Default Barty Crouch Jr: Evil or not?

What do you think? Is BCJ truly evil or was he a good person at heart who only strove for acceptance, whose imprisonment in Azkaban and his father's apparent indifference towards him were the factors that drove him to evil?

IMO, he was misled as he fell into the wrong company as was mentioned in the books. Had Barty Jnr. had enough love and attention from Snr, this was less likely to happen. It was a chain reaction of sorts, a very sad one.

Glad you think so too. You're one of three people I know that does, myself included.

It is true that his father didn't make anything better.
But it was Barty's own choice to join the Death Eaters and commit his crimes.

^ I totally agree with you on this!

I'm not sure it's fair to necessarily write someone off as 'evil', but as it stands, Barty Crouch Junior has free will. He's capable of making his own decisions and he is the one who chose to join the Death Eaters - as far as I'm aware, no one forced him to do any of what he did. Circumstances might have led him to these choices, but ultimately, the choices were his to make.

Yeah, I think Barty Crouch Jr was driven away by a father who didn't know how to love him. Classic. And utterly tragic. That lack of love caused the deaths of many.
