"I may be known for my voice, but my beauty is unparelleled."
— Zenith Xeep regarding her talent and beauty[src]

Madam Zenith Xeep was a Dark Witch[4] and renowned opera diva in the wizarding world.[2]

Biography

Zenith Xeep was born, probably at some point before 1909,[1] to famous opera singers Lydian and Octavia Xeep.[2]

In her adulthood, Madam Xeep enjoyed a long and renowned career of her own as an operatic soprano. Among her repertoire were roles like the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute, a personal favourite of Garrick Ollivander.[2] Her career was covered in the press substantially by Daily Prophet reporter Rita Skeeter, who she befriended.[2]

In the 1990s, she stole a wand from Ollivanders and put a fake wand in its place.[3] She invented Xeep's Luscious Locks Solution, and was the founder of a cosmetics company called Xeep, named after herself. She held a Meet-and-Greet for her company in the Leaky Cauldron, where she first met Ben Copper and Jacob's sibling.[2] The solution caused memory loss to several of its users, including Garrick Ollivander and Madam Villanelle, and was later identified to be a potent memory-erasing potion.[5]

Zenith confronted by Jacob's sibling in Knockturn Alley

When the British Ministry of Magic initiated an investigation, Xeep went hiding in Knockturn Alley. She was caught having a meeting with a Dark Witch from R by Ben and Jacob's sibling, and when she was about to hand over the wand she had stolen, Ben Copper emerged, and was soon Stunned by the Dark Witch. When Jacob's sibling also appeared and the Dark Witch Disapparated, Jacob's sibling duelled Xeep, and after they won, she drank a bottle of Xeep's Luscious Locks Solution, making herself forget what had happened, along with, however, her name.[3]

Zenith Xeep hospitalised in the Janus Thickey Ward

After this, Xeep was hospitalised in the Janus Thickey Ward in St Mungo's as she had lost her memory, and was cared for by Healer Miriam Strout, who treated her with a restorative potion. When on work experience at the hospital, Jacob's sibling was surprised to realise that Strout had assigned them to care for her, as they had apprehended her. They told Strout about Xeep's criminal behaviour and Strout acknowledged how Healers had to treat everyone, even if they were Dark Witches. Later, when Jacob's sibling began their treatment of her, Xeep did not remember them prior to her hospitalisation, and only remembered their face from being in the ward. Xeep, after consuming some of the restorative potion, told them she briefly remembered meeting R at one of her shows, but then her memory lapsed again, and she fell asleep.[4]

Jacob's sibling performing Legilimency on Zenith Xeep

Later on, with Chiara Lobosca, Jacob's sibling decided to read Zenith Xeep's mind using Legilimency, in order to see who was responsible for the curses that had wrecked havoc at St Mungo's. Using the Legilimency Spell, she was able to navigate her thoughts and find her thinking of a Dark Wizard named Burke, who they were unsure of. They used this information to find out that Burke was a Healer employed at the hospital who was a secret agent working for R.[6]

Magical abilities and skills

Dark Witch: "...And this potion of yours with the ridiculous name... did it work?"
Zenith Xeep: "It's called Xeep's Luscious Locks Solution... and it worked exactly as intended, Madam."
— Zenith Xeep to the Dark Witch from Knockturn Alley[src]

Behind the scenes

  • Garrick Ollivander, who was at least in his early eighties in 1990, claimed to have been a fan of Madam Xeep since he was a lad, suggesting that she was far older than she looked in 1990–1991. She might have accomplished this with a de-ageing amulet. However, he may have meant lad as in the sense of a young adult lessening this somewhat.
  • Quite appropriately, the role of The Queen of the Night is the villain of The Magic Flute, a powerful Sorceress and Queen who wants to steal the powerful artefact known as the Circle of the Sun. The role is a demanding one, infamous for the difficulty of the Queen's second aria, "Der Hölle Rache", suggesting that Zenith Xeep was an extremely skilled singer.[citation needed]

Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Year 7, Chapter 12 (And Hello Magical Accidents and Catastrophes), Garrick Ollivander implies Zenith Xeep is older or around the same age he is, saying that "I've been following her career since I was a lad". Since Ollivander was already working and therefore of age (17) in 1926 (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (see this image)), he was born no later than 1909.
