This woman was a British witch[1] and the mother of Jacob and a second child. She did not believe that the fabled Cursed Vaults at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry truly existed, and appeared to think her oldest son to have been wrong rather than mad.

She was very strict when it came to upholding the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy and abiding by the Ministry of Magic's Decree for the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery. As a result, she forbade her children from using magic outside of school, not even allowing them to ride on broomsticks before they started at Hogwarts.

Upon reading about the events taking place at Hogwarts in Daily Prophet, she was, while very proud of her second child's contributions to breaking the curse and removing the cursed ice, not happy to learn that the Cursed Vaults was indeed real, as it only served to make her concerned that, since there apparently was more to Jacob's disappearance than what she might first have thought, her youngest might end up going missing as well. This only served to strengthen her resolve about putting restrictions on her youngest's access to potentially dangerous activities, refusing to buy them a broomstick even they were old enough to bring their own to school. Even so, she did admit to her second child that she hoped that they would find Jacob safe and sound, showing that she eventually came to, at least indirectly, approve of their search for him.


Notes and references

  1. Jacob's sibling had never been on a broom before they came to Hogwarts, because "my mom's very strict about magic outside school", a rule she wouldn't been aware of if she was not a witch herself.
