Daily Prophet A clipping from a very old edition of the Daily Prophet:

“The victim, Hamish Steed, was under Ministry protection at the time of Flannery's murderous rampage. After several hours of interrogation, Flannery admitted that he used an ancient spell to track down his greatest desire - which happened to be the location of the late Steed”.
"Someone really used a spell to track down their murder victim?"

Penelope's Promotion An Internal Ministry Memo written by Harry Potter, announcing Penelope Padgett's promotion to the rank of Auror. The memo details her accomplishments within the Department of Magical Law Enforcement as reason behind the promotion.
"There was no argument - Penelope excelled in her work within the Department. There was an opening and she was the best candidate.
But she was never a rule follower.
This isn't an uncommon point of view amongst Aurors. Many prefer doing things their own way, and her work was outstanding...
But when she went missing there wasn't much for me follow. She was SO secretive...
"

Auror, Department of Magical Law Enforcement
Coded Message WU
Coded Message An encrypted note in Penelope's precise script. It reads:

"Ur'k t ssl!"
"This is another of those Muggle puzzles. Unless you know the code, it's useless. She should have just used magic like a normal person.
Apparently she and Fawley liked to communicate in secret.
How romantic.
"

Officer, Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office
Comet290
Penelope's Broom A Comet 290, made by Comet Trading Company. The handle has been worn with age, and "If lost, return to Penelope Padgett" has been magically carved into the wood, near the base of the broom.
"Penelope and I used to talk about Quidditch all the time in the office. She was a huge fan of the Pride of Portree.
She told me that her Comet was the last thing she received from her mother before she was sent to Azkaban. It's the only thing she has to remember her by.
Penelope favoured her broom to travel with during field work instead of Apparating. She said it was because of her motion sickness...
Now I wonder if she was telling me the whole story..."

Gethsemane's Warning WU
Gethsemane's Warning A Ministry memo addressed to Harry Potter, from Gethsemane Prickle:

"Be careful with that Padgett woman, Potter. Her parents were followers of You-Know-Who, and you know the apple rarely falls far from the tree. She's trouble, mark my words."
"I warned them about her then, and now I have been proven correct. A dirgible plum doesn't just float away from the bush."
Gethsemane Prickle
Head of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures
"Penelope has been missing for years."
Constance Pickering
Junior Undersecretary, Ministry of Magic
"Exactly. Totally gone. Even Potter can't find her. And now, coincidently, her husband has caused the Calamity.
If you think the Calamity isn't tied to her disappearance, you are naive.
"
Gethsemane Prickle
Head of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures

Brilliant Forbidden Forest

"Hello there! I know yeh've got yer hands full w' Confoundables everywhere and such, but i could use yer help w' somethin' in particular, if yer willing.

Yeh see, somethin's not right 'bout the Forbidden Forest. Ever since the Calamity started disappearin' creatures, the forest's been thrown outta sorts.

If you come across any Foundables from Forbidden Forest, let me know, would yeh?

Brilliant Buckbeak WU
Brilliant Buckbeak After fleeing from an unjust execution with the help of Harry Potter, Buckbeak went on the run with the fugitive Sirius Black. Following Black's death, Buckbeak — rechristened 'Witherwings' to avoid further prosecution — rejoined the Hippogriff herd at Hogwarts.
"Beaky! He's my special favourite Hippogriff. It's good to have him back where he belongs."
Rubeus Hagrid
Brilliant Unicorn WU
Brilliant Unicorn Shy but powerfully magical creatures, Unicorns are swift-footed enough to outrun most predators. Their speed and agility are especially vital for those living in the notoriously dangerous Forbidden Forest.
"Not many can say they've gotten so close to a Unicorn. Shy, they are... Yeh've done a good thing, sendin’ her home to the forest."
Rubeus Hagrid
SalamanderWU
Brilliant Salamander Small, magical lizards that are born from fire, Salamanders may appear red or blue depending on the temperature of the flames. They are capable of living outside of their fires for four to six hours, but will die instantly if their fire is extinguished.
"Well now, that's more like it! Salamanders are proper magical beasts. Returning this little fella will bring some harmony back to the forest."
Rubeus Hagrid
Brilliant Scorched Tree Stump WU
Brilliant Scorched Tree Stump This stump appears to be that of a yew tree, a species indigenous to England and Scotland. Its bark has been scorched by fire, perhaps by one of the many magical creatures that call the Forbidden Forest home.
"Well, that stump definitely come from the forest. I think it was even the home to a creature at some point! Maybe see if yeh can find somethin' more... livin' next time, eh?"
Rubeus Hagrid
SnargaluffWU
Brilliant Snargaluff Closely resembling a harmless tree stump, the Snargaluff plant is known to attack with grasping, thorny vines when provoked. Despite this effective method of self-defence Snargaluffs are cultivated for the pulsating green pods contained within their stumps. For safety reasons, it is recommended that any attempt to harvest a Snargaluff's pods be done in pairs.
"Ah, vou've got yerself a Snargaluff Sprout would be chuffed. That's one livin' thing returned to the forest only a few ‘undred more to go!"
Rubeus Hagrid
Brilliant Young Acromantula WU
Brilliant Young Acromantula Acromantulas are giant, sentient spiders capable of human speech. Although they are native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia, rumours persist of a colony living deep within the Forbidden Forest of Hogwarts.
"Ah, an Acromantula! Magnificent creatures, aren't they? He'll be much happier with his kin in the forest."
Rubeus Hagrid
"The Forbidden Forest's more like its old self now it's regained some o' its missin' creatures. Thanks for all yer help — couldn't've done it without yeh!"
Rubeus Hagrid

Brilliant Forbidden Forest Pond

"Ah, there yeh are! About a year ago you were such a big help returnin' creatures to the forest, I thought maybe yeh'd be willin' to help out again.

