Credence Barebones is a Maia, one of the ancient wizard-gods. He was constantly abused by his cruel stepmother, until he snapped, killing her and using his powers to go on a rampage through New York. Gellert Grindewald tried to use Credence for his own agenda, but Credence hated Gellert as much as he hated his stepmother.

After surviving a seemingly fatal spell, he reunites with Gellert, who convinces Credence to resuming working for him in exchange for Credence being reunited with his birth mother, as well as protecting Credence from the looming threat of the Nazis. Both of these promises are enough to convince Credence to abandon his former mindless rampages and fully join Gellert as Gellert's second in command.

Credence is the long-lost brother of Albus Dumbledore.
