Every witch and wizard has a wand to focus their magical powers. This is a list of the accepted wand woods and cores used on TNI as well as their meaning. This information is taken from Pottermore, or written by TNI staff.
 


Wand Components
All Wands must contain a minimum of one wood and one core. However they can have a dual-core or a blended core in their wand. Although, it is ill advised to have more than two cores as that can cause fatal backfires.

     While its not possible to blend the wood of the wand, you may have a wand handle of one wood and a body wood of another. Normally in these cases, the handle represents the heart of the wix. The body of the wand generally represents the wix's outward appearance.
 
Regarding dual woods and dual cores: These wands are incredibly rare, and generally more powerful than their single-cored, single-wooded siblings. They're also very complex wands. Please keep in mind that these special wands will be scrutinized during review time, and if the sheet does not support all components used, you will be asked to make a simpler wand.
 


Wand Flexibility
Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair - although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique.
 
The scale, from speed to strength:
whippy < easiest to learn and cast, least powerful
swishy
flexible
springy
sturdy
inflexible
rigid < hardest to learn and cast, most powerful 

There are other nuanced flexibilities, and this descriptor takes into account multiple factors. Those listed above are simply the most common.
 


Wand Length:
Many wandmakers simply match the wand length to the size of the wix who will use it, but this is a crude measure, and fails to take into account many other, important considerations. In my experience, longer wands might suit taller wizards, but they tend to be drawn to bigger personalities, and those of a more spacious and dramatic style of magic. Neater wands favour more elegant and refined spell-casting. However, no single aspect of wand composition should be considered in isolation of all the others, and the type of wood, the core and the flexibility may either counterbalance or enhance the attributes of the wand’s length.

Because numbers have known magical properties, a wand's length, much like its core, may symbolize something about its owner. Wands that are unusually short, anything less than 9", tend to belong to people "lacking" in personalities, Dolores Umbridge being a known example. Wands are generally 9 to 14 inches in length. Anything longer would only be permitted for those with giant blood.

In the charts below, each will be labeled as Harry Potter canon (HPC) or site canon (SC). This does not change their availability, but is a quick reference to their origination.
 
When choosing a wand, it is important to remember regions as woods would mainly be used locally. Practically all Hogwarts students would have an Ollivander's wand (HPC), one with a wood originating in Europe, Mahoutokoro students would use Asian woods, and so on. If it is not clear why your character has a foreign wand, you will be pended.

Wand Woods
Your wand is made very special and very unique. The wand chooses it's wizard and most likely chooses by the properties of the wand material itself. This chapter names the wood involved in wands and gives you a background behind the properties. You may very well learn a bit about yourself by reading.


The following descriptions of the powers and properties of various wand woods are taken from notes made, over a long career, by Mr Garrick Ollivander (HPC) and Katarzyna Jelen (SC).

Mr Ollivander introduces his notes on wand woods thus:

Every single wand is unique and will depend for its character on the particular tree and magical creature from which it derives its materials. Moreover, each wand, from the moment it finds its ideal owner, will begin to learn from and teach its human partner. Therefore, the following must be seen as general notes on each of the wood types I like to work with best, and ought not to be taken to describe any individual wand.

Only a minority of trees can produce wand quality wood (just as a minority of humans can produce magic). It takes years of experience to tell which ones have the gift, although the job is made easier if Bowtruckles are found nesting in the leaves, as they never inhabit mundane trees. The following notes on various wand woods should be regarded very much as a starting point, for this is the study of a lifetime, and I continue to learn with every wand I make and match.


 

