Narcissa Malfoy was aware of the coming war, the rising of Voldemort, her husband's involvement, her son's cruel fate—all of it. She anticipated it, feared it, planned for it. To ensure her son's future she became a spy for the light and worked secretly to help bring down Voldemort and the Death Eaters.
She only had three stipulations for her aid:
(1) Draco would not be held accountable for any of his actions during the war. When it was over he would be released without punishment or penalty—his birthright and inheritance intact.
(2) Lucius would go away for the rest of his long life as punishment for his actions and crimes against his family.
(3) At the conclusion of the war, Draco will marry Hermione Granger.
Now the war is won, Narcissa is dead, Draco is in Azkaban, and only Hermione is left to pick up the pieces.

Regulus survived the Inferi lake, got pardoned for his Death Eater crimes when he gave Dumbledore the Locket to destroy, and decided to check on Sirius' godson because he couldn't let his brother down and let the boy live with Muggles without at least making sure he was alright.
He doesn't like what he sees and decides to kidnap the Boy-Who-Lived! Former Death Eater or no, surely he can be a better guardian for the boy than the Dursleys.
In his first life, Percy did not have many friends, especially not after the beginning of the war as-quite unfortunately- most wizards tended to die rather quickly, which did not make it very easy to bond with them. However, there was no need to be his friend to know one essential thing about him.
Percy Weasley was efficient. Still is.
To everyone else, he's only an eleven year old, a child, eager to start learning about magic and making friends. To himself, he's a man on a mission.
Protect his family.
Whatever the cost, he will do it.
- Part 2 of Unspeakable Truths
Percy goes back in time.
He doesn't do it to save the world, doesn't do it because he is a Gryffindor, doesn't do it to help the Order of the Phoenix defeat Voldemort.
He does it because Ginny died and his shirt is still drenched in her blood.
He does it because he's selfish, because he's the last one standing in a world destroyed by years of war.
He does it and he succeeds.
His family, however, doesn't understand why his behaviour has changed so much.
- Part 1 of Unspeakable Truths
Peter whirls and sends a nonverbal Stunning Spell in that direction, but the Death Eater blocks it with a slash of their wand.
"Calm down." Regulus Black pulls his mask off. His stare is hard, but icy, not like Sirius's fire. "I know what you are, and I've just gotten proof. You will put your wand away and listen to me, or I might decide not to keep your secret."
(Or, Regulus Black is hunting Horcruxes, because some things never change. But this time, he gets help.)
