Albus Dumbledore (HBP promo) 1

Albus Dumbledore is the Numenorian son of Kendra, and Percival Dumbledore making him a member of House Dumbledore, and the Arch-Mage of Hogwarts, and one of the most powerful Magi in Europe. Albus Dumbledore has two siblings in the form of Aberforth, and Ariana Dumbledore of which his brother Aberforth is a powerful figure in Hogsmeade but is extremely towards Albus over the death of Ariana, and his sister Ariana was murdered by the dark Magi Grindewald and he blames himself for her death but she remains with him in the form of a living painting. Albus's wife died during the birth of their only daughter Lavander Dumbledore. Albus has a troubled relationship with Lavander Dumbledore, and has basically taken to ignoring her out of a silent blame for the death of his wife.

Albus Dumbledore is a Magi sensitive person, of which he is a very high level Magi user with his level being Level Five.

The early years of Dumbledore's life were marked by tragedy when his younger sister, Ariana Dumbledore, was attacked by a group of Muggle boys, who saw her performing magic and were frightened by what they saw. Ariana was left mentally and emotionally scarred by the event and her magical powers were left severely altered and would manifest themselves on rare occasions usually in random or destructive ways. Albus' father, Percival Dumbledore, was heartbroken and set out in search of his own brand of justice. He located the Muggle boys and attacked them, as they had his daughter. It is unknown exactly what he did to them, but it might be assumed he probably used the Cruciatus Curse on them as he was sentenced to life in Azkaban for the crime, and would later die there. Albus Dumbledore was the main teacher, and confidant of Tom Malfoy, and this secret has been something he has worked tirelessly throughout his life to keep hidden from the Hogwarts population, and in doing this he silently moved himself closer and closer to becoming the monster he has always tried to fight in his life. Albus Dumbledore and Elphias Doge would come to discover that Tom Malfoy had uncovered one of the deathly hollows and was attempting to discover the remainder, and they enacted a plot to give themselves an advantage by tieing Lord Voldermorte to Harry Potter but this came at a terrible price as the lives were linked as a part of this plan.

History

Early Life

"Albus Dumbledore was never proud or vain; he could find something to value in anyone, however apparently insignificant or wretched, and I believe that his early losses endowed him with great humanity and sympathy. I shall miss his friendship more than I can say, but my loss is as nothing compared to the wizarding world's. That he was the most inspiring and the best loved of all Hogwarts headmasters cannot be in question."
-Elphias Doge

Albus Dumbledorewas born in the vast Empire city of Aldorf, and was born with Numenorian blood, which has allowed him to live for a very long time. The early years of Dumbledore's life were marked by tragedy when his younger sister, Ariana Dumbledore, was attacked by a group of Muggle boys, who saw her performing magic and were frightened by what they saw. Ariana was left mentally and emotionally scarred by the event and her magical powers were left severely altered and would manifest themselves on rare occasions usually in random or destructive ways. Albus' father, Percival Dumbledore, was heartbroken and set out in search of his own brand of justice. He located the Muggle boys and attacked them, as they had his daughter. It is unknown exactly what he did to them, but it might be assumed he probably used the Cruciatus Curse on them as he was sentenced to life in Azkaban for the crime, and would later die there. To escape the accusing eyes of the wizarding world, Kendra Dumbledore moved her young family to the village of Godric's Hollow which, like Mould-on-the-Wold, was a mainly wizarding village. Kendra rebuffed all her neighbours, with the eventual exception of Bathilda Bagshot, preferring to be left alone: and Albus learned not to mention his sister or father in public.

Student Years

"By the end of his first year, he would never again be known as the son of a Muggle-hater, but as nothing more or less than the most brilliant student ever seen at the school."
-Elphias Doge

