Delphi tortures Scorpius Malfoy to make Albus Potter follow her instructions

"It took me a long time to discover your weakness.... I thought it was pride, I thought it was the need to impress your father, but then I realised your weakness was the same as your father's - friendship."
-- Delphi (CC3.19)

Having taken them to the Quidditch pitch in the Hogwarts grounds, Delphi uses the Cruciatus Curse to torture Scorpius Malfoy in order to make Albus Potter follow her instructions. He and Scorpius need to humiliate Cedric Diggory again, this time during the Third Task of the Triwizard Tournament, so that Cedric again becomes the Death Eater who kills Neville Longbottom (CC3.19).

Craig Bowker Jr arrives and is killed by Delphi. She then uses the Experimental Time-Turner to put into motion the events that will lead to the eventual victory of Lord Voldemort (CC3.19).

Timeline Notes

At the same time or just after the previous event, likely October 2020



This event takes place at the end of the Repaired timeline, as described in the essay "Albus Potter and the lesson in Quantum Mechanics" by Nick Moline.

Craig Bowker Jr becomes the second "spare" to be killed - a cruel and pointless death, like Cedric Diggory's (GF32, CC3.19).

Delphi also reveals the second prophecy involving Voldemort: "When spares are spared, when time is turned, when unseen children murder their fathers: then will the Dark Lord return". She wants to be at the side of the Lord Voldemort in a new dark and evil world. Craig was the latest spare and Albus will be the unseen child who will murder his father (CC3.19).
