"R" was a group[1] involved in the search for the Cursed Vaults. They wrote letters directed to Jacob's sibling and Patricia Rakepick while the former was attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Biography

This group began writing suspicious letters signed as "R" to denizens of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the mid-1980s. Those letters were very commanding, with imposed instructions and threats of punishment in case the recipients did not follow the instructions. They first wrote to Jacob's sibling in the 1985–1986 school year. Two school years later, they wrote to both Jacob's sibling and Patricia Rakepick, telling Rakepick to step aside from Hogwarts. That same year, a mysterious cloaked figure told Jacob's sibling to avoid the Cursed Vaults, Patricia Rakepick and the Forbidden Forest. It is possible that the messenger was sent by R or were R themselves. R sent a Dementor to Hogwarts to test Jacob's sibling.

Patricia Rakepick was a member of R, but only had a minor part.[1]

Alastor Moody knew about the group. In 1989, he told Jacob's sibling about it and made them swear not to tell anyone else.[1]
