Harry Potter Fans..Riddle Me This!

I am watching Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets right now. Which makes me wonder..we all know that Nagini was a horcrox. We also know Voldemort was said to be incapable of love. But he sure did protect that snake and take good care of her.

Was it because she was a horcrux or because she harbored part of his soul? A sort of self love? Maybe he only cared for her because she was a horcrux? Or do you think it was because he genuinely cared for her as a pet?

I'm also wondering..the snake was girl. So how did she harbor a male's soul? Would the male soul (a part of it) not make her a boy? lol.

holding apart of his soul wouldnt have changed the animals sex at all. His protecting her had everything to do with it harboring part of his soul and his connection to slytherin that he was fond of the snake.

In the last movie/book Nagini was the last Horcrux. If she died, he could then be killed. Protecting her was his way of protecting himself. He couldn't love, he wasn't capable of it. Had she not had a piece of his soul inside he wouldn't have cared for her.

Her being a female has nothing to do with it. Just like he had his sould in a ring, book, necklace, cup. All it was was a place to store a piece of himself.

He protected her because she held part of his souls. The final piece, as it was.  Also, The soul can not change her gender.

I always assumed he cared for her because she was a horcrux.  As for the male/female thing, I think you're over thinking it, lol.

I think Nagini was the closest Voldemort ever came to love. Remember, he did put a piece of his soul in her to start with. It connected him to the thing that he loved most. But yes, he protected her because his soul was inside of her. And why the hell did they skip,'Prisoner in Azkaban'. WHY?! Lol