Dumbledore began attending Hogwarts in the autumn of 1892 and was Sorted into Gryffindor house. Dumbledore's first year was met with much whispering about his father's crime. Many of Albus' fellow students mistakenly believed that, like father like son, Albus too hated Muggles. Some praised his father's actions hoping to gain his trust, but they would not find favour with the young Dumbledore this way. Though later in his young life, under the influence of his love for Gellert Grindelwald, some anti-Muggle prejudice did develop, he soon saw the error of his intent. He befriended a young Elphias Doge on his first day at Hogwarts; Doge was suffering from Dragon pox at the time, which discouraged most from approaching him. Dumbledore, however, demonstrated his uncommon kindness and willingness to look past the surface and find inner beauty in people. Dumbledore also became very well-connected during his Hogwarts years, making notable friends such as Nicolas Flamel, Bathilda Bagshot, and Griselda Marchbanks, who marked him in his N.E.W.T.s for Charms and Transfiguration and later recalled that he did things with a wand that she had never seen before. He also had several of his papers published during his studies. During his school years, Dumbledore won the Barnabus Finkley Prize for Exceptional Spell-Casting, became the British Youth Representative to the Wizengamot, and received the gold medal for Ground-Breaking Contribution to the International Alchemical Conference in Cairo.

Tragedy and Friendship

"So that, when my mother died, and I was left the responsibility of a damaged sister and a wayward brother, I returned to my village in anger and bitterness. Trapped and wasted, I thought! And then, of course, he came."
-Albus Dumbledore

After graduating from Hogwarts, Dumbledore planned to take the traditional "Grand Tour" of the world with his friend Doge. However tragedy ensued on the eve of the departure when Kendra Dumbledore was killed by an outburst of Ariana's uncontrollable magic, leaving Albus the head of his own broken family. Albus returned to Godric's Hollow full of bitter resentment at his situation, feeling trapped and wasted. Fortune finally shone on Dumbledore in the form of Gellert Grindelwald, who was in Godric's Hollow to research the Deathly Hallows. Grindelwald was as talented and brilliant as Albus was. Dumbledore quickly became fascinated by Grindelwald's ideas of wizarding domination, obviously considering Grindelwald an unexpected new chance to show his own brilliance and come out of the local misery. Albus also harboured romantic feelings for the other boy, but regretted his relationship with Grindelwald later in life.

However, after two months, Albus' brother Aberforth confronted him over his neglect of Ariana over the past few weeks, telling him he couldn't carry out his plans with Grindelwald, as he would have to take her with him. Grindelwald then used the Cruciatus Curse on him. A violent duel erupted between the three teenage boys. Ariana herself tried to intervene in the fight, but couldn't due to her erratic abilities, and in the ensuing chaos was hit by a stray curse and died. No one knew whose curse it was that killed her, but Grindelwald fled immediately, as he already had a bad record back home, leaving the devastated Albus behind.

Hogwarts Civil War

Main Article : Hogwarts Civil War

The Philosophers Stone
School of Magi
I grew up a young boy being told the stories of ancient Wizards, and Witches and the great things they did. One of these stories was of a great Magi fighting his entire life to defend the Magi world from the outsiders that hated it so much. He fought for years and years, and lost everyone he loved, and I remember asking my mother if this story had a happy ending. My mother carassed my hair before she told me that the story ended with the great Magi defeating the monster that had took everything from him, and the world was saved. I asked her what happened to the great Magi and she changed the subject. I realize now why she did that. The noble man defeats his enemy, and then he dies. This is the way of the good side. We fight and we lose everything just to save a world, that we will never see. It seems unfair to me that the good of the world is so cruely chosen to die, while the evil of the world is given free reign for however long they choose.
The Triumverate2
From that moment on, Hermione Granger became our friend. There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.
Ron Weezly

Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, and Ron Weezly were not always the the Triumverate that they would become and in the the beginning it took many close encounters for the three to finally become as close as they have. They would first meet on the train ride from the capital where the students of Hogwarts would first prepare for their departure, and it was on this train ride that the dynamics of the beginning of the group would begin. While Ron, and Harry started off as friends and Harry was always polite to Hermione there was an almost bitterness between Ron and Hermione due to Rons behavior which was caused by him finding many things difficult due to his lack of natural intelligence on their level. Hermione Granger attached herself to Harry and Ron, following them around and trying to prevent them from breaking school rules and getting into trouble.

