Penelope's Prefect Badge

Penelope's Prefect Badge

A Prefect Badge in Slytherin's house colours. The metal badge is tarnished and the colours have begun to fade, as if it hasn't been cared for in a while.

Everyone was worried about Penelope Padgett. It wasn't because she was from Slytherin, mind you.
Her parents were open supporters of You-Know-Who... Her mum's in Azkaban. There was some reason for a bit of caution.
Penelope Padgett was one of the finest candidates I've ever seen. No matter who her parents were, she was qualified.
And she proved it by becoming a full-fledged Auror within two years of joining our department.

Penelope's Broom

Penelope's Broom

A Comet 290, made by Comet Trading Company. The handle has been worn with age, and “If lost, return to Penelope Padgett” has been magically carved into the wood, near the base of the broom.

Penelope and I used to talk about Quidditch all the time in the office. She was a huge fan of the Pride of Portree.
She told me that her Comet was the last thing she received from her mother before she was sent to Azkaban. It's the only thing she has to remember her by.
Penelope favoured her broom to travel with during field work instead of Apparating. She said it was because of her motion sickness...
Now I wonder if she was telling me the whole story…

The London Five

The London Five

An issue of the Daily Prophet. The headline reads: “FIVE GO MISSING IN LONDON - INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY” The Prophet lists the missing: Riya Patel, Timothy Hale, Kit Gerrard, Genevieve Bladt, and Penelope Fawley.

The London Five. The Ministry never had an event quite like this before - five disappearances all within a few hours, with no evidence, and no witnesses.
Someone was capable of making Aurors disappear without a trace... The story took hold across the entire wizarding world.

Coded Message

Coded Message

An encrypted note in Penelope's precise script. It reads: “Ur'k t ssl!”

This is another of those Muggle puzzles. Unless you know the code, it's useless. She should have just used magic like a normal person.
Apparently she and Fawley liked to communicate in secret.
How romantic.

Gethsemane's Warning

Gethsemane's Warning

A Ministry memo addressed to Harry Potter, from Gethsemane Prickle: “Be careful with that Padgett woman, Potter. Her parents were followers of You-Know-Who, and you know the apple rarely falls far from the tree. She's trouble, mark my words.”

I warned them about her then, and now I have been proven correct. A dirigible plum doesn't just float away from the bush.
Penelope has been missing for years.
Exactly. Totally gone. Even Potter can't find her. And now, coincidently, her husband has caused the Calamity.
If you think the Calamity isn't tied to her disappearance, you are naive.

Penelope's Promotion

Penelope's Promotion

An Internal Ministry Memo written by Harry Potter, announcing Penelope Padgett's promotion to the rank of Auror. The memo details her accomplishments within the Department of Magical Law Enforcement as reason behind the promotion.

There was no argument - Penelope excelled in her work within the Department. There was an opening and she was the best candidate.
But she was never a rule follower.
This isn't an uncommon point of view amongst Aurors. Many prefer doing things their own way, and her work was outstanding...
But when she went missing there wasn't much for me follow. She was SO secretive...
