    Conri Power to Run for Minister

    Hogsmeade Shop Owner Declares Campaign

    Mr. Conrí Power has announced that he has joined the race for the Position as Minister of Magic. A man born in Ireland in 1862, he was born of a long line of Pureblood Irish Wizards. Mr. Power was born with a twin brother, Mr. Fiachna Power, and is the oldest of the two.

    He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a Slytherin in the years from 1873 to 1880. His grades have been revealed to be mostly Outstanding, along with two Exceeds Expectations. Upon graduation, Mr. Power joined the Blacks Gentlemen's Club, which he is still a current member of.

    His father passed in 1882, leaving him, as heir, to the family fortune, along with the family estate in Ireland. Though, only a year later, Mr. Power moved to Hogsmeade to start a business of his own, leaving the care of his estate mainly to his two siblings, his twin brother and his little sister, Miss Aisling Power.

    _____________________________________________________________

    By 1886, he has finally started running a store called Power Charms and Spells Supplies, featuring specialties from Ireland, as well as the average spells and charms supplies needed for average usage.

    Mr. Power became engaged to his wife on July 7th, to then be put into a coma by a hit to the head in the Market Disaster just two days later, being found the next day. He woke up from said coma on July 25th. It has been shown in a previous article that upon waking, he and Mrs. Power had moved the date of their wedding up a month.

    On August 1st, Mr. Power married his wife. The reception had ended quickly with her being turned into a child, which his own brother is suspected of causing. Now an adult, the couple have currently moved back to their Hogsmeade home, from his estate in Ireland, for the election.

    Lethifold Loose in Falmouth!

    Dangerous Creature Escapes from Magical Zoological Gardens- Ministry Investigates

    Smiley face


    It has been discovered that a Lethifold, that had been in the possession of a private collector, escaped from it’s enclosure in the Falmouth magical Zoological gardens yesterday. The creature, which is presumptively related to the dementor, is a native of tropical climates but can comfortably live in the climate of Britain. This particular specimen was returned to England from the Indian sub-continent by Mister Algernon Farstow, who discovered it masquerading as a curtain in his villa after it had eaten three of his servants.

    The specimen lived, for a time in his private menagerie in India before being transported to England on his death by his son Eustace Farstow, who intended to train the creature to act as a sentient sail for faster trans-ocean transport. When Mister Farstow Jnr mysteriously disappeared before completing his work with the creature, the lethifold was donated to the Falmouth magical zoological gardens where it has remained ever since.
    _____________________________________________________________
    It was discovered missing yesterday morning by the keeper who found that the previous evenings meal of live goat had not been consumed. An extensive search of the facility had been ordered but no trace of the creature could be found. Stephen Flint, head of the Department of Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures stated that "Emergency capture units are working diligently to track and capture the beast before any innocent witches, wizards, or muggles can fall victim to the creature's menace. Residents in Falmouth and the surrounding areas have been urged to take necessary precautions during the night hours to prevent attacks. Temporary housing is being immediately offered to families and individuals who feel unsafe in their own homes and wish to have guards watching over them while they sleep. Furthermore, guards will be stationed near muggle housing to assure that the beast is unable to harm innocent muggles incapable of taking necessary safety measures."
