Thiago Quintana was an American wizard.[3] He, along with Shikoba Wolfe, Johannes Jonker, and Violetta Beauvais, was one of four wandmakers who served North America in the early 20th century.[3]


Quintana's wands caused a sensation when they were first introduced.[3] Sleek and unusually long in design, they produced spells of "force and elegance". They contained a single spine taken from the back of one of the White River Monsters native to Arkansas.[3] Initially, there were fears that the species was being over-fished, but the ecological impact was lessened by the fact that only Quintana knew how to lure the creatures.[3] He fiercely guarded this secret up until his death, after which wands containing White River Monster spine cores were no longer made.[3]

  1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (film) (see this image) - He was likely of age by the time he was a recognised wandmaker in 1926.
  2. According to Pottermore, Quintana produced wands during the 1920s, which means he could not have died before 1930.
