"I want to take a deeper look into the Confoundables. They're just so incredibly chaotic and unpredictable - precisely the opposite of the Foundables."
"Is the Calamity a single spell? Multiple spells?"
"We should do some work gathering any evidence we can from Confoundables."
Recover 2 Pixie Wings from Pixie Confoundables.
"These are, in every way, standard Pixie wings."
"Amazing. Our understanding of the Confoundables is that they are magical manifestations, but maybe they're not. Perhaps they're like Foundables - they're taken."
"Oh look, they've disappeared..."
"Apparently, the Confoundable spell can be a bit slow picking up after itself. That may present an opportunity for study."
Return 2 Legends of Hogwarts Family Foundables.
"I wonder - are the magical creatures that we return a memory of that creature or is the actual creature taken?"
"I can say unequivocally that at least in some cases the creature is taken, ripped from its habitat. Until they are returned they are at the mercy of the Calamity."
"That sounds absolutely awful."
"It is. Some of them seem genuinely affected by it. There is nothing sadder than a depressed niffler. "
Recover 2 Fire Embers from Fire Confoundables.
"Fire. Ice. Some Confoundables are fascinating. Who thinks of protecting something by encasing it in magical fire?"
"It is odd. Quite a few Confoundables are elemental, and in every case they work to protect the Foundable from being returned."
"What if the Confoundables are there for a different reason? What if they are there to ensure the Foundable can only be returned by someone capable enough?"
"Interesting. That might explain why some are easier to return than others."
