Background Edit

The Singing Harp is an enchanted item from the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk[1]; a posession of the giant that gets stolen by Jack.

In The Wishing Spell, the harp gets a personality and background; for the means of this wiki, she is a character ("Harper") rather than an item. She is saved from the giant by Jack and lives in his house afterwards.

Appearance and Personality Edit

"Standing behind the open window was a golden woman. She happily sang a soprano ballad as loudly as she could. A set of strings played along with her, but the twins couldn't see where there music was coming from. [...] She turned to face the twins as she sang the final note, and they noticed a set of strings connected to her back. The strings played magically along to her voice. She was a magic harp."[2]

Harper has a soprano voice and loves to sing. She tells Alex and Conner she is very grateful that Jack rescued her, because the giant would make her sing awful songs about "eating sheep and stepping on villagers". She is very chatty and clearly does not get visitors very often.[3]

In The Enchantress Returns, it is revealed that she is the former lover of the Musician and was changed into an instrument by Ezmia, who was jealous of her.[4] Her real name is Gloria.[5]

After the Enchantress visits her to gloat and to taunt her, she realizes Ezmia needs to be stopped and that the only way is to sacrifice herself and become a part of the Wand of Wonderment.[6]

She later appears as a ghost to warn the twins of coming danger.[7]
