BackstoryFirst Wizarding War
During the First Wizarding War, Travers murdered the family of Marlene McKinnon, according to Igor Karkaroff. He could not escape imprisonment and was sentenced to Azkaban sometime in, or prior to, 1981 for this crime.
According to Karkaroff, Travers was among Lord Voldemort's most important supporters.
Second Wizarding War
Hermione Granger: "But I thought Stan Shunpike was in Azkaban?"
Kingsley Shacklebolt: "Hermione, there's obviously been a mass breakout which the Ministry has hushed up. Travers's hood fell off when I cursed him, he's supposed to be inside too."

Travers threatening Ginny Weasley in the Death Chamber
Travers escaped from Azkaban in the mass breakout in early 1996. He participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and held Ginny Weasley captive during the Death Chamber stand off. He was likely arrested afterwards and escaped in the 1997 mass break-out with Stan Shunpike before the summer of 1997, in a breakout that was hushed up by the Ministry of Magic as Kingsley Shacklebolt said that Travers should be in Azkaban in 1997. 
On 27 July, 1997 Travers participated in the Battle of the Seven Potters, pursuing Hermione Granger, who was disguised as Harry Potter, and Kingsley Shacklebolt, who cursed him.
Before the beginning of August of the same year, Travers was convicted again for his Death Eater activities.
Fall of the Ministry
"Many regular Potterwatch listeners will know that the Ministry's hushed up a mass breakout from Azkaban. Escapees include the infamous Death Eater Travers and Stan Shunpike, that you may have met on the Knight Bus."
—Fred Weasley during a Potterwatch broadcast[src]
Death Eaters meeting held at Malfoy Manor during the height of the Second Wizarding War
On 1 August, 1997, the Ministry of Magic was taken by the Death Eaters and Pius Thicknesse (under the influence of the Imperius Curse) was made Minister for Magic.
Travers was then released from Azkaban when the Death Eater-led Ministry hosted up a mass breakout.
Now falsely cleared, Travers went on to work at the Ministry of Magic (at the Department of Magical Law Enforcement), as a superior to Mafalda Hopkirk. He also seemed to have some involvement with the recently created Muggle-Born Registration Commission, as he got to choose which Ministry employee could act as a stenographer for the Muggle-born trials.
Ambush at the Lovegood House
Selwyn: "Didn't I tell you there was no need to hurry, Travers? Didn't I tell you this nutter was just raving as usual?"
Xenophilius Lovegood: "No... no... upstairs... Potter!"

Death Eaters Travers and Selwyn ambush the Lovegood home
In early 1998, Travers and Selwyn came to Xenophilius Lovegood's home because he claimed, truthfully, that Harry Potter was there. After Travers checked the area, they threatened to kill his daughter if he summoned them under false pretences, only to see Harry escape.
Break-in of Gringotts Wizarding Bank
Travers: "Well, I confess I am surprised to see you out and about, Bellatrix."
Hermione Granger (as Bellatrix Lestrange): "Really? Why?"
Travers: "Well, I heard that the inhabitants of Malfoy Manor were confined to the house, after the... ah... escape."
Hermione Granger (as Bellatrix Lestrange): "The Dark Lord forgives those who have served him most faithfully in the past. Perhaps your credit is not as good with him as mine is, Travers."

Ron and Hermione (disguised as Dragomir Despard and Bellatrix Lestrange) break into Gringotts Bank
Later that year, Travers met Hermione Granger, disguised by means of the Polyjuice Potion as Bellatrix Lestrange, and went into Gringotts Wizarding Bank with her. While there he expressed disdain towards Muggle-born beggars as well as goblins. Harry placed him under the Imperius Curse to facilitate their breaking in to the Lestrange Vault and sent Travers off to hide.
Battle of Hogwarts
On 2 May, 1998 Travers took part in the Battle of Hogwarts. During the conflict, Travers fought Parvati Patil and Dean Thomas with the help of Dolohov and another Death Eater. His ultimate fate is uncertain.