Wood Type
Meaning
Acacia - HPC A very unusual wand wood, which I have found creates tricky wands that often refuse to produce magic for any but their owner, and also withhold their best effects from all but those most gifted. This sensitivity renders them difficult to place, and I keep only a small stock for those witches or wizards of sufficient subtlety, for acacia is not suited to what is commonly known as ‘bangs-and-smells’ magic. When well-matched, an acacia wand matches any for power, though it is often underrated due to the peculiarity of its temperament.
Alder - HPC Alder is an unyielding wood, yet I have discovered that its ideal owner is not stubborn or obstinate, but often helpful, considerate and most likable. Whereas most wand woods seek similarity in the characters of those they will best serve, alder is unusual in that it seems to desire a nature that is, if not precisely opposite to its own, then certainly of a markedly different type. When an alder wand is happily placed, it becomes a magnificent, loyal helpmate. Of all wand types, alder is best suited to non-verbal spell work, whence comes its reputation for being suitable only for the most advanced witches and wizards.
Apple - HPC Applewood wands are not made in great numbers. They are powerful and best suited to an owner of high aims and ideals, as this wood mixes poorly with Dark magic. It is said that the possessor of an apple wand will be well-loved and long-lived, and I have often noticed that customers of great personal charm find their perfect match in an applewood wand. An unusual ability to converse with other magical beings in their native tongues is often found among apple wand owners, who include the celebrated author of Merpeople: A Comprehensive Guide to Their Language and Customs, Dylan Marwood.
Ash - HPC The ash wand cleaves to its one true master and ought not to be passed on or gifted from the original owner, because it will lose power and skill. This tendency is extreme if the core is of unicorn. Old superstitions regarding wands rarely bear close examination, but I find that the old rhyme regarding rowan, chestnut, ash and hazel wands (rowan gossips, chestnut drones, ash is stubborn, hazel moans) contains a small nugget of truth. Those witches and wizards best suited to ash wands are not, in my experience, lightly swayed from their beliefs or purposes. However, the brash or over-confident witch or wizard, who often insists on trying wands of this prestigious wood, will be disappointed by its effects. The ideal owner may be stubborn, and will certainly be courageous, but never crass or arrogant.
Aspen - HPC Wand-quality aspen wood is white and fine-grained, and highly prized by all wand-makers for its stylish resemblance to ivory and its usually outstanding charmwork. The proper owner of the aspen wand is often an accomplished duelist, or destined to be so, for the aspen wand is one of those particularly suited to martial magic. An infamous and secretive eighteenth-century dueling club, which called itself The Silver Spears, was reputed to admit only those who owned aspen wands. In my experience, aspen wand owners are generally strong-minded and determined, more likely than most to be attracted by quests and new orders; this is a wand for revolutionaries.
Banyan - SC Though many make jokes about the bad luck associated with being chosen by a "strangler" wand, I have found that the true match of a banyan wood wand rarely cares for such rumors. Banyan wands, found mainly in India, though handfuls can be found throughout the world, choose individuals who will never stop seeking to grow and change themselves, much like the plant itself. They are able to find the silver lining in any situation, and are never the types to sit down and accept their lot. In a wix chosen by a banyan wand, you will never find contentedness, but these individuals will find joy if given the opportunity for innovation and education. The owner of a banyan wand will be a student long after they graduate.
Beech - HPC The true match for a beech wand will be, if young, wise beyond his or her years, and if full-grown, rich in understanding and experience. Beech wands perform very weakly for the narrow-minded and intolerant. Such wizards and witches, having obtained a beech wand without having been suitably matched (yet coveting this most desirable, richly hued and highly prized wand wood), have often presented themselves at the homes of learned wandmakers such as myself, demanding to know the reason for their handsome wand’s lack of power. When properly matched, the beech wand is capable of a subtlety and artistry rarely seen in any other wood, hence its lustrous reputation.
Birch - SC Birch is one of the first trees to grow on bare soil and has come to symbolize fertility, healing and rebirth. It is known for its protective healing abilities and was used to drive out evil spirits and protect from the faery folk. Wands of birch are drawn to those coming out of difficult challenges, or struggling to overcome internal problems. Those involved in violent attacks or struggling with mental illness will find a helpful partner in this wand. I have found that birch is also particularly drawn to those who wish to be parents.
Black Ironwood - SC An African import, remarkable in that it will sink rather than float in water. Although its strength makes it a powerful wandwood, I have found that it is rarely used, even in African wandcraft as its weight, particularly in longer wands, impedes spellcasting, and it is next-to-useless underwater. These wands that match well with the grounded and the practical - you will never find an ironwood wand in the hands of a daydreamer. One particular quirk I have noticed - and perhaps what makes up for its faults - is that it is impossible to steal an ironwood wand. When someone who does not hold the wands loyalty attempts to lift it against the owners wishes, the weight becomes so immense that no amount of force could procure the wand from its owner. Black Ironwood wands can only be purchased in Africa.
