CURRENT SITE PLOT ! LAST UPDATED: February 3rd, 2020
TERM SIXTEEN September 2207 - August 2208 In the aftermath of the Death Eater General's identity having been revealed, all seemed quiet. Hogwarts resumed classes and the Wizarding World made attempts to rebuild in the wake of tragedy. For a moment, it seemed as though the Ministry of Magic and the Order of the Phoenix had been able to push the Death Eaters back to where they came. In October of 2207, the Ministry was tipped off about movement from their opposing forces. A red herring in nature, the true attack was to take place as the Falmouth Falcons faced off against the Quiberon Quafflepunchers at a packed stadium during a televised event. The realization of their reach caused a new wave of terror. In December, Graham Morrison of Morrison & Kline partnered with Ashton Fuller to get all charges dropped against her by proving Ronan Deegan to be an unreliable witness. With Ashton off the hook, she began to gather her intel for the next big strike. The Viper was coming for Minister of Magic, Dalla Cilda. While tensions flared between the warring factions, a new visionary from the Temple of Xolotl arrived in the United Kingdom, causing a stir in the Wizarding Underground.

TERM ONE September 2192 - August 2193 An Increase in discrimination against werewolves and vampires led to an eruption of violent attacks that made headlines. Due to pressure from the public to seek justice, Mistress of Magic Isabelle Joelton convinced the Wizengamot to pass new laws which greatly restricted the rights of werewolves and vampires. Infuriated by this, violence from the groups increased and they began to fight amongst themselves. The situation came to a head when the two groups invaded the Ministry of Magic and killed many people, including Mistress Joelton. Amidst the chaos, the Death Eaters reformed under the dual leadership of Victoire and Valerie Beaumont and made their presence known to the world by unleashing a series of vicious attacks.
TERM TWO September 2193 - August 2194 The Ministry of Magic responded to the increasing violence from werewolves and vampires by further stripping them of their rights and using more more forceful tactics to quell riots. Senior Ministry officials appointed Siren Krum the Mistress of Magic, whose near-psychotic behavior only made matters worse. Oliver Cromwell, the head of the Auror Department as well as Headmaster of Hogwarts, vowed to do everything in his power to restore order. However, he suddenly disappeared before much could be done. Not long after, it was revealed that he was murdered by Victoire and Valerie Beaumont during a fierce battle in Italy, where he had taken an elite force of aurors to invade what they believed was the Death Eaters Headquarters. Terror rose even further, and people began to lose hope that peace would ever be restored. Meanwhile in secret, Cromwell—who had faked his own death—resurrected the Order of the Phoenix, and the group began to covertly gather followers.
TERM THREE September 2194 - August 2195 Through inside operatives working for the government, the Death Eaters managed to place an Imperius Curse on Mistress Siren Krum, successfully and secretly taking over the Ministry of Magic. They used the mass confusion as a cover and formally announced that Valerie Beaumont was to be named the Headmistress of Hogwarts. Death Eaters stormed the castle on the first day of the new term; the school was put on lockdown all year, and everyone was to follow malicious and militant new rules. Countless people were tortured, including students, and some were even murdered in cold blood. A group of students who wished to show their support for the new regime sprung up in secret from the professors, calling themselves the Junior Death Eaters. While naturally not as powerful as their vicious adult counterparts, they added to the mayhem surrounding Hogwarts by tormenting their fellow students for fun and aiding the Death Eaters with secrets about the castle and student body. In retaliation, Rita Pearl and several there brave students formed the Hogwarts Warriors to combat the Death Eaters from the inside. At the end of the year, Oliver Cromwell revealed to the world that he had faked his death, and the Order of the Phoenix took back Hogwarts in a fierce battle.
TERM FOUR September 2195 - August 2196 Ashamed by their defeat, the Death Eaters regrouped outside of the United Kingdom, but tension among the group members was on the rise. The loss of Hogwarts was not a complete failure, however: they still had Mistress of Magic Siren Krum under the Imperius Curse. The Death Eaters slowly began a conquest to take over foreign ministries. Meanwhile. the vampires and werewolves grew restless and desperate for action, feeling that they had been discriminated against for too long. They began to organize themselves into resistance groups under the leadership of Vivian Morgan and Cain Gevaudan respectively. The Order of the Phoenix, under the impression that they had only crippled the Death Eaters, began searching the entire continent in vain so that they might finish them off. The residents of Hogwarts, caught in the aftermath of a dictatorship, slowly began to pick up the broken pieces and reverse the damage that had been done to the school and to themselves. Allegra Hawthorne, a former senior Ministry official and secret werewolf, was appointed to the position of Headmistress and vowed to repair the damage done.
