From the Story

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Discovered in chapter 6, The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black

Orion placed every security measure known to wizardkind on number twelve, Grimmauld Place when he lived there, so that Muggles could never come and call.

Sirius reveals that although Orion and his wife supported Voldemort's ideals of purification of the wizarding race, getting rid of Muggle-borns and placing pure-bloods in charge, they got cold feet when they saw what the Dark Lord was prepared to do to gain power. Despite this, Sirius believes Walburga and Orion would have been proud of their son Regulus for becoming a Death Eater.