Black Walnut - HPC Less common than the standard walnut wand, that of black walnut seeks a master of good instincts and powerful insight. Black walnut is a very handsome wood, but not the easiest to master. It has one pronounced quirk, which is that it is abnormally attuned to inner conflict, and loses power dramatically if its possessor practices any form of self-deception. If the witch or wizard is unable or unwilling to be honest with themselves or others, the wand often fails to perform adequately and must be matched with a new owner if it is to regain its former prowess. Paired with a sincere, self-aware owner, however, it becomes one of the most loyal and impressive wands of all, with a particular flair in all kinds of charmwork.
Blackthorn - HPC Blackthorn, which is a very unusual wand wood, has the reputation, in my view well-merited, of being best suited to a warrior. This does not necessarily mean that its owner practices the Dark Arts (although it is undeniable that those who do so will enjoy the blackthorn wand’s prodigious power); one finds blackthorn wands among the Aurors as well as among the denizens of Azkaban. It is a curious feature of the blackthorn bush, which sports wicked thorns, that it produces its sweetest berries after the hardest frosts, and the wands made from this wood appear to need to pass through danger or hardship with their owners to become truly bonded. Given this condition, the blackthorn wand will become as loyal and faithful a servant as one could wish.
Blue Spruce - SC Like spruce, this is a strong wood that excels in everything except the Dark Arts. These wands are drawn particularly to those with bright, social personalities but who have a stubborn streak. They pair well with those naturally drawn to standing their ground, no matter the circumstance. In my experience, the ideal owner of a blue spruce wand is a lot like the wood itself: ready to break before bending.
Broom - SC Though not any one particular wood, wands made of old brooms have such unique quirks, I feel they deserve to be mentioned. These wands are most commonly owned by quidditch players as the conversion is not easy or cheap, and there is a limited amount of wood to work with, which means only very skilled wandmakers are capable of doing it. However, when it is done, the results are fiercely loyal wands that cannot be won away in duels. If used by the person who flew with the broom in question, these wands will also already have a finely tuned perception of the spell caster's magic style. Few other people will be able to get results out of such a wand, though in the case of an injury or death, I have known close friends or family to be awarded loyalty.
Butternut - SC Butternut trees grow in North America and produce a lightweight wand wood, as well as nuts to be used in baking and making candy. Wands made from this wood are drawn to equally sweet people, and this is likely what started the rumor that those with butternut wands are easily manipulated. While I have found this true in more than once case, the ideal match of a butternut wand will rarely be found doing anything that puts others in harms way. Butternut wands can only be purchased in North America.
Cedar - HPC Whenever I meet one who carries a cedar wand, I find strength of character and unusual loyalty. My father, Gervaise Ollivander, used always to say, ‘you will never fool the cedar carrier,’ and I agree: the cedar wand finds its perfect home where there is perspicacity and perception. I would go further than my father, however, in saying that I have never yet met the owner of a cedar wand whom I would care to cross, especially if harm is done to those of whom they are fond. The witch or wizard who is well-matched with cedar carries the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often comes as a shock to those who have thoughtlessly challenged them.
Cherry - HPC This very rare wand wood creates a wand of strange power, most highly prized by the wizarding students of the school of Mahoutokoro in Japan, where those who own cherry wands have special prestige. The Western wand-purchaser should dispel from their minds any notion that the pink blossom of the living tree makes for a frivolous or merely ornamental wand, for cherry wood often makes a wand that possesses truly lethal power, whatever the core, but if teamed with dragon heartstring, the wand ought never to be teamed with a wizard without exceptional self-control and strength of mind.
Chestnut - HPC This is a most curious, multi-faceted wood, which varies greatly in its character depending on the wand core, and takes a great deal of colour from the personality that possesses it. The wand of chestnut is attracted to witches and wizards who are skilled tamers of magical beasts, those who possess great gifts in Herbology, and those who are natural fliers. However, when paired with dragon heartstring, it may find its best match among those who are overfond of luxury and material things, and less scrupulous than they should be about how they are obtained. Conversely, three successive heads of the Wizengamot have possessed chestnut and unicorn wands, for this combination shows a predilection for those concerned with all manner of justice.
Cypress - HPC Cypress wands are associated with nobility. The great medieval wandmaker, Geraint Ollivander, wrote that he was always honoured to match a cypress wand, for he knew he was meeting a witch or wizard who would die a heroic death. Fortunately, in these less blood-thirsty times, the possessors of cypress wands are rarely called upon to lay down their lives, though doubtless many of them would do so if required. Wands of cypress find their soul mates among the brave, the bold and the self-sacrificing: those who are unafraid to confront the shadows in their own and others’ natures.
Dogwood - HPC Dogwood is one of my own personal favourites, and I have found that matching a dogwood wand with its ideal owner is always entertaining. Dogwood wands are quirky and mischievous; they have playful natures and insist upon partners who can provide them with scope for excitement and fun. It would be quite wrong, however, to deduce from this that dogwood wands are not capable of serious magic when called upon to do so; they have been known to perform outstanding spells under difficult conditions, and when paired with a suitably clever and ingenious witch or wizard, can produce dazzling enchantments. An interesting foible of many dogwood wands is that they refuse to perform non-verbal spells and they are often rather noisy.
