    I mean Dumbledore doesn't even need one of these things.. why go to the trouble of making something that can slowly turn out lights??

      I think it does more than that honestly. Maybe it’s a way to teleport to people they are thinking about. You can apparate if you know where but not who. Maybe the deluminator does that.

    He had the obscurus to study it that way he could save children that were hiding their magic and creating a way to extract the obscurus without them dying

    Dumbledore doesn't keep it with him all the time. He lent it to Mad Eye Modey in Order of the Phoenix.

    Spoiler alert for fantastic beasts crimes of Grindelwald,

    Credence is actually a Dumbeldor, and sense he has to die in this series, I would not be surprised if Dumbeldor preserves the last surviving bit of Credence's obsqurial ( sorry for the spelling) in his deluminator.

    The deluminator is one of the most brilliant items in harry potter and not too convenient at all, it is very sweet to me

    If the deluminater is in crimes of Grindelwald it could complete the hallows
    Deluminator can hide people like the cloak

  • Tera Edwards
    Tera Edwards 25 days ago

    My theory has always been the following, since it also answers the question as to why Dumbledore is always in the right place at the right time:
    I believe that the current owner of the deluminator gains the ability to hear when ANYONE speak his name in the briefest of context. Notice, if you re-read the series, every time Dumbledore's name has been spoken urgently, he either appears or gives aid almost immediately. The one example I can bear right now is in the Chamber of Secrets. There's absolutely no way for Dumbledore to have known Harry needed help. He says Dumbledore's name and Dumbledore sends Faux to him almost immediately. Dumbledore himself can't have apparated because you can't in Hogwarts so he sends the next best thing. The obscural is an interesting theory, but I'm not sure. Right now, I think Dumbledore keeps it with him to serve as a beacon signal when those need him most.
    I will also add that perhaps you're right in saying that it is only those that the owner treasures most that can be heard, because with my theory, I've always wondered why Ron didn't hear his family talking about him.

    So does that mean the delimitator is how Dumbledore knew Harry was standing up against Voldemort in the chamber of secrets? That’s why Dumbledore knew to send Fox to the rescue, because Harry says his name while confronting Voldemort then heard their conversation.

  • Rebequitalindaybella

    Rewatching this after Crimes of Grindenwald makes me think about the theory of the dark twin you have... What if Dumbledore had in fact preserved Ariadnas obscurus and tried to resurrect her? But Credence was the result? In that way Credence can be really Dumbledores brother.

    My favorite moment ever from Harry is when Ron says “He knew I would leave” and Harry says “No he knew you would want to come back”

    That was a very Dumbledore-esk moment. It was also a sweet moment

  • Leia Amos
    Leia Amos Month ago

    Madeye may have wanted the deluminator because it magically takes out lights, but may not set off any Taboo, remember, in the 5th book they also bring up magic being used in the area Harry was in even if they couldn't confirm or deny it was Harry at his trial. It may have been the best way to set that in motion without setting off the alarm further.

    Omg just watched this and What if that's how they defeat credence is that they trap him the deluminator and that's how it was made because credence might be Dumbledores "dark twin" (obscurel)

  • Rafi Goldstein
    Rafi Goldstein 2 months ago

    But an abscurial is a very dark form of magic so I think credence going past the light and turning them off might just be dark energy, energy so dark that it takes over other energies such as electricity.

    They dont leave the stone ANYWHERE, they leave it in the Forbidden Forest, a place where _obviously_ no one could ever go, because it is forbidden. Pretty smart. Certainly better than a Gringotts vault or a locket in a potion in a basin in a pond in a cave on the edge of a cliff in the middle of the ocean, or a lake in a not-forbidden forest

    And, Silly Carlin Brother! Dumbledore did NOT go to Privet Drive to visit 4 Privet Drive or any one else living in that neighbourhood IN PERSON! He only shows up there to PRE-pare for Hagrid escorting Baby Harry to arrive ... any time and to leave Baby Harry at 4 Privet Drive with ONLY A NOTE. THAT, is why he puts out Lights, so that no Muggle would see a bunch of people Obviously from wizarding world.

    Sure, then, ... for all we know ... to Top all he's preparation, Hagrid has to come with that LOUD Magical "Harley-Davidson" from Sirius Black to ruin the Quiet evening a bit! LOL

    His reason for turning out the lights on his arrival is pretty easy to figure out if you just think about it. I don’t even think that he put the lights out for himself. It was him thinking ahead. He knew that shortly after his arrival, Hagrid would be showing up with Harry on a flying Triumph motorcycle, complete with side-car. That’s why he removed the lights from the entire street.

    I think it is more likely with recent trailers that Dumbledore created the Deluminator for multiple uses. The greatest to take him to the person he longed for the most. In the newest trailers we learn when seeing him looking into the morror that it was not his dead family, but Grindelwald. If Grindelwald’s eye is Moody’s and he created it to find at least one Deathly Hallow (the cloak), then there could be untold powers of the Deluminator that also shows Dumbledore these things. But I do rather like the idea of it being his way to find Grindelwald. I would like to note that as it was said Dumbledore probably didn’t KNOW Ron would leave Harry, but that he would always want to return. As in if an event happened that separated them from one another he knew Ron would always try to find Harry. Harry even tries to leave early, but Ron stops him. This being an example of them being separated and Ron always wanting to find and aid Harry. Also, Credence is not the only other place when the lights are doused. They turn the lights off all the time in ways more close to how the Deluminator works. Credence does so in a manor seen that displays his out of control power and rage. Much like when Harry makes the glass shatter in Aunt Marge’s hand. The lights in Fantastic Beast were not so much doused out as they were shattered from out of control anger.

    So guys listen to this okay? We know that witches and wizards are most probably incapable of turning off only electric lights by magic, because we see Dumbledore put fires out and because we know Moody , who is a skilled wizard, needed the Deluminator. And what do we know of electricity in the wizarding world?? It doesn't work near Hogwarts. Hermione clearly says that electric devices do not work near the school because there is too much magic in the air. And what is an Obsurial? A person who has repressed their magic. And I'm guessing that this is a lot of magic based off of Credence. So this is another fact that can support this theory. This could be the 'how' of the Deluminator's working.

    He had to apparate somewhere he knew he wouldn't be seen. You can't just apparate anywhere you please in a Muggle neighborhood.
    And you can easily turn off street lights with magic: hit the lamps with the reductor curse. No more lights.

    I think that JK likes to put in tiny details like that in all of her books and movies. Like how time turners came back in Cursed Child, but that was important to the plot line. So I think that it will be mentioned in one of the movies, yeah
