2:08 am - Characters

dm_mod
This is the first draft of a full list of the cast. Any character mentioned in the books that seems relevant for this time period is welcome - they could be an author, Ministry worker, musician, Hogwarts graduate, etc. Just let me know where you pulled them from in the application, to avoid any confusion.

Characters in bold are needed for the main storyline, italicized names have been reserved, but may still be applied for, and grayed out names are non-playable characters. Names that are struck out means that character is taken, and a link to their journal can be found here when it is available.


Original character applications will be accepted after the most vital canon roles have been filled.
Sounds harsh, but we really must have the Order members and key Death Eaters filled first, or else there isn't much of a story to work with. To save everyone some trouble, there are some rules for applying as an original character.

12:06 am - The Story

dm_mod

In 1978, Voldemort returned to Britain in the form of bloody, unprovoked attacks on Muggles.

When the violence seeped into the wizarding world, the Ministry of Magic was careful to only show the public random crimes - a sad fact of life, not the work of a criminal mastermind that would, in one year, surpass the death toll of Grindelwald's reign of terror in the First War of the 1940's. The crimes quickly escalated, and when rumors spread that blood purity was the cause of the stir, people were outraged. There were protests in the Atrium of the Ministry and several students were pulled from Hogwarts, for fear of a "blood bias." There were riots in Diagon Alley, and constant meetings in the Wizengamot.

And then there was silence. Suddenly, witches and wizards were disappearing in droves, and if they were found, they were not found alive. It was not safe to complain to the Ministry, as there was a fear of spies within it. The Minister tried vainly to maintain a neutral stance during the early stages of Voldemort's return - just as it would years later in the Third War - but Ministry officials became the target of gruesome attacks, and it became evident that no one was safe. Who was preying on Muggles and wizards alike? What could witches and wizards to do protect themselves?
