Gellerd Grindelwald, the second darkest wizard of all time. How did he learn of the Deathly Hallows? How did he rise to power? How was Albus Dumbledore able to defeat him? And why, at the end of his life, did he try to protect the one who had locked him away?

Then the King flew into a passion, and ordered a dark tower to be built, into which no ray of sunlight or moonlight should enter. When it was finished, he said, “Therein shalt thou be imprisoned for seven years, and then I will come and see if thy perverse spirit is broken.” Meat and drink for the seven years were carried into the tower, and then she and her waiting-woman were led into it and walled up, and thus cut off from the sky and from the earth...

By now, the sight of blue lightning shooting through the streets of Shady Creek wasn't anything to write home about. Bram still remembered a few months prior when his streak of blue lightning was simply something a few internet conspirators blogged about. Sometimes, Bram thought those days were easier than seeing his own masked face on the news every day under a headline that read, "BLUE CHARGE SAVES THE DAY AGAIN".
He didn't pick the name, but it was starting to grow on him.
