Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secret – How will Dumbledore break the Blood Oath?

Entertaiment, News

One of the things that Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts fans debate the most is how Dumbledore was able to destroy the Blood Oath in Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secret.

The Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald film  revealed that Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald created the Blood Oath when they were young, thereby raising a theory that dragon’s blood could be used to break the Blood Oath. In Harry Potter, you also know that Dumbledore is famous for discovering the uses of dragon blood and the following translation will give some arguments for this theory.

At the end of Fantastic Beasts 2 , we also understand why Dumbledore refused to confront Grindelwald because the Blood Oath didn’t allow them to fight each other. The Fantastic Beasts series not only builds on the relationship between Grindelwald and Dumbledore, but also reveals a lot of knowledge about their magical wars, such as creating the Blood Oath together. In this Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore , we may discover how the Blood Oath will be broken before Dumbledore defeats Grindelwald.

Blood Oath to Grindelwald
In Fantastic Beasts 2 , the audience learns a part of Dumbledore’s past with the Dark Wizard. Throughout the film, the Ministry of Magic approaches him, asking him to fight Grindelwald, but Dumbledore refuses time and time again, just shaking his head and saying “I can’t”. This detail made the Ministry and fans think that he still cared so much about Grindelwald that he couldn’t join the war, even sympathizing with him.

However, the cause is not only love but also the Blood Oath that the two made when they were still close. When he looked into the Mirror, he saw the two of them cut their palms with their wands, squeeze their hands, and the drop of blood they had mixed was contained in a small vial that Grindelwald had made into a pendant. We still don’t know the Blood Oath that author J.K. Rowling created in the Fantastic Beasts world , but it could be the equivalent of the Oath of Non-betrayal – a spell that can’t be reversed or broken, so Dumbledore needs Newt working on his behalf and Grindelwald’s side immediately recruited Credence – a wizard built as if Dumbledore’s weak point.

That said, Grindelwald himself was not confident that the Blood Oath could stop Dumbledore from entering the war. And the future proved what he feared. The problem is how to break the Blood Oath.

Dumbledore couldn’t break the Blood Oath yet

Anyway, as we know in 1945, the Blood Oath between the two was also broken, but in 1927, Dumbledore couldn’t get rid of his vow never to go against his childhood sweetheart. However, he was about to break it when Newt asked Niffler to steal the magic pot that Grindelwald had kept with him all this time. Once you have a bottle, it won’t take long to break it.

Disobeying the Oath of Non-Betrayal meant death, while breaking the Blood Oath just broke the bottle? We still don’t know its consequences, just know that it makes the witches who take the Blood Oath against each other and the jar is the crux of the oath. However, breaking such a vessel of power is not easy, and even Dumbledore is not sure if it can be broken.

Theory: Dumbledore broke the Blood Oath with dragon’s blood?

Dumbledore broke the Blood Oath with dragon’s blood
During his wizarding career, Dumbledore has had many great feats, but only 3 are mentioned on the chocolate frog card: “Defeat the Dark Wizard Grindelwald in 1945, discover the 12 uses of dragon blood and achievements in alchemy with his partner Nicolas Flamel.”

Two of them have appeared in the Fantastic Beasts series (or are coming soon) so the story of dragon blood that can break the Blood Oath will be revealed soon. In the book that Rita Skeeter wrote about him after his death, the 12 uses of dragon blood have not been fully confirmed. Author Rowling also mentioned their uses are: washing the oven, removing acne/spotsand a bunch of other uses that haven’t been mentioned yet. Sounds very suspicious, doesn’t it?

If that’s all dragon blood is, is it worth it for Dumbledore to be known for those household uses? We can speculate that the remaining uses are far more formidable and impressive. The fact that the author did not reveal much in the Harry Potter series made it easier for her to develop Fantastic Beasts . Maybe Newt even helped Dumbledore with the dragon blood experiments.

How does this tie into Fantastic Beasts 3 and Nicolas Flamel?

Dumbledore. Maybe we also have the opportunity to meet other characters like Ivor Dillonsby – who tells Rita he discovered 8 uses of dragon blood when Dumbledore borrowed his notes.
