2 May, 1998 · The Battle of Hogwarts
“I know that you are preparing to fight. Your efforts are futile.
You cannot fight me. I do not want to kill you. I have great
respect for the teachers of Hogwarts. I do not want to spill
magical blood. Give me Harry Potter, and none shall be
harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school
untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.
You have until midnight.”
