We all now her as Draco Malfoy’s crude pureblood mother but I bet most of you don’t know the skeletons in the cupboard.
Though she was a Pureblood and had high opinions on herself and believed in wizard supremacy she was never a Death Eater.
Her name comes from the mythological Narcissus as it perfectly captures the essence of both their appearance and elitist behavior. She was also the only Black since Phineas Nigellus Black not to be named after a star or constellation.
If not for the love for her son the world would have been in great danger and if it she not lied to Riddle the Malfoy family (in case the D.A. and Order were able to win) would have rotted in Azkaban.
Helen McCrory was originally cast as Bellatrix Lestrange. She is a highly gifted witch and Occlumens as she lied to Voldemort and she was even more powerful than Bellatrix Lestrange who had outsmarted Granger. She stopped Lucius from sending Draco to Durmstrang.
