There are many named Death Eaters in the Harry Potter books.
A full list of Death Eaters can be found at The Harry Potter Lexicon.
Because of their role in the novels, Death Eaters are often used as the bad guys in fanfiction, and often they are portrayed as greedy, hedonistic, and/or amoral.
Death Eaters in fan fiction tend to fall into a few different categories:
- the villain
- the anti-hero (particularly in the case of Lucius, Severus, or Draco)--ie, the main character of the story who is not particularly a good person.
- the object of reform--ie, someone for the hero to help reform, or as an excuse for the government to rewrite law.
