I hadn't forgotten, I just think it needs to be considered too. There are too many muggle borns at Hogwarts and too much emphasis being placed upon being a pure blood etc. What I mean is, its possible that Riddles father and even one of his parents came from or were related to wizards - the same way that Harry is related to the Dursleys. It might explain why Riddles father freaked out when he found out his wife/gf was a witch.

Re: why only Tom Riddle??

Although the heir should be pureblood just to carry on the tradtion - the fact Tom mum looks to be the final blood relative means that Tom got the job by virtue of no-one else of purer blood existed.
While I am sure Salazar isnt overjoyed that the last decendant is a half blood with no family to carry on the blood lines - well what can he do

Re: why only Tom Riddle??

Salazar created that place as a self proclaimed shrine to his own ignorance - when he was unable to get the other founders to see his point of view he subversively created a place where a worship to his misguided views can be realised.
He knew that whoever was deciding from him would always find their roots in this place - and I am sure there is a great deal more to the Chamber than what we saw in CoS - which is why it was never sealed or destroyed post CoS - it was just opened and we saw that it was there.
Salazar placed elements in there we will see later on I am sure - things that any descendant of his could make full use of.

Re: why only Tom Riddle??

i believe heir of slytherin has a sort of double meaning:

1) Literal Heir of Slytherin being the flesh and blood descendant with the gift of Parseltongue and the want to kill the muggle-borns and blood-traitors in Hogwarts (since there are half-bloods in Slytherin house, which makes me believe that slytherin didnt care if u were pure-blood or half-blood, so long as you were not a muggle-born and had a contempt for muggle-borns and muggles)

2) the Parseltongue Heir: since the chamber of secrets needs to be opened by a wizard who can speak parseltongue, i would assume that ANY wizard who can speak parselmouth could open the chamber (after all, harry was able to open the chamber, and he has no relation to slytherin)

If it's wrong to think Tom Riddle is attractive, then i don't want to be right.
