If the universe created by JK Rowling is certainly not as rich as that of Tolkien with The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the world of wizards are also full of secrets. For example, it is possible that Flight of death be linked to a character Fantastic Beasts in a totally unexpected way!
Gaunt and Bellebosse, same fight
If you know a bit about the saga Harry Potterthere is no need to introduce yourself Tom Riddle, a gifted wizard who becomes the terrible Voldemort, feared by all but who did not manage to kill the young Harry Potter, who will even sign his loss. But let’s go back long before that, by evoking a character less known to the general public: Croyance Bellebosse (Ezra Miller), the son of Albus Dumbledore’s brother, Aberforth, and an unknown mother. What if, in fact, this one was a Gaunt?
According to a theory about Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, Credence would be related to Voldemort because he would be a member of the Gaunt family, from which comes the mother of the one who was then still called Tom Riddle, Merope Gaunt. A first clue could only be spotted by English speakers: Croyance Bellebosse’s surname, in VO, is “Barebone”, which he takes from his adoptive mother, Mary Lou. In English, this term refers to a very thin person, whose bones can be seen through the skin. The term “gaunt” meanwhile translates as “emaciated”, which means more or less the same thing, and which very well defines the physique of Croyance. However, we know that JK Rowling never chooses the names she gives to her characters by chance.
Moreover, we know that Croyance spent his childhood in New York, and that Gaunts lived in the United States, after Isolt Sayre, Rionach Sayre’s daughter, née Gaunt, fled there to escape her aunt. In the wizarding world, she is known for co-founding the Ilvermorny School of Sorcery.
A troubling friendship and a prophecy to fulfill
But the theory that Croyance’s biological mother would be a Gaunt is not only based on this famous family name. From a more pragmatic point of view, let us recall that we discover, in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwaldthathe becomes a strong friend of the young woman named Nagini. This is a Maledictus, a being touched by a curse of blood transforming it little by little into a creature. In his case, it is a snake, the same one that we see in the saga Harry Potterafter Voldemort managed to manipulate her into her final reptile form. If Creed was a Gaunt, even mastered parseltongue so dear to pureblood wizards and descendants of Salazar Slytherin, this could explain why a strong bond was created between the two characters.
To end on a mystical note, let’s talk about The Predictions of Tycho Dodonus, a book bringing together a whole bunch of prophecies and introduced into the saga of Fantastic Beasts. One of them, the twentieth, evokes this: “A son banished from his family, a daughter in great sorrow, the avenger reappears, out of the waves, winged”. Difficult, then, not to see in Belief “the banished son”, after he was sent to New York, abandoned by his mother and, by necessity, by his father as well.
The “girl in great sorrow” would evoke the young man’s mothersorry for sending her son away from her and possibly being rejected by her family for mating with Aberforth Dumbledore, a half-blood, and therefore failing to preserve the “pure blood “Wizards. About the “got out[e] waves”, we will simply recall that Croyance is one of the few survivors of the shipwreck of the ship in which he crossed the ocean to America.
That’s a lot of coincidences, right? Do not hesitate to give us your opinion on this theory in comments!
