*Arcturus Apparates back here, snatches the three slim volumes Mater contributed, and pops back to the cellars, and thence on to the Lab underground.*

*Arcturus has noticed that although, he himself, the gardener, and even the house elves (when they are infrequently mentioned) all get full names in his father's diary entries, Mater is only ever "F.". She is by far the most commonly referenced source, but never named in full.*

*He has reined in his sarcasm for a full three minutes, and it's chomping at the bit.* "What my plus-sized friend is trying to indicate is that this place was essentially constructed with magic for magic. So, if we realign and reword some of the specific charms and permanent wards build into the fabric then, as he indicated, those with magic in the blood will be almost entirely safe, even Squibs. Muggles, however ... well, quite frankly, I've never really thought about them in this context."

"What are you bli- .. Oooh. *The cartoon lightbulb is practically visible.* Yes, I suppose. Just a sec. *He walks in a straight line through Draco and the wall behind him, returning moments later.* "Here we go. *At Iz's placid expression of puzzlement.* Don't you remember? I told you, oh, only about eight times. When Mater insisted we take in Paris and Père Lachaise, I bribed one of the House Elves to 'whisk away' a small sample of bone material from the real tomb of Antoine Charles Horace Vernet, for comparison with the Conan Doyle 'essence' great-grandfather had left in the lab. I was working to see if the two bore any identical markers, and if the talent ascribed to Sherlock Holmes, as Doyle's proxy, could be put down to misplaced magic rather than a truly Muggle gift for logic. *Iz's interest is not discernibly piqued, nor his memory stirred.* Anyway, *turning back to Gaia* what my occasionally undisappointing offspring has stumbled on is that we could use *He reveals a small test tube laying in his left palm* this to, as it were, screen for magic compatibility. It's a harmless potion, but causes, when imbibed, a temporary blotching on the face on those without any thaumic genetic markers in their make-up. It would tell us who might be at risk if they came here."

*Visibly flustered by being smiled at by an attractive young woman.* "Well, it's - that is to say ... What was the - oh, right. *hm-hm* The genetic marker. It's basically an inversion, arguably a perversion, of everything this family has worked for for a dozen generations and more, which is a huge selling point in and of itself. We *he wafts a hand in Draco's direction* come from a line for whom wizarding pure-blood supremacy is not a concept but the cornerstone of reality. Anything else can, and indeed should, be dismissed. Looking for ways to make this 'reality' more widespread, our ancestors have, in fact, amassed what I believe to be an unrivalled library and body of research into the exact nature of magic use in humans, and how it may be transmitted or, from their standpoint, stolen. They have in pursuit of their ideals even contaminated themselves by contact with Muggle processes, such as science, in order to understand the phenomenon from as many angles as possible. The upshot is, using a mixture of potioneering and biology, my grandfather isolated a DNA sequence which, he believed, exists in all humans capable of any degree of magic wielding, or even with the latent potential for such. When I was looking into the "Art in the blood" question I found a way to use his research to concoct the potion in here. *He gives the test tube a little shake.* Does that clear things up?"

*With a careful monotone.* "What Father is modestly failing to mention is that he, as an adult, was 85% of the way to breeding a Chizpurfle which would have drained all magic from Muggle-Born or Half-Blood wand users, albeit on the back of his Grandpa's research."

How many times ...? *He takes three deep, deliberate breaths, then addresses himself to their guest.* "I'm sorry, there are, as I'm sure you can tell, some lingering - issues to our dynamic, and since I have a Swiss cheese memory when it comes to the life of Arcturus Rookou after age sixteen, I tend to overreact when blindsided by ... unwelcome revelations. As Draco says, it appears Arcturus continued the family theme and came distressingly close to success. Now, however, we can hopefully put all their endeavours to far more positive use."
