Peter Pettigrew, aged 38, was strangled to death by his own silver hand, punishment from he-who-shall-not-be-named for showing weakness in a fight against Harry Potter. The man once known as "Wormtail" (and former pet rat of Hogwarts student Ron Weasley), Pettigrew was directly responsible for the deaths of Lily and James Potter and played a key role in the rebirth of the Dark Lord. Pettigrew has no known relatives.
(Note: Pettigrew's death is depicted in the book, but does not appear in the "DH:P2" film.)