That was the first time we nearly died, and a part of me was so scared in that moment that I thought that everything elce in the world would be nothing compared to that moment. As if the danger of that Troll would some how create in me a defence against everything elce that would ever threaten me. I was wrong.
Hermione Granger
The friendship between the three was solidified when, on Halloween during their first year, the three were forced to confront a mountain troll, that had been set loose in Hogwarts in the earliest attempt on Harry's life. Unaware that a troll was on the loose in the school, Hermione had spent that day crying in the girls' bathroom after overhearing Ron making unkind comments about her. The troll made its way into the bathroom she was in, and Harry and
Hermione Granger Gif4
Ron came to her rescue, and proseeded to fight the Troll. None of the three had any experiance fighting anything of that magnitude so the fight was extremely chaotic with the Troll nearly killing the group several times, but their quick thinking kept them alive. As the fight looked to be going against them Ron was picked up by the Troll who prepared to kill Ron, but before he could Harry stabbed it through the foot with a wooden post, and the Troll fell over from this. With the troll falling on its stomach Harry climbed on its back and shot it behind the head where Hermione screamed to him it had weak armor. With the troll lying dead the group stayed quiet for several minutes as Harry checked on his two friends, and though they didn't know it the Triumverate would be formed by these moments. When Professors Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, and Quirinus Quirrell arrived at the scene, Hermione covered for the boys, claiming she was fighting the troll because she had thought that she could fight one, having read a great deal about them, and that Ron and Harry had merely come to help her escape. From that point on, the three students were best friends.

The Trapdoor

Hermione Granger4

Hermione Granger would become the source of much knowledge as she gained a relationship with Head Master Albus Dumbledore, of whom begin to show her things that opened her eyes to the darkness of Magi.

The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making the Philosopher's Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers. The Stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal.
Albus Dumbledore

On one night, she followed them as they were leaving Gryffindor Tower to duel Draco Malfoy. Unknown to Harry and Ron was the fact that Draco was too afraid to challenge them and because of this he had gone to Argus Filch and told him that Harry and Ron were going to the third floor to cause mayhem. When they arrived at the dueling spot they were spotted by Argus Filch of whom demanded to know what they were doing up there and before he could say anything else they bolted away from him and ran upstairs. They were chased by Argus Filch, acting on a tip off by Malfoy, into the third floor corridor — forbidden to students — where they came face-to-face with Fluffy, a three-headed dog belonging to Hagrid. Later on, she argued that her spying was to their benefit when she pointed out the dog had been standing on a trap door, which Harry and Ron had not noticed. After using Magi to cause the dog to fall asleep they moved the god again with Magi before descending into the trap door. After going through the trapdoor, a long drop led to a chamber filled with Devil's Snare, planted by the Herbology teacher, Professor Sprout. The Devil's Snare was designed to entangle and suffocate any intruders, especially quickly the more the intruder attempts to escape. As the Snare is sensitive to heat and light, Hermione used a charm that created a jet of Bluebell flames to free Ron. As they attempted to turn back a Magi wall appeared behind them leading to them having no choice but to go down.

The Birds

Hermione Granger7
Thats a really big dog.
Ron Weezly

A downward sloping passage led to another chamber filled with flying keys, charmed by Professor Flitwick. A large wooden door led to another chamber. The door would not open with the use of any charm such as Alohomora, one needed the correct key to get through. To pass, one had to use the broomstick provided to catch the correct key. However, once airborne, the other keys will try and attack the pursuer. The group attempted to ride broomsticks which were on the ground in order to reach the keys but they continued to fail at this until finally Harry was able to reach the top of the room and made a death defying jump in order to reach the correct key, and then survived the jump after Hermione slowed his fall with Magi. When the group finally managed to get the key and get into the next room a man in a dark robe appeared in front of them, and while this man throughout the conversation to follow would remain anonymous in truth it was an apparition of Tom Malfoy. When they attempted to raise their wands against him he disarmed the group and proceeded to tell them a story.