Ebony - HPC This jet-black wand wood has an impressive appearance and reputation, being highly suited to all manner of combative magic, and to Transfiguration. Ebony is happiest in the hand of those with the courage to be themselves. Frequently non-conformist, highly individual or comfortable with the status of outsider, ebony wand owners have been found both among the ranks of the Order of the Phoenix and among the Death Eaters. In my experience the ebony wand’s perfect match is one who will hold fast to his or her beliefs, no matter what the external pressure, and will not be swayed lightly from their purpose.
Elder - HPC We are not allowing the use of Elder wood at this time. This is here for reference purposes only.
The rarest wand wood of all, and reputed to be deeply unlucky, the elder wand is trickier to master than any other. It contains powerful magic, but scorns to remain with any owner who is not the superior of his or her company; it takes a remarkable wizard to keep the elder wand for any length of time. The old superstition, ‘wand of elder, never prosper,’ has its basis in this fear of the wand, but in fact, the superstition is baseless, and those foolish wandmakers who refuse to work with elder do so more because they doubt they will be able to sell their products than from fear of working with this wood. The truth is that only a highly unusual person will find their perfect match in elder, and on the rare occasion when such a pairing occurs, I take it as certain that the witch or wizard in question is marked out for a special destiny. An additional fact that I have unearthed during my long years of study is that the owners of elder wands almost always feel a powerful affinity with those chosen by rowan.
Elm - HPC The unfounded belief that only pure-bloods can produce magic from elm wands was undoubtedly started by some elm wand owner seeking to prove his own blood credentials, for I have known perfect matches of elm wands who are Muggle-borns. The truth is that elm wands prefer owners with presence, magical dexterity and a certain native dignity. Of all wand woods, elm, in my experience, produces the fewest accidents, the least foolish errors, and the most elegant charms and spells; these are sophisticated wands, capable of highly advanced magic in the right hands (which, again, makes it highly desirable to those who espouse the pure-blood philosophy).
English Oak - HPC A wand for good times and bad, this is a friend as loyal as the wizard who deserves it. Wands of English oak demand partners of strength, courage and fidelity. Less well-known is the propensity for owners of English oak wands to have powerful intuition, and, often, an affinity with the magic of the natural world, with the creatures and plants that are necessary to wizardkind for both magic and pleasure. The oak tree is called King of the Forest from the winter solstice up until the summer solstice, and its wood should only be collected during that time (holly becomes King as the days begin to shorten again, and so holly should only be gathered as the year wanes. This divide is believed to be the origin of the old superstition, “when his wand’s oak and hers is holly, then to marry would be folly,” a superstition that I have found baseless). It is said that Merlin’s wand was of English oak (though his grave has never been found, so this cannot be proven).
Eucalyptus - SC Eucalyptus trees grow quickly, wands made of this wood channel that liveliness to be both willing and powerful companions. They rarely protest being used however their handler wishes, though it is rare to find these wands in the hands of a dark wix as they bond most easily to those who help those around them. It is not unheard of, however, and I have discovered at least one eucalyptus owner to be helpful only to their own ends. Eucalyptus can only be purchased in Australia and surrounding islands.
Fir - HPC My august grandfather, Gerbold Octavius Ollivander, always called wands of this wood ‘the survivor’s wand,’ because he had sold it to three wizards who subsequently passed through mortal peril unscathed. There is no doubt that this wood, coming as it does from the most resilient of trees, produces wands that demand staying power and strength of purpose in their true owners, and that they are poor tools in the hands of the changeable and indecisive. Fir wands are particularly suited to Transfiguration, and favour owners of focused, strong-minded and, occasionally, intimidating demeanour.
Furze - SC Furze, or Gorse was used to sweep important areas and is seen as a purifier. It is said that burning the blooms and shoots will calm the wind, it is also set on fire to burn away all the old growth and make way for the new. It is seen as a good plant to use when wanting to make new starts or begin new ventures. I have found that furze wands are just as attracted to explorers as their ideal partners are to adventure.
Gingko - SC Ginkgo is a highly unusual wandwood, and is rarely seen in the West. For over a millennium, it competed with plum as the most popular Chinese wandwood, however, as gingko trees ceased to be a wild species, the wood began losing favor. This was due in part to the belief that wild woods create stronger wands - a belief held even by wand makers, making modern ginkgo wands quite rare. I personally have only ever encountered a handful of such wands, and I must say that I am not convinced that they are weaker than any other wood. It has great staying power, and while it seems to choose owners who are easily angered, it is not a quick-changing wood and often requires a bit of convincing when performing new spells. On at least one occasion, this quirk has prevented ginkgo owners from performing magic they might come to regret.
