Quirinus Quirrell is the son of Aenim, and Vaelria Quirrell making him a member of House Quirrell.
Quirinus Quirrell would come under the sway of Tom Malfoy while he was a professor at Hogwarts and during this time his failure to advance to a higher position bred resentment of which targeted specifically Albus Dumbledore and thus he was easy picking for Tom Malfoy to turn to his side. Quirinus Quirrell would become so corrupted in the teachings of the Dark Magi of Tom Malfoy that he dabbled to show his loyalty by cursing himself to be able to possessed by Tom himself and thus whenever Tom wanted he could gain physical control of Quirinus Quirrell something that would come back to haunt him later. Quirinus would attempt to gain the Philosopher's stone from Harry Potter, but would be struck down wounding Tom Malfoy who had be controlling part of him during the fight and with the curse expanding due to two minds in the same body Quirinus would burn out from within dying as perhaps the first victim of the Hogwarts Civil War.

| The Philosophers Stone |
Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, and Ron Weezly were not always the the Triumverate that they would become and in the the beginning it took many close encounters for the three to finally become as close as they have. They would first meet on the train ride from the capital where the students of Hogwarts would first prepare for their departure, and it was on this train ride that the dynamics of the beginning of the group would begin. Harry Potter arrives at the carriage station where joined by his family he prepares to board the Hogwarts carriage train which is a massive carriage which takes the children who are enrolling in Hogwarts and surrounded by his family he sheds a tear as his mother gives him a kiss on the cheek before he enters the carriage. Entering the carriage alongside his cousin Sybill Potter of whom is the same age as he is the two hold hands as they find their seat, but as they are walking down the aisle Sybill is taken away by several young girls of whom knew her from the church and the two say goodbye as Harry finds an empty booth to sit at.While Ron, and Harry started off as friends and Harry was always polite to Hermione there was an almost bitterness between Ron and Hermione due to Rons behavior which was caused by him finding many things difficult due to his lack of natural intelligence on their level. Hermione Granger attached herself to Harry and Ron, following them around and trying to prevent them from breaking school rules and getting into trouble.The friendship between the three was solidified when, on Halloween during their first year, the three were forced to confront a mountain troll, that had been set loose in Hogwarts in the earliest attempt on Harry's life. Unaware that a troll was on the loose in the school, Hermione had spent that day crying in the girls' bathroom after overhearing Ron making unkind comments about her. The troll made its way into the bathroom she was in, and Harry and Ron came to her rescue, and proseeded to fight the Troll. None of the three had any experiance fighting anything of that magnitude so the fight was extremely chaotic with the Troll nearly killing the group several times, but their quick thinking kept them alive. As the fight looked to be going against them Ron was picked up by the Troll who prepared to kill Ron, but before he could Harry stabbed it through the foot with a wooden post, and the Troll fell over from this. With the troll falling on its stomach Harry climbed on its back and shot it behind the head where Hermione screamed to him it had weak armor. With the troll lying dead the group stayed quiet for several minutes as Harry checked on his two friends, and though they didn't know it the Triumverate would be formed by these moments. When Professors Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, and Quirinus Quirrell arrived at the scene, Hermione covered for the boys, claiming she was fighting the troll because she had thought that she could fight one, having read a great deal about them, and that Ron and Harry had merely come to help her escape. From that point on, the three students were best friends.
On one night, she followed them as they were leaving Gryffindor Tower to duel Draco Malfoy. Unknown to Harry and Ron was the fact that Draco was too afraid to challenge them and because of this he had gone to Argus Filch and told him that Harry and Ron were going to the third floor to cause mayhem. When they arrived at the dueling spot they were spotted by Argus Filch of whom demanded to know what they were doing up there and before he could say anything else they bolted away from him and ran upstairs. They were chased by Argus Filch, acting on a tip off by Malfoy, into the third floor corridor — forbidden to students — where they came face-to-face with Fluffy, a three-headed dog belonging to Hagrid. Later on, she argued that her spying was to their benefit when she pointed out the dog had been standing on a trap door, which Harry and Ron had not noticed. After using Magi to cause the dog to fall asleep they moved the god again with Magi before descending into the trap door. After going through the trapdoor, a long drop led to a chamber filled with Devil's Snare, planted by the Herbology teacher, Professor Sprout. The Devil's Snare was designed to entangle and suffocate any intruders, especially quickly the more the intruder attempts to escape. As the Snare is sensitive to heat and light, Hermione used a charm that created a jet of Bluebell flames to free Ron. As they attempted to turn back a Magi wall appeared behind them leading to them having no choice but to go down.
A downward sloping passage led to another chamber filled with flying keys, charmed by Professor Flitwick. A large wooden door led to another chamber. The door would not open with the use of any charm such as Alohomora, one needed the correct key to get through. To pass, one had to use the broomstick provided to catch the correct key. However, once airborne, the other keys will try and attack the pursuer. The group attempted to ride broomsticks which were on the ground in order to reach the keys but they continued to fail at this until finally Harry was able to reach the top of the room and made a death defying jump in order to reach the correct key, and then survived the jump after Hermione slowed his fall with Magi. When the group finally managed to get the key and get into the next room a man in a dark robe appeared in front of them, and while this man throughout the conversation to follow would remain anonymous in truth it was an apparition of Tom Malfoy. When they attempted to raise their wands against him he disarmed the group and proceeded to tell them a story.
