This page is heavily under construction, and in need of a great deal of fleshing out.

Many societies, fraternities, and cliques can be found throughout both Wizarding and Muggle Worlds. The Societies are very similar to Organizations of course, but for terminology reasons they have been placed here.

If your character is a member of any of these societies, add the appropriate tags to your character page, and the name will appear here under the member lists.

Please put in a +request if you are interested in starting up a new Society.

Wizarding World Societies

The Army of Truth


The Army of Truth is the name taken by the followers of Gellert Grindelwald. Their name comes from the Eye of Truth, the symbol used by Grindelwald, which supposedly represents a penetrating eye, seeing through the lies and obfuscation created by those that want a world segregated from Muggles. However, unlike the Unity Party, the Army of Truth advocates breaking down the barriers of secrecy by force, and conquering Mugglekind, placing wizards in their "rightful place" as rulers of the world.

Individual members are called "Soldiers of Truth." The Magijugend is essentially a youth extension of the Army of Truth.

To indicate that a character is a member of the Army of Truth, put the "army_of_truth" tag on that character's page.

Dark Force Defence League

The Dark Force Defence League was founded by Galatea Merrythought after her dismissal from her post as Professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts. It is a civilian organization dedicated to the opposition of the Dark Arts. While it is the duty of Aurors to do battle with Dark wizards, the D.F.D.L. emphasizes support for the Auror Office through vigilance and information gathering. They are responsible for publishing a great many texts and pamphlets about the Dark Arts and how to identify practitioners, and regularly submit reports to the Aurors on suspected Dark magic users. The reaction to them is mixed, as some view them as overzealous, but there are also a number of recognized experts on Dark Arts defence among the society.


  • Know Your Enemy: How To Identify Dark Wizards - A guide to recognising the behaviours of Dark witches and wizards.
  • A Light in the Darkness: Separating Fact from Myth about the Dark Arts - This one dispels various superstitions and outright myths about the Dark Arts.
  • Suds Versus Evil: 12 Common Charms That Could Save Your Life - A collection of common and easily-learned spells and how to used them against the Dark Arts. The title refers to first charm mentioned: the Scouring Charm, recommending for filling a Dark wizard's mouth with soap and bubbles to interfere with incantations. Note that this pamphlet does not teach the spells, it merely identifies them and discusses their use.
  • Army of Lies: Grindelwald's Great Deception - This most controversial pamphlet blatantly accuses Gellert Grindelwald of being a Dark wizard. Unsurprisingly, this text is penned by none other than the D.F.D.L. founder, Galatea Merrythought.

The Veritas Party


After the rise of Minister for Magic Leonard Spencer-Moon, public opinion of the Army of Truth turned toxic. So the more politically-minded of Grindelwald's British supporters gathered instead under the banner of a new political party, Veritas. While their aims are basically unchanged, they have set themselves apart from the previous thuggish reputation of the Army of Truth, instead using the system to spread their doctrine and affect policy.

To indicate that a character is a member of the Veritas Party, put the "veritas" tag on that character's page.

British Nobility and Gentry


The Peerage consists of nobles who have the hereditary right to sit in the House of Lords.

  • Baron & Baroness
  • Viscount & Viscountess
  • Earl & Countess
  • Marquess & Marchioness
  • Duke & Duchess


The Gentry or Landed Gentry consists of non-noble landowners, including Baronets and Knights as well Esquires and Gentlemen. They largely represent the upper classes of British society, including the non-titled cadet branches of grand noble families.

  • Baronets are often thought of as hereditary knighthoods, though their holders do not receive the accolade of a knight. It is a hereditary honour, and the oldest date from the reign of James I, who sold Baronetages to raise funds. Baronets rank below Barons, but above all knights except for the Order of the Garter and, in Scotland, the Order of the Thistle. Holders are baronetcies are styled Sir, and place Bt. or Bart. after their names, e.g. Sir John Smith, Bt., and are referred to as Sir <Firstname>. Female baronetesses are extremely rare, and are styled Dame and place Btss. after their name. The wife of a baronet is Lady <Lastname>, or <Firstname>, Lady <Lastname>.
  • Knights hold an honour that dates back to the medieval period. British knighthoods are divided into several orders, many of which are awarded only to specific classes of people. Knights are styled Sir <Firstname> or Dame <Firstname>, and their names may be followed by the postnominal letters associated with their order.
    • The Most Noble Order of the Garter is the senior and oldest order of knighthood, and mainly consists of members of the royal family and other important aristocrats and civil and military leaders. Limited to the King, Prince of Wales, and no more than 24 "companions", its postnominals are KG.
    • The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle is associated with Scotland, and consists of members of the royal family and no more than 16 important members of the Scottish nobility and gentry. Its postnominals are KT.
    • The Most Illustrious Order of Saint Patrick is associated with Ireland, and is dormant since the creation of the Irish Free State in 1922. Its postnominals are KP.
    • The Most Honourable Order of the Bath is divided into two divisions, civil and military, given to leaders in those areas, respectively senior civil servants and military officers. It has three ranks - Knight Grand Cross (KGCB), Knight Commander (KCB), and Companion (CB), though only the first two are knighthoods.
    • The Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George is primarily associated with diplomats of the Foreign Office and the Colonial Service. British Ambassadors are frequently knighted into this order prior to their assignment. It has three ranks - Knight Grand Cross (GCMG), Knight Commander (KCMG), and Companion (CMG), though only the two higher ranks come with a knighthood.
    • The Royal Victorian Order is within the personal gift of the Sovereign, and is often given to those who have done some personal service to, or have close association with, the monarchy. It has five ranks, with only the first two resulting in a knighthood - Knight/Dame Grand Cross (GCVO), Knight/Dame Commander (KCVO/DCVO), Commander (CVO), Lieutenant (LVO) and Member (MVO).
    • The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire was established in 1917, and is the most populous order of chivalry. It can be awarded for high achievement in any field, in either civil or military divisions. Only the senior two ranks - Knight Grand Cross (GBE) and Knight Commander (KCBE) - carry knighthoods. Other members use postnominals according to rank: Commander (CBE), Officer (OBE), or Member (MBE).
    • Knights Bachelor are knights who are not member of any order of chivalry, and are by far the most common kind of knighthood. They will sometimes be indicated by "Knight" or "Kt" (with a lowercase "t").
  • Esquire is a social class between knights and gentlemen, representing landowners with hereditary claim to family arms (the "country squire"). Officially, esquires include, for example, the elder sons of knights and their eldest sons, the the eldest sons of younger sons of peers, holders of offices of trust under the crown (such as Justices of the Peace), military officers over the rank of army Captain or equivalent holding the King's Commission, and barristers (but not solicitors). In more modern times, it is common to refer to any person without higher rank as "Esq." in correspondence.
  • Gentleman is a catch-all term for members of the gentry. While it once had a distinct meaning - the social class above Yeoman but below Esquire - in more modern times it tends to refer to those who have sufficient education and manners to mingle in "polite society", or at least professionals and those above common tradesmen.