TERM FIVE September 2196 - August 2197 The Ministry of Magic was invaded for a second time by the Werewolf and Vampire Resistances at the end of July. Their acts of violence had installed unmistakable terror in the hearts of every family in the country, and people were even afraid to walk down the street after twilight. During this battle, Mistress Siren Krum was murdered by Vivian Morgan and Cain Gevaudan, who both subsequently went on the run. The Death Eaters' last hold on the Ministry of Magic was severed, and it appeared by now that they were going to fade from existence. The Order of the Phoenix failed to find them, and indeed believed that they had finished the group off at the battle for Hogwarts a few months prior. In truth, the Death Eaters were still very much thriving, scheming wickedly for plans to come that would rock the world and cause devastation like nothing before.
TERM SIX September 2197 - August 2198 In need of a new Minister of Magic, the country held a formal election which highlighted both the best and worst of the wizarding world. The three candidates were Annexxe van Cook, assistant head auror and member of the Order of the Phoenix; Dalla Cilda, longtime head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement; and Pierre Delacroix, covert Death Eater and husband to Victoire Beaumont. Tensions rose as everyone anxiously awaited the news of who won the election. It was announced that Pierre Delacroix would become the new Minister of Magic, secretly giving control of the Ministry of Magic to the Death Eaters once more. Subsequently, prominent members of the government, among them Oliver Cromwell and Dalla Cilda, were framed for treason and sent to Azkaban Prison. Vivian Morgan and Cain Gevaudan, former leaders of the Resistances, were both tracked down and murdered. Just before the christmas holiday in 2197, the Death Eaters invaded the school once again; they murdered Headmistress Allegra Hawthorne and retook control of the school in the chaos. The rules were exactly as strict as the invasion before. The most notable difference was that Victoire Beaumont herself became Headmistress, with Valerie Beaumont as her deputy. Several professors were murdered and students were again exposed to torture that was magnified stronger than ever.
TERM SEVEN September 2198 - August 2199 Students were not permitted to return home for summer break at the end of the term. The Ministry of Magic, secretly under control of the Death Eaters, issued a falsified statement that the school was under quarantine due to a plague and no-one would be permitted to leave until a cure was found. This ensured that the students, recent graduates, and professors remained prisoners of the Death Eaters. Victoire Beaumont brought back the Triwizard Tournament in a twisted way, selecting one student from each Hogwarts House to be forced to compete in the Quadwizard Tournament. Minister of Magic Pierre Delacroix, now ruling unopposed after throwing anyone who might challenge him in prison, began a series of reforms that further oppressed the rights of werewolves and vampires, and ordered that mudbloods and halfbloods be imprisoned and punished for stealing magic from real wizards. In the absence of the Order of the Phoenix's leader, second-in-command Annexxe van Cook took reigns of the organization and led an underground movement to recruit forces for a revolution. The group forged a temporary alliance with the Resistances to eliminate the corrupt government. But they did not succeed soon enough: the final task of the Tournament was a trap, and student Alcatraz Kennedy was cruelly murdered by the controlling Death Eaters. Angela Selwyn, the secret leader of the Junior Death Eaters, was also murdered by Beaumont in cold blood. As her status as the Junior Death Eater leader was unknown, her death alongside Kennedy's served to make the student body paranoid about who would be next. While the Vampire Resistance led an attack on the Ministry of Magic itself, the Order and the Werewolves invaded Azkaban Prison and liberated Oliver Cromwell, Dalla Cilda, and others who had been wrongly imprisoned for over a year. The groups then headed for Scotland and fought a bloody battle at Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. It was during this battle that Oliver Cromwell defeated Beaumont: the wizarding world was finally freed from the grasp of the Death Eaters, who retreated and fled to parts unknown.
