This woman (fl. 1991) was a witch and one of the seven registered Animagi of the twentieth century,[2] taking the form of a black cat.[1]


This witch was a regular patron of the Leaky Cauldron, and was present there when Harry Potter visited it for the first time on 31 July 1991 accompanied with Rubeus Hagrid.[1]

Magical abilites and skills

Her Animagus form, a black cat

  • Animagus: This witch was an Animagus who could transform into a black cat at will.[1] This would have meant she was highly accomplished in the field Transfiguration, since the process of becoming an Animagus was extremely difficult and arduous, requiring great skill to accomplish successfully.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • Notably, the way this witch morphs into her Animagus form differs noticeably from the other Animagi in the game (Sirius Black, Rita Skeeter, Peter Pettigrew and Minerva McGonagall). While the latter first shrink in size and then transform into their respective Animagus form, the unidentified witch transforms in a puff of blue smoke.
  • A witch sharing almost the same minifigure model can be seen in many other places throughout both LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and its sequel, most notably as the playable character titled "Witch (White)". Whether every instance of this model appearing is meant to be the same character is uncertain, though the playable character cannot be this character, as she lacks the ability to turn into an Animagus form (an ability in the game). The only difference between the two minifigures is that this witch wears a white dress, whereas the "White (White)" character wears white trousers instead.
