Quirrell era um anfitrião disposto?


Pode-se inferir do cânon se Quirrell era um anfitrião disposto a Voldemort? Ele era um defensor dele antes de se tornar seu anfitrião?

Se ele fosse enganado, por exemplo, encontrando uma forma fantasmagórica e enfraquecida de Voldemort que prometia uma grande recompensa por ajudar, e depois ele foi forçado a fazer todo o mal que fez, eu não contaria isso como sendo um host disposto.

TL; DR: Não, ele não era um anfitrião disposto, MAS o terreno estava definitivamente lá para permitir que ele fosse possuído (em outras palavras, ele estava chegando).

"I saw Quirrell as a gifted but delicate boy, who would probably have been teased for his timidity and nerves during his school life. Feeling inadequate and wishing to prove himself, he developed an (initially theoretical) interest in the Dark Arts. Like many people who feel themselves to be insignificant, even laughable, Quirrell had a latent desire to make the world sit up and notice him." (from JK Rowling on Quirrel in Pottermore, Chapter 8).

Pottermore elabora sobre isso no capítulo 17:

Quirrell set out deliberately to find whatever remained of the Dark wizard, partly out of curiosity, partly out of that unacknowledged desire for importance. At the very least, Quirrell fantasised that he could be the man who tracked Voldemort down, but at best, might learn skills from Voldemort that would ensure he was never laughed at again.

Though Hagrid was correct in saying that Quirrell had a ‘brilliant mind,’ the Hogwarts teacher was both naive and arrogant in thinking that he would be able to control an encounter with Voldemort, even in the Dark wizard's weakened state. When Voldemort realised that the young man had a position at Hogwarts, he took immediate possession of Quirrell, who was incapable of resisting.

While Quirrell did not lose his soul, he became completely subjugated by Voldemort, who caused a frightful mutation of Quirrell's body: now Voldemort looked out of the back of Quirrell's head and directed his movements, even forcing him to attempt murder. Quirrell tried to put up feeble resistance on occasion, but Voldemort was far too strong for him.

Eu acho que Quirrel era um anfitrião disposto. Em seu encontro com o Lord das Trevas enfraquecido, ele ficou genuinamente convencido e foi para o lado sombrio. Isto é evidenciado pelo seu monólogo em Philosopher's Stone capítulo 17.

‘I met him [Voldemort] when I travelled around the world. A foolish young man I was then, full of riddiculous ideas about good and evil. Lord Voldemort showed me how wrong I was. There is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it … Since then, I have served him faithfully, […]