TERM EIGHT September 2199 - August 2200 In the wake of a terrible year that saw many tragedies, the people demanded a new Minister after Pierre Delacroix had shown his true colors. Delacroix fled the country before he could face persecution. Within two weeks 2199 Battle of Hogwarts, head of Magical Law Enforcement Dalla Cilda was declared the new Mistress of Magic. Oliver Cromwell, left crippled after his duel with Victoire Beaumont, ended his career as an auror and took Cilda's place in Magical Law Enforcement. Annexxe Van Cook, the hero of the Order who helped bring an end to the Death Eater's regime, became the new Head of the Auror Office and Headmaster of Hogwarts. The changes in regime restored some of the people's faith in their broken government. Minister Cilda, known for being an advocate of werewolf rights, immediately began the legal proceedings to repeal the Werewolf Restriction Laws. She argued that the alliance the Werewolf Resistance's leader had made to help the Wizarding World in its time of need could not be ignored. Meanwhile in the shadows of England, a revolution sparked within the Vampire Resistance that resulted in the death of Lucille Monroe, and her demise marked the end of any hope at peace with the wizards or the werewolves.
TERM NINE September 2200 - August 2201 Tensions rose to a new high as the newborn alliance between the Werewolf Resistance and the Ministry of Magic was tested in the wake of Lucille Monroe's murder. Nobody knew for sure who had killed her, but people were blaming the werewolves for turning back on their word and betraying the alliances they had forged. In an effort to ensure that no betrayal had been committed, the Werewolf Resistance leader kept a tight leash on all of the werewolves under his control to ensure that the incident could be contained and dealt with diplomatically. The Vampire Resistance on the other hand suddenly vanished off the radar, causing panic now that Monroe was not in charge to keep the group in line. In December 2200, multiple bombs were set off throughout London that destroyed landmarks including Big Ben, the Millennium Bridge; the charms that concealed Diagon Alley, St. Mungo's, and the Ministry were broken and the buildings set ablaze. The incidents were barely contained, straining relations between Dalla Cilda and the Muggle Prime Minister. To this day nobody knows who was responsible, but whoever was behind the attacks forever exposed the Wizarding World to the muggles as broadcasts all around the world covered the attacks. Massive construction began immediately in Hogsmeade, and all major wizarding businesses relocated to the village. The Ministry of Magic relocated to an underground facility in Manchester. Though the Werewolf Restriction Laws were overturned, the United Kingdom was not ready to forgive the Werewolves for their sins in light of the recent events. The former leader of the Werewolf Resistance took his clan of werewolves and left the country; not long after, the body of the Vampire Resistance leader was found, and the resistance groups were never heard from again. With the decade-long war against the Resistance Movements finally over, the Ministry could finally focus their attention on the escalating crisis with the Muggles. During the massive changes in the wizarding world, mass-murderer Zachary Trueman was lured to an abandoned warehouse where Annexxe van Cook and Daemien Love ambushed him. In the fight, van Cook was tragically killed, but not before be mortally wounded Trueman. After a Gryffindor boy named Adam Thorne was found dead on the grounds of Hogwarts with the Dark Mark branded on his arm, the country began to worry if anywhere was safe anymore.
TERM TEN September 2201 - August 2202 It was soon revealed that Valerie Beaumont had appointed a new leader of the Death Eaters before her death, a confidante named Ffion Griffin whom few in the group had ever met. Under the guise of Vanessa Kendrick, she took control of the group and slowly began to gather forces across Europe. In their constant struggle to end the Death Eater organization, the Order of the Phoenix attempted a raid on the ruins of Diagon Alley. It was mostly unsuccessful, with only one Death Eater taken into custody; she escaped soon after. Viral videos of the 2200 attacks continued to circle the internet. Most of these were the work of Kyle West, a muggle from Ireland who was determined to reveal the truth of magic. She was contacted by muggleborn witch Annabelle Marlow, and shortly after meeting the two formed the Muggle Rebellion. Between Annabelle's wealth and Kyle's knowledge of the internet, they were quickly able to gain members who also wanted to expose magic. In October 2201, an anonymous attacker abducted Emily Grey from the grounds of Hogwarts. Many suspected the Death Eaters, but there was little proof or reasoning; the Death Eaters themselves were ignorant to the identity of the assailant. The aurors exhausted every lead to find the missing girl, but Grey's mutilated body was found in Hogsmeade Square in February 2202. Joanna Grey, an inventor and Emily's mother, began working on a magic-canceling device in her grief, hoping to protect others from meeting the same fate if she was successful. The anonymous killer continued terrorizing the school, abducting and murdering Pavel Koshalev. A botched abduction within the castle nearly resulted in the killer being caught when Freddy Hart was killed before the assailant could escape with him. While all of this was happening, Marlow took advantage of her friendship with Joanna Grey and stole the blueprints for the Anti-Magical Device to aid the Rebellion's cause.
