— Wednesday to Musidora
Doctor Wednesday Morticia Peltier-Thorn (b. 31 October) is a half-blood witch, animagus and the daughter of Maisie Thorn and James Peltier. Wednesday proved her significance as a human member of the House of Thorn, being not only Animagi, but an exceptionally talented witch, legilimens and the mother of the fourth Siren within the family, Marcia. She went on to become a parapsychologist and married her schoolmate, Joel Glicker.
Like her older siblings, Wednesday also attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was sorted undoubtedly into the Slytherin house. She quickly became infamous for her cryptic wisdom, sharp wit, and undeniable logic. Although Wednesday was essentially part of a social group, she would often be found satisfied with her own company, or in the company of Musidora Cauldwell.
Wednesday excelled as an adult in the muggle world. Wednesday achieved a degree in Psychology and went on to further specialise in Parapsychology, the study of ostensibly paranormal phenomena. Being a naturally talented witch, Wednesday has excelled in her career pathway and is known for her success across Great Britain and later France. As a witch, Wednesday is undoubtedly one of the most gifted across the Thorn family. Becoming an Animagus at the age of fourteen and in addition, learning the art of legilimency, only proves her undeniable high magical aptitude and talent.

The name Wednesday derives from two mighty but distinct gods. The Old English word for the name indicates that the day was named after the Germanic god Woden. In Romance languages, the name is derived from the Roman god Mercury. (For example, Wednesday in French is mecredi and miercuri in Romanian).
Wednesday's middle name, Morticia, derives from the Latin word morticia, meaning funeral director; undertaker.
Wednesday's first surname in her double-barreled surname is Peltier, that dates back to the Middle Ages. It was a Norman name given to a furrier. Looking back even further, it's found the name was originally derived from the Old French word pellet, meaning animal skin, and was used to indicate a person in the trade of removing and selling the skins of animals. The second surname in her double barreled surname is Thorn, that derives from an English and Danish background. It is a topographic name for someone who lived by a thorn bush or hedge (Old English, Old Norse þorn).
- Wednesday's theme song is Paint It, Black by The Rolling Stones.
