The Head Curse-Breaker is a high-ranking position at Gringotts Wizarding Bank,[1] denoting the witch or wizard of the highest degree of seniority over the other Curse-Breakers, who presumably is involved in the employment and supervision of the other Curse-Breakers and oversees the operations carried out by other Curse-Breakers. Not merely an administrative position, however, the Head Curse-Breaker also appears to do some curse-breaking of their own.[2]


As of 1987, the position was held by Patricia Rakepick.[1] It is unknown who became the Head Curse-Breaker after Patricia Rakpick became the Defence Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
