Draco Malfoy is a fictional character from the Harry Potter series written by J. K. Rowling. In the Harry Potter movies, he is played by Tom Felton. He is an antagonist. He is a Slytherin student in Harry Potter's year who is Harry's main rival in school.
He is described as having a pale, pointed face, sleek white-blond hair and light gray eyes that seem cold. He is shown to be a bully who manipulates his victims by taunting them and using his magical skills. He is followed almost everywhere by his two friends, Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle, who act as his bodyguards.
He is the only child of Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy, who spoiled him in his childhood. In the sixth book, he becomes a Death Eater. Voldemort asks Malfoy to murder Professor Dumbledore, but he is unable to. Malfoy becomes the master of the Elder Wand (a powerful wand) from the death of Dumbledore to when he is disarmed by Harry Potter in the seventh book. Harry could have also nearly killed him twice, but decided to spare his life.
