Function Order: Se-Fi-Te-Ni
Bellatrix is opportunistic in battle, and often reckless in chasing after those she intends to target—in the Battle of Hogwarts, her attention shifts rapidly and she takes after anyone within reaching distance. Her uncaring actions led her to imprisonment in Azkaban, and she eagerly escapes once Voldemort springs her—to wreak more havoc on the world. She can be a dangerous adversary, eager for glory and far more demanding than Malfoy, who often tries to lead through emotional appeals and manipulation—she would rather use direct violence, and enjoys torturing people. She has a “slavish devotion” to Voldemort that borders on sexual obsession—and is highly emotionally reactive, unhinged, and self-focused. She prides herself on her highborn birth and lashes out at anyone who refuses to give her what she wants. Bellatrix, out of her deeps-seated resentment for Pureblood families associating with Muffles and even marrying them, targets them first in any encounter. She can make ruthless decisions—unlike some of them, she chooses to kill her adversaries quickly and get them out of the way (thus reducing them to no threat at all) rather than incapacitate them. It’s a brutal and nasty way to fight, but wholly logical. But she also has good instincts—Bellatrix alone is the only Death Eater in Voldemort’s intimate circle who does not trust Snape… and she is right not to. He betrays them all.

Bellatrix is, admittedly, “insane.” She is also dominating, aggressive, disdainful of emotional breakdowns (she attacks her sister for being emotional at the thought of Draco dying for the Cause), and likes to mock Harry for his weaknesses. When his attempt to torture her fails, she laughingly reminds him that he has to mean it. Though she bends her will to Voldemort out of desire and affection, Bellatrix strikes fear into the hearts of everyone else. She snaps at people constantly and has a temper terrible to behold—but she can also make split-second logical decisions to save her own skin, such as her decision to bow out of the fight in the Ministry the second Dumbledore arrives. She is laughing and jeering and taunting her adversary right up to her death.
