History

Sometime after starting his work with the Department of International Magical Co-operation in 1994, Percy Weasley received some dragon dung in his in-tray, which he excused during a dinner at The Burrow as having been a "sample of fertiliser from Norway" and "nothing personal." Fred Weasley secretly advised Harry Potter that it had been personal, as he and his brother George were the ones that had sent it.[6]
