João Coelho was a South American wizard who, as of 2016, was the Captain of the Tarapoto Tree-Skimmers, a world-renowned Quidditch team from Peru. He received his magical education at Castelobruxo in Brazil.[1]


  • "João" (pronounced [ʒwɐ̃u̯]) is the Portuguese form of the name John. "Coelho" (pronounced [kwˈe.ʎu]) is a Brazilian and Portuguese surname, and it translates as "rabbit".

Behind the scenes

  • While his name is of Portuguese origin and Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking country in South America, he captained a Peruvian Quidditch team. His attendance of Castelobruxo gives no indication of his nationality, as the school accepts students from all over South America.
