Introduction: The Basics of Azkaban Prison – What is it, Who’s in it and Why?
Azkaban is a wizarding prison like no other, hidden deep within the British Isles. It’s only accessible by boat and those who are deemed guilty of the worst crimes against society. It’s always been situated at sea but there has been talk of opening a land entrance to showcase what life is like in Azkaban to the public. Life in Azkaban is unbearable for most of the prisoners. Prisoner Harry Potter was convicted of murder and, as such, he was sentenced to life in Azkaban. But during his years in the wizarding prison, he discovered that there’s more to it than meets the eye.
What is Azkaban?
How to Keep Yourself Out of Azkaban – Interrogating the Aurors
If someone is seen almost as a traitor (it’s possible to know if this is true though) then the Aurors will interrogate them for any information about what the prisoner has done. Also, if you do anything that shows you would try to escape Azkaban before visiting at least one of your old friends, the Aurors will have cause to capture you. There is one way to escape and that is with the Dementors. You have to be kissed by a Dementor, however you must be deemed a serious criminal for that to happen. This is how you escape Azkaban.
The Aurors will question you if they suspect you of having done something that got the person in Azkaban in the first place. In the film “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” (the third film in the series) Sirius Black tells Harry that he never told a soul about how to defeat Lord Voldemort.
How Will Your Defense Team Keep You Out of Azkaban? – Analyzing the Defense Against the Dark Arts Teacher
Azkaban is the most dangerous place in the wizarding world, which means there is a very high number of Dark Arts teachers. There are two ways to defend against these teachers; truth serum or memory charms. If you are captured and tested with truth serum, you will have no memories of the time spent in Azkaban. The first use was by Peter Pettigrew for Lord Voldemort though it didn’t work as expected. The second use is with memory charms that can be used on other dark arts teachers who enter Azkaban. The most popular is the use of Veritaserum, it is a potion that can be used to force memories out of someone. The first use for this was by Lucius Malfoy to get information from Severus Snape, the second use was by his son Draco who was unable to remember anything from his previous life and was therefore forced to confess. The other type of memory charm used by the Ministry is called the Imperius curse, this is a curse that needs to be cast on a victim but you can use it at any time as it doesn’t need an incantation but only requires that you think about using this spell. The Ministry has to use wizards for veritaserum tests because witches and wizards don’t have the ability to produce such a powerful potion as a wizard does. The second spell is the Imperius curse, which requires a strong dose of dark magic that many dark arts teachers would not have. This makes it unlikely to use as a teacher.
What is Your Fate if Your Own Family Members Testify Against You in Court? – Analyzing the Ministry for Magic Employee at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
There is a very complicated process that happens when the Ministry of Magic is accused of something. The first step is to ask the employee to come in and talk about their side of what happened. They do not have to give up information, in fact they don’t even have to turn up. If they do turn up and refuse this request, then the Aurors need permission from the Minister for Magic to take them away. If the situation is serious enough, and the employee won’t offer any information, then the employee will be fired immediately. In Harry Potter’s case, Sirius Black never went in front of a judge to defend his actions and was therefore dismissed from Hogwarts forever and Azkaban without a trial.
If the employee does appear and give up information, then the Aurors have to search them for any illegal items before they are allowed to take them away to be locked up again. This is why Harry’s wand was confiscated when he got arrested. This is also why Peter Pettigrew helped him escape from being captured with his Patronus charm.
First of all, I must say that I’m very curious about this trial that Sirius went through at 12 years old. He was called a murderer by 12 years old students , and the Ministry of Magic didn’t have enough evidence to make it to a trial. I believe that there are many things that we could have learned from this, but I’m really curious.
