Burdened by his father's aura, Albus has difficulties understanding what he expects from him; Scorpius suffers from the premature death of his mother and from a rumor that he is in fact Voldemort's son. In his fourth year at Hogwarts, he and Scorpius meet Amos Diggory's niece Delphi, a young adult. Learning that a Time-Turner has been found (the Ministry of Magic having previously destroyed all Time-Turners to prevent nostalgic Death Eaters from changing history)but that Harry would not use it to save Cedric's life, the trio steals the time-traveling device from Hermione's (current Minister of Magic) office and travel twenty-four years back to the Triwizard Tournament to prevent Cedric from winning the first task.
