- "Magical beasts are terrorising No-Majs. When No-Majs are afraid, they attack. Contain this or it will mean war."
- —Seraphina Picquery[src]
Madam President Seraphina Picquery (fl. 1903 - 1928) was an American witch born in Savannah, who served as the President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America between 1920 and 1928.
Seraphina was born in the city of Savannah, no later than 1903. At the age of eleven, she started her education at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. During her sorting ceremony, she was offered a place in all four Ilvermorny houses, becoming one of very few students to be so honoured. She chose Horned Serpent as her house. She was then chosen by a controversial Violetta Beauvais wand, a kind said to "take to Dark magic like a vampire to blood."
She allowed wizarding consumption of alcohol during her mandate, saying that life as a wizard of the time was hard enough without banning booze. She famously stated to her Chief of Staff that "The Gigglewater is non-negotiable".
Seraphina left office in 1928.
