“[Queenie] has the ability to read minds and she can read people. It’s a magic within her. It’s not just reading somebody’s thoughts, she can read into someone’s story; she can see people’s goals. She can literally see everything you don’t want to be seen, right down to your core. She’s basically a complete and utter magical empath so even though she’s able to do magic with her wand, a lot of her magic is internal, which makes her a different type of wizard or witch.”
