- "Rowle was succeeded by Perseus Parkinson, who was likewise pro-Azkaban."
- —Perseus' views as Minister for Magic[src]
He attempted to pass a bill making it illegal to marry a Muggle. However, in doing so, he misread the public mood; the wizarding public was tired of anti-Muggle sentiment and wanted peace. Parkinson was therefore voted out during the next election for Minister.
Behind the scenes
- Perseus Parkinson's attempts to ban mixed marriages are identical to Rappaport's Law introduced by MACUSA president Emily Rappaport. However, unlike in the United States of America, anti-muggle sentiments are not as widespread and confined to wizarding supremacists.
