- Harry Potter: "Excuse me, how much is this potion vial?"
- Mr Mulpepper: "It costs eight Sickles."
- Harry Potter: "I'd like to buy that please."
- Mr Mulpepper: "Thank you. You're very welcome to fill your Potion Vial with Wiggenweld stamina potion. The Wiggenweld's in the large cauldron over there."
- — Mr Mulpepper making a sale[src]
Mr Mulpepper was a wizard and potioneer who owned and ran Mr Mulpepper's Apothecary. In 1992, he sold Harry Potter a potion vial for eight Sickles. He also sold Harry and Ginny Weasley two potion kits for the price of five sickles each.
Behind the scenes
- 'Mulpepper' seems to be a reference to Nicholas Culpeper, an English botanist and pharmacologist who was accused of witchcraft after angering his fellow physicians by condemning their greed and their use of harmful practises such as toxic remedies and bloodletting. A revolutionary, Culpeper was able to provide his services for free. This, and a willingness to examine patients in person rather than simply examining their urine created an affray between him and the Society of Apothecaries, who were similarly incensed by the fact that he suggested cheap herbal remedies as opposed to their expensive concoctions.
