The objective of the research was to study and understand the link between creativity and madness through the technique of thematic analysis. The subject of the research was ‘Lord Voldemort’, a fictional character featuring in the Harry Potter book series by J. K .Rowling, as the arch nemesis of the protagonist, a young boy named Harry Potter. Lord Voldemort was named as Tom Marvolo Riddle Junior by his mother, and the magical community out of fear calls him He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, the Dark Lord, and You-Know-Who.
Voldemort was born to his witch mother, Merope Gaunt and muggle father Tom Riddle Senior. He was raised in an orphanage, after his father left his pregnant mother and his mother died in childbirth. He caused many problems with the other children because of his ability to use magic, until the age of 11 when Professor Dumbledore came to offer him a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a very bright child and thrived at his new school, earning respect from teachers and finding the many secrets of the castle, though never truly having friends. At around the age of 15 he began to focus on his new goals: to become the most powerful wizard of all time, to kill or remove all muggle-borns from the wizarding society, and to become immortal. He changed his name to Lord Voldemort and set out to make 7 Horcruxes, each housing a small part of his soul. After leaving school he began recruiting followers and later became the most feared wizard of all time.
