"I'm Gethsemane Prickle, Herbologist and Potioneer. Pay attention and you'll do fine."
—Gethsemane Prickle[src]

Gethsemane Prickle was a witch, who lived to be at least 61-years-old[1], who specialised in Herbology and Potions and assisted the Ministry of Magic's Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures in solving cases related to magical beasts.[2]

She helped Mathilda Grimblehawk and her partner identify some white hairs found in a graveyard in Yorkshire as belonging to a magical beast.[1]