Halesia - SC A beautiful and elegant wood which creates wands much the same, halesia wands most often bond to wix who possess a distinct poise. The true owner of a silverbell wand, as they are also called, will be socially dexterous and able to navigate most situations with just their words. In my experience, many owners of halesia wands go on to become delegates and mediators. The wands themselves are also quite graceful, and will make few mistakes even in the hands of a learning wix, though purchasing a silverbell wand without being properly matched is a mistake. They are sold only in North America and East Asia, where halesia trees grow. Halesia wands can only be purchased in North America and East Asia.
Hawthorn - HPC The wandmaker Gregorovitch wrote that hawthorn ‘makes a strange, contradictory wand, as full of paradoxes as the tree that gave it birth, whose leaves and blossoms heal, and yet whose cut branches smell of death.’ While I disagree with many of Gregorovitch’s conclusions, we concur about hawthorn wands, which are complex and intriguing in their natures, just like the owners who best suit them. Hawthorn wands may be particularly suited to healing magic, but they are also adept at curses, and I have generally observed that the hawthorn wand seems most at home with a conflicted nature, or with a witch or wizard passing through a period of turmoil. Hawthorn is not easy to master, however, and I would only ever consider placing a hawthorn wand in the hands of a witch or wizard of proven talent, or the consequences might be dangerous. Hawthorn wands have a notable peculiarity: their spells can, when badly handled, backfire.
Hazel - HPC A sensitive wand, hazel often reflects its owner’s emotional state, and works best for a master who understands and can manage their own feelings. Others should be very careful handling a hazel wand if its owner has recently lost their temper, or suffered a serious disappointment, because the wand will absorb such energy and discharge it unpredictably. The positive aspect of a hazel wand more than makes up for such minor discomforts, however, for it is capable of outstanding magic in the hands of the skillful, and is so devoted to its owner that it often ‘wilts’ (which is to say, it expels all its magic and refuses to perform, often necessitating the extraction of the core and its insertion into another casing, if the wand is still required) at the end of its master’s life (if the core is unicorn hair, however, there is no hope; the wand will almost certainly have ‘died’). Hazel wands also have the unique ability to detect water underground, and will emit silvery, tear-shaped puffs of smoke if passing over concealed springs and wells.
Heather - SC Due to its association with bees, over the centuries, heather came to represent healing and a way to be closer to the other side. Though this may have been a bit backwards, there was a note of truth: heather wood wands are inherently drawn to those with a connection to the other world, as well as those who feel out of place and different. I’ve found that wix with further ability than the norm have these wands more often than others. All in all, though, heather can be found properly matched to anyone who feels that they haven’t found a place in the world.
Hemlock - SC Hemlock is a quick wand wood and allows for fast reactions - it follows that this wands ideal owner has them. Wands of Hemlock have a tendency to spark when they feel their owner isn't quick enough. I have found Hemlock wands to be particularly dangerous in the hands of the easily angered.
Hickory - SC This wood is tough yet flexible and makes a good match for those who work with their hands, craftsmen, hunters, and archers. Moreover, it is most drawn to hands on learners and those who are physically active. Hickory was among the first woods to be affordable enough to be purchased by the middle and lower classes, as it had gained a poor reputation among the rich, who spent little time doing physical work.
Holly - HPC Holly is one of the rarer kinds of wand woods; traditionally considered protective, it works most happily for those who may need help overcoming a tendency to anger and impetuosity. At the same time, holly wands often choose owners who are engaged in some dangerous and often spiritual quest. Holly is one of those woods that varies most dramatically in performance depending on the wand core, and it is a notoriously difficult wood to team with phoenix feather, as the wood's volatility conflicts strangely with the phoenix's detachment. In the unusual event of such a pairing finding its ideal match, however, nothing and nobody should stand in their way.
Honeysuckle - SC Also known as Woodbine, these wands are most drawn to flirtatious witches and wizards - they are seducers wands. For that reason, it is rare that a child will be matched with a honeysuckle wand as their first. I have seen one instance of this, and after a bit of observation and questioning discovered the reason for the wand being drawn to that particular owner: even at a young age, they were exceedingly manipulative, using their cheerful personality to get other people to do what they wished. It is a popular belief that one should never trust a honeysuckle owner in a committed relationship - and while the ideal match of a woodbine wand does tend to have a hard time settling down, I have observed them becoming dedicated partners on more than one occasion.
Hornbeam - HPC My own wand is made of hornbeam, and so it is with all due modesty that I state that 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’), which will almost always be realized. Hornbeam wands adapt more quickly than almost any other to their owner’s style of magic, and will become so personalized, so quickly, that other people will find them extremely difficult to use even for the most simple of spells. Hornbeam wands likewise absorb their owner’s code of honour, whatever that might be, and will refuse to perform acts - whether for good or ill - that do not tally with their master’s principles. A particularly fine-tuned and sentient wand.
