Blooder

"Raduff got a Blooder in the head because old Ugga wasn't quick enough with his club."
-- Goodman Kneen, in a letter to a cousin (QA3)

Commentary

Etymology

The word blood is defined as the red liquid that circulates in bodies of humans and other animals (Oxford English Dictionary).

Notes

Blood is likely to be what you get when a Blooder hits you during one of these early Quidditch matches, as they tended to be large enchanted flying rocks....

Both of the letters that mention Blooders can be found at the Museum of Quidditch in London (QA3, QA4).
