Hi friends,

It just occured to me. Can somebody please clarify?

Tom Riddle was an extremely handsome young boy but Voldemort has been described as "Snakelike with scarlet eyes and slits for pupils". How this transformation came about and does this have any links with the recent findings of Harry and Dumbledore?(Like the things they were searching for)

Yeah Ronit13's got the jist of it... I'm not sure, but in the book, when Harry saw him excited, happy, he made a point to think that Tom didn't look more handsome (as would a person when he's happy), but rather uglier - more sinister. I don't think Horcruxes have anything to do with his change of appearance (it's Horcruxes you were talking about, right?)... or maybe. But I don't think so. You never know, though. Anyway the point I'm trying to make is as Voldemort got more sinister, so did his appearance. I hope you get me.

i seem to remember vaguely something about how as voldemort kept splitting his soul, he became more inhuman, and hence, his appearance must have reflected this, i suppose...

meaning the horcruxes had a role in his appearance but i doubt that there was a major connection that could give us clues..its just that fact that the soul-splitting made hiim inhuman

I do agree with Delia

It is due to horcruxes (soul-splitting) that he looked uglier...
