Famous Wizard Cards/Wizards of the Month History

Witch Burnings

As the magical world separates itself more and more from Muggle society, Muggles are particularly afraid of magic but not very good at recognizing it, leading to persecution of suspected witches. Wendelin the Weird is burned at the stake 47 times in various disguises (using a Flame-Freezing Charm to protect herself from the fire) (PA1, FW).
