It’s 2019 and the world has been at peace since the late 1990’s but in the shadows a new threat grows. One more powerful than the last. This threat goes by the name Jackal. Long ago Jackal was a normal wizard who attended Hogwarts like other wizards and witches, but during the last wizarding war his parents were killed in the fight. As such the wizard Jackal vowed revenge on those who killed his parents. Within a few months he disappeared of the face of the earth. No one knew where he went and soon they lost interest.
After years of travel and study in the dark arts Jackal emerged a powerful dark wizard with new plans, a plan to take over the wizarding world and kill all muggles and muggleborn. Those who in his image are imperfect. He follows the rules of the house of Slytherin, taking after Salazar Slytherin in regard that he found muggleborn disgusting and that they should not be allowed into any wizarding school.
Years pass and the war wages on. More and more people are joining Jackals side and soon the forces of good think they will lose. So they turn to the wizarding schools, Hogwarts being one of them. Starting in the new school year the students will be trained to fight so that they may join the war when they graduate. Little do they know hero’s are emerging with incredible powers never seen before. Five students meet on the train not knowing the incredible powers they hold. It’s their first year at Hogwarts and they have yet to learn of the potential they hold.
First Muggleborns Arise - 1409
It was the 29th of February when a young girl accidently set her home on fire when her anger flared up. Everyone survived but the young girl was hunted down by the wizarding community and everyone who saw what happened had there memory wiped. The young girls parents no long remembered her and she was whisked away to live with wizards. These wizards experimented on the girl, trying to figure out how she came into her powers. Though they were unsuccessful in figuring anything out due to their primitive tech.
Shortly after the finding of the young girl more rumors of witches and wizards from non-magic families. Confusion and worry ran through the minds of the wizarding community as they could no longer hide their existence from all of the world.
The First Wizarding War - 1542
The First Wizarding War was caused by the great increase in muggles finding out about the wizarding world. This war was known as the most deadly war they’ve had so far having killed thousands upon thousands of witches and wizards. The war pitted the purebloods against the muggleborns and some of the half-bloods.
Most of the half-bloods were on the fence about everything though some did join the muggleborns side. The rest of the half-bloods wanted everyone to live in harmony and not fight. This wizarding war lasted for four years before an agreement was made to keep the wizarding world as secret as possible but to still let muggleborn’s into their community.
Decine in Pureblood Population - 1592
Due to the First Wizarding War the pureblood population declined exponentially. On the opposite side the muggleborn and half-blood population has increased since the wizarding world and soon the population of half-bloods and muggleborns would rise above the pureblood population. Due to this many purists have married each other in hopes of bringing the population of purebloods up.
While this was slightly successful the total population was still lower than the total population of muggleborns and half-bloods.
Hogwarts Accepts First Muggleborns - 1700
It was the new year at Hogwarts and finally after years of debate muggleborns were being allowed into the school. As such this caused an uproar among students as most of the purebloods did not like the idea of the school becoming overrun by these pests. Though with or without the students permission muggleborn students started attending Hogwarts.
With the muggleborns coming to Hogwarts a new class was also added. Muggle Studies. This class is usually taught by a scholar who studies muggle culture. Though there have been exceptions as Muggle Studies teachers are hard to come by.
Second Wizarding War -1990
The Second Wizarding war was fought in America though not many people know this as it’s only taught to scholars who are pursuing the path of history. This war was the most tame of the wars having only 6,189 people die. While this war was fought in America some battles were fought over in Europe, though they were small ones only have a few casualties. This war was caused by a group of purists who wanted to destroy all those who are not worthy. The war lasted 2 years, ending when the group of purists were brought down by the MACUSA.
It was during this war that Jackal’s parents were killed setting him on the path of revenge.

Power: Far Sight - Not quite like Seeing, but not quite unlike it, users can have visions of the past and future. Such a thing only happens when touching certain objects or touching things with intent. With control, the user is able to try to focus on a single event in the past to see what was happening around the object or they can search the future for several possibilities centered around the object. Without control, the visions come and go seemingly at random and can often be disorienting.
