Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter or any other related titles. I own nothing and I am making no profits off of this story. I am only going to put this disclaimer up once so don't need to put it up again later. This does not mean that I am claiming the ideas or characters in the other chapters as my own. I hope that everyone is alright with this and will not sue me for being to lazy to put up a disclaimer in every chapter. If it turns out that it is NOT ok with someone then at least give me a warning before you sue me.

AN: This is my first story, so please be nice! Also, please review. Constructive criticism is accepted and appreciated, but flames will be ignored and trashed. Now, onto the story!

The world is a cruel place.

The government is run by power hungry politicians who seek nothing but power and care about nothing but their reputation and none but themselves. If you deny this then you are probably completely blind to the world around you and a future pawn of some huge metaphorical and political chess game involving you sacrificing every thing you ever worked for in favor of a great puppet master's gain.

Sadly, this happens all too often. Every day people suffer from someone else's actions, all because of someone else trying to claw their way to power and thus eliminating anyone in their way.

After all, the victims are just useless pawns, waiting to be disposed of. Right?

Unfortunately this is how the wizarding world works and there are very, very few people in this world who can either wield power honestly and properly or resist the temptation of power completely, knowing that power corrupts the wielder.

However, the few people who can wield such responsibility and control are often the ones who have the mindset most worthy for the job. They truly care about the people and wellbeing of their charges, and seek no personal gain in return for their time and generosity.

Like I said, there are few of these people though, and they usually come with a price.

You see, those who wish to stop corruption want to do so for one main reason: they have seen the results of corruption, and sometimes have even been victim to it at some point. They have felt the greed and hunger for power that has caused so much pain and suffering, and vow to stop it from happening ever again, so no one has to face such a cruel fate again. These are people who are few and far between and have very little in numbers, but their goals and morals are that of ten thousand men combined.

If you don't agree with me, so be it. However, I urge you to listen just a little longer to a tale of one such person before you make up your mind. For you see, this is the story of a boy who was constantly wronged at every turn in every way possible, yet he weathered the storm and eventually rose to power to make this world a better place.

This is the story of Harry James Potter, or as he is known in the majority of this story, Harris Maximus Peverell, the worlds forgotten prodigy.
