Wizard Magician Breaks Statute of Secrecy on Christmas Eve

By: Oswald Quiver

Christmas Eve is a big day for the western world – for both Wizard, Witch and Muggle alike.

This Christmas Eve a performer of the magical arts, also known as a “magician” to muggles, by the name of Ryland Silverthorne has caught the attention of The Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes for revealing how one of his famous tricks is preformed.

The “Trick” in question breaks The Statue of Secrecy (instituted in 1689) and consists of a standard disappearing act in which Silverhtorne has a volunteer from the audience join him on stage. After choosing his audience selected assistant he then apparates with the chosen muggle to the back of the room behind the spectators, in plain view for everyone to see.

Because of the magicians haphazard and careless acts, The Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes in conjunction with a team of Obliviators has been tasked with tracking down all audience members that have attended Silverthornes shows to abolish and correct their memories.

Silverthorne has since been arrested and currently awaits sentencing in the Department of Mysteries. If convicted, Silverthorne will serve a lifetime in solitude at Azkaban.

When The Daily Prophet caught up with Silverthorne for comment the Wizard refused to answer our questions.

It just goes to show that not all ideas are good ideas and that the world of magic still needs to be careful – especially when in the muggle community.

  • Well, I feel this should be taken seriously by the readers of Daily Prophet because this a real crime. I request you all to spread this piece of news so that it does not happen again. I expect you all to understand that its also a lot of work for the Ministry of Magic.
