This individual was a collector of rare magical artefacts living in London.

History[]

During the 1991–1992 school year, this collector bought a wand formerly belonging to Gellert Grindelwald from Borgin and Burkes. As Borgin and Caractacus Burke didn't obtain the wand's provenance, they sought to verify it as Grindelwald's. At the same time, a Metamorphmagus Dark wizard used the Cruciatus Curse on a number of individuals in an attempt to track down Grindelwald's wand to "reclaim Grindelwald's glory", catching the attention of the British Auror Office.[1]

Kingsley Shacklebolt and Nymphadora Tonks were assigned to stake out Knockturn Alley in the hopes of capturing the Dark wizard. With the Auror Office being short-handed, particularly due to the Dark wizard sending two Aurors to St Mungo's, Alastor Moody brought in the Rare, Obscure, and Confounding Case Division agent Jacob's sibling to help. After Jacob's sibling met with Kingsley and Tonks, the three staked out Borgin and Burkes, as they had received intel that the Dark wizard was inside. Noticing Mundungus Fletcher leaving Borgin and Burkes, Jacob's sibling convinced him to tell them that the Dark wizard had been inside the shop using the Cruciatus Curse on Borgin and demanding the location of the wand, although Borgin told him that the wand had already been sold to a collector. Mundungus claimed that the Dark wizard had left the shop, but stated that he had simply disappeared with no sign of Apparition or Floo powder.[1]

After Kingsley had interviewed Borgin regarding the situation, he, Tonks, and Jacob's sibling met up at the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, where they discussed the collector who had bought the wand. Kingsley stated that Borgin had claimed that the collector was legitimate and sought to obtain the provenance of the wand. Knowing that Borgin and Burkes hadn't bothered to obtain the wand's provenance, the three realised that the collector would likely seek out Garrick Ollivander to verify the wand as Grindelwald's. Jacob's sibling stated that, if they could get to the collector in time, they could involve the collector and Ollivander to set a trap for the Dark wizard. Kingsley and Tonks agreed, deciding to head to the collector's home due to the higher likelihood that the Dark wizard would be there. Jacob's sibling offered to visit Ollivanders to explain the situation to Ollivander before joining them at the collector's house, with Kingsley and Tonks agreeing after Kingsley was assured of what Jacob's sibling would do if confronted by the Dark wizard there.[1][2]

Although Jacob's sibling was able to capture the Dark wizard and recover the wand at Ollivanders, the collector was not able to keep the wand, which was instead sent to a secure vault.[3]
