Before the Boy Who Lived, before the Golden Trio, before the Seconding Wizarding War, there was the first. There were the Marauders and their friends and the years they held dear to them before it was all ripped away. And in the background, there was a girl. One who saw it all, who was there for it all. Most who knew her are dead now, but her story still deserves to be told. This is the well known story of the generation who came before, told through the ever watchful eyes of Lyra Shafiq.
