4. *not a chapter, just tellin ya what a blood beetle is*
Blood Beetle: A blood beetle takes the appearance of a beetle when in fact it is a large tigerish looking cat. Blood beetles can only be turned into cat form when activated by the one who owns them, when they are in your presence they will think everything you think, therefore you must be careful not to over react around them. They will take a joke seriously and will prey upon anyone you want. There is only one spell that can repel them and it is very difficult, not many people can master it. Blood beetles are endangered, there is only about one hundred left in the UK. In 1857 there was an overwhelming amount of them in Russia, they had to shut down the ministry while every wizard possible tried to get rid of them, over 1,000,000 wizards and witches died. Blood beetles were used by Death Eaters in the first war, though none of them made it through the war. Blood beetles have deep red fur with swirly black furless patches on their backs.
