Madam Villanelle was a witch who worked at Flourish and Blotts in the 1980s and early 1990s. She was noted to be a skilled linguist.[2]


Early life

Villanelle bought her first wand from Garrick Ollivander.[3]

1988–1989 school year

Madam Villanelle: "Can I help you?"
Jacob's sibling: "Yes, I'm looking for Madam Villanelle."
Madam Villanelle: "You've found her. What can I do for you, [Mr/Miss]..."
— Madam Villanelle greeting Jacob's sibling[src]

Madam Vilanelle speaking to Jacob's sibling in Flourish and Blotts

In late 1988,[4] she met Jacob's sibling, who visited the shop in order to find clues about their brother.[2]

1989–1990 school year

The following year, Jacob visited the shop and bought some books about the Mahoutokoro School of Magic. Jacob's sibling visited the shop shortly afterwards and asked Madam Villanelle about their brother's visit.[5]

At some point near the end of the 1989–1990 school year, Villanelle told Jacob's sibling and Mundungus Fletcher information of a Dark Witch who had been gathering information about Jacob's sibling and their wand (who turned out to be the Dark Witch in Knockturn Alley).[6]

1990–1991 school year

During the 1990–1991 school year, Villanelle used Xeep's Luscious Locks Solution and lost some memories due to the memory-erasing properties of it. Jacob's sibling and Ben Copper paid her a visit during their investigation of Garrick Ollivander's misfiring wand.[3] Villanelle was later given the counter-serum, which stopped the effects of the potion on her memory.[7]

  1. She was already working at Flourish and Blotts before Jacob went missing.

  4. In Year 6 Chapter 6, Villanelle says that her first meeting with Jacob's sibling was "at the end of last year" and as their meeting happened in Chapter 10 out of a total of 34 chapters in Year 5, it is unlikely she was referring to the school year. Additionally, in the previous chapter, Rubeus Hagrid mentions his birthday being soon, and his birthday is in December, the last month of the year. As such, "last year" presumably refers to the year 1988.
