The numbers of Scourers multiplied across America in the late seventeenth century and there is evidence that they were not above passing off innocent No-Majs as wizards, to collect rewards from gullible non-magic members of the community.The famous Salem Witch Trials of 1692-93 were a tragedy for the wizarding community.The most glaring difference between magic practised by Native Americans and the wizards of Europe was the absence of a wand. Wands channel magic so as to make its effects both more precise and more powerful, although it is generally held to be a mark of the very greatest witches and wizards that they have also been able to produce wandless magic of a very high quality.
As time went on, the Scourers became increasingly corrupt.Wizarding historians agree that among the so-called Puritan judges were at least two known Scourers, who were paying off feuds that had developed while in America.A number of the dead were indeed witches, though utterly innocent of the crimes for which they had been arrested.Far away from the jurisdiction of their native magical governments, many indulged a love of authority and cruelty unjustified by their mission.
Such Scourers enjoyed bloodshed and torture, and even went so far as trafficking their fellow wizards.
Some were driven by a sense of adventure, but most were running away: sometimes from persecution by No-Majs, sometimes from a fellow witch or wizard, but also from the wizarding authorities.
