Victoria Gradley was one of missing Third-year Brakebills students that disappeared during their journey to Fillory. Captured by The Beast, she was used as bait for Travelers.


Early Life

Victoria was invited to participate in Brakebills' Entrance Exam due to her possessing an aptitude for magic. After passing, she was sorted into the Psychic discipline.


In her third year attending the school, before their disappearance, Victoria and her friends discovered the existence of Fillory, likely due to her gift as a Traveler. Along with Josh Hoberman, Victoria and her friends traveled to the magical world, intending to spend their Spring Break there, but was soon attacked by the Beast, who imprisoned Victoria in a Fillorian dungeon to use her as bait for Travelers, and in particular, to later blackmail Penny.

Season 1

While held captive by the Beast, who was discovered to be Martin Chatwin, Victoria called out for help, begging anyone able to hear her cries to save her. After Victoria was rescued by the joint effort of Josh Hoberman, Penny and the new Physical Kids from Brakebills, she decided to live out her freedom from the Beast by exploring other worlds.

Season 2

Victoria is stated by Josh to have left him in Brakebills to travel around the multiverse.


Victoria is a female, mid- to early-twenties, with wavy light brown hair and a fair complexion.


Victoria wholly embraces her path as a Traveler, and is shown to be a free spirit, as seen when she quickly recovers from the trauma she endured at the hands of the Beast in order to explore the vast multiverse.

Magic and Abilities


  • Adept Magician: Victoria is a classically trained magician from Brakebills University, three years ahead of Quentin Coldwater as part of the 16 Third-year students who disappeared. She is also a Traveler, one of the two to attend Brakebills in the last 35 years. Despite the rarity of Travelers, of which little practical information is available on, Victoria has a substantial amount of control and discipline over her talent, being able to surpass terrestrial Traveling to perform Interfimensional Traveling, allowing her to explore the universe like no other magician. She is knowledgable to be able to help Penny Travel with more than one person with the help of a spell, and has enough confidence in her abilities to explore the vast universe on her own.
    • Psychic: Victoria is a Psychic disciple, able to listen and communicate with the mind of others.
      • Telelathy: Victoria was able to use her telepathic abilities to send out a distress call to others while she was trapped by the Beast.
      • Traveler: As a Traveler, Victoria is able to traverse instantly between locations freely without needing to resort to mediums, such as the Button, or through the application of portals. Unlike Penny, Victoria didn't fear this ability or seek to restrain it, instead embracing it fully, allowing her to control when and where she would Travel to. As a Traveler, she was able to psychically send out a distress call while held captive by the Beast. After her rescue, she would continue using her abilities to explore the vast multiverse, briefly with Josh Hoberman. She was able to help Penny by giving him a Traveler spell to allow him to Travel with more than one person.
        • Astral Projection: In addition to Traveling corporally, Victoria can separate her mind from her physical form, sending her consciousness out into the universe instead.
    • Mind control: Victoria, during her first year at Brakebills, was taught by Mayakovsky to use mind control, as a part of Brakebills South's curriculum.


  • Gifted Intellect: Victoria is able to grasp the full comprehension of magical theory as taught at Brakebills. As is the standard for all Magicians, she possesses at least an Above Average level of intelligence that enables her to utilize the concept of magic and apply it in the physical world.
    • Multilingual: Victoria, as well as every other Magician, is able to speak and read in a multitude of languages, as it is a basic requirement for spellcasting.
