Fighting Forces Part 1
7 October 2019
One thing that the Calamity has never had in abundance is precision. At least, until now. We are seeing an uptick in Foundables related to the specific moment in time when Malfoy Manor served as headquarters for Voldemort.
The Calamity's focus on this delicate part of our history is highly concerning. We'll sort out the details, but the immediate priority is to return these new Foundables as quickly as possible.
BRILLIANT ASCABAN ESCAPEE
Azkaban has seen a number of breakouts in its history, but the Calamity has chosen to focus on this one unimportant inmate. He seems to have escaped during one of the Death Eater-led raids at the height of Voldemort's reign... but otherwise, he was historically inconsequential.
BRILLIANT DEATH EATER
I remember from my childhood how terrifying Death Eaters were. I have to say, the stories did not do them justice. They are much, much worse.
DEATH EATER MASK
Death Eaters wore these masks to hide their identities -- and each one was unique. Yet this specific mask keeps turning up. Why? Why this mask?
AZKABANE PRISONER NUMBER
So, I looked at this prisoner number to see if there was some hint as to why it was caught up by the Calamity, and it seems to be tied to the same escapee we keep running across. Why is the Calamity focused on this one inmate?
OLLIVANDER IN CHAIN
Ollivander was tortured at Malfoy Manor. I cannot imagine another reason why he would appear in this surge other than his incarceration there.
MALFOY FAMILY CREST
Everyone knows that the Malfoys are one of the twenty-eight pure-blood wizarding families. Seems like the kind of thing the wizarding world should set about forgetting... but this crest is appearing. Is it because they were servants of Voldemort?
The Calamity seems like it might be drawing from a specific moment in time. It feels almost... intentional, in a way we've never seen before.
If this is true, it's not a welcome development... and I am left with an uncomfortable array of unanswerable questions.
