When the three adults apparated into Godric's Hollow the found the cottage in ruins. They rushed inside in hopes of finding their family. They heard a baby crying, they ran into the nursery. Only to find a crying Mason,a confused Camilla and Harry, and a dead Penelope on the floor. “My babies!” said Lily when she picked up Mason as James picked up Harry. Sirius cried when he saw Penelope's cold body. Her hair had spread out and her eyes were closed peacefully. He sank to the floor, cradling her head in his arms, tears running down his face. "Penelope ." James rubbed his back, tears welling up in his eyes as well as Lily's.
"She knew what she was doing, Padfoot. She - she died a brave woman who was protecting her family," James said. Dumbledore strode in, his face grave and sorrowful. "Sirius. Lily. James. I see the children survived. Penelope will be remembered and honored," he started.

"Sybill Trelawney gave me a prophecy concerning Mason, Harry and Camilla. May I examine the children?" he said, holding out his arms. Their eyes widened, but they handed over the three babies without hesitation. Dumbledore failed to see the small,star-shaped scar on the nape of Camilla's neck. Instead, he immediately spotted the lightning-bolt scar on Mason's forehead. What he didn't know was that when Voldemort was "killed", a piece of glass had cut Mason's head, creating the scar.

“Mason is destined to vanquish the Dark Lord Voldemort," Dumbledore proclaimed.

"Whatever do you mean, Headmaster?" Lily asked curiously, looking at her son.

“Mason  defeated Voldemort today, but Voldemort is surely not dead. He will return, and when he does, Mason will ultimately kill him. He is the Boy-Who-Lived. I must congratulate you on this, James, Lily," Dumbledore explained. Mason's parents and Sirius gazed at Mason in admiration and pride, Camilla and Harry forgotten.

"Our little boy," Lily cooed, hugging Mason.

"Prongs Junior to defeat Voldemort! Penelope's death did not go in vain. I'm sure she would've been proud of Mason," Sirius said in a mix of happiness and sorrow.

And so Mason was declared the Boy-Who-Lived, becoming Sirius' Lily' and James' pride and joy. Camilla and Harry were forgotten and neglected. Thus starts the story of Camilla Black.
