This individual was an unidentified, possibly Dark wizard who cast the Full Body-Bind Curse on Jacob's sibling during the 1987–1988 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

This individual also comes back during the 1988–1989 school year.


This person sent Jacob's sibling a fake invitation under the name of Silvanus Kettleburn to meet at the castle's Courtyard at a certain time at night. Upon Jacob's sibling's arrival, the person appeared, covering their face with a red cloak. They told Jacob's sibling about the forgery, claimed to be a "messenger", and promptly attacked the student with the Full Body-Bind Curse. After the victim's paralysis, the messenger said there was still time to avoid the same fate of Jacob and warned to stay away from the Forbidden Forest, the Cursed Vaults and Patricia Rakepick, saying that "death is coming to Hogwarts" and that it may come to Jacob's sibling too if they disobey. The messenger also said that, after their departure, someone would soon free Jacob's sibling from the binding curse, but it is unknown who did so.
