The Story of Nagini (+ How She Met Voldemort) - Harry Potter Explained

Hey everyone,

Welcome to another installment of Harry Potter Theory. In this video, we’re going to be discussing both the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises, as well as lord Voldemort and his trusty companion Nagini.

The Nagini that we know from the Harry Potter films was first introduced in the Goblet of Fire, where she is described as eating the body of muggle Frank Bryce after his brutal murder.

And from as far back as we can remember, she’s glued to Voldemort’s side- a trustworthy and loyal companion through seemingly any kind of adversity. When Voldemort was weak and just a shadow of the powerful man that he usually was, she was still there right by him- and this truly speaks to the bond that Voldemort and Nagini had. However, the Nagini that we know from the Harry Potter franchise is not expanded upon much in the original series, and it’s not until Fantastic Beasts came out that we got a little bit more of her history. Nagini is such a rich character with a lot of history, but in harry Potter we only see her in her snake form, and the relationship that she has with Voldemort had already been developed.

We don’t really get a proper sense of who is she or what her story is, and in today’s video I’m going to be diving in to the history of Nagini, not just the snake, but the woman.

Nagini’s birth year is not officially recorded anywhere, but we do know that when we first see her in Fantastic Beasts, it’s the year 1927, and she looks to be in her late 20s or so. With this in mind, I’m going to assume that Nagini was born sometime around the year 1900.

However, Nagini wasn’t born in to normal circumstances- she wasn’t born as a normal, healthy young baby, she was born with a curse. We don’t know whether or not Nagini came from a family of witches, muggles, or something else, but we do know that her lineage had the ‘maledictus’ curse in it’s bloodline, a dark curse that is passed on through generations of family members and is transferred from mother to daughter. Because of this, Nagini was born a female ‘Maledictus’ - one who carries the Maledictus curse. A ‘Maledictus’ suffers from a blood malediction- a type of curse that causes the sufferer to slowly transform in to an animal over the course of their life. The animal can vary according to the specific curse. In Nagini’s case, her blood malediction meant that she was destined to turn in to a snake- becoming less human and more snake each and every day. Generally, for quite a number of years, the Maledictus will possess the ability to transform at will, but that’s what slips over time. Eventually, you will lose the ability to transform, and will be stuck in whatever animal form that is destined for you.

Though we don’t have an exact date, it’s speculated that Nagini and Voldemort met in the forests of Albania, sometime in the 1980s. At this point, Nagini would have likely fully-assumed her snakelike form, and Voldemort would have been hiding in his disembodied state.

What their initial interaction would have looked like is anyone’s guess- however, we do know a couple of things about Voldemort that would have helped him in interacting with a giant snake.
First of all, Voldemort is the descendant of Salazar Slytherin- this means that his connection to snakes is strong, and that he can even communicate with them because of his ability to speak parseltongue. Nagini, who would have been stuck in her Maledictus form at this point in time, would have probably leaped at the opportunity to finally speak with someone. She was a lost Maledictus that was devoid of communication- and finally she encountered someone who could understand her- it was someone that she could tell her story to. Whether Voldemort would have been able to recognize that she was a Maledictus or not is unclear, however, he is an extremely versed Legilimens, so I’m sure he could have taken a look inside of her mind and figured it out.

At this point in time, both Nagini and Voldemort were a bit lost in the world, similar to when she first met Credence. Nagini was stuck in a snake form, an entirely new identity, and was completely devoid of human interaction. She probably had no idea what her next move was going to be, and she must have been incredibly lonely.