Dear children there was once a young wizard that wanted to live forever. This young wizard wanted to live forever so much that he spent his entire families wealth, and all of his time creating a stone which while the user held would make him stop aging. This man would use this stone to prolong his life until one day a thief stole it from him in the night. This theif would take the stone and sell it on the market to a man who took the stone to a school. This school would hide the stone for years and years, but the man never forgot the stone, and finally caught the trail of the stone, and when he did he attempted to get it back, but he discovered their were obstacles in his way. You three have passed three of the obstacles, and if you wish to surive you will pass the rest, and when you reach the end you will give me the stone or you will die.
Tom Malfoy

The man would proceede to tell them that story before making them perfectly aware of the fact that they were going to die, unless they did what he wanted and got him the stone. The three attempted to resist him, but he was far to powerful in that moment and they were pushed back again. With no hope the three agreed to his demands and told him that they would get him the stone. With this the man would pick up their wands and hand them back to the three before he pushed them through a door and into the next room.

Playing Chess

Game of Chess
You've been studying your books for years Hermione. Harry is the most gifted wizard I've ever seen. You want to know what I'm good at. Watch me win us this game of Wizard's Chess.
Ron Weezly

The next chamber was dark and resembled a graveyard, it contained a Human Chess Game, enchanted by Professor McGonagall. To defeat the game, one had to play themselves across the board and checkmate the King according to the rules of Chess. One cannot simply walk across the board and pass, so an adequate knowledge of Wizard's Chess was needed to complete this task. Ron had come to love chess during his time at Hogwarts and was one of the best in the entire school so he was able to defeat the game quite easily, but on the checkmate move he was forced to sacrifice his player and this injured him, and with the entrance to the final room closing in front of them Hermione, and Harry were encouraged by Ron to leave him behind to find his own way out while they went through to the final stage.

Seven Potions

Hermione Granger 5
It's just the three of us. We have to work this out to get out of here. There isn't two other people I would want at my side.
Harry Potter

The next obstacle guarding the Stone was a logical riddle set by Professor Snape, and entering the room Hermione, and Harry now alone without Ronald are left to enter what they know is the last obstacle to their goal. Before entering the room the two held each other for some a few minutes as Hermione had begun to shake uncontrollably out of fear, and Harry consoled her, and in this moment kissed her on the forehead another moment in the expanding chemistry between the two best friends. Upon entering the chamber, the doorway through which one entered was blocked by a purple flame. The other entry way leading to the Philosopher's Stone, was blocked with black flame. A table with seven bottle of differing shapes sat in the middle of the room. Each bottle contained a liquid, but the bottles were not labelled with their contents. Three were poison, two contained nettle wine, one contained a potion to safely traverse the black flame, and the last contained a potion that allowed passage back through the purple flames. The riddle, when properly worked out, revealed the contents of each bottle, and therefore which one was safe to drink to allow onward progress.

Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind. Two of us will help you, whichever you would find, One among us seven will let you move ahead, Another will transport the drinker back instead, Two among our number hold only nettle wine, Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line. Choose, unless you wish to stay here for evermore, To help you in your choice, we give you these clues four: First, however slyly the poison tries to hide You will always find some on nettle wine's left side; Second, different are those who stand at either end, But if you would move onwards neither is your friend; Third, as you see clearly, all are different size, Neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides; Fourth, the second left and the second on the right Are twins once you taste them, though different at first sight.
The Riddle

Hermione tells Harry that it is a test of logic and not magic wherein most wizards fail. She solves the puzzle, and at Harry's instruction, drinks the one that will allow her to head back through the purple flame, while Harry drinks the one to head into the black flame and into the final room, where he is surprised at who he sees. As Professor Quirrell presumably traveled through the chamber to reach the Mirror of Erised, he must have had to take the Black Fire Potion himself, and, as there was only enough potion for one person in the bottle, that would have used it all up. However, he may have taken some of the potion with him when he entered the chambers, and drunk that instead. Another possibility is that the bottles had had a Refilling Charm on them.

