Magenta Comstock (18951991) was a witch and experimental artist, whose portraits' eyes not only followed the viewer around the room, but also followed them home.[1]


Early life

Magenta Comstock was born in 1895 to parents of unknown blood status.[1]

She became an artist and began experimenting with her artwork. Her portraits were known for their staring eyes which would often follow viewers home.[1]

She was on a Chocolate Frog Card by 1988.[2]

At some time before or during the 1988–1989 school year, a book entitled Collected Artwork by Magenta Comstock was published and founded the Young Witch and Wizard Artist Awards.[3]


Comstock died in 1991 at the age of 96.[1]

  2. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery - One of the questions in Badeea Ali's art quiz is about who is on a Chocolate Frog Card and Magenta Comstock is one of the correct answers. Badeea Ali is unlocked as friend in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Year 5, Chapter 4 (Opposite Day), taking place in the 1988–1989 school year. Later, in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Year 5, Chapter 9 (Dangerous Friends), Rubeus Hagrid states that his birthday is soon. As Hagrid was born on 6 December, this means all chapters in Year 5 up to Chapter 9 must take place at some point between 1 September 1988 and 6 December in the same year.