Yeh see, the Calamity's set somethin' loose that shouldn't be. Somethin' dangerous. It's burned a path right through the Forbidden Forest!
"
Rubeus Hagrid
"Hagrid, are you saying that there is actual physical damage being done in the Forbidden Forest? By a Foundable?"
Hermione Granger
"Aye. Seems like maybe so. Something burned that path — and it wadn't no angry Blast-ended Skrewt, I can tell yeh."
Rubeus Hagrid
"This is terrible news. If the creatures stolen by the Calamity have started affecting the environment outside of the Traces? This might be a real disaster."

Brilliant Newt Scamander WU
Brilliant Newt Scamander Newton "Newt" Scamander rose to fame as the author of the seminal text on Magizoology, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Although he gained celebrity status as a bestselling author, he would go on to retire to a quiet life in Dorset with his wife Porpentina and their pet Kneazles: Hoppy, Milly and Mauler.
"Merlin's beard! You met Newt Scamander? Amazin' bloke. Wrote the book on Magizoology, he did."
Rubeus Hagrid
"I think it is safe to assume that if a Foundable version of Newt could affect the world, he certainly wouldn't set fire to it."
Hermione Granger
Dragon claw WU
Dragon claw A discarded clow from an unknown Dragon. Dragon claw are sometimes powdered for use as a brain-boosting ingredient in Potion-making.
"Now that's interestin'. Dragon claws are valuable to Potion-makers, but they aren't easy to get hold of, on account of 'em being attached to Dragons."
Rubeus Hagrid
Dragon-hide gloves WU
Dragon-hide gloves Made from the tough, thick skin of a dragon, Dragon-hide gloves protect the wearer from nurns and other injuries. Due to the sometimes dengerous nature of the work, Dragon-hide gloves are recommended equipment for the study of Herbology and Magizoology.
"Dragon-hide gloves, eh? They're dead useful when you're handlin' creatures what don't want to be handled."
Rubeus Hagrid
Fire Crab WU
Fire Crab Fire Crabs resemble tortoises with crab-like legs and are coveted for their valuable, jewel-encrusted shells. Despite their effective self-defense measure — the ability to shoot flames from their backsides — Fire Crabs are a protected species whose trade and breeding are regulated by the Ministry of Magic.
"I've got some experience with Fire Crabs, and they generally won't blast yeh if yeh don't provoke 'em, but if you do? One of 'em nearly cost me my beard once."
Rubeus Hagrid
Fire seed bush WU
Fire seed bush The Fire seed bush is plant that burns continuously as it grows, extinguishing only once it dies. It is endemic to Great Britain and produces seeds with magical properties.
"Hagrid, could a Fire seed bush do the damage to the Forest that you saw?"
Hermione Granger
"A Fire seed bush could certainly start a fire, but nothin' like that. I think we're lookin' for somethin' packing a bit more of a punch."
Rubeus Hagrid
Ukrainian Ironbelly WU
Ukrainian Ironbelly Native to Ukraine, the Ironbelly is the largest Dragon species — capable of flying off with an entire ship in it's clay. Its hide is metallic grey and especially strong, giving the dragon its name. A trained Ironbelly was used to protect Gringotts Wizarding Bank for many years.
"Oooh, a Ukrainian Ironbelly, of course! Beautiful creatures, and great fire-breathers... well, that explains the state of the forest, dunnit?"
Rubeus Hagrid
"Can we be sure THIS dragon Foundable burned the Forest?"
Hermione Granger
"Well, since the Calamity returned her to her home, we're not goin' to get a chance to ask her, are we? But this does remind me...
I did see a rather large creature flying about late last night. Thought it might be a bird. Coulda been an Ironbelly. But she weren't stuck in a Trace at all. She was flyin' free.
"
Rubeus Hagrid
"Hagrid, I think I have something I need you to do. I need you to go find us an Ironbelly."
Hermione Granger
"Hermione! I found yer Ironbelly! She was poking around a Trace in the Forest and when she saw me he let out a belch o' flame... was somethin'!"
Rubeus Hagrid
"So it was an actual Ironbelly? Not a Foundable."
Hermione Granger
"Correct. Absoluely real as me own face. And this Ironbelly — she's far from her home. Must've been drawn here for somethin' to make her fly this far west..."
Rubeus Hagrid
"I wonder... There have been some theories around being a Foundable — that if a piece of you is stolen, you can feel it. That you can sense it. I wonder if Fantastic Beasts feel it more..."
Hermione Granger
"Tis a possibility. Dragons are far more sensitive creatures than you think. At least, if she was hurtin', we sent that piece right back to her. Twas the right thing to do."
Rubeus Hagrid

Brilliant Gryffindor Dormitory

"Hermione... I've been deluged with owls from friends saying they've been returning lots of Foundables related to me - everything from old socks to a young me being kissed by a Dementor!

Perhaps by being in the public eye, I'm more subject to the whims of the Calamity...
"
Harry Potter
"Well, there was that Daily Prophet feature about your work with the Statute of Secrecy Task Force. Perhaps that's drawn the attention of the Calamity somehow?

