Long ago, the earth was ruled by two races, HUMANS and MONSTERS. They existed peacefully for a time, but eventually, war broke out. Both sides suffered heavy losses, but in the end, the HUMANS were victorious. SEVEN of their mightiest and wisest WIZARDS sealed the surviving MONSTERS underneath MT. EBOTT, where they remained trapped and forgotten for thousands of years.
About 13 years ago…
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named murdered Lily and James Potter, and forever marking their infant son, Harry, as The Boy Who Lived, fated to one day duel the Dark Lord for the fate of the world.
A Few Weeks Ago…
Shortly before Harry Potter got his first letter from Hogwarts, a child roughly his age climbed Mt. Ebott, not intending to return. Once in the Underground, the uncommonly kind child soon befriended every monster in the Underground and helped them break the BARRIER that had kept them trapped for so long.
