Lucius Malfoy is a Death Eater, head of a wealthy pure-blood wizarding family and a psychopath. He lives with his wife Narcissa Malfoy (née Black) and their son Draco at the Malfoy Manor in Wiltshire. Lucius was a school governor of Hogwarts before being sacked, and has very close connections at the Ministry of Magic.
He was awarded acres of land where Malfoy Manor was built. For generations the Malfoy family annexed the land owned by neighbouring Muggles and invested heavily in Muggle currency and assets as their fortune grew.
The Malfoys expanded their already large estate with the lands of their Muggle neighbours, and dabbled successfully into Muggle currency and assets, becoming one of the wealthiest families in wizarding Britain.
Narcissa Malfoy has a job, though it’s not employment for money. Her job is protecting her son and husband.
The result is that they are one of the richest wizarding families in Britain, and it has been rumoured for many years (though never proven) that over the centuries the family has dabbled successfully in Muggle currency and assets.
While these beliefs would always go against what Harry and his friends believed in, Narcissa was a part of the Voldemort entourage during the Dark Lord’s final months. Although she was never a Death Eater. Indeed, she ultimately held him and his friends responsible for her husband’s capture and incarceration.
