Professor Quirinus Quirrell was a Professor at Hogwarts who taught Muggle Studies, and latter Defense against the Dark Arts in Harry's first year. Quirrell claimed he had received his turban from an African prince for dealing with a zombie. He met Lord Voldemort, whose body was recently destroyed by a backfired killing curse (Avada Kedavra), in an Albanian forest. Quirrell claimed he met vampires there to cover up what really happened. Voldemort inhabited the back of Quirrell's head and did as he said until he was killed by Harry Potter in the chamber that held the Mirror of Erised that led to the Sorcerer's Stone. Because of Harry's mother's love sacrifice, it had a killing effect on Quirrell, turning him to dust, leaving only his empty clothes. Voldemort abandoned him, proving that he cared no more for his followers than his enemies.
