30 Days of Harry Potter: Wand

As a requirement for any wizard or witch, one must most definitely have a wand. There are so many different types of wand, wand cores, etc… each specializing in something different. In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, we are introduced to Ollivander’s, where each and every witch or wizard receive their wands. And now, I’m here to write about what wand I received in my visit to Ollivander’s.


According to a Pottermore quiz that I took about my wand type, my wand is Alder wood with a Phoenix feather core 13″ and Surprisingly Swishy flexibility. 


Alder Wood

Alder Wood is an unyielding wood, but quite contrary, it’s owner isn’t as obstinate as the wand, but considerate and helpful. This wood is most suited for non-verbal spells, which it why it is most suitable for most advanced wizards and witches. (Taken from Pottermore.com)

Phoenix Core

The rarest core type and are capable for great ranges of magic. However, sometimes it acts on its own accord and it the most pickiest when it comes to potential owners. “These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.” (Pottermore.com)


And there you have it! That’s what my wand is made of. What is your wand?
