The Carrow Family were supporters of Lord Voldemort during the First Wizarding War, yet managed to avoid being imprisoned in Azkaban. When the Dark Lord returned, they joined him fighting in the Second Wizarding War.
Amycus participated in the invasion on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry started by Draco Malfoy, which ended up killing Dumbledore. He later ran away with his sister after being hit by spells fired by Harry Potter.
When the Ministry of Magic fell, Amycus was given the job of the new Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor at Hogwarts. He and his sister used punishments for bad children that were not like they were, such as the Cruciatus Curse.
In the final Battle of Hogwarts, Amycus and Alecto were ordered by Lord Voldemort to guard in the Ravenclaw Common room where Harry Potter might visit, later to find that his sister and Harry had gone. He attempted to blame it on the other pupils, and also spat in Professor McGonagall's face. This caused Harry to use the Cruciatus curse on him. He and his sister were both sent to Azkaban after Voldemort's defeat.
We'll say Alecto was ambushed by the kids, them kids up there, and we'll say they forced her to press her Mark, and that's why he got a false alarm.... He can punish them. Couple of kids more or less, what's the difference?- Amycus Carrow attempting to blame a few students.
