Chapter 5-3 The Advance Guard

  • Harry sends owls to Sirius, Ron and Hermione with Hedwig, demanding to know what's going on. He waits for days. Four days later, Uncle Vernon tells Harry they're going out. Harry hears sounds coming from below. The lock on his bedroom door clicks and swings open. He goes out and downstairs he hears the voice of Moody and Lupin. Someone uses a Lumos to make some light. Harry meets everybody and is told they're taking him to Headquarters. Besides Moody and Lupin, there are Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Elphias Doge, Dedalus Diggle, Emmeline Vance, Sturgis Podmore and Hestia Jones.
  • Tonks goes upstairs with Harry to get his stuff. Looking in a mirror she changes her hair colour while Harry looks at her over the top of "Quidditch Teams of Britain and Ireland". She explains she's a Metamorphmagus; she can change her appearance at will. She was born one. She got top marks in Concealment and Disguise during Auror training. Kingsley is also an auror. She only qualified a year ago and had nearly failed in Stealth and Tracking. Tonks uses a pack spell to pack Harry's trunk and a Scourgify to clean Hedwig's cage. She's impressed with Harry's Firebolt, as she only has a Comet Two Sixty. Next she uses a Locomotor trunk spell to take his trunk downstairs.
  • Moody has to Disillusion Harry before they leave. He seems to have become like a human chameleon, resembling invisibility. They mount their brooms when they see the first signal, a shower of bright red sparks among the stars, and fly off when they see the green second signal.
  • After a while they descent into a street. Moody uses a Put-Outer to make the street dark. They head down the streets. Moody shows Harry a piece of parchment stating the location where they arrived. It's the Headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, found at number twelve Grimmauld Place, London.
