A/N: Written for the [info]snarry_games Winter 2007 Games, Team Wartime. The influence of style from Samuel Shellabarger, particularly his Captain From Castile, will be obvious to those who know that text. Many thanks to betas [info]fabularasa, [info]cluegirl, [info]sobriquet_99, and [info]nimori, who had so many different drafts of this pressed on them, they musta thought they were dealing with Oliver Stone.
Disclaimer: I do not own the elements of the Harry Potter universe. Some elements of this story are based on historical figures and fact; literary liberty has been taken in places.

Summary: In 1492, Spain launched something far more shameful than just one misdirected Genoan and his three ships. And only those of limpieza de sangre--pure blood--were safe. And in truth, not even them.
