"…it isn't a rune and it's not in the syllabary either."
- Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


The Battle of Hogwarts was the ultimate fight between light and dark during the Second Wizarding War. On the early morning hours of the 2nd of May 1998, many relevant events that contributed to the downfall of the darkest wizard of the time took place. Years later, these events would surely be gracing the pages of history books and told as stories to younger generations. However, like many books published and stories passed on, a few important information got lost in translations. Surely you are knowledgeable enough of the true happenings that fateful day to correct these inconsistencies.

There are two parts to this month's task: decode AND translate the rebus puzzles given below. Each puzzle describes a certain event during the Battle of Hogwarts. After solving the rebus puzzle, you must then translate your initial solution, replacing a few words or phrases for the proper names they correspond to in the Harry Potter universe.

Example:

Solution to Rebus: pink cat lady wears evil green necklace at the Ministry
Translation: Dolores Umbridge wears Slytherin's locket at the Ministry

Task:
Decode and translate the following: Click individual images to enlarge

Rebus No. 1


Rebus No. 2


Rebus No. 3


Rebus No. 4


Rebus No. 5

Do we need the actual rebus image in the submission, or just what it says and the translation?

@RicFule It's up to you if you want to include the actual image or not. As long as the rebus no. is indicated and your solution and translation corresponds correctly, it should be fine.

I have a feeling that in rebus 5 the third word should not have the 's' removed. Could you please check once?

What does the symbol under the last word in rebus 5 (and the third word in rebus 6) mean? I tried googling it but that hasn't helped

Unfortunately, you have to decipher the images by yourself. We cannot provide a clue or answer. I'm sure it will come to you in no time

No need to elaborate the events. As long as the words and phrases were replaced with their proper names from canon as needed (see example), it should be good.
