Some liberties have been taken with the ages. The story is easier to understand if you have some knowledge on Yu-Gi-Oh.

Dumbledore leaned back in his chair, taking this short moment to relax. A breeze blew in through the window, bringing the sounds of flapping owl wings. Four owls, each for young wizards in different continents.

The ministry had passed a new law demanding the wizarding schools of Europe extend invitations to all of those that had been born in their respective countries, including those no longer living there. And thus, four owls, all holding invitations to Hogwarts, school of witchcraft and wizardry. Three of the owls on the receiving ends already went to wizarding schools, so there would be the issue of never having transfers before. The fourth was an oddity, one that Dumbledore desired McGonagall's counsel on.

His gaze strayed to an open file on his desk, one with the picture of a boy with long white hair and a circular golden pendant hanging from his neck. This was the only picture out of all in the room that didn't move.

Ryou Bakura, age of 15, has been to many countries, never staying in one place for longer than six months. His mother and younger sister both died in a car accident when he was seven years old. He frequently releases bursts of accidental magic that is reported to put nearby humans, both muggle and magical, in comas for several years. For this reason he has been deemed dangerous to students and as such, does not attend our school. He is in possession of an Egyptian artifact that is considered precious to the Ishtal clan of Egypt. As it has not yet been confiscated from him, it is assumed one from the clan is tutoring him in wizardry.

Inside the letter Dumbledore found school records and medical files. The boy was nice enough and had good grades, but his medical records disturbed Dumbledore. Multiple times had he gone to hospitals with unexplained stab wounds, and once had been electrocuted during a card game tournament. Many doctors suspected he had a personality disorder, but he never stayed long enough for them to come to a solid diagnosis.

Yes, quite the oddity.

A tower of flame leapt up in the fireplace and died just as quickly, leaving McGonagall dusting soot off her emerald robes. She strided over and sat in the chair in front of Dumbledore's desk.

McGonagall opened her mouth-

"Minerva, I want to recruit Ryou Bakura into the Order. What do you think?"

So, think I should follow the book or revise it? Should I copy sections of the book when needed? Harry Potter crossovers are confusing like that.

Okay! First chapter done! Sorry it's a bit short. I prefer short first chapters. They're bite-sized so you can get a taste of the story, and you won't be put off by a really long chapter. Future chapters will be at least 1,000 words each. This story will be fun. Yes, fun. My first session of fun begins at the end of chapter two. It'll be the beginning of a number of headaches for Ryou...literally.
