" […] at the Solstice will come a new […]'"
— The Seer's prophecy[src]

This unidentified Seer was an elderly, bearded wizard who made a little known prophecy that was held in the Hall of Prophecy. His Prophecy Record was broken during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.[1]

Behind the scenes

This seer speaks of something occurring on the Solstice. Both the Winter and Summer Solstice have been recognised and celebrated in many cultures around the world. Perhaps coincidentally, the release date of the final book was announced during Winter Solstice 2006.
