What if Roles were Reversed? ~ Harry Potter Alternate Universe

I often wondered, What if good guys were the bad guys and bad guys were the good ones? Sounds interesting, Right?

So let’s delve into HARRY POTTER Universe and see what we can come up with!


What i Imagine is, the death eaters are good folks and they are named death eaters because they fight death in a good way, they fight to protect people and hang their lives on line just so that they can help needy people from the claws of death, Hence, Death Eaters!

1. Lucius Malfoy 

Imagine Lucius Malfoy as a good guy, he will be the most voted Minister of Magic, who on sides donate a lot of money in charity as that can be good as anything, he already comes from a lot of money and nothing beats #PayingItForward. Plus, he invest his limitless amount of money in business investment and give employment opportunities to people in need with secure benefits. Now wouldn’t that be lovely? 🙂

2. Bellatrix Lestrange

Imagine Bellatrix Lestrange as childlike, carefree, Independent Potion Mistress. She is quite Intelligent and her intelligence helps cure a lot of diseases and conditions. She works in lab all day and work to find much cheaper and inexpensive potions which even poor can afford, She is working on a cure for lyncathrophy and even though she haven’t been able to be successful yet, she hasn’t given up either.

3. Fenrir Greyback 

Even though he is a Werewolf, he is a respected werewolf of society which helps all the people going through the curse of Lyncathrophy, He advocates for the rights of creature like him and has been part of many rally and always look forward to any creature who is suffering, Even though with Lucius Malfoy as the Minister of Magic, The Wizengamot is Full of Order of Phoenix members and so far the bad is winning over good in the fight of giving equal rights to creatures, creatures who main figure head is Fenrir Greyback.

4. Peter Pettigrew

Peter Pettigrew, An animagus, in this universe is reformed member of death eaters. He is well efficient for gathering information as he can hide in nook of places and most of the times Homenum Revelio can’t beat the rat animagus. He collects intel and works as spy for death eaters. Being a Gryffindor, he was a member of dark order of phoenix but turncoat when came upon the fact that everything is not what it seems even when the lights are on.

5. Narcissa Malfoy


Wife of Minister of Magic, Mother of Dracoy Malfoy, Motherly figure and will do anything for family. Creature rights activist and works along side Fenrir Greyback at Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, is Head of Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Nothing Better than a world where Woman is better at strategy tactics and espionage. She has been the woman after many successful raids which intercepted and subdued The Order of Phoenix. She loves the value of families and what it means to be wife of a Revolutionary Death Eater and Lady of an ancient house. All Hail the cunning and brilliant, Narcissa Malfoy.

6. Walden Macnair


Warden of Azkaban, Walden Macnair, is a renowned Death Eater, who keeps azkaban inmates in line, there are no more dementors in azkaban, Lucius Malfoy, The Minister of Magic, is of belief that no one deserves to suffer the misery and depression of dementors induced thoughts, “its inhumane!” Lucius Malfoy won’t wish that even on his enemies. Walden Macnair, looks after the harshest of harsh criminals of Magical Britain and it’s not always an easy feat to keep them in line.



Death Eaters, have a tattoo of Death Mark on their wrists. They are not afraid to side with the good and fight the evil, The death mark is usually casted to let the surrounding people know that death eaters have came to save them and that the common folk should gather all the necessary forces if they want to help the death eaters. Death Mark is hard to get and is only given to trusted members. It is a painful process, ones soul must be really good and positive to be able to successfully initiated.



Dark Magic? What is Dark Magic? Magic is neither good neither bad, magic is magic. It’s all about the intent, you can do harm with magic if you want to, these boundaries are set because people feel like when they categorized some spells, the evil will stop, but no whosoever is with evil intent will find a way to hurt others even with Light Magic. After all you can Petrificus Totalus some one and Wingardium Leviosa them off astronomy tower and they will pummel to death, so is really Light Magic, light? and Dark Magic, Dark? I don’t think so!



Order of The Phoenix in this Universe is a band of people who are trying to constantly question the regime and peace. They are money mind and power centred group of people, who ever since the time of Gellert Grindelwald, one time minister of magic, are rebelling under the leadership of Albus Dumbledore, who invented a cunning way to make galleons. Ootp (Order of the Phoenix) wants the ministry to invest galleons in Muggle Weaponry, their idea is to invest in it and enhance muggle weapons with magic. They don’t care about the destruction it will bring towards the mankind as long as they get their golden galleons. The sad part is in the starting of Twentieth Century they even succeeded. They believe  they are indestructible like a phoenix, hence the name Order of The Phoenix.

1. Albus Dumbledore


Mastermind behind the order of the phoenix and game changer in the history of human kind. He was the one who came up with the idea of Muggle Weaponry + Magic = Money. He even succeeded with it by helping muggles invent Atomic Bombs in early 20th Century and destroying the cities, but, the always braver Death Eaters came to rescue of mankind and that time leader  Gellert Grindelwald intercepted Albus Dumbledore in a duel and incarcerated him to the confines of underworld through the veil in ministry of magic.

Ever since then, Order of The Phoenix is trying to bring him back.

1. The Wesaleys 


The family of red heads have always been money minded as fate doesn’t really did them justice with the harsh hand when it comes to royalties. They are relented followers when it comes to rules and ministry, suffice to say they are not the finest of folks in Britain.

2. The Longbottoms


Alice and Frank Longbottom, the unspeakables,  are lost to world because of an experiment gone wrong with Muggle Weaponry and Magic. Neville Longbottom their son, doesn’t know that but he has always festered hatred towards the ministry because he thinks it was the ministry that killed them.

3. The Potters


James Potter and Lily Potter were foot soldiers of Order of The Phoenix, who got intercepted during a Ministry Raid towards Illegal Smuggling. They died and their son, unlike Neville Longbottom, Knows the truth and has been raised under the roof of Order of The Phoenix and firmly believes in their motives and has unimaginable hatred towards Ministry.

4. The Marauders


Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and James Potter. Former Member Peter Pettigrew, are group famously called Marauders. Sirius Black and James Potter have a dream to conquer the world and rule the muggles. Hence the driving force behind new generations of Order of The Phoenix. They even invented a Marauder’s Map based on the map of ministry so that they can easily infiltrate.

5. The Muggleborns


If there’s any muggleborn who is clever, it’s Hermione Granger. She is driving voice behind the group of Muggleborns who are member or wants to be members of The Order of The Phoenix. She is clever, she is wicked and she is cunning. She is an apprentice in Arthimacy and has been working rigorously to bring Albus Dumbledore back from the confines of underworld.



The Leader of Present Death Eaters is Tom Marvolo Riddle. He is charming, he is charismatic and he is intelligent. #BrainIsTheNewSexy. He is True heir of Slytherin and has always worked for the good of society. He is a Strategist and works for the improvement of Wizarding Britain. He is the Lord. He insists that all ancient wizarding customs and rituals should be followed and one should always represent themselves as Charismatic.  He was apprentice under  Gellert Grindelwald and looked upto him as father figure, hence he walked into his shoes, just for the dream of peaceful world.



Turncoat is a person who deserts one party or cause in order to join an opposing one. Severus Snape is one. He has always just looked for himself, he joined Death Eaters when he didn’t get along with Marauders and he joined Order of Phoenix when death eaters found out he was nothing but master of espionage who turncoat for the love of lily potter.


Now, Somethings don’t really change… Delores Umbridge, was a bitch in canon, she is a bitch in my AU too… Pathetic Excuse for a Human Being.
