Meanwhile, Jerry Apparated and returns to his room at the Leaky Cauldron again. Telling Sirius about the Horcrux and sealing Voldemort was actually his intention.
The purpose is to give Dumbledore peace of mind through the mouth of Sirius. Otherwise, with the addition of the Sorcerer’s Stone stolen and Azkaban disappeared. It would be hard for Dumbledore to connect the dots that something bad is coming later.
If Dumbledore thinks that Voldemort borrowed the Sorcerer’s Stone, and begins to gather his Death Eaters to prepare for the second wizarding war, then things will be chaotic. This is not a good thing for Jerry. What he needs is a peaceful wizarding world.
Although Dumbledore may not necessarily believe the information he gets, at least he will not think that this Wizard named “J” is on the same side as Voldemort. Dumbledore himself didn’t know that Voldemort had made some Horcruxes before.
Finally, as for his fake identity, he will probably use it more later in the future.
“Now, what can you do?” Entering the suitcase and picking up the locket, Jerry began to carry out various experiments and research on it.
After seven or eight hours from day to night, Jerry finally figured out roughly the effect of the Slytherin Locket. To put it bluntly, it is mind control, and in layman’s terms, it can also be called hypnosis.
It’s different from the Imperius Curse, which must be controlled continuously. Once the Imperius Curse is stopped, the target will recover. Slytherin’s locket can be used to control the target for a long time. But like all mind control magic, if the target’s will is strong enough, then it can be immune to the effect.
No wonder when watching the movie at that time, whoever took the locket would be influenced by Voldemort’s soul inside. The effect is not primarily because of Voldemort’s soul but in the effects of the Slytherin Locket.
When he watched it, he was a bit confused. Why did other Horcruxes not show the ability to affect the spirit of others?
After all, powerful enemies are generally not weak and weak enemies are not particularly important to control or not. But he is currently strong. He is not much weaker than the four founders who created Hogwarts, and their magical items will only help him a little.
If this is an ordinary wizard, whether it is Ravenclaw’s diadem or Slytherin’s locket, if it is used well, it can greatly improve their strength.
Putting away the locket, Jerry left the suitcase and walked in the direction of Gringotts.
According to the memory of his previous life and the information he had obtained from Bellatrix Lestrange. Voldemort’s Horcrux, the Hufflepuff Cup, is hidden in the Lestrange vault at Gringotts.
Twelve years ago, before he was killed, Voldemort gave the two Horcruxes, the Hufflepuff Cup, and his diary to his two most trusted followers, Bellatrix Lestrange and Lucius Malfoy.
Bellatrix hid the cup in her vault at Gringotts, and Lucius hid the diary in his family’s manor. Bellatrix is really loyal to Voldemort, and Lucius follows Voldemort only because of Voldemort’s power and status.
Therefore, he needs to sneak into Gringotts and quietly take away the Hufflepuff Gold Cup from the Lestrange vault in Gringotts. It was a vault comprised of the Lestrange family’s wealth from generation to generation.
Gringotts is known as the safest place in the world except for Hogwarts, not only because there are many wizards, goblins, and a powerful dragon as a guard. But also because there are various detection magics in the entire Gringotts vault.
Fortunately, these are not a problem for Jerry. Because he can take care of it easily by blocking his magic fluctuation, the Gringotts magic detection alarm is basically ineffective to him.
Jerry estimated that Quirrell could get past the heavily guarded Gringotts to Dumbledore’s Vault No. 713, where the Sorcerer’s Stone was hidden because Voldemort taught him the same spell as him.
It was already midnight. The doors of Gringotts were locked and closed.
Instead of going through the main entrance, Jerry went around to a window on the side of Gringotts. He opened the window with a spell and sneaked in after applying several charms to make himself undetected.
Several guards were patrolling inside Gringotts, but because of the many spells attached to Jerry’s body, they were completely unaware of his presence.
When he flew to the track of Gringotts, he did not use the cart at all but flew directly along the track to the location of the vault.
Normal thieves need to use a cart to go to the underground vault. Because few people can use the Flight Magic, and using the cart will inevitably alert the goblin guards. Gringotts built the vault deep underground for a reason.
However, his Flight Magic will be common magic once Jerry’s book is released.
Because Jerry’s magic book disassembles the principle of new magic in detail and how to learn them more effectively and easily, it will be easier to learn, unlike Apparition.
After flying along the track to the location of the underground vault, the first thing that caught his eye was not the vaults but a dragon bound by chains.
It was a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon, the largest dragon in the world, and Jerry thought it was at least twice as big as Norbert.
It is not difficult for him to contract dragons. He could go to Romania, where Ron’s brother Charlie is located, and there will be plenty of dragons for him to pick up on.
