The Calamity is a mysterious event that has befallen the world of Wizards Unite, causing various artefacts, creatures, people and even memories to appear in the Muggle world. The source of the Calamity is not yet known.
The Calamity causes various Foundables to appear in the Muggle world, hidden by Confoundable magic and wrecking chaos around them. Wizards Unite players have been summoned to join the Statue of Secrecy Task Force in an effort to solve the mystery and stop the Calamity.
The events in Wizards Unite are happening after the events of main Harry Potter books and they are considered to be canon. Solving Foundables further reveals the story behind The Calamity.
