So, instead of having a dead person with a little of Voldemort in them (Lily and James), Harry was left alive, but still had that little piece of Voldemort. Completely wacky, I know, but just something that popped into my head!
My first thought here. . . isn't it just amazing how much we dig into, and theorize about something fictional LOL!

OK, now my second thought! I doubt that the curse takes something out of the caster. For starters, there would now be nothing left of Voldemort or his powers with as many times as he has used it! That said, perhaps there could be a bit of a "copy/paste" kind of effect, only, all but one who have had the spell cast on them have died haven't they, so there is no way to really tell. It does make sense though now that I think of it, the AK being such a powerful spell, and the caster having to have the strong mental desire to see that person dead, that they would have to offer some of themselves in the spell, but perhaps when it is normaly performed, what they have given up comes back? I don't know. . . a possibility I suppose, but I think it more an effect of the rebound. When the spell on Harry rebounded, and Voldemort was left as his mere essence, the essence may have even been spread apart, as if blown up, and some "stuck" to Harry, but. . . then again, once back in his body, Voldemort did not seem to be "missing" any of himself, or his "essence", so the "copy" part seems more plausable again. But, we know that there was more than that going on, because Harry has the scar, all other AK victims show no scaring at all.

Re: Victims of the Avada Kedavra Curse......

I think the main point to be made is that the victims bodies had no marks - none that could be found in autopsy. But the amazing thing is the fact of what happened to Voldemort with the supposed rebound off Harry and the example of what a deflected curse could do, that is, the one Voldemort shot in the Ministry of Magic that bounced off the statue and hit the security guards desk causing it to burst into flames. In Voldemort's case, he lost his body!! I think that is a significant clue as to what happened that night being more then a rebounded AK.

Off topic just a bit
I think this is where the significance of the color of Harry's eyes comes into play, and I will bet that we learn in HBP what that significance is - I don't believe the AK rebounded in the way we are led to believe and that some of that curse was absorbed by Harry and shot back at Voldemort through Harry's green eyes. Just a prediction on my part (can't wait to find out myself)
What did I care if numbers of nameless and faceless people and creatures were slaughtered in the vague future, if in the here and now you were alive, and well, and happy?

Re: Victims of the Avada Kedavra Curse......

What is interesting is that the killing curse cannot be deflected or blocked ... or so we are told.
Yet we have seen now 2 instances where the curse didnt meet the target and instead lead to damage on another item.
But this is a little bit of a digression me thinks

Back on track and all ...
If this was the case then Voldemort should have had the upper hand when he met Harry in GoF - because his wand contained the souls of Lily & James as well as a few more ...
In effect - if I am understanding the question right - then Voldemort should have had some good charms skills inherited by his wand ...