The man would proceede to tell them that story before making them perfectly aware of the fact that they were going to die, unless they did what he wanted and got him the stone. The three attempted to resist him, but he was far to powerful in that moment and they were pushed back again. With no hope the three agreed to his demands and told him that they would get him the stone. With this the man would pick up their wands and hand them back to the three before he pushed them through a door and into the next room.
The next chamber was dark and resembled a graveyard, it contained a Human Chess Game, enchanted by Professor McGonagall. To defeat the game, one had to play themselves across the board and checkmate the King according to the rules of Chess. One cannot simply walk across the board and pass, so an adequate knowledge of Wizard's Chess was needed to complete this task. Ron had come to love chess during his time at Hogwarts and was one of the best in the entire school so he was able to defeat the game quite easily, but on the checkmate move he was forced to sacrifice his player and this injured him, and with the entrance to the final room closing in front of them Hermione, and Harry were encouraged by Ron to leave him behind to find his own way out while they went through to the final stage.
The next obstacle guarding the Stone was a logical riddle set by Professor Snape, and entering the room Hermione, and Harry now alone without Ronald are left to enter what they know is the last obstacle to their goal. Before entering the room the two held each other for some a few minutes as Hermione had begun to shake uncontrollably out of fear, and Harry consoled her, and in this moment kissed her on the forehead another moment in the expanding chemistry between the two best friends. Upon entering the chamber, the doorway through which one entered was blocked by a purple flame. The other entry way leading to the Philosopher's Stone, was blocked with black flame. A table with seven bottle of differing shapes sat in the middle of the room. Each bottle contained a liquid, but the bottles were not labelled with their contents. Three were poison, two contained nettle wine, one contained a potion to safely traverse the black flame, and the last contained a potion that allowed passage back through the purple flames. The riddle, when properly worked out, revealed the contents of each bottle, and therefore which one was safe to drink to allow onward progress.
Hermione tells Harry that it is a test of logic and not magic wherein most wizards fail. She solves the puzzle, and at Harry's instruction, drinks the one that will allow her to head back through the purple flame, while Harry drinks the one to head into the black flame and into the final room, where he is surprised at who he sees. As Professor Quirrell presumably traveled through the chamber to reach the Mirror of Erised, he must have had to take the Black Fire Potion himself, and, as there was only enough potion for one person in the bottle, that would have used it all up. However, he may have taken some of the potion with him when he entered the chambers, and drunk that instead. Another possibility is that the bottles had had a Refilling Charm on them.
The final obstacle was the Mirror of Erised, designed and set by Albus Dumbledore and was designed with a major moral shield leading to those with moral failings to basically be unable to succeed at this test. The only way to obtain the stone was to look into the mirror, see yourself having it, but not using it. Most people would see themselves using it, such as turning things to gold, crafting Elixir of Life, or giving it to someone. It was at this moment that the man in the dark robe appeared again and this time he revealed himself as Proffesor Quirrell and told the three that he was unable to get the stone from the mirror, and the only person he believed that could was Harry Potter and it was for this reason that he had Draco Malfoy lure the three of them into the tunnel. Also appearing at this point are several others dressed in dark clothing wearing masks who support Quirrel, and while their identity would remain a mystery the people were in fact Draco Malfoy, Astoria Malfoy, Tobias Grundeven, and Charlotte Painsley of whom were there under orders from the Deatheaters leadership. Quirrell asks for help from his master to get the Stone, and a snake-like voice tells him to use the boy. Harry is told to look into the Mirror. Under threat Harry is forced to look into the mirror. He sees his reflection pull the Stone out of his pocket and put it back in, and Harry feels it drop into his own pocket. He lies to Quirrell about what he sees, telling him instead that he sees himself shaking hands with Dumbledore, after winning the House Cup for Gryffindor. The snake-like voice tells Quirrell Harry is lying and Quirrell takes his turban off to show Harry what lies on the back of his head. As Quirrell turns around, Harry is shocked to see another face where the back of Quirrell's head should be. The face has red eyes and a snake-like slit where the nose should be. Harry realises this is the face of whoever this Lord Voldemort is, and Voldemort demands Harry give him the Stone. Harry refuses and runs, but Quirrell seizes him. However, the contact with Harry's skin burns Quirrell and causes him to have boils all over the area in which Harry touched him. Harry grabs Quirrell's face, then his arm, and holds on, with the blinding pain in his head building, until he feels the arm wrenched away before he blacks out. He awakes in the hospital wing with Dumbledore there, telling him Quirrell did not succeed at getting the Stone, and indeed the Stone has been destroyed.
Conflict with Draco
During his early time in Hogwarts he was consistently approached by one Draco Malfoy who wished for Harry to leave the school. When it became clear that wasn't going to happen the two became bitter rivals and were in near constant conflict with eachother. In the days that came before the Basilisk Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy engaged in a duel which unkown to Harry caused the death of Harnia Trout of House Slytherin.
