    J. Alfred Darrow vs. Violetta Lestrange

    “Mr. Darrow to start,” Astrid instructed, the rules having been seen to.

    Alfred had no desire to be here, and even less desire to progress through to the next round and have to do this again. He wished he hadn't let anyone talk him into this. He barely even remembered a handful of offensive spells from his time at Hogwarts, and wasn't at all sure he'd be able to get a shield charm up properly. Hopefully he left here with all his fingers and toes - though the girl across from him hardly looked intimidating, one never could tell.

    "Reducio," he cast, hoping for the best. Theoretically, if she shrunk down to the size of a bowtruckle, she couldn't possibly do too much damage.

    Perhaps it was out of the norm for a genteel woman to be dueling against a man, but Violetta thought it the perfect time to assert that she was the better - er - user of magic.

    She didn't recognize the man at all, but there was something about him that made her uneasy; perhaps it was the lack of confidence in his voice when he cast his shrinking spell at her.

    No matter.

    Violetta raised her wand and quickly cast a shield charm.

    The shield held. Astrid easily declared Miss Lestrange the winner, and bid her to continue with the next round.

    Smiling triumphantly, Violetta wasted no time before raising her wand and casting "Expelliarmus!"

    It could have been worse; expelliarmus was, at least, a spell he recognized and was reasonably confident he could mount a counter to. He attempted to do so.
