Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks was an American witch and a Charms professor at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the late 1920s.[2]


In 1927, Nicolas Flamel had a conversation with Eulalie Hicks via his magical book. She urged him to help Newton Scamander and told Flamel that "they all believed in him".[3]


  • "Eulalie" is the French form of "Eulalia", which is derived from Greek ευλαλος (eulalos) meaning "sweetly-speaking", itself from ευ (eu) "good" and λαλεω (laleo) "to talk".
  • The surname "Hicks" is an English patronymic derived from "Hick", which is from the medieval personal name "Hicke", a pet form of "Richard" (meaning "powerful ruler"). "Hicks" is a widespread surname in England, and is common in the southwest and southern Wales.
