Makers of Fine Wands Since 2007
Rubeus Hagrid's Wand
Hagrid, beloved Keeper of Grounds and keys at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor of Care of Magical Creatures, one of Harry's dearest friends and protectors, and half-giant, is only somewhat hampered by the fact that his wand was broken in two, more than fifty years ago when he was expelled, having been maliciously accused of setting a deadly monster loose in the school. His wand remnants are clearly "hidden" in the tip of his ever-present pink parasol. Despite the damage to his wand, he manages to perform adequate, sometimes extremely effective, magic - demonstrating that the magic is in the wizard more than the wand. This fact is supported by Ollivander, who tells Harry that any competent wizard can perform magic with any wand, though their work will be most effective with a wand that is truly theirs. We have limited information about Hagrid's wand beyond this history. However, what we do know makes it clear that Hagrid and his wand were well-suited to each other... and that, despite his interrupted training, Hagrid is a True Wizard.
