrix Lestrange and Draco Malfoy, only capable of closing their minds. OnReddit, an Internet user adds thatVoldemort's arrogance would be stronger than his tendency to be violent. suspicion,and that he would therefore never have suspected that another wizard is strong enough to be able to resist him.
