History

Background information

After Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters managed to break the protective enchantments around Hogwarts Castle, the Battle of Hogwarts began. While the giants struggled with the betwitched suits of armour in the Viaduct, the Death Eaters started casting curses at the Viaduct Courtyard and at the battlements around The Quad.[1]

The skirmish

As part of the battlements shattered, a Death Eater managed to Apparate into the set of catwalks on which Order of the Phoenix members aimed spells. The Death Eater shot a Killing Curse, killing a wizard, and then started duelling with Arthur Weasley. As another Death Eater tried to Apparate through one of the windows, Kingsley Shacklebolt shot a spell that made him freeze in mid-air and shot back through the window.[1]

Aftermath

Apparently, the Order of the Phoenix side managed to hold the Death Eaters, as they did not seem to have managed to penetrate the Castle.[1] This was until the Death Eaters led their giants to the north battlements and breached in.[2]
