  4. Alternate title : FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WAIT A SECOND IS CREDENCE A DESCENDANT OF SALAZAR SLYTHERIN
  5. So hear me out
  6. All we really know about Credence is that he had a magical mother
    And that Ezra Miller is fine even as a destroyed person. Or maybe damaged goods are my thing that's a debate for another time.
  7. BUT
  8. When combing through Pottermore today
  9. I remembered Martha
  10. The daughter of the founders of Ilvermorny
  11. Who was a squib and loved a no maj
  12. And while the story is very clear about her magical twin sister Rionach not procreating because she wanted to end the family line or feared their power or whatever
  13. This is pretty vague
    "Martha, the elder of James and Isolt’s twins, was a Squib. Deeply loved though Martha was by her parents and adoptive brothers, it was painful for her to grow up at Ilvermorny when she was unable to perform magic. She eventually married the non-magical brother of a friend from the Pocomtuc tribe and lived henceforth as a No-Maj"
  14. No mention of babies or no babies
  15. So it's reasonable to believe that Martha raised no maj babies
  16. And as we know, this thing is not entirely genetic
  17. So it could be possible that Credence and his "wicked" mother
  18. Were generations removed from the knowledge of their ancient magical bloodline
  19. Which would explain his immense power!
  20. Annnnnndddd I love the Harry Potter universe and need to find some other hobby probably
  21. Jk this just probably means I'm going to see fantastic beasts a third time to look for clues
  22. Final thought : young tom riddle looks a little like him, no?
