Default Narcissa Malfoy - mean or nice?
♥ Slytherin Princess to the core ♥ / St. Trinian's Terror

Throught the books Narcissa isn't really definded if she follows in the footsteps of Lucius and Muggle hating (or maybe i didn't notice)

in the 6th book she is more concerned with Draco's saftey than him compleating the task set, even though Bellatrix thinks she should allow her son to die if needs be.

what do you think Narcissa Malfoy is Mean or Nice?

Narcissa was certainly snobby and elitist like her husband. And shared his disdain for Harry, Dumbledore, non pure-bloods, "mudbloods" (guh) and muggles. We see this best when she is in Diagon Alley, in Madam Malkins. But there are several glimpses throughout the books. I think she was certainly prejudice and held herself higher than most people.

However, I also do truly believe that she was a very loving and protective mother. Draco was a mummy's boy.

Hmm Narcissa was certainly an elitist, but then again she was brought up to believe those things and we never really are told why mudbloods are looked down upon but for all we know there could be a very good reason for it, well good reason to the purebloods at least.

However we do see that she cares greatly for her family, she is extremely protective of Draco and the first thing she asked Harry in DH was if her son was okay. This shows me that she is a loving person to those that are close to her, and that she is indifferent to those that have done nothing to impress her, I think that she like Lucius was a good parent. Yes I think that Lucius was a good parent.

Narcissa is protective over Draco in DH just as he was over her, but i just didn't see her as a muggle hater,

yes she was snobby and might have looked down her nose at some of the other wizards and witches but does JK Rowling ever have her mention that she is a muggle hater?

and i have to dissagree with you there Aimee i don't think that Lucius was a good father he was too concerned for Voldemort for Narcissa or Draco.

is she nice in that sense? (non muggle hater?)

Okay obviously I agree with Jo on that, however I stand by thinking that Lucius was a good father. He was worried about Draco at the end of DH and in the hall all of them were acting as a family, besides you never saw Lucius being outright abusive, there was never any mention of him actually abusing Draco, just of him being strict and by the way Draco acted and talked about his father it didn't seem as if he was a bad father and Draco seemed unhappy that Lucius was in Azkaban as if he missed his father. I think that when Draco was younger he would have been well taken care of by both his parents, Lucius didn't seem all too obsessed with getting Voldemort back did he? I think once Voldie was back at first things may have changed and in public he may have been cold towards his son however I believe in private the Malfoys were a different family. As if they could act how they wanted without public scrutiny.

However this is just my opinion.

Well, she's not as mean as some characters and all her snobby, elitist ideas would have been drummed into her at a young age. She clearly cares about Draco and Lucius, but mean people can love too.

I don't think she's completely mean, just stuck in a situation that calls for a mean exterior.

I don't think she's mean, nor do I think she's nice. She obviously cares a LOT for her son as you find out in the 7th book, and she's kinda snobby but I wouldn't consider it mean. Yeah, she kinda thinks she's better than you, but never did she do many "bad" things.

Someone's peacemaker is someone else's enemy.
It depends on the eye of the beholder, hm?

To some, Narcissa may have been overly nice, pampering her son and protecting him in so many different ways. She also recognized when to put herself aside, like in DH, that she did not say the truth about Harry being dead, and she does go out of her way to protect him. To Draco, she's nice.

But you think of all those people she's put down, and her opinion of a lower class or caste, of the people who just see her as being married to one very evil, evil man, and they think she's mean.

You can't be one or the other, in my opinion. She's a devoted mother, which is certainly a high plus on her side, but she has glitches she needs to sort out before being considered an utterly nice character. I don't think she's utterly mean either, she's just, like everyone, committed certain lapses in judgement.

I think that Narcissa has a mixed personality. nI think that she IS cruel but that she has a limit and that her heart is not so dead like voldemorts that she doesnot care and love for her family. Ithink she showed a softer side of herself in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows(the seventh and last book)when she showed how she would risk herown safety to protect her son(Malfoy). She showed this when she risked her life by lying to voldemort about Harry being alive to make sure that Malfoy was safe inside the castle

Exactly what I was going to say. I don't think Narcissa ever intended to be as mixed up with the whole Death Eaters business as her husband and son. All that seemed to matter to her was the safety of her family.

