Antioch in song, story & screen: | Edit

Antioch Peverell, in the last of the Harry Potter books, was the eldest in the "Tale of the Three Brothers". When he and his brothers Cadmus and Antioch met Death whilst crossing a bridge and were offered rewards for evading him, Antioch requested the unbeatable elder wand that Voldemort later steals. Unfortunately, Antioch was not the brightest bulb in the pack, and so he bragged about his new power to anyone that would listen. That night the wand was stolen for the first time, Antioch's throat was slit, and the first of the three brothers met Death for the second time.
