- Birth Notes
- Crouch is a Death Eater who was captured with the group responsible for torturing Frank and Alice Longbottom, parents of Neville Longbottom. His father, who headed the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the time, sentenced him to life imprisonment in Azkaban.
However, Crouch's father rescued him as a favour to his dying mother by switching their bodies. Crouch's mother later died and was buried under his name. His father kept him under control with the Imperius Curse and forced him to hide under an invisibility cloak at all times. Crouch was nursed back to health by Winky, the family's House-Elf. Bertha Jorkins discovered the truth, and years later it reached Lord Voldemort. He rescued Crouch and put his father under the Imperius Curse. Crouch then kidnapped Mad-Eye Moody and, with the help of the polyjuice potion, took over Moody's job of teaching Defence Against the Dark Arts. His father was later killed by Crouch himself.
Crouch planned to succeed where his master had failed, but also failed to kill Harry. Under the influence of Veritaserum, a powerful truth potion, he recounted his plan and his intentions throughout the year. He was to be watched over so that he could give his testimony later, but instead, before he could come to trial, he had his soul sucked out by Dementor's Kiss. It is important to note that he is still technically alive, but one would hardly dare to identify what he has been reduced to as "alive." It is never revealed what happened to him after he had his soul sucked out, but it is assumed he either died or was sent back to Azkaban.
