Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) Director: Miranda Ferguson
The year is 1927 and Newt Scamander’s release of magical beasts in the heart of New York City mere months before has left the wizarding community in the United States on edge. To make matters worse, the threat of an uprising against the International Statute of Secrecy has increased despite Gellert Grindelwald's recent imprisonment. Wizard-No Maj relations are at their lowest point since the Salem Witch Trials, and it is up to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) to find a way to protect its own while ensuring the continuation of wizarding practices in the U.S. With the Magical Exposure Threat Level set to a ‘Level 6: Emergency,’ it will be up to the congressional members to determine the fate of this generation, wizard and No-Maj alike. Can the two groups continue to coexist without the revelation of the magical community? Will the threat of an uprising materialize into something more substantial? In this new iteration of J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the wizarding world hangs in the balance and this committee may be its last hope of survival.
