Andromeda was the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, king and queen of the kingdom Ethiopia.
Her mother Cassiopeia boasted that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the nymph-daughters of the sea god Nereus and often seen accompanying Poseidon. To punish the Queen for her arrogance, Poseidon, brother to Zeus and god of the Sea, sent a sea monster (Cetus) to ravage the coast of Ethiopia including the kingdom of the vain Queen. The desperate King consulted the Oracle of Apollo, who announced that no respite would be found until the king sacrificed his virgin daughter Andromeda to the monster. She was chained naked to a rock on the coast.

Perseus was returning from having slain the Gorgon Medusa, he found Andromeda and slew Cetus by turning him to stone. He set her free, and married her in spite of Andromeda having been previously promised to her uncle Phineus. At the wedding a quarrel took place between the rivals, and Phineus was turned to stone by the sight of the Gorgon’s head.
Perseus and Andromeda had seven sons: Perseides, Perses, Alcaeus, Heleus, Mestor, Sthenelus, and Electryon, and one daughter, Gorgophone. Their descendants ruled Mycenae from Electryon down to Eurystheus, after whom Atreus attained the kingdom, and would also include the great hero Heracles.

When she died, Andromeda was hung in the sky as a constellation. (x)


passengers with larger daemons are asked not to travel at peak times where possible and to use the larger outer carriages. people with smaller daemons are asked to exercise caution when in crowded trains. as always please mind the gap.

they say that city daemons are generally smaller, less space you see, but london is a city of immigrants and commuters so you are just as likely to see a dog daemon as you are a lion. cities aren’t built for large daemons, there are crowds and narrow alleys and tubes and trains and buses to navigate but most people don’t let that stop them. there are cars and carriages and buses especially for big daemons and if your daemon is too big even for those well you can always ride them.


There is a room in the Department of Mysteries that is kept locked  at all times. It contains a force that is at once more wonderful and  more terrible than death, than human intelligence, than the forces of nature. It is also, perhaps, the most mysterious of the many subjects for study that reside there. It is the power held within that room that you possess in such quantities and which Voldemort has not at all.That power took you to save Sirius tonight. That power also saved you from possession by Voldemort, because he could not bear to reside in a body so full of the force he detests. In the end, it mattered not that you could not close your mind. It was your heart  that saved you.
