In the world of Harry Potter, “The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black” was one of the largest, oldest, and wealthiest wizarding families in Great Britain. Their magical ancestry dates back to the Middle Ages. Like many families, the Black family is full of a variety of different characters, from arrogant, nasty, and flawed, to heroic, good, and kind. Although a vast majority of the Black family pursued a life of arrogance as they clung to prejudicial ideals, there were also a select few Black family members who courageously defied their family’s pureblood mania.
