'And look, Broderick, you've been sent a pot plant and a lovely calendar with a different fancy Hippogriff for each month; they'll brighten things up, won't they?'
-- Miriam Strout to her patient just before the plant strangled him (OP23)
Healer in charge of the Janus Thickey ward (a closed, longterm ward for patients with permanent spell damage) at St. Mungo’s Hospital at the time of Broderick Bode’s assassination (OP23, 25). She is quite chatty and is described as being “motherly-looking.” She treats Lockhart (a resident in the same ward) affectionately, but as a child. Other charges in her care are Agnes, a woman who’s entire head is covered with fur (she also barks), and Alice and Frank Longbottom.
