|~ Rakepick warning Jacob's sibling and his/her friends.|
Professor Patricia Rakepick is a main antagonist in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, a prequel that takes place seven years before the original Harry Potter story.
Patricia Rakepick was a student at Hogwarts, placed into the House of Gryffindor. She often worked together with the Marauders (James Potter, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black and Peter Pettigrew).
When she became teacher for Defence against the Dark Arts, she was more then willing to help Jacob's sibling finding the Cursed Vaults to save his/her brother, guidning him/her with different clues. One time she attempts to teach Jacob's sibling the illegal Cruciatus Curse (the Torture Curse), who refused to learn it, rasing suspicion around her.
Inside the Vault, Jacob's sibling and his/her friends are betrayed by Rakepick. They find out that Rakepick had only been using them to gain access to the Portrait Vault. Rakepick is really a member of "R", a mysterious group who is after the Cursed Vaults, in order to gain it's treasures. During this, Jacob became her apprentice, though why is still unknown.
She, Jacob and Peter Pettigrew was supposed to enter the Portrait Vault, but Peter was scared of the Hungarian Horntail Dragon that guarded the Vault and ran away, leaving Rakepick and Jacob to die. During the battle, Jacob got trapped inside a portrait and Rakepick tried to get the treasure inside the Vault, but failed. She figured out that Jacob's sibling had the same potential to perform Legilimency as his/her brother, which was required in order to enter the Vault.
When Merula tried to attack her, Rakepick cast the Cruciatus Curse on her. Jacob's sibling manged to stop her by using a potion that he/she got from Professor Snape, that made her choke and that allowed Jacob's sibling and his/her friends to disarm Rakepick. Before Disapperating away, she warned everyone that this wasn't over. She told everyone that she and "R" would find the last Cursed Vault and gain it's treasure.
In Jacob's sibling's 6th year, she attempted to murder Ben Copper, but the spell was interrupted by Rowan Khanna, who sacrificed a life for his/her friend. Rakepick mentioned that Jacob's sibling owed a friend's life to 'R', from a previous message by 'R', and disapperated from the forest.

- Rakepick's betrayal has been foreshadowed by many by the fact that the position of the Defence against the Dark Arts is jinxed, where the teacher only stays for a year and is removed by some type of accident or crime that forces them to leave. This jinx was unbeknownst placed by Lord Voldemort many years ago when Dumbledore refused to give him the job.