The Stone

hjh

The final obstacle was the Mirror of Erised, designed and set by Albus Dumbledore and was designed with a major moral shield leading to those with moral failings to basically be unable to succeed at this test. The only way to obtain the stone was to look into the mirror, see yourself having it, but not using it. Most people would see themselves using it, such as turning things to gold, crafting Elixir of Life, or giving it to someone. It was at this moment that the man in the dark robe appeared again and this time he revealed himself as Proffesor Quirrell and told the three that he was unable to get the stone from the mirror, and the only person he believed that could was Harry Potter and it was for this reason that he had Draco Malfoy lure the three of them into the tunnel. Also appearing at this point are several others dressed in dark clothing wearing masks who support Quirrel, and while their identity would remain a mystery the people were in fact Draco Malfoy, Astoria Malfoy, Tobias Grundeven, and Charlotte Painsley of whom were there under orders from the Deatheaters leadership. Quirrell asks for help from his master to get the Stone, and a snake-like voice tells him to use the boy. Harry is told to look into the Mirror. Under threat Harry is forced to look into the mirror. He sees his reflection pull the Stone out of his pocket and put it back in, and Harry feels it drop into his own pocket. He lies to Quirrell about what he sees, telling him instead that he sees himself shaking hands with Dumbledore, after winning the House Cup for Gryffindor. The snake-like voice tells Quirrell Harry is lying and Quirrell takes his turban off to show Harry what lies on the back of his head. As Quirrell turns around, Harry is shocked to see another face where the back of Quirrell's head should be. The face has red eyes and a snake-like slit where the nose should be. Harry realises this is the face of whoever this Lord Voldemort is, and Voldemort demands Harry give him the Stone. Harry refuses and runs, but Quirrell seizes him. However, the contact with Harry's skin burns Quirrell and causes him to have boils all over the area in which Harry touched him. Harry grabs Quirrell's face, then his arm, and holds on, with the blinding pain in his head building, until he feels the arm wrenched away before he blacks out. He awakes in the hospital wing with Dumbledore there, telling him Quirrell did not succeed at getting the Stone, and indeed the Stone has been destroyed.

Conflict with Draco

During his early time in Hogwarts he was consistently approached by one Draco Malfoy who wished for Harry to leave the school. When it became clear that wasn't going to happen the two became bitter rivals and were in near constant conflict with eachother. In the days that came before the Basilisk Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy engaged in a duel which unkown to Harry caused the death of Harnia Trout of House Slytherin.

Albus Dumbledore and Elphias Doge would come to discover that Tom Malfoy had uncovered one of the deathly hollows and was attempting to discover the remainder, and they enacted a plot to give themselves an advantage by tieing Lord Voldermorte to Harry Potter but this came at a terrible price as the lives were linked as a part of this plan.

I cared about you too much. I cared more for your happiness than your knowing the truth, more for your peace of mind than my plan, more for your life than the lives that might be lost if the plan failed. In other words, I acted exactly as Voldemort expects we fools who love to act.

Dellert Grindelwald

"Did I know, in my heart of hearts, what Gellert Grindelwald was? I think I did, but I closed my eyes."
—Albus Dumbledore to Harry Potter, about his friendship with Gellert Grindelwald

Albus Dumbledore first met Grindelwald when he was seventeen. They were introduced by Grindelwald's great aunt, Bathilda Bagshot. They got along almost instantly, according to Bagshot. They were ultimately united by their desire to have the Deathly Hallows. Although Dumbledore had romantic feelings towards Grindelwald, Grindelwald never returned this affection. Instead, he exploited his friend's infatuation in order to keep Albus on his side and maintained their friendship primarily because he saw Albus as his equal in power and intellect. They were very close for two months, making plans to find the Deathly Hallows and lead a wizarding revolution, and Albus neglected his younger siblings, Aberforth and Ariana, as a result. When Aberforth confronted the pair over this, Grindelwald lost his temper and attacked Aberforth. Albus rushed forward to defend his brother, and during the duel Ariana was killed. Grindelwald fled, his friendship with Albus over. Over the next few decades, Grindelwald gained power in Europe, and Dumbledore refused to face him out of fear that Grindelwald knew who had really killed Ariana. Eventually, however, Dumbledore could no longer stand idly by as his old friend terrorized Europe. Grindelwald combated Dumbledore for a second time in a legendary duel, said by eyewitnesses to be the greatest duel ever fought between wizards. Dumbledore won in the end, and took possession of the Elder Wand and imprisoned Grindelwald in his own prison Nurmengard.

I often wonder about what I would have done if I had known then I was training a young Magi that would one day bring ruin to Hogwarts. Would I have killed young Tom Malfoy? Would I have expelled him, and hoped the problem went away? In the end what I could have done is irrelevent because in actuality I did nothing and allowed him to kill hundreds of good men and women.
