"He created over five hundred spells and potions before mysteriously disappearing in 1904."
Sigmund about Rathmere.[src]

Rathmere was an ancient and powerful wizard who contributed hundreds of spells and potions to the magical world. In addition to these original magical formulas, Rathmere was known to have created at least one unique wand. He mysteriously disappeared in 1904, leaving behind only his wand, which would later be placed on display in the Magic School library.


In 2004, it was discovered that Rathmere had been captured by the Spider Demon. After suffering for a hundred years as the demon fed off him, Rathmere died when the Spider Demon absorbed the last of his power. His final words were a request to let him die in peace.



(Magic School Book text)
A wizard of unknown
age and uncertain origins.
Rathmere once possessed
vast magical powers. He is
credited with more than
500 original spells
and potions and would be a force
to rival any other if not his
mysterious disappearance in 1904
All that remains as evidence
of his existence are his wand
and his legacy of magic.
