    Summary

    The man is still at the bar as Basil approaches. He sticks out even more in his brown suit, conspicuous among the bright colors, looking as apart, as mismatched to this place as anyone could, his expression flat, almost dour, eyes chilly, close-cropped hair rust-red in the watery light. He has a thin, solemn face and sallow features sharp enough to cut. A full mustache sits, meticulously sculpted, as though carved, on his upper lip. Something aggressive, insistent about that, asserting yes, this is my face, the face of a serious man, to be taken seriously.

    The son of a disgraced businessman and an English country doctor meet in Greenwich Village in 1949.

    Summary

    The first thing Percival Graves does after being released back into the world is buy a new wand. The Aurors recovered his ebony wand from Grindelwald but Graves can’t even look at it, let alone pick it up. He goes to Greymalkin’s the minute he’s let out of the hospital and tries half a dozen wands. Some spark, a few smoke, but only one really works. The wand that chooses him is raw aspen, whiter than bone and so rough that Graves gives himself a splinter conjuring up a storm of brilliant red birds.

    Greymalkin eyes the wand distrustfully. “Eleven and a half inches,” he says, sounding sour. “With a dragon heartstring core. One of Ollivander’s. Shoddy work, if you ask me.”

    The wand hums against his fingertips. Graves buys it, tucks it up under his sleeve, and keeps it there, splinters and all, until he manages to fall into a fitful sleep later that night.

    The second thing Graves does is quit his job, because honestly.

    The third thing Graves does is get jumped by Credence Barebone in an alley.

    Summary

He congratulates himself when the program becomes a massive success, unaware of the fact that hackers have changed the coding to dress his sim in increasingly scandalous outfits. When Hux finds out that Ren is spending a large amount of time in the sim he gets suspicious and pulls up the video logs of Ren's sessions, only to realize that Ren is seeking much more than combat training from Hux's sim. After some thought and planning, Hux decides to give Ren the real thing.
