Stronger United Part 1
Story Released at Event Start
Help return Brilliant Foundables from the Ministry Atrium during Part 1 of The Stronger United Brilliant Event, starting Tuesday, November 12 at 11 a.m. PT.
The Calamity most recently focused on Grimmauld Place, headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix. It looks like there may well be another surge, and early accounts indicate that it may also be related to the Order.
The Calamity always seems to focus on something in particular -- a time, a place, or a group of people -- if we can identify what the Calamity is targeting, we may be able to figure out how to stop it.
BRILLIANT MAD-EYE MOODY
Mad-Eye Moody was one of the original members of the Order of the Phoenix -- one of the few that survived to fight Voldemort a second time. So perhaps the Calamity isn't done with the Order yet?
BRILLIANT NYMPHADORA TONKS
Tonks joined the Order and died during the Second Wizarding War. I hope that Teddy -- that's her son -- doesn't come across this Foundable... I know from personal experience what it's like to interact with a dead parent.
Hang on, you weren't part of the Order of the Phoenix, were you, Gethsemane? And you certainly didn't die during the Second Wizarding War...
I can confirm that I didn't die. As for the Order of the Phoenix, I was never invited to join them. But there were other -- and some might say better -- ways to combat the Dark Lord.
If I'm not mistaken, Madam Bones wasn't a member of the Order of the Phoenix. Odd that she would show up here... she did die fighting Voldemort. Maybe that's the connection?
Interestingly, Kingsley Shacklebolt was a member of the Order, and did his share of fighting... but he's still alive. So I think we can rule out "death by Voldemort" as an element of this surge.
Minister Scrimgeour died during the Second Wizarding War, protecting my location from Voldemort. So is the Calamity just... pulling people back who fought against Voldemort?
If you look at all of the things that we returned, there is one thing in common -- everyone worked directly for the Ministry. Why is the Calamity suddenly focusing on the Ministry?
Could it be that our efforts to combat the Calamity are drawing its attention?
