I'm new here and don't want to break any rules.
Ya I don't really see why not. It doesn't really give away that much by saying who you think it is. Because of course, most people who haven't read that far into it, wouldn't even know who "R.A.B" is and wouldn't know the importance of it yet. I was sending out PM's to people of who I thought R.A.B. was, but I don't see the problem of discussing it in this thread.
I have a feeling that the R.A.B. stands for Regulus Black, Sirius's brother. I'm not exactly sure what the "A" stands for, but I kind of remember a scene in one of the books where Siruis was talking about one of his uncles whose name started with an "A." That could be Regulus's middle name.
Also, because of him stealing the *, that is why Voldemort killed Regulus Black. I do remember Sirius saying in one of the previous books that Regulus tried to back out of Death Eaters group and that was why he was killed. Who else would refer to Voldemort as the Dark Lord other than a fellow death eater? He would just call him "He who must not be named" or whatever.
Of course this is only a theory and it could be entirely wrong, and it could be somebody else. I guess I'll have to read the first 5 to find more details about the Black family.
Of course, this means that if this is true, Regulus is dead, and this R.A.B. couldn't help Harry as a partner in finding the rest of the *.
