Viktor Krum, played by Stanislav Ianevski in the Goblet of Fire
|Affiliation||Durmstring Institute, Goblet of Fire, Bulgarian National Quidditch Team|
|Blood||Pure-blood or Half-blood|
|Also known as||N/A|
Viktor Krum first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He is the Seeker for Bulgaria’s Quidditch team, and plays for them at the match between Ireland and Bulgaria at the Quidditch World Cup. He catches the snitch in an attempt to keep some dignity and honour, but Ireland wins the match due to scoring more goals.
When not being an international Quidditch star, Viktor Krum is a student at Durmstrang, one of the schools competing in the Triwizard Tournament. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, he is chosen to participate in the Triwizard Tournament as Champion for his school. During his time around the Hogwarts castle, Viktor takes a secret liking to Hermione Granger, and ends up asking her to the Yule Ball, which angers Ron Weasley. Viktor further displays his affections for Hermione when she is taken underwater by the Merpeople to be the lost thing he desired most.
It is not all good sailing for Viktor, however. During the third and final task, he ends up being cursed and controlled by Barty Crouch Jr, attacking the two other champions, Fleur Delacour and Cedric Diggory, in an attempt to help Harry Potter safely reach the Triwizard Cup.
Viktor makes a second and final appearance in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He receives an invitation to Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour’s wedding from Fleur, much to the surprise and disappointment of Ron. He becomes agitated, however, when he spots a symbol that Xenophilius Lovegood is wearing around his neck, and claims it to be Grindelwald's symbol, when in actual fact it is the symbol of the Deathly Hallows. He states that his disgust with it is the attachment of it to the Dark Arts and after the wedding, we do not see Viktor again.
