Halloween invites Six More ritualistic Killings & the Deathly Hallows

By: Selevas Amagus

As families sat around their fireplace’s drinking butterbeer and eating treacle tarts this Halloween, The Prophet received owl that another mass ritualistic murder took place on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Yet again, the bodies of six Wizards and Witches were found arranged just outside the main hallway entrance in a hexagonal pattern, similar to last years Halloween murders which can be read about here.

Reports tell The Prophet that the scene was so gruesome a cloaking charm was placed on the entire room to prevent authorities who could not handle the carnage from passing out.

The new Dark Mark that has been reported twice before, was again etched into the back of the skulls of all six victims. Each body had also been strung to the next one by means of rope, where-in an individual’s neck was bound to the ankles of the next body.

In the center of the pattern the familiar mark was found (pictured below), drawn in blood and overlaid with what seemed to be bones and hair from humans. 

When The Prophet had the chance to speak with Headmaster McGonagall we were informed that the site of the murders were stumbled upon by multiple students whose memories have now been Obliviated.

The assailants are unknown at this point in time but the murders are suspected to have taken place at 3:33am in the morning, with no information regarding how Hogwarts was forayed into.

Just today however a package was delivered to The Prophet anonymously with a single parchment inside of it. On the parchment two symbols next to each other, one being that of the new dark mark appearing every Halloween, and the other is more notable The Deathly Hallows (pictured below).


As we studied the the parcel presented to our offices it became increasingly aware that the “New Dark Mark” is a geometrical obscurity of The Deathly Hallows – but to what avail?

For now The Ministry of Magic has released word that all those in the Wizarding Community be cautious around Halloween Holidays. 

If any of our readers have any further information, theories or ideologies we welcome your input!

  • Woah. I can’t believe the Dark Mark is also known as the mashed up Deathly Hallows Mark! I thought the Master of Death and his companions killed You-Know-Who!

      • Well, Harry’s the Master of Death because he accepted his death fate. That’s how revived after ‘dying’ from Voldemort’s killing curse.

  • There’s a girl in my house who stumbled upon the scene. We spent hours trying to calm her down. It’s a relief her memories were obliterated, I don’t think she could’ve coped with the memory of it.

    There’s no way that could be true; Harry Potter destroyed the Elder Wand, and unless You-Know-Who is rising again. . . but Hogwarts is by far the safest place in the Wizarding world. It must mean that some of the other Death Eaters are getting revenge!

  • Are you sure its an obscurity to the Deathly Hallows symbol? It looks more like an upside down trident flanked by two crescent moons. Maybe its not affiliated with the Deathly Hallows, but a cult or dark underworld organization linked to anything pertaining to the sea. After all, tridents are usually related to the sea as a means to pay homage to Poseiden, God and ruler of the waters. The crescent moons as well, due to the moon’s gravitational influence on the tides. While I’m not sure why such atrocity was committed, I do know this. No crime is ever committed without cause, usually dealing with money. Please anyone, keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

  • If you look carefully at the symbol in comparison to the deathly hallows symbol in it the resurrection stone is inverted which could represent death, and the invisibility cloak is opened up which could represent revealing something, and the elder wand is extended which could represent power, meaning the mark roughly translates as revealing power over death, which is really dark as it essentially means they have the power to kill.

      • By the way, the reason why I was able to decode that was because I have precognitive dreams, and as you know, that ability often comes wit the skill to interpret them and other things involving symbolism. There is just one problem being that my magical abilities are suppressed by unknown means and have been since I was an infant, (The reason I didn’t develop an obscurus being that I love magic,) Which brings up the question, who would want to suppress my magical abilities and why. Also I did actually receive an Ilvermorny letter when I was 11 (I’m from America,) but due to me not understanding that I had magical abilities at the time, (Remember my magic was suppressed so I had not learned about my magic,) and me losing my temper about the color of the handwriting, basically the letter and the one chance I had of restoring my magical abilities was ripped in two. So the question is: Is there any way I can get a replacement Ilvermorny letter? It’s been 6 years and I only just remembered receiving it last April and have been trying to figure out how to contact Agilbert Fontaine ever since.

  • It’s only my second year at Hogwarts! I can’t believe it, I hope my friends Cyril and Celia(they’re twins) are alright… I had to go home because of my brother(he has terrible dragon pox and is very horrid that he needs to stay at St Mungo’s for 10 days! usually would be cured but he won’t tell us how he got it) and received the prophet late! I hope everyone’s safe especially my best friends!

  • is there any information about who died in this event ?
    the names of the victims
    as to me there is no one safe at this moment

    • Abdelmonem,

      The Ministry of Magic nor Hogwarts would release names to us here at The Prophet. This is not uncommon in these circumstances.

      We are attempting to follow the invent but no known further information exists at this time.

  • I’m a second year Ravenclaw and I had a dream about the new dark mark and I saw this shadow rising from it with people around it, I dont know what this means

  • All my children go to Hogwarts and I am very scared for them so please increase the security or I will educate them at home.