That may confirm a theory I've had, that if enough people focus on something, it could affect how the Calamity behaves.
"

Harry’s Triwizard Cup Uniform WU
Harry’s Triwizard Cup Uniform When the Triwizard Tournament was reinstated, new age restrictions were put into place for the safety of the competitors. Despite these precautions, a plot by Lord Voldemort succeeded in naming Harry Potter the fourth and youngest Champion.
"I never thought I'd see that uniform again. I was wearing it the night Cedric Diggory was killed..."
Harry Potter
Harry’s School Trunk WU
Harry’s School Trunk During his years as a student, Harry Potter used this trunk to carry his belongings to and from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It contains an assortment of items, from necessities like robes and spell books to rubbish like broken quills and desiccated beetle eyes.
"You didn't open that trunk, did you? There's no telling what's in there. Loads of old dungbombs, I expect."
Harry Potter
Brilliant Quidditch Captain Harry WU
Brilliant Quidditch Captain Harry As captain for Gryffindor, Harry Potter led his team to win the Quidditch Cup. In part due to their success on the pitch, Gryffindor would also go on to win the House Cup that year.
"Have I mentioned how terribly strange it is, seeing your younger self materialise out of nowhere? It's as unnerving as using a Time-Turner."
Harry Potter
Brilliant Hedwig WU
Brilliant Hedwig A beautiful snowy owl, Hedwig was often admired by Harry Potter's classmates for her bright white plumage. While lovely, her unique appearance made her easy to identify, preventing Harry from using her to deliver messages when secrecy was essential.
"Hagrid gave me Hedwig just before my first term. She kept me connected to the magical world whenever I was away from Hogwarts."
Harry Potter
Mismatched Socks WU
Mismatched Socks These socks belong to Harry Potter, who is quite fond of them despite the fact that they are mismatched, for they were a gift from his House-Elf friend, Dobby. One sock is red with a pattern of broomsticks, while the other is green and patterned in tiny golden Snitches.
"I cannot believe that a worldwide Calamity has taken the time to steal my mismatched socks... the whole thing is mad."
Harry Potter
Harry’s Weasley Jumper WU
Harry’s Weasley Jumper This cosy woolen jumper, knit by Molly Weasley, was given as a Christmas gift to Harry Potter during his first year at Hogwarts. Harry, who was unaccustomed to receiving gifts, was touched to be included in a Weasley family tradition.
"My first Weasley jumper! Ron always used to complain that his was maroon, but I was happy just to have a Christmas gift."
Harry Potter
"I find it very strange to have pieces of my life appearing in public for everyone to see.

I guess if I look on the bright side, perhaps we can try and use this quirk in the Calamity to our advantage.
"
Harry Potter

Brilliant Harry's Desk

"Harry, a lot of our volunteers have been finding Foundables from your office. Why would that be?"
Constance Pickering
"Because the Calamity hates me? Seriously, it probably has to do with that recent article in The Prophet."
Harry Potter
"The one with your picture? That praised your work for the SOS Task Force?"
Constance Pickering
"Yes, Hermione has a theory that the Calamity seems to choose Foundables based on public perception."
Harry Potter
"Sounds to me like you need to stay clear of the papers."

Brilliant Golden Snitch WU
Brilliant Golden Snitch Caught by Harry Potter during his first Quidditch match, this Golden Snitch was later used by Albus Dumbledore to hold the Resurrection Stone. An inscription on the side of the Snitch reads, "I open at the close."

Brilliant Hogwarts Heroes Daily Prophet WU
Hogwarts Heroes Daily Prophet The Daily Prophet, a newspaper serving the British wizarding community, has been dutifully keeping its readers informed of the latest news, theories, and Ministry missteps in the ongoing Calamity crisis.
"The Prophet has been having a go at the Ministry for our handling of the Calamity, and sometimes I wonder if they aren't right. Problem is, I can't for the life of me think of anything more we can manage."
Harry Potter
Brilliant DMLE Badge WU
DMLE Badge As members of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Aurors are responsible for investigating magical crimes and protecting the wizarding world from practitioners of dark magic.
"My greatest ambition as a student was becoming an Auror. It's really the only career I ever considered after Hogwarts."
Harry Potter
Brilliant London Five Photograph WU
London Five Photograph When the investigation into the disappearance of the London Five was shuttered, no one took the news harder than Grim Fawley, whose wife Penelope was among the missing. The Calamity was theorized by many to be Grim's revenge against the Ministry that failed to recover her.
"When the investigation into the disappearance of the London Five was shuttered, we stopped looking for them... “officially”."

Brilliant Framed Family Photo (Ginny, Albus, James, Lily) WU
Framed Family Photo (Ginny, Albus, James, Lily) This framed photograph from Harry Potter's desk captures a happy moment with his family: his wife Ginny, sons Albus and James, and his young daughter Lily.
"That picture is from when we went on holiday. Unfortunately, with the Calamity in full swing, I'm not sure anyone is getting a holiday this summer."

Brilliant Harry's Ministry ID Card WU
Harry's Ministry ID Card This officially-issued Ministry identification card belongs to Harry Potter, an Auror with the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
"The Calamity is stealing such mundane things, there's no rhyme or reason to it. Even if we could manipulate it intentionally, to what end?"

Brilliant Ravenclaw Student Rowena Ravenclaw, founder of Ravenclaw House, valued intelligence and creativity among her students.

Hogwarts Express conductor WU
Hogwarts Express conductor Charged with safely delivering students to and from Platform 9 3/4, the Hogwarts Express Conductor uses his golden pocketwatch and a hearty bellow of “All aboard!” to ensure that the train departs on time.
"Although he only makes the journey to and from Hogwarts a few times a year, I am certain that a train-load of magically-equipped teenagers makes for an evenful trip."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Hogwarts Express WU
Hogwarts Express In the years following the establishment of the Statute of Secrecy, discretely delivering students to Hogwarts became a challenge. When Portkeys proved to be impractical, Minister for Magic Ottaline Gambol, who was intrigued by Muggle technology, suggested the use of a steam engine.
"Students have been traveling to and from school on the Hogwarts Express fore over century. Generations of alumni have shared in this wonderful tradition, and it is as much a part of the Hogwarts experience as the Sorting ceremony."

