His personal relationships with his old school rivals has also changed from antagonistic to being civil and tolerating. He was more than willing to team up with Harry, Ron and Hermione to save both Albus and Scorpius and worked with them effectively to dispatch Delphini , despite her being the daughter of Voldemort and his aunt Bellatrix. This defiance of Delphini showed that even having the Dark Lord's daughter being a blood relative was a repugnant notion to Draco, wanting little to do with his Death Eater past. By this time, Draco also began referring to Voldemort by his name rather than the "Dark Lord" as he did in his youth due to his self-redemption.
He had came to trust the luck and instincts of both Harry and Hermione, taking the orders of the Minister For Magic without hesitation, even expressing he was impressed with her battle commands, albeit in a mildly amused manner, acknowledging Harry was always ready to solve the thickest of situations, and he even went as far as to confess to Harry that he never truly craved power like his father and that his ambition was actually to become a star Quidditch player, but he wasn't good enough, and mainly he just wanted to be happy along with the truth of Astoria's death,  and his envy Harry's friendships, as he only ever had Crabbe and Goyle, outright acknowledging Harry as a friend and showing respect for him, which was mutually returned by Harry.
Draco was a talented wizard from a young age and possessed several impressive magical abilities. His wand was made of hawthorn , which one should only ever consider placing in the hands of a witch or wizard of proven talent. Following his training from his aunt Bellatrix Lestrange , Draco grew to be an accomplished wizard for his age.
Draco attending a first year Potions class. Snake casting the Snake Summons Spell in Draco's hawthorn wand. Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy both spoiled their only child. In , Narcissa sent packages of sweets daily to her son. In , Lucius bought broomsticks for the entire Slytherin Quidditch team when Draco was made Seeker , and Narcissa often sent care packages to her son. She also refused to send Draco abroad to Durmstrang Institute , as Lucius originally wanted, insisting he stay closer to home by attending Hogwarts , despite Lucius's desire to keep Draco away from the influence of Muggle-borns in Hogwarts and also because Durmstrang Institute was known to teach dark arts rather than just the defences which was why Lucius Malfoy had wanted Draco a place in that school, but, finally fulfilling Narcissa's wish for him to study somewhere not too far from home.
Lucius was colder and more demanding than his wife, criticising his son for getting lower school marks than Hermione Granger who was Muggle-born. Despite this, Draco greatly admired his father, often boasting about his influence and striving to be like him.

Narcissa Malfoy , his mother. It became clear during the Second Wizarding War that the Malfoys cared about one another more than they cared for following Lord Voldemort. Draco carried out the task he was assigned by Voldemort in his sixth year because his parents' lives were threatened, and appeared to be close to accepting Dumbledore 's offer to keep them safe before Severus Snape interceded to kill the Headmaster. Narcissa went so far as to lie directly to Voldemort about Harry Potter being dead, in order to be allowed to return to Hogwarts and search for Draco, which also follows the saying that Harry Potter had been saved by a mother's love more than once.
Like his parents, Draco possesses the formidable skill of duelling , Occlumency , and the Cruciatus and Imperius Curses and is smart, quick and a smart retorter. After the war, however, Draco's relationship with his parents may have somewhat faltered, as his marriage with Astoria led them to think she is a somewhat disappointing daughter-in-law, mainly because Astoria's change of belief after the atrocities brought by Death Eaters' ideology, something they find unfitting for a fellow member of one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight clans.
Draco himself has lost his bigotry for less-than-pure wizards, and his willingness to let the Malfoy bloodline end at himself in order to preserve Astoria's health due to her blood-bourne curse earned Lucius' dislike. Regardless, he did not lose favour of his parents, as he inherited the Malfoy Manor and Lucius' collection of artefacts which included the "true" Time-Turner that proved instrumental later.
Draco with his wife and son. Sometime after the end of the war, Draco married Astoria Greengrass , whose older sister was in the same year as him at Hogwarts. They eventually had a son named Scorpius. Draco and his wife evidently loved and cared for their son, raising him to be a better person than himself, proven when Scorpius has a crush on Rose Granger-Weasley daughter of Draco's former rivals and is best friend of Albus Potter youngest child of Draco's former arch-rival.
He and his wife considered the day their son was born the best day of their lives. Astoria's death has caused Draco to be heartbroken, and he even considered using the illegal "true" Time-Turner he received from his father as a means to see her again, though he barely resisted the urge. Draco would have gladly let the Malfoy family line end with him if it were to preserve Astoria's health, disregarding Lucius' wishes, but Astoria did want to leave behind someone for her husband, not for the sake of family beliefs.
Draco certainly raised Scorpius more strictly than how Lucius and Narcissa raised him, as when Scorpius was to be punished by Minerva McGonagall for utilising the Time-Turner to corrupt reality to the point of reviving Voldemort, Draco stated he was prepared to listen to how his son is to be punished.

