It’s been five years since the events of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” and fans are still wondering what happened to Credence Barebone. Here’s what we know so far:
The Search for Credence
After Credence fled Paris, the search for him intensified. The Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards worked together to find him, but he remained elusive. It was rumored that he had joined a group of rogue wizards who were opposed to the Ministry’s policies.
The Return of Grindelwald
In 2022, Gellert Grindelwald escaped from his prison in Nurmengard. He immediately resumed his plans for a wizarding revolution and began recruiting followers. It was rumored that Credence was among them.
The Battle of Hogwarts
On May 2, 2023, Grindelwald and his followers launched an attack on Hogwarts. The battle was fierce, and many lives were lost. In the end, Grindelwald was defeated, but Credence’s fate remained unknown.
After the Battle of Hogwarts, the wizarding world was left in chaos. The Ministry of Magic was restructured, and many former Death Eaters and Grindelwald supporters were brought to justice. However, Credence was still missing.
The Search Continues
Despite the chaos, the search for Credence continued. New leads were followed, and old ones were revisited. Finally, in the summer of 2023, a group of wizards discovered a hidden community of rogue wizards in the Scottish Highlands.
Among the rogue wizards was Credence Barebone. He had been living among them for the past year, learning about their ways and beliefs. When he was reunited with the wizarding world, he was a changed man.
The New Credence
Credence had abandoned his former name and embraced his new identity as Aurelius Dumbledore. He revealed that he was the long-lost brother of Albus Dumbledore and that Grindelwald had been using him to find the Elder Wand.
Credence/Aurelius was welcomed back into the wizarding world, but many questions remained. Would he be accepted by the Dumbledore family? Would he be able to forgive Grindelwald for using him? Only time will tell.
So, what happened to Credence in 2023? He was found, reunited with the wizarding world, and revealed to be the brother of Albus Dumbledore. It was a surprising twist that left fans eager for more. We can’t wait to see what happens next in the wizarding world.
