They were an old family, dating back to the sixth century of France, Lestrange (La-strawnge), the strange one, strange they are. While they were noble pure bloods that believed in blood supremacy, were one of the wealthiest Wizarding families in Europe, they were stranger…they were not the Malfoys who were clean, never getting their hands dirty and all about appearances the Lestrange’s cared not for any of that, they dressed well and had lavish living but they preferred strength over appearance, and they were famous for being mentally unstable, usually sadists and rumour has it that every Lestrange estate has a torture chamber and they enjoy it, it arouses them.
Adelard (Ah-day-lahr) Clotaire Lestrange was born in Calais and was the first Lestrange to leave France, he moved to Falmouth, a coastal wizarding village in West Country and on a hill he had built a lavish estate almost as large as his family’s castle, hidden by trees and it had a moat and a bridge, it was named Maison de la Mort which translate’s to Death’s House, a dark place and as tradition goes he build a torture chamber and a dungeon.
Adelard had met a pure-blood woman by the name of Edith Yaxley, they married for Adelard found her beautiful, behaves the way a woman should and comes from the right family (high status, pure-blooded, and shared his beliefs), she was a virgin as well and well Edith had fallen for Adelard because well any woman that wasn’t a French woman wants a French man, and well Adelard also came from an affluent background.
Families approved (Even though Adelard’s were a little put off that she was English, but when they saw how perfect she was they couldn’t resist) and almost right away she was pregnant and her status of his wife and her remaining in his favor was secured when she gave birth to a suitable heir, making her husband’s dreams and ambitions come true, fulfilling the duty of a pure-blood wife, she bore him a son. Rodolphus Adelard Lestrange, Adelard’s pride and joy and Edith’s little heart, and while he was spoiled like Abraxas and Evelyn Malfoy’s (their friends) son Lucius, Adelard raised his son not to be prissy, no Rodolphus was tough from the beginning, and wasn’t afraid of anything when he had a boo boo he did not cry just went to the house elf and demanded they fixed it. Next Adelard’s wife provided him with another joy, a second son, Rabastan Yaxley Lestrange, he was closer to his mother but still stronger than Lucius.
Rodolphus currently is a seventh year his last year, a beater on the slytherin team, best friend to Lucius Malfoy and fiance to Bellatrix Black, and Merlin she’s perfect, at least to Rodolphus or at least that’s what he used to think.
They were betrothed at five and Rodolphus fell in love for Bellatrix is breath taking with her wild dark hair, her wild yet impressionable eyes, pouty lips, a heart-shaped face and a shapely body, Rodolphus was enthralled by her cackling and captivated by what they share in common; sociopathic tendencies. Bellatrix and Rodolphus liked to hurt people, they liked to watch people bleed thye found it funny when people begged for their lives and boring when they didn’t, Bellatrix was the oddest daughter of Cygnus and Druella Black, there was a screw loose and they were afraid a man would never marry their untamed daughter for she will never bow down to any man and marches to the beat of her own drum, she is nothing like the youngest, the angelic Narcissa who was the perfect little pure-blood princess, follows the rules, doesn’t get in the way, attends meetings with the ladies, loves tea time, delicate, soft spoken, well-mannered, and so beautiful, it was no wonder Lucius Malfoy had requested her to be his future bride, he did not understand what his friend saw in such a wild woman.
But Rodolphus was hooked and the sex was amazing, they’d both be left panting and covered in blood (not knowing which one it was), neither had limits but there was something missing…she didn’t love him, she tolerated him, used him, and if he dared to be possessive she’d threaten to crucio him and with Beautiful Bella she meant it. He grew to both hate and love her, she broke his heart everyday like it was a daily routine and he ran back for more, it was horrible and it made him crazier, Lucius did not like what the hell fury was doing to his best friend that he looked at like a brother and had asked his dear Cissy if she could talk to her sister, after all the only person Bellatrix ACTUALLY cared about was Narcissa Black her baby sister that she was overprotective with, but Bella laughed it off because she knew Rodolphus would NEVER leave her and NEVER love another.