Bellatrix Lestrange , his maternal aunt. When Draco was younger he didn't have much contact with his aunt because she was imprisoned in Azkaban for torturing the Aurors Alice and Frank Longbottom , who were the parents of Neville Longbottom, a fellow Gryffindor in Draco's year, into insanity.
However, Draco did not feel any shame in his aunt's crimes against the wizarding world law that many would label as disgraceful. After Bellatrix escaped in Draco's fifth year at Hogwarts, she fought in a battle against Harry Potter and his friends and was the only Death Eater who wasn't captured; Draco's father, who had also fought, was imprisoned.
After Draco was given a mission as a Death Eater, Bellatrix helped him and taught him Occlumency , nonverbal spells, and the Dark Arts. She also thought that Narcissa should be proud that her son became a Death Eater. It is unknown how Draco reacted to her death, but it is likely he may have felt sadness as Bellatrix seemed to have some affection with Draco.
However, given that Draco and his family regretted their allegiance with Voldemort, and that Draco abandoned his prejudice against non-pure bloods after the war, it is possible his opinion on Bellatrix changed considerably as she was fanatically loyal to, and obsessively in love with, Voldemort. Also, despite Delphini being Bellatrix's daughter, Draco did not hesitate to assist in her arrest after she had threatened his son's life. Nymphadora Tonks , his maternal first cousin. Draco was not close to his aunt Andromeda Tonks , who had been disowned for marrying Muggle-born Ted Tonks , or their daughter, his cousin Nymphadora.
Like much of the rest of his family, Draco likely held these relatives in contempt; Andromeda was considered a blood traitor and Tonks was a half-blood. Since Draco was too scared of Voldemort to respond his feelings on the subject are unknown. Tonks refereed to him as " The Malfoy boy " indicating she either did not know his name or despised him too much to care. Neither so much as mentioned their relation to one another. Similarly, Draco was indifferent to his first cousin once removed, Sirius Black.
Sirius Black , his maternal first cousin, once removed. His cousin, the illegitimate child of Bellatrix Lestrange , his aunt, and Tom Riddle , his former leader, was Delphini , whom he helped Harry Potter fight in the year , after discovering she was Voldemort's daughter, and after she tried to kill his son Scorpius. He did not have any love for Delphi, as he assisted arresting her for the murder of Craig Bowker Jr. Crabbe and Goyle were often involved in Draco's confrontations with Harry Potter and his friends.
Though Draco often made it clear that he considered both of them rather stupid — a legitimate claim — and treated them more like lackeys than friends  , he showed genuine concern for them and the rest of his gang on a few occasions; when Goyle was bitten by Scabbers the Rat, Draco waited for Goyle before leaving, and he also showed concern for Goyle when he was hit by Harry's Curse, when Dumbledore expressed his disgust with Draco for allowing Fenrir Greyback "into the school where his friends live," Draco denied knowing he would be there, clearly disturbed by the sadistic werewolf 's unexpected presence.
Draco's abrupt departure from his criminal activities left Crabbe and Goyle looking oddly lonely to Harry, as Harry was used to seeing Draco in between the two hulking boys, bossing them around. By the final confrontation between Draco and Harry in the Room of Requirement , during the Battle of Hogwarts , Draco no longer exerted much control over his friends; Crabbe, in particular, responded harshly to Draco's attempts to prevent them from killing Harry. Draco tried desperately to save both of his friends from the cursed fire Crabbe unleashed, helping pull Goyle onto Ron and Hermione's broom before letting Harry fly the two of them out, and was very upset by Crabbe's death.
Although it was Ron and Hermione who saved Goyle from falling into the fire, if it wasn't for Draco who dragged Goyle to safety, Ron and Hermione would never had saved Goyle, so it can be considered that Draco saved Goyle's life. In , an adult Draco admitted to Harry and his wife that his relationship with Crabbe and Goyle could never really have been called friendship, as they had little in common except the prejudices they had inherited from their families, and Crabbe and Goyle were far too stupid to be reliable cohorts in anything.
Draco also admitted that he had always envied Harry's close friendship with Ron and Hermione, in stark contrast to the emptiness of his relationship with his two "best friends" at Hogwarts.
Pansy Parkinson , his friend whom had a crush on him. She often fawned over him, laughing loudly at his snide jokes, showing great concern when Draco was injured by Buckbeak in their third year  , and accompanying him to the Yule Ball in .

Cambias Goodreads Author , R. Sean Borgstrom 3. I really like this book. Cherryh's Foreigner series. It was n I really like this book. It was not quite the book I was expecting, but the book I was expecting was a lot lighter on the witty quips and outright funny bits that I read to my spouse and offspring from time to time. Anyway, if you like any of the above books -- and especially if your tastes include all of them -- then you'll probably like this one as well.
Perhaps that is a little too cryptic. Minor spoilers ahead. There is a large empire. There is a fairly small space colony. The colony doesn't want to be fully and formally absorbed into the empire, but has no way to resist its might -- except, well, diplomacy. Fangirl-of-the-Teixcalaanli-Empire Mahit is the second Ambassador from the space colony.
Their first Ambassador? Well, he's apparently not the one they want, since they bade the colony produce a second one. Is it a spoiler to note that view spoiler [the first Ambassador is non-functional? Probably not much of one. Worse, the shock of the discovery detaches Mahit from her newly-installed imago -- the years-out-of-date-but-better-than-nothing memories of the prior Ambassador.
