Dark Magic Hogwarts

Scorpius Malfoy is called to Headmistress Umbridge’s office for a talk about his state of mind

"Our work together, flushing out the more dilettante students has made this school a safer - purer - place."
-- Dolores Umbridge (CC3.1)

Scorpius Malfoy is called to the Headmistress Dolores Umbridge’s office for a chat about his current state of mind. She reminds him that he has “Head Boy” potential – due to his natural abilities as an athlete and leader, but also his work with her against non-conforming students in the school (CC3.1).

She states that she is worried about the change in him since being found in the Lake – in particular his questions about the Battle of Hogwarts and the fate of Harry Potter. Scorpius says that this seeming obsession of his was only a “temporary aberration” and is now finished (CC3.1).

Timeline Notes

Three days after "Voldemort Day", likely late September or early October 2020



This event takes place during the Scorpion King timeline, as described in the essay "Albus Potter and the lesson in Quantum Mechanics" by Nick Moline.

Dolores Umbridge also says that her reports to "The Augurey" about Scorpius are glowing. This is the first time this name is mentioned (CC3.1).

Unlike his self in the future, this Scorpius is also a Quidditch player:

"I’ve seen you on the Quidditch pitch, there’s rarely a Snitch you don’t catch."
-- Dolores Umbridge (CC3.1)
