Merope Gaunt, (c. 1907 – 31 December, 1926) was a pure-blood witch, daughter of Marvolo Gaunt, & sister of Morfin. She was a direct descendant of Salazar Slytherin and a Parselmouth. Merope lived in a shack with her father & brother, who mentally & physically abused her. She grew to have an obsessive love for Tom Riddle, a handsome, wealthy Muggle. When both her father & brother were imprisoned, she bewitched & married Tom. Merope ended up dying at an orphanage, soon after bearing their son.
Merope Riddle (née Gaunt) - "Her hair was lank and dull and she had a plain, pale, rather heavy face. Her eyes, like her brother's, stared in opposite directions. She looked a little cleaner than the two men, but Harry thought he had never seen a more defeated-looking person." •••••• Kristen Stewart as Merope Riddle
