The students returned to a decidedly different Hogwarts than they had left. Within the first month of the year there were attacks by both a troll and banshee, as well as the death of Professor Addison. To add to the chaos that had gripped the school, Headmistress Hawthorne disappeared as abruptly as she had arrived. Her return would not be a welcome one however, as it saw her attack the very school that she had sworn to protect. Hawthorne was an Animagi, turning into a dragon she attacked the Hogwarts Express while Professors Li and Wentworth attempted to spirit a group of students away to Diagon Alley. After the students who remained entrenched in Hogwarts raised the ‘Down With Hawthorne Army’, the school went into full revolt and defeated Professor Hawthorne, beginning a new spring for Hogwarts.

Before the closing of the Triwizard Tournament that Headmistress Fischer left the school under mysterious circumstance, leaving the students in the very capable hands of Professor Oreyn Fox. With all the commotion in place from the Tournament and the school naming its 4th Headmaster in two years that the History of Magic professor, Oswalt Digby, unwittingly took possession of a cursed object. Shortly thereafter the school was flooded with frogs, which gave out an airborne toxin which nullified the use of magic wherever the frogs appeared, which was almost every inch of Hogwarts. It took the ingenuity of three students to follow the clues that lead to Professor Digby, who after holding the cursed object for a number of months had been entirely possessed by its evil magic and become a vehicle of ill-intent. With the help of the spirit of Nimue who had been resting peacefully in her cave beneath Hogwarts the students destroyed the source of the frogs, allowing their magic nullifying toxic to dissipate. Headmaster Fox caught notice of the commotion, and arrived and dueled an enraged Digby, disarming him and taking the cursed object, thus breaking the curse a mysterious Dark Wizard had placed upon him.
