"...hornbeam selects for its life mate the talented witch or wizard with a single, pure passion, which some might call obsession (though I prefer the term ‘vision’)..."
-- Mr. Ollivander, in praise of his own wand wood (Pm)


A wand wood (Pm).

  • Mr. Ollivander's wand is hornbeam and dragon heartstring, twelve and three-quarter inches, slightly bendy  (Pm).
  • Viktor Krum's wand is hornbeam and dragon heartstring, ten and a quarter inches, made by Gregorovitch.  Krum's stiff, gruff manner is reflected in his wand being "quite rigid." (GF18).
