Alchemy has gotten a bad reputation over the millennia, but this archaic science is a large part of the internal logic and integrity J.K. Rowling creates in her Harry Potter canon. We will uncover the rest of the Weasley family, the triangle between Harry, Dumbledore and Lord Voldemort, and the lesser known alchemical characters within the series that still played major roles. Rowling used this structure to create all sorts of puzzles and triangles – come discover them for yourselves.
