Blaise Zabini Biography

Blaise Zabini was the son of a famously beautiful witch who had been widowed seven times by 1996. All of her husbands died in suspicious circumstances, suggesting that she might be a black widow.

The only man that the beautiful witch kept around was her son Blaise, who inherited her good looks. However, he was also very vain and raised to believe in ideas of blood supremacy.

Blaise started to attend Hogwarts in 1991 and was sorted into Slytherin. While he was friendly with the fellow Slytherins in his year, including Draco Malfoy, he was not a part of their gang. While he seems to have looked down on other students, he did not join in their bullying.

Blaise Zabini and the Slug Club

In his sixth year, Blaise was one of the students invited by Professor Horace Slughorn to be part of the Slug Club, mostly due to his mother’s infamous beauty. This suggests that Blaise’s family were not associated with the Death Eaters, as Slughorn excluded other students in that year (such as Theodore Nott) on this basis.

When invited to Slug Club events Blaise talked about his mother’s various husbands and how they had all left her significant fortunes in their wills. He scoffed when Slughorn suggested that Harry Potter had powers beyond the normal. This earned him the ire of Ginny Weasley.

When Pansy Parkinson asked Blaise whether he was one of the many boys at school that considered Ginny to be attractive, Blaise commented that he would not touch a blood traitor like Ginny no matter how good-looking she was. This comment reveals much about Zabini’s upbringing and snobbery.

Blaise was clearly a smart and talented student. He must have achieved at least a Exceeds Expectation in his Potions O.W.L. as he was one of the few students who was able to continue the subject at N.E.W.T. level. He also played Chaser on the Slytherin Quidditch team.

Zabini would have returned to Hogwarts in his seventh year when the school was under Death Eater control. Although Blaise does not seem to have been from a Death Eater family, his pure-blood and famous mother probably meant that he was not treated badly under the new regime.

He would have been evacuated from the school with the other members of Slytherin when the Battle of Hogwarts began. It is unknown what he went on to do in later life.

Blaise Zabini in the Movies

While in the books Blaise’s story ends here, in the movies, Blaise replaces Vincent Crabbe in the showdown in the Room of Requirement between Draco Malfoy and his Slytherin goons and Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley.

This is because the actor who played Vincent Crabbe was cut from the final film.

So, in the film’s version of events, Blaise sneaks back into the school with Draco Malfoy and Gregory Goyle to try and capture Harry Potter and hand him over to Lord Voldemort.

They fight in the Room of Requirement, which Goyle destroys with an uncontrolled Fiendfyre spell. While Harry and his friends save Draco and Balise from the fire, Goyle is killed in the blaze.

Blaise Zabini Personality Type & Traits

Blaise Zabini clearly has a high opinion of himself and had a tendency to look down on other people as lesser than him. While this applied to Muggle-born wizards, it seems to have applied to almost everyone. He even shows contempt for Draco Malfoy during their conversations.

Blaise Zabini Zodiac Sign & Birthday

Blaise must have been born in 1979/80, but his birth date is unknown. His personality suggests that his zodiac sign could be Aquarius. People born under this sign tend to be extremely self-aware and have natural self-belief. This is so strong that they can have a tendency to look down on other people.
