The Lexicon



The wizarding world is alive with magical creatures of every kind. Some are considered to be legends by Muggles, others are completely unknown and hidden away from Muggle eyes. The task of keeping all these amazing creatures hidden falls to the Ministries of Magic in each country. While some magical creatures are shy and reclusive, making the job of keeping them away from Muggles fairly simple, others are much more difficult to manage. Dragons, for example, require many square miles of mountainous wilderness and dragon reservations have been established all over the world to provide for their well-being.

Some magical creatures are not animals but rather are sentient beings with their own cultures and civilizations. Some of these beings, such as the Goblins, are integrated into wizarding society. Others, like Merfolk and Centaurs, prefer to manage their own affairs and keep themselves apart from their human magical brethren.
