We can push it off on the kids. Yeah, that's what we'll do. We'll say Alecto was ambushed by the kids, them kids up there, and we'll say they forced her to press her Mark, and that's why he got a false alarm... He can punish them. Couple of kids more or less, what's the difference?
~ Amycus Carrow displaying his selfishness and cowardice.

Amycus Carrow is a minor antagonist in the Harry Potter universe. He was a member of the Death Eaters led by Lord Voldemort.

He was portrayed by actor Ralph Ineson.


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Amycus Carrow first appears in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, where he participates in the plot to assassinate Albus Dumbledore.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

After Voldemort's takeover of the Ministry of Magic, Amycus Carrow was appointed as the new Defense against the Dark Arts teacher, which at the time was changed to "Dark Arts." He forced students to use the Cruciatus Curse to torture any dissidents against Voldemort's regime.


Amycus was extremely sadistic, deriving pleasure in torturing the students of Hogwarts, to the extent that Neville Longbottom even described him as worse than Dolores Umbridge. Amycus also displayed great cowardice in the face of failure; when Alecto Carrow was stunned by Harry, Amycus planned to blame the students for her defeat in the hopes of the students being punished and not himself. When Professor Minerva McGonagall protested, Amycus spat in her face, an act which enraged Harry so much that the latter used the Cruciatus Curse on him, with enough potency to toss him into the air screaming. His behavior towards Minerva demonstrates his obscene lack of respect for people.
