 02. synopsis
Alohomora is a non–canon roleplay that takes place in JK Rowling's Harry Potter Universe. The site takes place during present time, but members should note that characters from the series (Dumbledore, Voldemort, Hermione, etc.) do not exist in our site's canon. That being said, references to the series' historical or famous characters (think Newt Scamander, well–known bands, etc.) can be made.

We are a character driven site, meaning that members are responsible for creating their own plots between themselves, and potentially driving site–wide plots in the future. Anything that influences the site in its entirety will be posted in this thread.
01. The current Minister of Magic is a half–blood witch named Imogen Galloway. She was elected recently, and succeeded the now–retired Minister, a pureblood wizard by the name Peleus Pilkington. Galloway, though only thirty–two, is a powerful and intelligent Slytherin alumna.

02. Dark magic and wizards exist, but currently there is no dark group that is a threat to the magical world. A few isolated incidents have occurred within the past year or two, but thus far the incidents seem unconnected.

03. In our universe, Hogwarts teaches approximately 500 total students per school year. Though J.K. Rowling once stated in an interview that the approximate number was 1,000 students, other fans who have done the math found that Hogwarts would likely only teach around 280–300 students per year. As such, we've decided on a happy medium.

04. Due to the boom in technology in the muggle world, muggle studies has become a more popular branch in school and the ministry. Though the prejudice that muggles and muggle–borns face has quieted, many muggle–borns still face opposition from pureblood families—especially as the pureblood lineages fade.

05. Technology has also surfaced in the wizarding world. Things like cellphones and computers are now used by most witches and wizards, and Hogwarts allows students to use phones outside of class, and even boasts its own set of computers inside the library. These technological items are scientifically different from the ones we're familiar with. Because of this, people that use technology in the wizarding world cannot communicate with those in the muggle world through text, phonecall, or email, and must rely on letters.

06. Some purebloods, now referred to as purists, believe that introducing muggle–inspired technology to the wizarding world is wrong, therefore refuse to utilize it in any capacity. Many of the purists are open about their contempt, leading to a few impromptu duels between citizens. Tensions between purists and other wizards have risen sharply in the last year.

To view a list of remaining Pureblood families, check this thread.

We will update this thread with more canon information as the site grows.
