The Death Eaters (originally the Knights of Walpurgis) was the name given to the most loyal and high ranking followers of Lord Voldemort. The Death Eaters would become a segment of The Magisterium following the capture of the Tevinter Empire by the forces of the Death Eaters, and while technically below the leadership of the Magisters the Death Eaters increasingly took on prominent positions within the land of Tevinter.

They often wore black hoods and masks with snake-like eye slits to cover their faces. Only the members of the inner circle of the Death Eaters had Dark Marks burned into their left forearms. When Voldemort touched one of them, each of the Death Eaters felt it, signalling for them to Apparate to their leader's side.

The Deatheaters were first formed during the early days of Tom Malfoy's arrival in the Hogwarts School of Magi, and their earliest formation was of members of House Slytherin. The Deatheaters would mobilize under Tom Malfoy as he grew in power, and became the head of House Slytherin, and it was during this time that there influence begin to spread throughout the higher echelons of the Hogwarts leadership which led to a growing power hungry nature to Tom Malfoy of whom was basically only resisted in this by a wide ranging loyalty to the noble Albus Dumbledore.
