Godric's Hollow and aftermathEdit

As Quirinus QuirrellEdit

Sometime around March 1991, Quirinus Quirrell finds one of Riddle's horcruxes. Riddle then possesses Quirrell's body and assumes his identity.

In a scheme to obtain the Philosopher's Stone owned by Perenelle Flamel, Riddle gets hired as Hogwarts' Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher for the next school year. He then makes Flamel believe that he can find the Stone anywhere she hides it, so she instead leaves it to Dumbledore to protect in Hogwarts using the Mirror of Perfect Reflection.

While going as Professor Quirrell, Riddle leaves hints that he is his former, Wizarding-War-hero identity David Monroe in disguise.

Riddle quickly becomes Harry's mentor. Later in the school year, he hears Sybill Trelawney's prophecy about Harry ending the world and resolves to counteract it "at every possible point of intervention", including by killing Harry.
