Dreams are very powerful. They can dive us into the depths of the subconscious and show us thoughts and feelings we never let ourselves explore, they can act as a time turner and take us forward to the future, and they can also be messages from the beyond. Dreams can alter our feelings, fears, and thoughts. But what if someone has found the secret to manipulate our dreams? What if the dreams we're dreaming our not really ours but someone else far more sinister?
Well it is the year 2053 in the wizarding world. The Dark Lord, Lord Voldemort was vanquished half a century ago and the wizarding world was living in harmony (well sort of...) for more then 50 years. The vain purebloods were beginning to decrease in numbers and it seemed that there would be less prejudice in the wizarding world regarding blood lines but things were about to change back to the way it was before by the power of two men.
The Ministry of Magic have just elected a new Minister to take the place of the departed Rufus Scrimegeour. The man that was elected was Mitchell McGraith. Little did anyone know, Mitchell McGraith supported the cause of Lord Voldemort though he was not born yet. He believed that the Wizarding World should be restored to the way it was before. He believed that muggle borns had no place in the wizarding community simply because they were descended from filthy muggles. He wanted to confiscate every muggle born's wand, disallow them from taking employment in any wizarding occupation, excommunicate them from the wizarding world and worst yet, erase their memories of a wizarding world at all. He has not been able to enforce these laws just yet for he has only held office for a simple month but those were certainly his future plans.
Meanwhile, there is a man by the name of Damien Maleficus that was what you would call a mad genius. He was probably one of the most intelligent wizards at that time. Damien's specialty was the art of Divination. He was able to interpret dreams, tea leaves, predict the future, and have prophecies. Damien had always been fond of finding new spells and creating new potions. Through his research, he has found the secret spell to manipulate people's dreams. Through his experiments, he was successfully able to sneak into people's dreams and change them. He was able to alter their subconscious to do what he pleased. With this power he was able to manipulate people's thoughts and emotions. With all this power, Damien went mad and began to use this power to work to his benefit.
Damien just like the Minister of Magic despised muggle borns and felt that they were a danger to the development for the wizarding community. He felt that muggle borns were far less intelligent than purebloods. Muggle borns were mixing with purebloods and other wizards endangering the future generation with ignorance and he wanted to put a stop to it all. With his power to manipulate dreams and turn them into nightmares, Maleficus has successfully altered the minds of wizards to despise muggle borns.
After a few experiments, Damien decided to go for the most powerful man, the Minister of Magic. After watching a few of Minister McGraith's dreams, he was pleased to see that the Minister of Magic shared his view on the filthy muggle borns. Knowing this, Maleficus decided to let the Minister of Magic know of his power and how he intended to brain wash the entire wizarding community. With so much power, it is a wonder if good would overcome all this power.
With his gift of Divination, Damien Maleficus was able to see into the future. He saw that there was one man with a much greater power that could stop him and the Minister's evil plot. This man was the young Eric Levine. In Damien's vision, Eric had the special power to control just about every creature (not including humans) that walked the earth. With this power, Damien feared, would be used against him in his way to ethnically cleanse the wizards. He was also the only person that Damien could not break into his dreams. Damien thought it was wise to try and convince Eric onto their side.
Damien and Mitchell discussed their plans to Eric but to their dismay, Eric was disgusted by their plot and felt that it was up to him to create an army and make them aware of Maleficus' power which seemed to be the only way he could think of to stop them. But how was he going to get this information out to the masses when the Ministry of Magic sent out an order to hunt down Eric Levine and kill him. Eric now had to keep a low profile while recruiting people to fight on his side one by one.
Will Maleficus succeed? Will Eric be the one to stop these evil doers? Will wizards listen and believe Eric or fall to the dark side? The fate of the wizarding world is up to you.