TERM ELEVEN September 2202 - August 2203 While no-one was aware of the Death Eaters' continuing influence, they continued to reach out across Europe and conquer countries for their cause. Much more prominent was the anonymous killer, who began to deviate from their pattern of only killing students when Hogwarts librarian Blayne Campbell was the next to be abducted. This shift in operation confused the aurors even more, and they were baffled when Campbell not only was returned to the school alive. Soon Headmistress Adrienne Kincaid herself was taken, returned in the same manner as Campbell over a month later. A Hogwarts Guard member stumbled across hiding place of Cordelia Alywin, a recent graduate of Hogwarts; Aylwin was arrested as the anonymous killer, and the wizarding world celebrated what they thought was a victory. However, Aylwin was unable to reveal anything about her actions or her plans, and it was learned that she was under a Fidelus Charm and that there might be another killer out there. Meanwhile, the Muggle Rebellion was facing challenges as some members were more interested in eradicating magic altogether than spreading awareness. In January 2203, Aiden St. James staged a coup and took over the rebellion after Annabelle Marlow revealed she was a witch, effectively forcing her out of the group. Under his direction the group became more militant, training in weapon use and preparing to storm the Ministry itself. The underground groups continued to work in secret, letting the world believe they were safe, until in May thirteen bodies and one more living victim were found in Hogsmeade Square. Anonymous had abducted multiple victims without ever tipping off their families or the world that something was wrong, and it was confirmed at last that Aylwin had had a partner when she was found murdered in her room at St. Mungo's. A month later as the Rebellion entered the final preparations for its attack, Marlow went straight to Dalla Cilda and told her everything. Marlow was arrested for her crimes, and the Ministry prepared for the battle. Despite the muggles' use of Anti-Magical Devices, they managed to gain the upper hand and win the battle. Those muggles who survived had their memories wiped of all knowledge of magic, effectively ending the Rebellion. The anonymous killer was finally revealed to be Noelle Steele when she murdered the leader of the Death Eaters in Knockturn Alley. She was tried and sent to Nurmengard to rot for the rest of her days.
TERM TWELVE September 2203 - August 2204 Despite the attack from the radical Rebellion a few months prior, the Ministry of Magic began working to show more tolerance of muggles given that there was no going back to the Statute of Secrecy. They attempted to make the best of a bad situation, renaming several departments and creating others in the hopes of forging better relations between wizards and muggles. Following the murder of their leader Vanessa Kendrick, the Death Eaters found themselves in a bit of anarchy before long-time member Markus Pearl took control. He planned to quell descent and hesitations among the group, and continue accumulating countries throughout Europe before taking on the British Ministry of Magic itself. While their adult counterpart planned for these conquests, the Junior Death Eaters began to become more prominent at Hogwarts. Under the direction of Lourdes Falenas, they tortured and killed enough muggleborns and blood traitors to draw attention, though no-one knew of the group's name or true intentions. Skye Pearl, Markus's niece, set forth with her own agenda using a "nightmare potion." She dosed three students with varying strengths of the potion to test their effects, sending one to St. Mungo's when the nightmares just would not end. The Junior Death Eaters have a bigger endgame in mind, and it's only a matter of time before that makes itself known. In light of the Junior Death Eaters' growing influence, Annette Hayes began to cultivate the Hogwarts Warriors once again to fight against them should the time come. In March 2204, Adrienne Prewett stepped down as the Headmistress of Hogwarts rather suddenly when her son was born prematurely. In her absence, hit witch and former Ministry Protection Agent Jai Mitchell came to the school as the interim headmistress. Her background in law enforcement gave her the knowledge she needed to crack down on rule breaking and dangerous activity at the school.
