Wizards Unite Characters
The wizarding world is a magical place, full of mysteries and wonders.
But no one can deny that its history has been shaped by its characters.
The founders four
Centuries ago, witches and wizards went underground to hide from Muggles. Since then, many have wanted to expose our world. They believe we are better than Muggles, and we should rule (or exterminate) them.
In fact, one of the Hogwarts Founders, Salazar Slytherin, was among them. He believed only those witches and wizards of pure blood were worthy of learning the intricacies of magic. It is important to mention, however, that the other three Founders did not share those same views.
It was largely because of these differences that Slytherin eventually left Hogwarts and his former friends. He did, however, also leave the Chamber of Secrets (and his basilisk) ready for someone else to take up the fight.
Grindelwald and Dumbledore
Many years later another dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, used similar logic in his attempt to bring down the Statute of Secrecy and allow witches and wizards to have control over Muggles.
It was only thanks to Albus Dumbledore that Grindelwald was stopped, after years of using his followers to murder Muggles and try to expose the wizarding kind.
The Wizarding Wars
In fact, Dumbledore played a large part in containing the First Wizarding War, decades later. He gathered witches and wizards who shared his same beliefs and founded the Order of the Phoenix to stop Voldemort and his many followers.
He continued his fight to protect the wizarding world, in fact, during the Second Wizarding War, when Voldemort returned. It was this fight that would ultimately cost him his life.
It was Harry Potter, along with the re-formed Order the Phoenix and Dumbledore’s Army, that finally put an end to Voldemort and the war in the historic Battle of Hogwarts.
Since then, the wizarding world has lived in peace, looking up to worthy figures who want the best for everyone.
That is, until The Calamity struck.
