Jocunda Sykes was the first witch ever to fly across the Atlantic Ocean on a broomstick, in 1935. This made her, and the broomstick she flew across the Atlantic with, the Oakshaft 79, famous throughout the wizarding world.
Behind the scenes
- Jocunda is possibly the wizard counterpart of Amelia Earhart, who is famous for flying across the Atlantic on a plane, the first woman to do so.
- In the Danish version of the second game her name is misspelt "Jocunca Sykes".
- The etymology of her first name, from the Latin for "congenial" or "delighful", is the source of the English jocund, generally suggesting a cheerful and carefree approach to life. Also, her last name is an anagramm for "skies", though the "i" has been replaced by a "y" in order to make it look more like a well-respected name.
