Laws of Blood Purity

The 1970's marked the rise of the most dangerous wizard of all times. Voldemort, descendant of Slytherin on his mother's side, and half Muggle on his father's side, became a powerful and bitter man whose goal, beyond the quest for absolute power, was the eradication of freedom and knowledge in the Wizarding world. Though he was fought by many, it took the combined strength of the Ministry of Magic and the heroic Harry Potter to permanently defeat him. Voldemort was an example of the extent to which half-bloods and Muggle-borns are goaded by resentment. Their source of magic, weaker and tarnished, cannot bestow them the brilliant destiny promised to pure-bloods. Although in previous occasions the governments have tried to incorporate them regardless in everyday life, it is now obvious, following Voldemort's rise and fall, that independently from being unworthy of living in our community, they are also a threat for it.

Article one: No union between a pure-blood and a half-blood, Muggle-born, Squib or Muggle will be acknowledged by the Ministry of Magic. The pure-blood will not be authorized to pass on any of his magical belongings to any offspring sprung from said union under any circumstances.

Article two: No British wizarding school or company is to offer education and/or working posts to half-bloods, Squibs and Muggle-borns. Any such establishment found infringing this article will be subject to a hefty fine, if not permanent closure.

Article three: No half-blood, Muggle-born, Squib or Muggle, under warning, will be allowed into public Wizarding places such as Stonehenge City, Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade Village, and so forth. Detection spells will be placed to this effect.

Article four: Any witch or wizard who is found dispossessed of magical abilities, must be registered at the Department for the Regulation of Magical Creatures, Squib Division. Failure to do so will result in a hefty fine and withdrawal of paternal authority and custody of the affected.

Registered Squibs will have access to the government's gratuitous services for children with magical disabilities, including specialized Medical Services, basic education, and Life Insurance.

Any Squib who shows signs of magic strong enough to aspire a magical education posterior to their registration at the Department for the Control of Magical Creatures, Squib division, will have the right to apply to the Magical Skills Verification Test, in the same department, to determine whether he/she is eligible to join the magical community.

Any Squib found in illegal possession or usage of a wand or any other magical device will be subject to the maximum penalty, which consists in the permanent expulsion from the wizarding world.

Article five: Wizards are authorized to work and/or associate with Muggle companies, as well as half-blood, Muggle-born, Squib, and Muggle individuals, provided that the partnership is entirely profitable to the wizard and/or wizarding community. Ties established at work must in not invade the pure-blood wizard's private life in any way.

Lastly, it is strongly recommended to have only pure-blood friends and acquaintances.
