The Great Hall was filled with whispers. A rumor was going around that Hogwarts' new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor was coming straight from Azkaban. The dementors currently roaming the castle grounds only seemed to confirm this. Thunder boomed from the enchanted ceiling, increasing the ominous mood. Suddenly, the large oak doors slammed open. A woman stood in the entryway, with two men on either side of her. Guards, no doubt. As she walked into the Great Hall, more features became noticeable. She wore her hair in pigtails, one of which was dyed blue and the other pink. She wore a loose, white prisoner's outfit, no wizard robe. One of the guards flicked his wand, undoing the handcuffs on her wrists. Albus Dumbledore cleared his throat, gaining everyone's attention. "Miss Quinzel, welcome to Hogwarts."
