* What is with the pipe Victorique is always smoking? It doesn't make sense that she actually puts weed in it. Wouldn't it be illegal back then and how come there's never any smoke coming out of it? The only alternative I can think of is that she puts flowers in it and just tastes the aroma.

**She could just be fidgeting, and is chewing on the pipe to relieve her boredom.


* Victorique is definitely a MacGuffinSuperPerson. Her father knows that and keeps her confined as his trump card. But not only does he know that. Victorique is very much aware of this as well and the Ministry of Magic very likely has some knowledge as well. So 1) why doesn't the Ministry of Magic to secure their position just abduct her? 2) why does Victorique unconditionally do every of her fathers' biddings? She could blackmail him for all he's got...

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

** She wanted to kill him with her own hands, is all.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:
