Fighting Forces Part 2

INTRO

CONSTANCE

We've seen another turn in the Calamity. The new Foundables we're seeing all seem to be from the same timeframe as those from Malfoy Manor, but otherwise we can't establish a connection...


BRILLIANT SIRIUS BLACK

CONSTANCE

Sirius Black was a former inmate of Azkaban -- could this be a continuation of the previous strain of Foundables we observed recently? He was distantly related to the Malfoys by marriage... but he also opposed everything they stood for.


KREACHER

CONSTANCE

I've got a bit of a soft spot for Kreacher. As the story goes, he fought at the Battle of Hogwarts. But he was also a loyal servant to the Black family. Why is he turning up?


ORDER OF THE PHOENIX PHOTO

CONSTANCE

This is an odd thing to turn up now. Many of the people in this photograph were dead before Voldemort took control of the Ministry, but those that weren't fought him.


PHOENIX PATRONUS

CONSTANCE

The most famous Phoenix Patronus belonged to Albus Dumbledore, who gave his life in the fight against Voldemort. It's likely this Patronus was used to deliver messages to the Order...


PORTRAIT OF PHINNEAS NIGELLUS

CONSTANCE

Phinneas Nigellus Black... famously terrible headmaster of Hogwarts. Hmm. He was long dead before any of this. This surge in the Calamity is baffling.


TROLL LEG UMBRELLA STAND

CONSTANCE

If I'm not mistaken, this umbrella stand was kept by the Black family in their home at 12 Grimmauld Place. The Blacks were also pure-blood with questionable ideals... is that the connection to the Malfoys?


END

CONSTANCE

After thorough review, it appears that all these recent Foundables can be tied directly to 12 Grimmauld Place, the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix -- even that portrait of Phinneas Nigellus Black. I think I have it!


At first, we returned Foundables tied to Voldemort's side of the Second Wizarding War... and then, the Calamity seems to have adapted and presented us with Foundables from the secret hideout of the resistance against him.


Is the Calamity reacting to our reaction to it? Does that mean that we could theoretically influence it somehow?


EPILOGUE

CONSTANCE

One last thing -- there are still loads of Death Eater Foundables out there. If you're up for it, we could use your help clearing them away.


Great work returning all those Death Eater Foundables. We'll all rest easier knowing that lot is back where they belong.
