— The street peddler attempts to sell Molly Weasley a supposed protective amulet.[src]

This individual was a wizard who sold Amulets in 1996 in Diagon Alley. He tried to sell one to Molly Weasley to give to Ginny Weasley, however Arthur Weasley threatened him with arrest.[1] He was one of many preying, in various ways, on the renewed fear which the wizarding populace felt due to the recently acknowledged return of Voldemort and his followers.
