Mr Goldstein was an American wizard who lived in the early 20th century.[1] He was the father of Porpentina and Queenie Goldstein.[1]

He and his wife died of dragon pox when their daughters were young.[1] This left the girls to "raise each other," which lead them to forge a life-long bond.[1][4][5]

After being sentenced to death in 1926, Tina Goldstein had her happy memories extracted from her head by Bernadette, who then cast them into the execution potion in the Death Cell.[6] To keep Tina sedated, the potion replayed the memories for her, which included "happy images" of her mother and father.[6][7]
