Thread: The Gaunt Family

  1. #1

    The Gaunt Family

    I'm working on a summer challenge for the Hallows prompt and I need some family background on the Gaunts.

    Morfin or Merope: Who was the eldest child?

    Why were Marvolo and Morfin sent to Azkaban?

    I've been looking for the answers but haven't found anything yet. Perhaps my eyes just glazed over something entirely obvious, in which case I apologize sincerely, but I appreciate the help!

    Hello, Ashley!

    Hello, honey.

    Ahh...the Gaunts are my speciality

    I'm not sure who's the older on from Morfin and Merope, but I'd guess Morfin.

    As for the reason Marvolo and Morfin were sent to Azkaban...*opens HBP*

    This was the first minor offense commited by Morfin. But these are the main ones:

    Hope that helped! *huggles*

    Yay, thank you so much! *huggles*

    I couldn't for the life of me find my copy of HBP (in the 5 minutes I had before I would have been late to work ). You are wonderful and I appreciate your help so much!