Brilliant Luggage Trolley WU
Luggage Trolley Students traveling to and from Hogwarts use these trolleys to transport their school trunks, and often run trolley-first at the hidden entrance to Platform 9 3/4.

Luggage Trolley Witch A favourite fixture of the Hogwarts Express, the Trolley witch keeps students supplied with Chocolate Frogs and Pumpkin Pasties during their journeys to and from Hogwarts.

Brilliant Sorting Hat WU
Brilliant Sorting Hat In addition to its student-sorting duties, the Sorting Hat performs a lyrical monologue to open the new term. Depending on the state of the wizarding world, the hat's message ranges from welcoming and whimsical to dire and thought-provoking.

Brilliant Carriage Drawn by Thestrals, the Hogwarts Carriages appear to move on their own to most students. The Carriages transport students above first year to and from Hogsmeade Station at the start and end of term.

Minerva McGonagall
Hogwarts Boat WU

"The boats provide first-year students theit first glimpse of the castle as they cross the Black Lake. It is, by accounts, an impressive sight."

Thestral WU
Brilliant Thestral Although the superstitious believe them to be ill omens, Thestrals are actually quite intelligent and docile creatures who have a keen sense of direction.
"Fore years after Battle of Hogwarts, virtally all of our students could see the Thestrals. It was a constant remembers of the cost of that horrible fight. I just hope that the Calamity dosen't recedually condemn anothe generation of students to the seme fate."

Brilliant Malfoy Manor

"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 Death Eater WU
Brilliant Death Eater Zealous followers of Lord Voldemort, Death Eaters were feared for their cruelty and viciousness. For their many crimes — including kidnapping, torture, and murder — many were given life sentences in Azkaban Prison.
"I remeber from my childhood how terrifying Death Eaters were. I have to say, the stories did not do them justice. They a nuch, much whorse."
Constance Pickering
Death Eater Mask WU
Death Eater Mask Lord Voldemort's followers, known as Death Eaters, wore masks to hide their identities and intimidate their enemies. No two Death Eaters wore the same mask.
"Death Eaters wore these masks to hide their identities — and each one was unique. Yet this specifie mask keeps turning up. Why? Why this mask?"
Constance Pickering
Brilliant Azkaban Escapee WU
Brilliant Azkaban Escapee An escaped inmate of Azkaban Prison, this vicious Dark wizard was imprisoned for breaking wizarding law.
"Azkaban has seen a number of breakouts in its history, but the Calamity has choseen 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."
Constance Pickering
Azkaban Prisoner Number WU
Azkaban Prisoner Number Upon arriving at Azkaban, prisoners are photographed holding placards with their inmate identification numbers. This placard belonged to an unknown Death Eater imprisoned after Voldemort's fall.
"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?"
Constance Pickering
Malfoy Family Crest WU
Malfoy Family Crest This heraldic crest belongs to the Malfoy family. Latin script beneath a large silver M reads, "Sanctimonia Vincet Semper".
"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?"

Garrick Ollivander WU
Garrick Ollivander A renowned wandmaker and proprietor of Ollivanders wand shop, Garrick Ollivander was respected for his skill and knowledge of wand lore. During the Second Wizarding War, he was abducted and tortured for information about the connection between Voldemort's wand and Harry Potter's.
"Ollivander was tortured at Malfoy Manor. I cannot imagine another reasone whu he would appear in this surge other than his incarceration there."
Constance Pickering
"The Calamity seens like in might be drawing from a specific moment in time. It feels almost... intentional, in a way we've never seen before.

Brilliant Sirius Black Although he was raised by staunch blood purists, Sirius Black was a fierce opponent of Lord Voldemort and his followers. He was eventually killed by his cousin, the Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange, while fighting alongside the Order of the Phoenix in the Department of Mysteries.
"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."
Constance Pickering
Kreacher WU
Kreacher A House-elf in service to the Black family, Kreacher kept the secret of Regulus Black's betrayal of Voldemort — revealing the truth only to aid Harry Potter's search for Voldemort's Horcruxes.

Troll Leg Umbrella Stand WU
Troll-leg umbrella stand This grotesque piece of decor was crafted from the severed leg of a troll. It was one of the many macabre elements of the Black family home at 12 Grimmauld Place.

Portrait of Phineas Nigellus WU
Portrait of Phineas Nigellus As a former Headmaster of Hogwarts and patriarch of the Black family, Phineas Nigellus Black had portraits hanging in both Hogwarts School and 12 Grimmauld Place. The dual paintings allowed him free movement between the two locations, making his portrait a useful messenger between Hogwarts and the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix.
"Phineas Nigellus Black... famously terrible headmaster of Hogwarts. Hmm. He was long dead before any of this. This surge in the Calamity is baffing."

Phoenix Patronus WU
Phoenix Patronus The Patronus is a magical guardian that projects a positive force, repelling Dark creatures such as Dementors. Albus Dumbledore, renowned Headmaster of Hogwarts and founder of the Order of the Phoenix, was known to have a Phoenix Patronus.

