Humphrey Balsamo was a shop assistant working at Slug & Jiggers, a potion shop on Diagon Alley.[1]

At the time of Balsamo's employment at Slug & Jiggers, the apothecary was broken into and wrecked by what seemed to be a magical beast, thus prompting investigation by Mathilda Grimblehawk and her partner from the Ministry of Magic's Beast Division.


  • In Latin, "balsamo" is a declension of the noun "balsamum", meaning balsam or balm, a sweet-smelling oil or soothing ointment derived from plants; it's a rather fitting surname for someone who works in an apothecary.
