"This Calamity is, well, quite calamitous. Everything that anyone has ever feared, revered, or held dear in the wizarding world — people, things, even memories — have been stolen and displaced, tossed about across the world. We've got to return what is lost, and quickly. The Statute of Secrecy is in danger of being broken."
—Constance Pickering[src]

Constance Pickering was a British Muggle-born witch who worked for the British Ministry of Magic, and as the leader of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force.


Constance attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in her youth, although it is unknown what house she was sorted into. At the time of her attendance, Professor Minerva McGonagall was no longer the Transfiguration teacher and was the school's official Headmistress, meaning she started attending no earlier than September 1998.[1]

In the 2010s, during the series of large-scale breaches of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy that became known as The Calamity, Constance Pickering was asked by Hermione Granger to set up the special Statute of Secrecy Task Force,[2] to track down and contain the chaotic outbreaks of magic from being noticed by Muggles.

At some point, presumably in her capacity as a member of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, she verified the casting of a Muggle-Repelling Charm over an undisclosed object or location.[3]
