Summary: Rodolphus stops foxing and bluffing and shows that he might be minus an arm but he's not out for the count.
Rodolphus stood on a small rise overlooking Godric’s Hollow. He had his wand in his hand and a tiny smirk on his face. He also looked completely and utterly healthy except for the lack of one arm. He missed his sword and it seemed strange to go into a battle without one but his research into the silver hand Voldemort had given Wormtail was progressing well and he expected to have some sort of result with the next couple of weeks.
But that was a matter for later contemplation. Today was for Godric’s Hollow. Just below him were the ruins of the Potter’s home, the place where the Dark Lord’s plans first came unstuck. There was little left of the house but it seemed an appropriate place to begin, if for no other reason than it would bring Potter and his sycophants boiling out like tiny, furious ants. Anger would play into his hands. Angry people made mistakes.
He glanced to either side to check that those with him were ready. The other groups around the village would move when they saw the flames from the Potter’s home and they had better be ready or he would have words with them afterwards.
Once he was assured that everything was in readiness, he raised his wand. A single barked word later and the house below him was in flames, the fire stretching high into the night sky. Rodolphus smiled coldly, cruelly, then started down the hill.
