Acknowledgments - Herpo the Foul

Chapter 8
In inspiration, Herpo the Foul is one of the earliest known Dark Wizards and his work is still a lasting aspect of dark magic to date. He is best known as the first wizard to hatch a Basilisk. He is reputed to have invented many vilecursesand was also the first wizard known to successfully create a Horcrux, perhaps having designed the ritual himself. Accordingly, he must have committed murder to split his soul. He is one of the earliest known Parselmouths as well. Herpo the Foul was also a

Basilisk breeder: First wizard to have discovered that hatching a chickeneggunder a toad will create the King of Serpents. He managed to control it with Parseltongue, thus initiating one of the few cases of a wizard “domesticating” a XXXXX-class creature known wizard-killer that cannot be tamed.
