Luis Vielma, one of the 49 victims of the Pulse shooting, has been memorialized with a Funko Pop! wizard figurine in his likeness.

Vielma, 22, was an employee at Hogwarts Castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Islands of Adventure. The Pop! figurine shows Vielma in his Gryffindor-House work attire, nametag and all.

The figure's creator, Brandon Anderson of Colorado Springs, Colorado, told the Huffington Post he didn't know Vielma personally, but made the figurine after reading a post suggesting it on a Funk Pop! Facebook page. 

The figurine was made as a tribute to Vielma's friends and family, and will not be sold to the public. 

MuggleNet.com's Facebook post says "You get to be a wizard, Luis."
