Regulus Black is Sirius Black’s younger brother. His full name is Regulus Arcturus Black. He was the favorite son. His house is Slytherin at Hogwarts. Black was a seeker on the Quidditch team. The favorite son believed in the Black family motto, Toujours Pur. Regulus was a believer that the pure-blood wizards are royal. Pure-bloods are to rule everyone. It is this belief that causes him to become a Death Eater.
Sirius Black says according to rumor Regulus became disenchanted with Lord Voldemort. He no longer wanted to be a Death Eater. Lord Voldemort hears of his young brother’s plans to leave. The displeased Dark Lord orders Regulus’ death. The Death Eater's body was ever found.
It is Kreacher who tells the truth. Kreacher is the Black family’s house-elf. Regulus was fond of Kreacher. When Regulus was a Death Eater, Voldemort requests the use of a house-elf. Eager to please his master, Regulus offers the services of Kreacher. The young Death Eater tells Kreacher to accompany the Dark Lord, to do as he is told and to come back.
Kreacher travels with the evil lord. You-Know-Who takes the elf to a cave where they cross a lake. They go to a stone basin. The Dark Lord orders Kreacher to drink the potion in it. He does it. Kreacher’s insides begin to burn and he becomes thirsty. Inferi are in the lake’s water. They will pull the body of anyone or anything who drinks the water. Lord Voldemort places a locket in the basin and refills it with more potions. He refuses to help Kreacher. The evil one laughs and leaves the ailing elf. Kreacher Disapperates to come back.
Kreacher returns to the Black house as ordered by his master, Regulus. Regulus Black learns what transpired in the cave. He is furious. With a second locket, he and the faithful elf return to the stone basin. Instead of ordering Kreacher to drink the portion, Regulus does so himself. The fake locket is substituted for the one inside. Before he dies, he orders Kreacher to go home, never tell anyone what had happened and to destroy the locket. Regulus Black death is by the hands of the Inferi, not by the hand of a Death Eater as commonly believed.