TERM THIRTEEN September 2204 - August 2205 Without an appropriate candidate for headmaster, former Ministry Protection Agent Jai Mitchell continued to lead Hogwarts as interim headmistress. At the end of August 2204, during the Muggle Football World Cup event, the Death Eaters staged their biggest attack in recent memory, killing many muggles and wizards alike during halftime and bringing down a portion of the stadium itself. The Order of the Phoenix responded to the attack as best as they could, but there were many lives lost on all sides, and the Statute of Secrecy was rendered useless. The Ministry of Magic began working overtime to bring muggle and magical relations to a more peaceful standing, and in February 2205 the Statute of Secrecy was officially overturned. With representatives from the world's ministries and muggle governments behind her, United Kingdom Minister Dalla Cilda made the announcement in front of wizards and muggles alike. Many wizards did not embrace the change, however, and continued to keep their presence hidden from muggles out of fear of persecution or simple nonchalance. Jai Mitchell officially stepped down as Headmistress and appointed Zelda Koffi in her place, confident that the woman could maintain the level of safety that Mitchell had worked so hard to ensure. As an added measure, all Hogwarts employees were subject to be tested by veritaserum to weed out any potential threats to student body. During the changes in the wizarding world, Noelle Steele was found in Knockturn Alley, dead by a Killing Curse cast from her own wand.
TERM FOURTEEN September 2205 - August 2206 Hogwarts began the year with the announcement of the Doomspell Tournament, an inter-house competition with one boy and one girl champion from each of the four houses. After a series of four tasks spread throughout the school year, each more challenging than the last, Slytherin team Mitsuko Fitzsimmons and Jackson Pritchard were named the victors. Meanwhile, Landon Falenas began gathering followers within the Death Eaters to stage an uprising against Markus Pearl. While Pearl completed his own agenda, Falenas facilitated multiple strategic attacks on major muggle and wizarding locations, though no-one could prove that the Death Eaters were behind them. While the Death Eaters made their attacks, the Order of the Phoenix gained two new leaders: Ronan Deegan and Anderson Coetzee. Together, they hoped to push back against the opposing force. After Falenas made the final move to remove Pearl from his throne, the Falenas family began to turn on itself. Seeing an opportunity, Death Eater private Ashton Fuller reached out to Landon's sister Lourdes to offer a trade, which would see Fuller taking over the reins and Lourdes claiming her brother's life for herself. For months, they bided their time until opportunity knocked. In June 2206, the Death Eaters attacked St. Mungo’s Hospital in a show of power. Lourdes used that moment to take Landon down, leaving a power vacuum for Fuller to step into the role of Death Eater General. As she settled into her new role, she made it clear that where previous leaders had failed, Fuller intended to succeed.
TERM FIFTEEN September 2206 - August 2207 The wizarding world was still uneasy as the new term began at Hogwarts, with news of what happened at St. Mungo’s still fresh on everyone's minds. Ashton Fuller made herself comfortable in her new power, using fear tactics to gain the loyalty of many Death Eaters. In September 2206, the Death Eaters swarmed Azkaban Prison to free many of their own: they were met with resistance from the Ministry of Magic as well as the Order of the Phoenix. The fight that followed was a spectacle of not only magical prowess, but brute force as the Death Eaters showed no mercy, and they successfully released several prisoners from Azkaban in their wake. Following their victory at Azkaban, the Death Eaters attacked the offices of The Daily Prophet and The Quibbler in an attempt to silence the media regarding the increasing amount of attacks, but the Order had regrouped and was there to defend, this time with more success. In January 2206, the Order pushed back against the Death Eaters in a raid on Blood Garden, their mission to capture and question Death Eaters before wiping their memories and releasing them. Though they were able to gather some information, they did not anticipate that Agrippa Memorial Library would become the next location brutalized by Death Eater forces, leaving people to wonder what the next move might be and if the terror would ever end. In May 2207, Fuller's identity as the Death Eater General was revealed to Order Co-Commander Ronan Deegan, and she was forced to flee her job and go into hiding.
