Transcribed Tome

Transcribed Tome

An ancient tome, meticulously cleaned and stored. There are several loose sheafs of paper tucked into the book, scribed in Grim Fawley's small, precise handwriting.

Fawley was incredibly skilled in rune translation and ancient languages. This particular tome had never been translated. Too difficult, apparently.
But Fawley ran through it like it was nothing. He was being wasted with the Aurors...
I tried to transfer him into my department, but his wife wanted him to be an Unspeakable. And he wanted whatever she wanted...
In light of recent events, it appears I got very lucky.

Grim's Work - Shard 1

Grim's Work

A collection of memos regarding Grim Fawley's work at the Ministry.

An internal Ministry Memo, listing new appointments to the Ministry of Magic. Grim Fawley is assigned to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

Grim was assigned to my Department when he first entered the Ministry. I didn't know much about him.
He was a research assistant, compiling and fact-checking evidence for the Aurors working in the Department.
It's not an easy job, most Aurors don't want to do that paperwork. But Grim was meticulous. He was brilliant.

Grim's Work - Shard 2

Grim's Work

A collection of memos regarding Grim Fawley's work at the Ministry.

A memo written in Gareth Greengrass's elaborate script, announcing the promotion of one Grim Fawley to the role of Unspeakable.

There were some rumours going around that Gareth Greengrass was showing favouritism to Grim because he was close to Penelope.
That's not fair to Grim. He worked very hard. Transferring into that Department is like nothing else. The secrecy, the magical accumen...
Perhaps Penelope inspired him to pursue the transfer, but the work to get the job? That was all Fawley.

Grim's Work - Shard 3

Grim's Work

A collection of memos regarding Grim Fawley's work at the Ministry.

An evaluation written by Gareth Greengrass and co-signed by Mordecai Berrycloth:

"Fawley has shown incredible growth within the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and has been vital to the apprehension of several Dark wizards. I believe his talents would be an incredible asset to the Department of Mysteries, and I have recommended Fawley to be promoted to Unspeakable. - Gareth Greengrass."

Mordecai Berrycloth is not just any Auror. His co-signing is probably what pushed Grim's application over the top.
Mordecai wanted to write his own letter, but he settled for a co-signature. That's how much he respected Grim.

Grim's Work - Shard 4

Grim's Work

A collection of memos regarding Grim Fawley's work at the Ministry.

An official Ministry evaluation, dated a year after Grim Fawley joined the Department of Mysteries:

"Despite personal misgivings regarding Mr. Fawley's commitment to the role, he has surpassed all expectations during his trial period. - Albert Sallow."

Sallow didn't trust me, when I recommended Grim for his promotion.
He thought he was too young, too green. Lacked in passion. He didn't see the talent.
But eventually Albert saw what I did the year before, and perhaps what we're all seeing now. Grim Fawley is not to be underestimated.

Grim's Work - Shard 5

Grim's Work

A collection of memos regarding Grim Fawley's work at the Ministry.

An Incident Report filed with the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, detailing the apprehension of a Dark wizard. The lead Auror on the case was Penelope Padgett, and Grim Fawley was the Head research assistant.

One year, at a Christmas party, Grim told me that he and Penelope had been going out a year before they told anyone.
He was afraid of being transferred out of the department, so they kept it secret. It is quite romantic if you think about it...
Falling in love as you're solving crimes. The whole thing is like a novel with a bad ending.

Unspeakables Expanding!

Unspeakables Expanding!

An issue of the Quibbler, its headline reading “The Unspeakables Expand in Secret! What Are They Hiding?” The issue is dated around the time Grim Fawley was promoted.

Can I tell you a secret? Sometimes the Quibbler gets it right. This was not one of those cases.
We had a 143 year old retire because he kept forgetting everything - literally, everything.
Another member wanted to go and write novels. So, we replaced them both - with Grim and Regina Rowle. Simple.

Skeleton Key

Skeleton Key

A mysterious gold key, worn from use.

That's the key Grim was given upon his promotion to Unspeakable.
All Unspeakables are given keys to the Department of Mysteries, and we're the only ones who are allowed into the Department.
If this key that you found had somehow gotten into the wrong hands... it could have been catastrophic.

Unspeakables Badge

Unspeakables Badge

A Ministry Identification Card, featuring a photograph of Grim Fawley. The credentials list Fawley as an Unspeakable, with clearance for the Department of Mysteries.

I remember when the rumours started circulating that Grim Fawley was up for promotion to Unspeakable.
It seemed like an odd fit - he was so quiet unless you knew him. Being an Unspeakable felt like it was... almost above him?
I know that sounds harsh but, you had to know him. It was such a jump
