- 1997: Potter wakes up early after spending the night in 12 Grimmauld Place with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. In Sirius Black's old room, Potter discovers that it had been ransacked by an unknown individual. Searching through the mess, Potter discovers a letter Lily Evans wrote to Black sixteen years earlier, as well as an old picture of himself at one year old. He, also, unsuccessfully tries to take an old photograph of the Marauders, but Black's Permanent Sticking Charm prevents him from doing so. Later, that day, Potter and Granger find the old room of Regulus Black and discover the identity of the mysterious R.A.B. After failing to locate the Horcrux Regulus stole, Potter calls Kreacher and questions him about the locket. After Kreacher reveals that the locket was stolen by Mundungus Fletcher, Potter orders Kreacher to find him. Just before the house-elf Disapparates, Potter gives him the false locket, to the old elf's delight.
