Disclaimer: JKR owns them, so the following is merely my fantasy as always

The sun was setting over the graveyard located on a desolate cliff. Cold wind from the North Sea ruffled the man's black hair as he walked through the rusty iron gate, kicking off the long-abandoned wards.

The small gravestones were lying about on devastated ground, all decayed and cracked as if no one had visited this place for decades. The bespectacled eyes of the man skimmed through the most notorious names in wizarding world, now barely readable on eroded stone surfaces, then halted at one gray headstone.

He picked up a shovel and started digging.

As the darkness of dusk crept into the sky, top of a rotting coffin was shoveled out. He removed the lid with no hesitation.

Inside, mingled with black soil were white bones and tattered uniform of Azkaban prisoner. The man scrutinized the mass, then shoved his hands into the coffin and carefully removed something from the soil.

It was a skull, and its remaining few strands of white-blond shimmered dimly in the last of daylight.

The man cradled the skull in his arms affectionately. "Now I found you."