Order of the Phoenix Photograph-foundable
Order of the Phoenix photograph Depicting the original Order of the Phoenix, this tattered photograph features a number of heroes and casualties from the First Wizarding War. Among those who tragically lost their lives or sanity are Fabian and Gideon Prewett, Frank and Alice Longbottom, and James and Lily Potter.
"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."
Constance Pickering
"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 Phineas 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?
"
Constance Pickering

Brilliant Ministry Atrium

"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 carly 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.

"If someone at the Ministry had to become a Foundable, it’s better, I suppose, for it to be someone who has already come to terms with it. Honestly, it’s rather awful.

It doesn’t hurt, but you feel a stifling sense of something missing from you and, until it is returned, you cannot put your finger on what itis. I hope you never have to endure it.

Brilliant Nimbus 2000 Before its untimely destruction by the Whomping Willow, this racing broom belonged to Harry Potter, who flew it while playing Seeker for Gryffindor.
"One of the Gryffindor Chasers owns an old Nimbus 2000 and feared that her broom would vanish or weaken as a result of becoming a Foundable.

I assured her that the Foundable in question was almost certainly the broom of a former, famous student...

Brilliant Angelina Johnson WU
Brilliant Angelina Johnson Angelina Johnson was the Captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team in her seventh year. A talented flyer and strategist, she was admired amongst her peers.
"Miss Johnson — er, Mrs. Weasley, now — could attest to the pride of winning the Quidditch Cup for her house. I have no doubt that, like many students, she will be dismayed to learn of its absence."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Trophy Case WU
Brilliant Trophy Case The Hogwarts Quidditch trophy case contains centuries of plaques dedicated to victories past and players long since graduated.
Brilliant James Potter Plaque WU
Brilliant James Potter Plaque One of many such plaques in the Hogwarts School Trophy Room, this one features James Potter as a member of the Gryffindor Quidditch team.
"Seeing this old plaque really drives home the weight of history tied to Quidditch at Hogwarts. So many generations of young witches and wizards united in tradition..."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Nearly Headless Nick WU
Brilliant Nearly Headless Nick Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, or Nearly Headless Nick, was a wizard who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. He is the resiednt ghost of Gryffindor Tower.
"I've been meaning to ask Sir Nicholas his perspective on the Calamity. Being somewhat separated from his original self, he may have some fascinating insights into Foundables."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Inter-House Quidditch Cup WU
Brilliant Inter-House Quidditch Cup The Inter-House Quidditch Cup is awarded yearly at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to the House Quidditch team with the most total points.
"Oh, you've done it! You've returned the cup to Hogwarts. Very well done, indeed."
Minerva McGonagall
"The Quidditch Cup is such an important symbol of Hogwarts’ history and traditions. I believe that I speak for all of the staff and students when I say that we cannot thank you enough for returning the cup to us.

If you happen to be in the area, I'd be pleased if you would join us for the final match of the season!
"
Minerva McGonagall

Brilliant Quidditch Announcer's Boot

"Ah, there you are. I'm afraid that I must ask for your help again.

The final match of the Quidditch season approaches, and excitement has reached fever pitch. Not unexpectedly more Quidditch-related Foundables are turning up.

Concern is growing that holding the final match could endanger the students. Some are calling for it to be canceled.

Tn fact, canceling the match could only make matters worse — disappointed students would certainly focus the Calamity’s attention.

What do you say will you help me shut down this Calamity surge and save our Quidditch season?

Brilliant Quidditch Fan Luna Lovegood WU
Brilliant Quidditch Fan Luna Lovegood In a pivotal Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Slytherin, Luna's preference was made clear by her lion-shaped hat, which would roar defiantly at passing Slytherin players.
"Miss Lovegood — Mrs. Seamander, now. I suppose — has offered to write to the board of governors and let them know that she’s suffering no major effects from being a Foundable.

It’s uncomfortable, yes, but less hazardous than the average Quidditch match or Care of Magical Creatures class!
"
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Bludger WU
Brilliant Bludger A Bludger is a black iron ball used in the wizarding sport of Quidditch. There are two Bludgers used in every match, which are bewitched to fly around and try to knock the players off their broomsticks, often with extreme force.
"One of the Gryffindor Beaters expressed concern that the school’s Bludgers might be affected by the Calamity. I assured her that they will be every bit as vicious as usual. Madam Hooch will no doubt make sure of it."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Gryffindor Beater WU
Brilliant Gryffindor Beater The Beater's job is to keep Bludgers away from one's teammates and, whenever possible, send them hurtling toward rival players.
"Gryffindor has had a fine showing this season, despite some injuries. It would be most unfortunate if their hard work came to naught because of the Calamity."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Slytherin Chaser WU
Brilliant Slytherin Chaser Chaser control the Quaffle and attempt to get it through the goal hoops past the Keeper in order to score points for their team.
"The Slytherin team deserves recognition for their success this season. However — and I'm sure that they would agree — one final match is necessary to determine which team should be considered the most successful."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Quidditch Score-Keeper WU
Brilliant Quidditch Score-Keeper The enchanted score-keeper is used by the Quidditch announcer to track the points scored in a game.
"The Inner-house Quidditch competition has been a Hogwarts tradition for hundreds of years, uniting the houses in sportsmanship."
Minerva McGonagall
Brilliant Quidditch Fan McGonagall WU
Brilliant Quidditch Fan McGonagall An avid fan of Quidditch, Professor McGonagall attempts to attend every match and cheer on the players — particularly those on the Gryffindor team.
"You know how seriously I take this Calamity and the safety of Hogwarts' students. If canceling Quidditch would protect them, I'd do that in a heartbeat...