She is a confusing character, she can certainly be mean and snobby liker her husband and son. She really doesn't want to be a death eater, and she isn't. She just follows her husband. And she showed that she is caring because of her devotion to Draco, and by lying to Voldemort; saying Harry was dead. If she had the choice to follow Voldemort, or to live a normal familt life; she would most likely choose the family life. I think she is mean, to others who aren't of her blood status, but she isn't really, extremely mean; and certainly not evil.

I dont think she was nice or mean. Once we got a better view into her character, it seemed that her main concern was the safety of her son and husband. At certain points in the story, it seemed that she really could have cared less which side won.
In DH she went along with Harry faking his death so she could get back into the castle to make sure Draco was safe.
But does this make her nice? No I dont think so, but is she mean? Not really.
Its a pretty tough call.

I think that she's more concerned about her families safety...but would that necessarily make her mean if she'll do anything to get her family out of trouble? No. But does it make her nice? Not necessarily. Of course you have to remember that she allowed Bellatrix, her sister, hurt many innocent people.

In my opinion, she isn't necessarily mean or nice, she follows in the footsteps of whomever she's with at the time.

In my opinion, Narcissa didn't start out as a mean person but based on what she was taught to believe at home had told her that it was the way that everyone was supposed to act. I think that if she were raised in a different home, then she most likely wouldn't have been so mean but what are you going to do? You can't erase a person's past.

I don't think Nacissa is a bad person but she ins't an angel either. I think she stands behind her husband, but when it comes to her baby boy, she wants to protect him with everything she's worth. I believe she's just a scared mother that will do anything to make sure her family stays together.

I think that Narcissa was snobby, racist and unpleasant like her husband and son, but she was not evil. I think she doesn't set out to be evil, or good, she just wants to protect her son. She threatened Harry when Harry pointed his wand at Draco, which makes it look like she'd only be hostile if she needed to protect her son.

Like most of the posts in here, I think Narcissa was a morally bad person in that she was elitist, snobby, and quite unpleasant to be around.
However, when it came to mothering, though she may not teach her son in a morally correct fashion, she'll certainly do anything to make sure Draco stays safe. That alone makes her an excellent mother.

Nice. I think she's just a product of how she was brought up. Not that would give her an excuse to act any certain way, but the way parents bring up their children affect the way they turn out.

I agree with pottergrl5. if she hadnt been brought up the way she had been, so privileged and meant to believe she and every other pureblood was above the rest of the wizarding community then she could have turned out nice.
However i do think that at her core she just wants a family and that really shows in Deathly Hallows when she and her husband betray Voldmort to look for Draco.

i aggree with a lot of people that she is snobby, unpleasent, and racist (of couse isn't every dark pureblood?) but being a mother she is great at. that's the only light i see in her though.

and can i just say that in HBP they made her look really old. she should've looked like lucius except a female version

Narcissa is not mean, but she is very snobby like her husband who dislikes muggles and poor people like Weasly's family. Narcissa is definetely a good mother, she is very protective of her son Draco, and she was begging Snape for protection of Draco in Hogwarts. I can see that she is willing to do anything for her son to be alive and great.

i think she is just prejudice against muggleborns and muggles i think shes only supprting voldemort out of fear just like draco because if she really supported voldemort she would be more like bellatrix who would do anything for voldemort

I believe that Narcissa is a normal human being who was raised to elitist beliefs. As Sirius states, no being is all good or bad--but are instead a mixture of the two. Narcissa does what is best for herself and her family. She believes that muggle-borns are of lower class, but does not bear the dark mark. When her son is in danger of death, she defies 'her master' (although she is not a death eater...or I'm not aware that she's a death eater) by asking Snape to keep him safe. She again defies her master saving Harry's life. I do not believe she saved Harry's life because she felt any sort of pitty for him. No, because as it states in the book she knew the only way to see her Draco was to go back to the castle and fight--which would only happen if Harry was indeed dead. I believe she also knew that if she risked Harry's life again by saying he was alive--her family would suffer a consiquence in the long run. Her family was already in peril. It was just a matter of time before the Dark Lord killed off her family.

I think Narcissa just cares for her family the most, and to bloody hell with the rest.
So there is no definition to whether she is mean or nice, she is just she, and she is a mother.
