You severely underestimate my apathy.
— 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.

Etymology

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).

Quotes


Wednesday: Everyone is destined to die alone, really, it's true. You might meet someone tomorrow and fall in love, and get married. but rest assured you will die alone. It might be of eighty-five from cancer or forty-two in a car crash. Or eighty-five in a car crash while you're already dying of cancer. Unless you and your partner perish holding hands in a fiery plane crash, the odds of which are twenty-seven million to one, every single person on this big blue earth, will die, alone. And it's that singular commonality that brings us all together.

Wednesday: Being smothered in your sleep isn't the worst way to die, it's certainly in the top ten behind painkiller overdose and accidental death from autoerotic asphyxiation.

Wednesday: There are only three kinds of monsters that lurk in wardrobes. There's a spider limb dwarf, the Tsuchigumo, but they're indigenous to Japan.
Marcia: Oh.
Wednesday: And then there's the Russian Gamayun which has the body of a bird and the face of a woman.
Marcia: She sounds kind of pretty.
Wednesday: Oh she is. Her beauty is the last thing you see before her talons rip your eyes out. But the Gamayun only migrates to tropical locations so she couldn't be here. And finally, there's a Slavic undead vampire horse wolf, the Vukodlak.
Marcia: That one sounds a little scary.
Wednesday: Oh the Vukodlak is the most terrifying of them all. He runs faster than a cheetah, his teeth are sharper than a butchers knife, and he has an unquenchable thirst for blood.
Marcia: I don't want to be eaten by a Godilock!
Wednesday: You won't ever be, I promise.
Marcia: How do you know?
Wednesday: The Vukodlak only preys on the evilest humans in our society. Domestic abusers, serial killers, politicians. The dirtier the blood, the more he craves it. And you. You are completely and utterly inconsequential.
Marcia: I'm what?
Wednesday: Inconsequential. That's a big word for trivial, worthless, nothing.
Marcia: Father says I'm special.
Wednesday: Your father exaggerates. Contrary to depictions in films and books, monsters don't prey on boring children. Real monsters prey on real monsters. So as long as you never become a monster, you never have to fear monsters. Just remember, you completely and utterly do not matter.

Lucretia: I'm not looking to find Jesus, Wednesday.
Wednesday: Neither am I, he decomposed thousands of years ago.
