MugglebornsBACKGROUND INFORMATIONWith the obvious take over of Voldemort, muggleborns in THE UNITED KINGDOM are not what you think they are. Not any more. No longer able to go to Hogwarts because of the breeding ground that Voldemort is forcing the teachers to teach, Muggleborn students have several options that they can take to in their applications. Enrolling in another magical school, hiding out with the Order of the Phoenix or letting Voldemort find them are the three main options you can take, although we're willing to accept other creative ways, too.SCHOOL TRANSFERSMost students above first year (those who didn't start Hogwarts in the 1990-1991 school year), would've been able to leave the country with enough time to get enrollment into another school. There are three other schools in play: Ilvermorny in the United States, Beauxbatons in France, and Durmstrang in Scandinavia. All three of the schools work closely with parents and/or guardians to protect the new charges, and they are typically sorted into their new houses upon arrival in the school year. If you decide to go this route, please make sure you know that new muggleborn children born in the United Kingdom can be found by a representative of the schools, and can try and get the child out of the country before Voldemort's men get to them.HIDING WITH THE ORDERAnother option that muggleborn students are being hidden by the Order of the Phoenix. Once Voldemort took over, the Order swooped in and saved as many muggleborn Hogwarts students as possible, and kept them safe in several secret houses. Even now, the Order has members working underneath the Minister of Magic and are actively attempting to get to muggleborn students first. Students in the care of the Order are personally taught and tutored by whoever is around, often all years being taught together. The majority of students go on to becoming Order of the Phoenix members themselves, or quieter, subtler members of society, hoping to restore peace to the United Kingdom.
Many students in their seventh years are allowed to travel to the French Ministry of Magic -- on part of a deal with the French Order of the Phoenix -- and are able to take their NEWTs, which gives them the ability to work in foreign Ministries and other governmental jobs.WILLING CAPTURE BY VOLDEMORTThe final option for muggleborn characters is willing capture by Voldemort and the British Ministry of Magic. The Ministry's new Minister -- under the control and obedience of Voldemort -- is highly aware of new Muggleborn magics, and those who are about to enter their first year at Hogwarts. If they are not quick enough to get smuggled out of the country or be led away by the Order, they mostly end up in this category. Eleven-to-Twelve year olds are taken by death eaters -- literally forced away from their parents/guardians (who are actually obliviated afterwards) and are taken to the dark, dreary place know as The Facility.
The Facility is basically every eleven year old's nightmare. Not many know about it, or its location, but once a muggleborn student is there, they're only allowed to leave once they've reached eighteen years old. Students at the facility are given wands that are not quite acceptable to the standards of Ollivander, and often have to relinquish these wands pre-graduation. At the age of fifteen, during the start of their fifth year, students are carved into by the head of the school, an 'M' on their forearm signifying their status in the world. This is a brand they will carry for life.
Students at the Facility tend to live here all year, even during summers. Their lessons are less than perfect, with old, almost obsolete text books, and spells that are good as neutral things, rather than defensive and transfiguration. Students here are literally trained into submission and are required to show their submission throughout their lives, just by blood status.