Ivy - SC Ivy is a creeping, stubborn plant, which will grow back from the smallest sprouts if damaged. It can grow in most environments and for looking so fragile, it is very strong. This wood often represents self-growth, and I have found that wands of ivy most often choose those who seek to better themselves. Whether spiritual or mental, a great amount of fortitude is required of those who wish to use an ivy wand - they rarely tolerate willful ignorance, but that doesn’t mean they’re easily swayed from their beliefs. The mental strength and strong morals that often come with a true match of an ivy wand makes for someone who is more easily able to resist the effects of the imperious curse - though I cannot recommend they try this out. Even those with tremendous fortitude have been known to perform horrendous acts under the powerful curse.
Kaya - SC A lovely yellow wandwood of Japanese origin, Kaya is extremely rare in British wandmaking. Wands of kaya were long thought to boost a young wizards logic and intelligence. On the contrary, these wands match well with those who already have impressive deductive reasoning, rather than causing it in their owners. These are wands for arithmancers, mathematicians, and in at least one particularly notable case, detectives.
Larch - HPC Strong, durable and warm in colour, larch has long been valued as an attractive and powerful wand wood. Its reputation for instilling courage and confidence in the user has ensured that demand has always outstripped supply. This much sought-after wand is, however, hard to please in the matter of ideal owners, and trickier to handle than many imagine. I find that it always creates wands of hidden talents and unexpected effects, which likewise describes the master who deserves it. It is often the case that the witch or wizard who belongs to the larch wand may never realise the full extent of their considerable talents until paired with it, but that they will then make an exceptional match.
Laurel - HPC It is said that a laurel wand cannot perform a dishonourable act, although in the quest for glory (a not uncommon goal for those best suited to these wands), I have known laurel wands perform powerful and sometimes lethal magic. Laurel wands are sometimes called fickle, but this is unfair. The laurel wand seems unable to tolerate laziness in a possessor, and it is in such conditions that it is most easily and willingly won away. Otherwise, it will cleave happily to its first match forever, and indeed has the unusual and engaging attribute of issuing a spontaneous lightning strike if another witch or wizard attempts to steal it.
Linden - SC Linden, or lime, is most commonly used in Germany, where it was made popular by its association with Freya, a powerful Norse goddess. Some still hold the belief that Freya is the true origin of witches and wizards, and those people often hold linden wands as more pure than others. Due to this, it is held in high regard in pureblood circles. However, the wood itself holds no regard for purity or regality. It often chooses wizards with strong protective instincts, particularly mothers.
Madrona - SC Wands made of Madrona are most suited to those who can adapt quickly. It is an ever-changing wood, always revealing new secrets, much like their ideal owner. Those who are chosen by madrona wands should be careful not to lose their sense of self among all the changes to themselves and their life. Madrona trees are native to the Pacific coast in America, and the wands are therefore rare in British shops.
Mahogany - SC To use an old muggle adage, the phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none" best describes this wand wood. Though muggles tend to place a high value upon this wood due to its attractive appearance and overall strength, it is known in wizarding circles to be a wood of merely average quality. The owner of a mahogany wand will be similarly average. Mahogany owners need never fear being terrible at something, though they are rarely the best in the room either. The ideal wielder is flexible and adept at nearly anything they try, but a prideful or ambitious individual matched with a mahogany wand is often in for disappointment later in life. Though you will not find mahogany among the past or future Ministers of Magic, I have known many owners of Mahogany wands to have long, happy and successful lives.
Maple - HPC I have often found that those chosen by maple wands are by nature travellers and explorers; they are not stay-at-home wands, and prefer ambition in their witch or wizard, otherwise their magic grows heavy and lacklustre. Fresh challenges and regular changes of scene cause this wand to literally shine, burnishing itself as it grows, with its partner, in ability and status. This is a beautiful and desirable wood, and wand quality maple has been among the most costly for centuries. Possession of a maple wand has long been a mark of status, because of its reputation as the wand of high achievers.
Mayhaw - SC Another American wood, the may hawthorn trees grow primarily in the swamps in the southern United States. Because of their habitat and because of the difficulty of the wood to work with, it is nearly impossible to find a mayhaw wand for sale outside of North America. Violetta Beauvais, a well-known wand maker of the 1920s, used only mayhaw wood for her wands. In most woods, this would have been a poor decision that would have resulted in many poorly matched wands, particularly as she also only used Rougarou hair as a core. However, mayhaw wands maintain a certain flexibility of character, and Violetta maintained a certain level of genius. When paired with Rougarou hair, mayhaw wands most often bond with frugal, hard-working individuals - particularly those who have suffered a great loss. In 1920s America (shortly after World War 1 and entering the Great Depression), this described almost all of the working population. Mayhaw wands can only be purchased in North America.
Olive - SC Olive is a giving tree, and its ideal owner is also generous and peaceful. Quieter cores such as unicorn hair or any fairy core most often find themselves bound to those who stand apart from others, though a more active or involved core may simply be found in the hands of a wizard with strong morals. Though I have found that some olive wand owners lead lonely lives, they do not typically consider it a hardship. Olive wood wands would be equally at home in the hands of a diplomat or a shepherd.
