The Triwizard Tournment is a regularly hosted Magi Tournament that pits the Magi schools of Europe against each other in a friendly tournament with the winner gaining access to a powerful magi item of their choosing and monetary rewards. Selected Champions compete in three tasks — traditionally judged by the Headmasters or Headmistresses of the competing schools — designed to test magical ability, intelligence, and courage. Champions competed for the honor and glory of winning the Tournament, for the Triwizard Cup, and a monetary prize.

The Tournament was renowned for being extremely dangerous: Many champions have died while competing and was discontinued at some point in or after the collapse of the Allemeni Empire, due to the high death toll.

The first Tournament was held sometime around the Downfall of Numeron as a means of bringing together the magi people of Europe as following the Downfall of Numeron Magi users were targeted in a culling that became known as the Great Magi Purge.

Rules and Customs

Each competing school is allowed one Champion to represent them during the Tournament. Students wishing to participate write their names and the school they attend on a piece of parchment and enter it into the Goblet of Fire. The Goblet was created as a Magi object that acts as an impartial judge, and selects what it considers to be the best student from each school. At the appointed time, the Goblet ejects the names, making each selected student the official Champion for their school. Each selected Champion is then bound by a magical contract to see the Tournament through to the end.

Each Tournament consists of three tasks designed to test the Champions' courage, intelligence, resourcefulness, and magical ability. These tasks are exceedingly dangerous and differ from year to year.

Champions receive marks in each of the tasks from a panel of judges, consisting of the headmasters or headmistresses of the competing schools.

Each Champion is supposed to stand alone during the Tournament, receiving no outside help from anyone, including friends and teachers. Cheating is frowned upon, though it has been known to take place several times during the history of the Tournament, and some people believe it to be a traditional part of the event.

The Yule Ball, held on Christmas Day night, is a traditional part of the Tournament. The Ball includes a feast, and a formal dance where the Champions and their partners lead the host school in dancing. Students old enough to attend are allowed to bring a friend. Students that are too young to attend may attend if invited by a student old enough to attend the ball.
