Hades is what I’ll call you young basilisk.
Thank you master.
Just call me Ares. You aren’t allowed to attack my friends; Orion Frost, Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger, Griffin or Indigo Wildflower. I won’t lock you up in the Chamber of Secrets either Hades.
Who is Hades Ares?
Hades is an ancient Greek muggle God. He was the God of the Underworld and was the brother of Poseidon and Zeus. Together these three brothers were known as the Big Three. Their father was Cronus, the king of the heavens, who was defeated by Zeus after Cronus ate all his other children. Zeus rescued his siblings after defeating his father and Cronus was sent to Tartarus, a region of Hades. Hades was the name of the Greek God of the Dead and the Underworld itself.
Interesting. Thank you for explaining my name to me Ares.
You’re welcome. I also have a few other animal companions. Shadow is my other snake, Iris is my bonded wolf, Charon is a raven I received from father and Hedwig is an owl I bought after going to Diagon Alley when I got my acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Is there any way that you can remain hidden from the others at Hogwarts?
Yes. I can go into your skin like a tattoo and remain there until you have need of me.
Then please do it.
Ares felt Hades crawl up his left arm and sink down into his skin. As he looked the snake moved a bit but then remained still. He smiled, drank a vial of the Elixir of Life, and went back to researching a way to get his father back. Little did Ares know that life as he knew it would soon change.
“Raven are you alright?” Regulus asked the woman in the other cell. Dumbledore had left sometime in the night.
“Regulus why did Tom try to kill you?”
“He didn’t try to kill me. That was Dumbledore’s doing. It’s part of why I got locked up.”
“What do you mean?”
Regulus sighed. He had no idea how to explain this to his master’s girlfriend. “Is Gemini asleep?”
“For now. Until Dumbledore comes back that is.”
“Do you have an Animagus form Mistress Raven? We should escape why we can and then I promise I’ll tell you everything.”
“Yes Gemini has an Animagus form as well. I’ve been teaching him and he does have his father’s talent.”
“Please wake him and…” but before Regulus could finish he heard barking and looked up to see a black dog with yellow eyes staring at him with shock. “A grim?” Regulus questioned as he looked at the Grim in confusion. There was only one reason a Grim ever appeared. He was going to die.
The Grim suddenly transformed and there stood his older brother. “SIRIUS?!”
“Regulus? I thought you were dead!”
“I thought you were dead. Dumbledore told me he killed your Siri,” Regulus said using his nickname for his older brother.
Sirius let out a laugh that sounded like a bark and shook his sad sadly. “It’s hard to explain Reggie. Do you have an Animagus form? We have to get out of here.”
“No Siri I can’t leave my Mistress and her son.”
“When did you get a mistress Reggie?”
“Siri it’s the Dark Lord’s girlfriend and son in here with me.”
A starving wolf had made it out of its cell and stood on the rocky shore of Azkaban looking out at the sea. He was grayer now than he had been before he had been sentenced to Azkaban and his amber eyes were filled with a haunted look. Shaking from the cold wind that blew from the south the werewolf threw itself into the sea and began swimming for the far shore that he knew would lead him back to Hogwarts. He was going to KILL Dumbledore for locking him up and taking away his cub and best friend. Finally after a few hours of swimming he managed to pull himself up onto dry land and shook his body in an attempt to get the water off his fur and shake the chill from his bones. Moony took one last look behind him at the fog that hid the wizard prison where he had been kept captive for thirteen years and loped off into the forest.