Pear - HPC This golden-toned wood produces wands of splendid magical powers, which give of their best in the hands of the warm-hearted, the generous and the wise. Possessors of pear wands are, in my experience, usually popular and well-respected. I do not know of a single instance where a pear wand has been discovered in the possession of a Dark witch or wizard. Pear wands are among the most resilient, and I have often observed that they may still present a remarkable appearance of newness, even after many years of hard use.
Pine - HPC The straight-grained pine wand always chooses an independent, individual master who may be perceived as a loner, intriguing and perhaps mysterious. Pine wands enjoy being used creatively, and unlike some others, will adapt unprotestingly to new methods and spells. Many wandmakers insist that pine wands are able to detect, and perform best for, owners who are destined for long lives, and I can confirm this in as much as I have never personally known the master of a pine wand to die young. The pine wand is one of those that is most sensitive to non-verbal magic.
Pisonia - SC This wand wood attaches itself to someone with extreme, perhaps overbearing, emotions. For a wix that is able to control it, this wand is a formidable ally. However, Pisonia wands are not popular with many wand-makers in the Pacific Islands; instead it is often exported to those less knowledgeable about the truth of this tree. I have found that if a wix does not possess sufficient control of themselves and the wood, it is not unusual for the wand to react detrimentally to the owners health.
Plum - SC A wood used traditionally in Japan and China, Plumwood has recently gained popularity in Central Europe as Apple has become more scarce. Like Applewood, Plum finds its ideal match in a charming individual with high aims and ideals. However, Plumwood is easier to bend to the owners will and can be called upon to perform powerful and complex Dark magic, provided it is in line with the aims and ideals of its owner. The Plum wand favours wizards destined to leave an imprint upon history, often to the detriment of the owners lifespan. In the rare case a wizard is matched with a Plumwood wand upon failing to make a match with an Applewood wand, I have found it best to keep the information to contact their next of kin on hand. Plumwood wielders also tend to have an affinity with languages as Applewood wielders do, though those chosen by Plumwood tend to be better with human languages than those of magical creatures.
Poplar - HPC “If you seek integrity, search first among the poplars,” was a great maxim of my grandfather, Gerbold Ollivander, and my own experience of poplar wands and their owners tallies exactly with his. Here is a wand to rely upon, of consistency, strength and uniform power, always happiest when working with a witch or wizard of clear moral vision. There is a tired old joke among lesser wandmakers that no poplar wand has ever chosen a politician, but here they show their lamentable ignorance: two of the Ministry’s most accomplished Ministers for Magic, Eldritch Diggory and Evangeline Orpington, were the possessors of fine, Ollivander-made poplar wands.
Red Oak - HPC You will often hear the ignorant say that red oak is an infallible sign of its owner’s hot temper. In fact, the true match for a red oak wand is possessed of unusually fast reactions, making it a perfect duelling wand. Less common than English oak, I have found that its ideal master is light of touch, quick-witted and adaptable, often the creator of distinctive, trademark spells, and a good man or woman to have beside one in a fight. Red oak wands are, in my opinion, among the most handsome.
Redwood - HPC Wand-quality redwood is in short supply, yet constant demand, due to its reputation for bringing good fortune to its owner. As is usually the case with wandlore, the general populace have the truth back to front: redwood wands are not themselves lucky, but are strongly attracted to witches and wizards who already possess the admirable ability to fall on their feet, to make the right choice, to snatch advantage from catastrophe. The combination of such a witch or wizard with a redwood wand is always intriguing, and I generally expect to hear of exciting exploits when I send this special pairing out from my workshop.
Reed - SC One of the more delicate, and difficult, wand woods, yet those who use them insist that these wands have a way of making magic into an art. Whether that is a trait of the wand or of its ideal owner is unclear - for reed will always choose a wixen inclined in artistic pursuits, whether that is writing, painting, music, or any other creative expression.
Rosewood - SC Rosewood makes for a graceful wand, and is often paired with fairy wings, though this pair makes for an extremely flighty wand - much like the wix who will be matched with it. These wands are made for capricious and impulsive individuals, who wander between one thing and the next at a whim. They are taken by new ideas and are often energetic and excitable, and not afraid to draw their more grounded companions along with them. Ideal owners of rosewood wands are generally unafraid of challenging social norms and expectations - or at least, of ignoring them entirely. Rosewood wands are rarely paired with more solid cores such as griffin claw or dragon heartstring, though when they are, I find that it adds a certain dependability to the wand.
Rowan - HPC Rowan wood has always been much-favoured for wands, because it is reputed to be more protective than any other, and in my experience renders all manner of defensive charms especially strong and difficult to break. It is commonly stated that no Dark witch or wizard ever owned a rowan wand, and I cannot recall a single instance where one of my own rowan wands has gone on to do evil in the world. Rowan is most happily placed with the clear-headed and the pure-hearted, but this reputation for virtue ought not to fool anyone - these wands are the equal of any, often the better, and frequently out-perform others in duels.
