The Council Chief stood up to open the meeting, slipped on a pile of Porlock dung and ran cursing from the hall. As we see, the mere possession of two legs was no guarantee that a magical creature could or would take an interest in the affairs of wizard government. All those who could make themselves understood to Council members were therefore invited to join the next meeting.
Once again, however, there were problems. Trolls who had been taught a few simple sentences by the goblins proceeded to destroy the hall as before. Not until were definitions found that most of the magical community found acceptable. Naturally, the matter has not rested there. Acromantulas and Manticores are capable of intelligent speech but will attempt to devour any human that goes near them.
The sphinx talks only in puzzles and riddles, and is violent when given the wrong answer. Wherever there is continued uncertainty about the classification of a beast in the following pages, I have noted it in the entry for that creature. Let us now turn to the one question that witches and wizards ask more than any other when the conversation turns to Magizoology: A year later the merpeople made the same request.
The Ministry of Magic accepted their demands reluctantly. Astonishing though it may seem to many wizards, Muggles have not always been ignorant of the magical and monstrous creatures that we have worked so long and hard to hide.
A glance through Muggle art and literature of the Middle Ages reveals that many of the creatures they now believe to be imaginary were then known to be real. The dragon, the griffin, the unicorn, the phoenix, the centaur — these and more are represented in Muggle works of that period, though usually with almost comical inexactitude. However, a closer examination of Muggle bestiaries of that period demonstrates that most magical beasts either escaped Muggle notice completely or were mistaken for something else.
Examine this surviving fragment of manuscript, written by one Brother Benedict, a Franciscan monk from Worcestershire: Todaye while travailing in the Herbe Garden, I did push aside the basil to discover a Ferret of monstrous size. As my nose was still swollen and bloody I was excused Vespers. Evidently our Muggle friend had unearthed not a ferret, as he supposed, but a Jarvey, most likely in pursuit of its favourite prey, gnomes.
Muggle persecution of wizards at this time was reaching a pitch hitherto unknown and sightings of such beasts as dragons and Hippogriffs were contributing to Muggle hysteria. The International Confederation of Wizards argued the matter out at their famous summit meeting of No fewer than seven weeks of sometimes acrimonious discussion between wizards of all nationalities were devoted to the troublesome question of magical creatures.
How many species would we be able to conceal from Muggle notice and which should they be? Where and how should we hide them? The debate raged on, some creatures oblivious to the fact that their destiny was being decided, others contributing to the debate. This number was increased over the following century, as wizards became more confident in their methods of concealment.
In , Clause 73 was inserted in the International Code of Wizarding Secrecy, to which wizard ministries worldwide conform today: Older British readers will remember the Ilfracombe Incident of , when a rogue Welsh Green dragon swooped down upon a crowded beach full of sunbathing Muggles. Fatalities were mercifully prevented by the brave actions of a holidaying wizarding family subsequently awarded Orders of Merlin, First Class , when they immediately performed the largest batch of Memory Charms this century on the inhabitants of Ilfracombe, thus narrowly averting catastrophe.
Tibet and Scotland are two of the most persistent offenders. Muggle sightings of the yeti have been so numerous that the International Confederation of Wizards felt it necessary to station an International Task Force in the mountains on a permanent basis.