However, cancelling the match could be far more dangerous — the disappointment from the students would actually attract the Calamity to them.
"
Minerva McGonagall
"Thanks to the hard work of the SOS Task Force, I'm pleased to report that the Calamity surge is winding down and the final Quidditch match went off without a hitch.

I know it seems like such a frivolous thing to worry about at a time like this, but we cannot underestimate the power of friendship and tradition to give us strength in times of need.
"
Minerva McGonagall

Brilliant SOS Task Force Office I

"Hmm. I was just looking at my notes... Do you realize that we have reached one full year since Grim Fawley cast his spell and started this nightmare?"
Hermione Granger
"It seems so much longer ago..."
Constance Pickering
"Apparently time does not fly in the midst of a crisis. And guess what else? There's yet ANOTHER surge to contend with...

I used to look at these surges as a chance for hints about the Calamity in the hope of someday taming it... Now? It just seems like the spell is mocking us.

Brilliant Proprietor Ron Weasley WU
Brilliant Proprietor Ron Weasley After a brief career as an Auror, Ron left Ministry of Magic and joined his brother George in running the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes joke shop. However, he maintained close ties with the Ministry and joined the SOS Task Force when the Calamity stuck.
"Hermione? Can you explain something to me? Why do I feel like I've had a conversation with Grim Fawley?"
Ron Weasley
"You used to have many with him, Ron. You were friends."
Hermione Granger
"Well, I didn't have this one! He was trying to convince me that he's been imprisoned for over a year."
Ron Weasley
"That's just silly..."
Hermione Granger
"Tell me about it! I wonder if this whole stupid Calamity is now finding its way into my dreams. I feel like I'm cracking up."
Ron Weasley
Brilliant Auror Harry Potter WU
Brilliant Auror Harry Potter Following the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry joined the Auror department at just seventeen years of age. He quickly climbed the ranks at the department — and when the Calamity stuck, he contributed his efforts to the SOS Task Force.
"So this is odd. I feel like I always do when a Foundable torn from me is returned... less anxious... except...

I have a distinct recollection of a conversation with Grim Fawley, and he's telling me that he's been held captive this past year...
"
Harry Potter
"Well, that’s quite impossible, isn’t it?"
Hermione Granger
"I mean, yes — I never had that conversation with him, obviously. But it feels so bloody real..."
Harry Potter
"I don't wonder if having all these Foundable torn from us will have some after-effects... Maybe this is one? False memories...?"
Hermione Granger
SOS Dark Detectors
Brilliant Activated Dark Detector Like other forms of Dark Detector, these are designed to expose danger or concealment — with a particular emphasis on revealing hidden Traces.
"I'm told that Minister Shacklebolt himself invented these Calamity-focused Dark Detectors in just a few hours... we're very lucky to have his brilliant leadership during this crisis."
Constance Pickering
Brilliant Crate of Potions WU
Brilliant Crate of Potions As part of their work in combating the Calamity. the Statute of Secrecy Task Force is charged with developing new potions to aid in such activities as returning Foundables and defeating Foes.
"Do you realize that since the start of the Calamity, the Ministry has confirmed that nearly a BILLION potions have been consumed by Task Force members? Well, actually 763,263,276 — but that’s almost a billion! Incredible!"
Constance Pickering
Brilliant Opened Portkey WU
Brilliant Opened Portkey This Portmanteau has been ulocked and the Portkey inside removed for further study by the SOS Task Force, in an effort to determine why the Calamity focuses on particular locations.
"You know, they're one of the things I've most admired about the Calamity spell, those Portmanteaus... Amazing attention to detail, to invent something mechanical like that."
Constance Pickering
Ministry of Magic Landmark Flag
Brilliant Ministry of Magic Landmark Flag Landmark Banners denote areas of high Trace activity from specific Foundable Families. The connection between Family and location is an area of intense study within the SOS Task Force.
"I don’t know if you're aware, but after I suggested using banners to identify areas of high Family concentration, my boyfriend, Lucas Sparrowvale, spent six months traveling the world and placing them. How's that for dedication?

Someday, I may have him home to meet mum.
"
Constance Pickering
"This particular surge seems incredibly specific, doesn't it? Focusing almost exclusively on the SOS Task Force... Why?"
Hermione Granger
"I wonder if me and Ron having the same exact memory is a coincidence? It almost feels like the Calamity is trying to speak to us..."
Harry Potter
"Don’t be daft, Harry. Spells can’t speak..."
Hermione Granger
"Spell casters can, though. We don’t yet know enough to be sure... But this surge feels very different than any of the others before it."
Harry Potter

Brilliant SOS Task Force Office II

"Harry is fairly convinced this surge is different from the others. Myself? I am a tad more sceptical.

But there is no debate that this recent surge has changed and become suddenly more focused on the Ministry itself. There has to be SOME reason for that...

But what is it?

Brilliant Senior Minister Hermione Granger WU
Brilliant Senior Minister Hermione Granger After several years of success in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, Hermione Granger moved to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. When the Calamity struck, she lent her expertise to the Statute of Secrecy Task Force.
"I now understand what Ron and Harry were going on about — I also have a new memory of speaking with Grim, coinciding with my recent experience as a Foundable...

It’s like I've been left a message in the form of a hazy, unclear memory. It's not perfect but...

This is vital! Grim Fawley is reaching out to us after over a year in absentia. Incredible!
"
Hermione Granger
KingsleyWU
Brilliant Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt Appointed after the Battle of Hogwarts, Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt worked to reform the Ministry from the inside, dismantling archaic pro-pureblood laws. Kingsley personally appointed Harry Potter to his position as Head of the Auror department.
"I ran across Minister Shacklebolt the other day — he told me something rather shocking. HE has a memory similar to Harry and Ron’s.

