Re: Snape and Dumbledore: Joint Character Analysis

That's exactly it. All the Order members knew that they were risking their lives. They also put their trust in Dumbledore that all his objectives were for the cause, no matter how risky the assignments. And I'm certain that they all understood that he kept much of the information secret so that Voldemort could not learn their plans.

Snape was already under extreme peril, no matter what he knew about the wand. He had pledged himself to this dangerous task of spying on Voldemort. Knowing more than he needed to would actually put him in more peril, since he might behave differently or Voldemort might accidentally learn something that would hamper the Order in their work. Snape wanted Voldemort defeated, he would not have wanted information that could have aided Voldemort in any way.
