The Cloak of Invisibility Part 1


The Cloak of Invisibility was the third and final of the three Deathly Hallows, first owned by the youngest of the Peverell brothers, Ignotus Peverell. The Cloak of Invisibility was the only known Invisibility Cloak that did not fade with age and provided everlasting protection to the wearer, something no normal Invisibility Cloak could provide.While Antioch and Cadmus asked for powerful objects for themselves, Ignotus was the only one of the three Peverell brothers that did not trust Death, and rather than ask Death for something to further his own desires, he asked for the power to leave that fateful meeting without Death being able to follow him. Not wishing to betray his true motives in giving the brothers their "prizes," Death begrudgingly took off his Cloak of Invisibility that he used to sneak up on people with and handed it over to Ignotus. While his two brothers met gruesome fates at the indirect hands of their own gifts Ignotus used the Cloak of Invisibility to successfully hide from Death for many years. Finally, when he was an old man and had lived a happy long life, Ignotus took off the Cloak of Invisibility, gave it to his own son, and went with Death as an old friend, but on his own terms and not those of Death.
