From one of the best families (at least in his mind), Lucius Malfoy sees to it that the students of Hogwarts understand the blessing he is. Lucius is the king of politics inside of Hogwarts. He knows how to put on a show, and would rather sit behind someone powerful on the throne than be on it himself. That way, he has power but none of the responsibility. Lucius would rather wait for the most advantageous moment to strike, rather than the most immediate one.
Now that Lucius is in his seventh and final year at Hogwarts, Lucius is planning to cash in on the connections he has formed within the halls of Hogwarts. His is a name you will undoubtedly hear for years to come. Just ask, he’ll tell you himself.