Except in his, Grim was saying that he had gained some ability to manipulate the Calamity... to "guide" what it steals as Foundables.

It really feels like we've finally made some kind of breakthrough!
"
Constance Pickering
SOS runestones
Pile of Runestones Collected by members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, these Runestones are being studied for their connection to Calamity-created Fortresses.
"We've long known that the Runestone’s Family corresponds with that of the Foundable you return after a Wizarding Challenge — but we still don’t know why.

Why require Runestones to enter a Fortress at all? There are so many questions I would love to ask Grim Fawley...
"
Constance Pickering
Registry Research Board
Registry Research Board The Calamity has caused new fields of research to crop up in various departments of the Ministry. This board concerns the classification of Foundables into Families.
"The Registry is the Task Force’s creation, but the underlying organisation is inherent in the Calamity itself...

In other words, we didn’t sort Foundables into Families; the Calamity did. We just put names to those Families.

The whole Family "thing" has always struck me as curiously methodical for such a chactic spell. But Grim Fawley is said to have a highly organised mind.
"
Constance Pickering
Calamity Incident Map
Calamity Incident Map This enchanted map tracks all known Calamity activity across the globe. Updated in real time with reports from Task Force members, the map enables the Ministry to actively monitor the Calamity situation.
"Now the Calamity is creating Foundables of our attempt to track the Calamity’s creation of Foundables. It’s almost like the Calamity is self-aware — and taking the mickey out of us."
Constance Pickering
Brilliant Junior Undersecretary Constance Pickering WU
Brilliant Junior Undersecretary Constance Pickering Although her time with the Ministry has been brief, Constance Pickering has proved herself at the Department of Magical Law Enforcement through her work with Senior Mimister Granger on the SOS Task Forece.
"Grim Fawley reached out to me! I mean, I think he did. It is definitely some sort of strange message, wrapped in a memory I never had.

He's telling me that he isn't responsible for all of this. It WAS his spell, but he isn't at fault...
"
Constance Pickering
"Well, that surge is over — but what a surge it was! Grim Fawley can reach out fo us — perhaps to any of us at any time... It’s very exciting."
Hermione Granger
"Hermione... before you get too excited, it might be worthwhile to consider something... Grim can communicate with us, right?"
Harry Potter
"Yes..."
Hermione Granger
"And he did a LOT of communicating. He told us he can manipulate the Calamity Spell to some degree, that he has been imprisoned for a year, and that he is innocent... But he left the most important thing out.

He didn’t tell us how to end this, did he? Or whose fault it was. I think we tread very lightly moving forward. None of us knows what he is really on about, do we?
"
Harry Potter

Brilliant Hagrid's Hut Interior

"Constance, the Ministry's internal Calamity Management Team reported that there appears to be yet another surge in Calamity activity. And it's rather ominous. The Calamity is focused almost exclusively on snatching baby beasts."
Hermione Granger
"Baby beasts? How dreadful!"
Constance Pickering
"It's horrid. Grim can't be behind this, can he? Stealing baby beasts is incredibly irresponsible. We don't know what kind of harm becoming a Foundable can do to an innocent baby."
Hermione Granger
"I can't imagine he'd do something so irresponsible... Of course, he probably did start the Calamity..."
Constance Pickering
"We need to return the babies as quickly as possible. There's no time to lose."
Hermione Granger
Images Name Description Remarks
Brilliant Baby Norwegian Ridgeback WU
Brilliant Baby Norwegian Ridgeback The Norwegian Ridgeback Dragon is most physically similar to the Hungarian Horntail, differing primarily due to its eponymous black ridges. It has venomous fangs and feed on large land and water mammals (unusual for a Dragon). Infants are known for their quick aptitude for fire-breathing.
"I remember once as a girl my family took me to a Dragon sanctury in Norway. We got to see the babies up close and one of those little gits bit my finger. Hurt for a month."
Constance Pickering
Brilliant Baby Niffler WU
Brilliant Baby Niffler Nifflers are adorable hoarders of anything shiny. Do not be fooled however, their fur and friendly demeanor hide an incredible urge to steal. Inadvisable as pets due to their tendency to burrow, they are regularly deployed be the Curse-Breakers at Gringotts.
"I always wanted a baby Niffler. They're apparently nearly impossible to train, but someday I daresay I might try. I think they're divine."
Constance Pickering
Baby Niffler Cage WU
Baby Niffler Cage Nifflers, despite their cute appearance as infants, are notoriously hard to keep in one place. They have been known to slip through even the smallest point of egress. To this end it is advised strongly to keep them in an enchanted cage and distracted with gold as seen here.
"Strange. That is a very specific cage. I've seen ones like it in Jakarta — in the black market — they sell baby animals there and it's all very appalling... Why would the Calamity steal a black market display cage? It just doesn't seem to fit."
Hermione Granger
"Could it be a message? You know, like the ones Grim sent during the last surge?"
Constance Pickering
"It's possible, Constance... But if it is a message, what is he saying?"
Hermione Granger
Augurey Baby WU
Augurey Baby The Augurey, known also as the Irish-Phoenix, is a shy magical bird with black-green feathers. Despite their timid nature many Wizards over the years have raised Augurey as life-long companions. Newt Scamander famously rescued an Augurey named Patrick.
"Why is it that all creatures have cute babies — except for birds? They're all hideous, and if one seems cute it's because it's actually so hideous you feel bad for it and start finding it cute out of guilt. It's weird."
Constance Pickering
Baby Crup WU
Baby Crup The Crup is almost identical to a standard Jack Russell Terrier, expect for its distinctive forked tail. They are particularly aggressive toward Muggles and extremely loyal to Wizards, making them popular pets. Crups are great scavengers, known for their capacity to eat almost anything. Groups of Crups are called a "pack".
"Did you know I once had a Crup called Ross? I did. But we had to give him away when my brother turned out to be a squib and Ross just wouldn't stop nipping his bum. Scarred my brother for life.
I miss Ross.
"
Constance Pickering
Baby Knarl WU
Baby Knarl Knarls resemble a common garden Hedgehog in such an indistinguishable manner that they live in most Muggle gardens. Knarls differ only in the way they react to gifts. While it is common practice to leave a saucer of milk as a gift to a Hedgehog, doing the same for a Knarl will result in the destruction of the owner's garden. Many a Muggle child has been wrongly accused of this Knarl-caused destruction.
"As a child we lived next door to this Muggle girl, Silvia. I convinced her that hedgehogs loved it when you gave left them snacks overnight. She left out a plate and and the next day her garden was destroyed. I felt so gulilty! Top ten childhood regret."
Constance Pickering
"We've tamped down the surge a bit — for now. But I've been thinking about that Niffler cage... Perhaps this entire surge is a message from Grim? It is so incredibly specific."
Hermione Granger
"All the creatures the surge focused on are incredibly valuable — even the Augurey is in demand... Maybe there's a hint in there somewhere?"
Constance Pickering
"Perhaps... I just can't imagine what it is..."
Hermione Granger
"Regardless, it might be worth spending some time thinking... We have a few days to connect the dots before the inevitable “second surge” comes in. If Grim is sending us a message, what is it?"
Constance Pickering

Brilliant Black Lake Shore

"A second Calamity surge is starting — similar to the first, focused solely around baby beasts... It just all seems so incredibly specific... Moreso than any other surge we've encountered. The more I think about it, the more I am convinced this is a message from Grim."
Hermione Granger
"But what is he saying? Is he being held in a zoo? Or an animal sanctuary?"
Constance Pickering
"Or a suitcase, like Newt Scamander's? I have literally no idea. We should keep trying to solve that little mystery while we return these babies to their rightful places. If this is a message from Grim Fawley, it's wrapped in a rather cruel package!"
Hermione Granger

Brilliant Baby Hippogriff WU
Brilliant Baby Hippogriff Baby Hippogriff are remarkable in the wizarding world for their fast hatching time and ability to fly from an early age. They proud creatures and can be quite dangerous when untamed. If looking to have one as a pet or companion, some advise starting when Hippogriff is young — when they are more likely to accept and embrace your presence willingly.
"Hmmm. I don't know if this is a coincidence, but I remember reading a recent Ministry report that the Forbidden Forest had seen an uptick in Hippogriff poaching... I think I'll check into that..."
Constance Pickering
Brilliant Baby Unicorn WU
Brilliant Baby Unicorn Baby Unicorn could, one some rare occasions, be found in and around the Forbidden Forest at Hogwarts Castle. They reside throughout Europe, living peaceful lives in forests. Baby Unicorn are a Golden color and at a distance their lack of a horn could allow them to be mistaken for an ordinary foal.
"I don't know if you knew this, but the Unicorn is my Patronus. I simply love them. The babies are so adorable!"
Constance Pickering
Baby Demiguise WU
Baby Demiguise Elusive and nigh-impossible to catch except by those specifically trained to act unpredictably. The Baby Demiguise highly resembles its adult counterpart (except for being significantly smaller). Given their tiny size, invisibility and precognitive sight, infants can be one of the hardest creatures to document for any Magizoologist. They are, however, surprisingly friendly under the correct circumstances.
"Demiguise are rare and impossibly hard to trap — they are the most desired, non-lethal fantastic beasts in black market-circles...
A lot of these babies are from species that are sought after...
"
Constance Pickering
Baby Grindylow WU
Baby Grindylow Baby Grindylow, sometimes known as "Grypts" in their infant form, are less aggressive than their full grown counterparts. As Grindylow age they become more dangerous and are not to be trifled with. They are not recommended as pets.
"Interesting. Some wizards harvest Grindylow young as a delicacy. It's entirely illegal, absolutely vomitous and happens only in the shadows of the wizarding world..."
Constance Pickering
"All the creatures is this surge — and the last — have historically been subject to illegal, black market trafficking... That may be the connection. But why is Grim telling us this?"
Hermione Granger
"Perhaps he's being held by black marketeers?"
Constance Pickering
"Perhaps... I think I need involve some members of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement into our research. There is definietely something here."
Hermione Granger
Baby Horned Serpent WU
Baby Horned Serpent

This is the infant of the North American Horned Serpent. At this early stage the Horns have yet to curl round and behind the serpents' skull. The young serpents are fast and easily mistaken at a glance for normal snakes. Also of note is their prized jewels have only just begun to harden out of their scales into precious gems.

"This baby serpent has a jewel in it's head — so it's probably from North America. I wonder if this is another in-demand breed?"
Constance Pickering
Giant Squid Tentacle WU
Giant Squid Tentacle Giant Squids are known to the Muggle community, but their magical nature remains hidden to this day. A semi-domesticated Giant Squid inhabits the Black Lake on the grounds of Hogwarts Castle. Many rumors have sprung up over the years regarding this unusual Squid, most of which are untrue or exaggerated. His presence in the fresh water lake is testament to his magical nature.
"Giant Squid tentacles are delicious, but they're hard to find because you can't hunt Giant Squ