Sequoia - SC Sequoia is an american wand wood, and is often seen as more modern than its brother the mayhaw. It became somewhat popular in the 1960s with the hippie movement, as these wands most often choose those who are in tune with nature and their surroundings, but then fell out of fashion and has recently made a comeback. Sequoia is most often found in the hands of American magizoologists and herbologists. One should avoid making the mistake that sequoia wands will always choose those who lead a passive lifestyle, however, as sequoia wands don’t often find themselves in the hands of those who will sit by and let things happen. Whether with words or with fists, sequoia often finds itself in the hands of those who aren’t afraid to stand up. Sequoia wands can only be purchased in North America.
Silver Fir - SC Those who are unfamiliar with wand lore may note that silver fir wands are almost always found in the hands of those who succeed, but any wix who thinks such a wand will be drawn to them simply because of their status will be sorely disappointed. Determination and ambition are required of anyone who wishes to wield such a stubborn wand as these, and those content to remain where they are will find they receive poor results or no results at all. Those who have ambition in their personal lives may find a silver fir wand to be a loyal partner. I have most often found that silver fir wands are are best matched to underdogs determined to claw their way to the top at any cost.
Silver Lime - HPC This unusual and highly attractive wand wood was greatly in vogue in the nineteenth century. Demand outstripped supply, and unscrupulous wandmakers dyed substandard woods in an effort to fool purchasers into believing that they had purchased silver lime. The reasons for these wands’ desirability lay not only in their unusually handsome appearance, but also because they had a reputation for performing best for Seers and those skilled in Legilimency, mysterious arts both, which consequently gave the possessor of a silver lime wand considerable status. When demand was at its height, wandmaker Arturo Cephalopos claimed that the association between silver lime and clairvoyance was ‘a falsehood circulated by merchants like Gerbold Ollivander (my own grandfather), who have overstocked their workshops with silver lime and hope to shift their surplus.’ But Cephalopos was a slipshod wandmaker and an ignoramus, and nobody, Seer or not, was surprised when he went out of business.
Spindle Tree - SC The wood of the Spindle tree is bright, colourful and was used to make spindles. Likewise, their owners are bright, playful, and full of life - at the very least to others. These wands attach themselves to witches and wizards who love to make people happy, even if they don't necessarily feel that way themselves, and a well-matched spindle wand will be a powerful helpmate.
Spruce - HPC Unskilled wandmakers call spruce a difficult wood, but in doing so they reveal their own ineptitude. It is quite true that it requires particular deftness to work with spruce, which produces wands that are ill-matched with cautious or nervous natures, and become positively dangerous in fumbling fingers. The spruce wand requires a firm hand, because it often appears to have its own ideas about what magic it ought to be called upon to produce. However, when a spruce wand meets its match - which, in my experience, is a bold spell-caster with a good sense of humour - it becomes a superb helper, intensely loyal to their owners and capable of producing particularly flamboyant and dramatic effects.
Sycamore - HPC The sycamore makes a questing wand, eager for new experience and losing brilliance if engaged in mundane activities. It is a quirk of these handsome wands that they may combust if allowed to become ‘bored,’ and many witches and wizards, settling down into middle age, are disconcerted to find their trusty wand bursting into flame in their hand as they ask it, one more time, to fetch their slippers. As may be deduced, the sycamore’s ideal owner is curious, vital and adventurous, and when paired with such an owner, it demonstrates a capacity to learn and adapt that earns it a rightful place among the world’s most highly-prized wand woods.
Vine - HPC The druids considered anything with a woody stem as a tree, and vine makes wands of such a special nature that I have been happy to continue their ancient tradition. Vine wands are among the less common types, and I have been intrigued to notice that their owners are nearly always those witches or wizards who seek a greater purpose, who have a vision beyond the ordinary and who frequently astound those who think they know them best. Vine wands seem strongly attracted by personalities with hidden depths, and I have found them more sensitive than any other when it comes to instantly detecting a prospective match. Reliable sources claim that these wands can emit magical effects upon the mere entrance into their room of a suitable owner, and I have twice observed the phenomenon in my own shop.
Walnut - HPC Highly intelligent witches and wizards ought to be offered a walnut wand for trial first, because in nine cases out of ten, the two will find in each other their ideal mate. Walnut wands are often found in the hands of magical innovators and inventors; this is a handsome wood possessed of unusual versatility and adaptability. A note of caution, however: while some woods are difficult to dominate, and may resist the performance of spells that are foreign to their natures, the walnut wand will, once subjugated, perform any task its owner desires, provided that the user is of sufficient brilliance. This makes for a truly lethal weapon in the hands of a witch or wizard of no conscience, for the wand and the wizard may feed from each other in a particularly unhealthy manner.
White Pine - SC I have found that white pine wands are drawn exclusively to those with level heads. A properly chosen owner of white pine will have the ability to stay calm even in the most dire of circumstances. This is a skill that lends itself well to healers and first responders, but it is truly terrifying in a dark wizard. These wands will perform any spell, though it often reacts poorly in the hands of the overly emotional.
White Poplar - SC Also known as The Whispering and Quivering Tree, the White Poplar is known for loudly moving and rustling in even the slightest gust of wind. Likewise, the White Poplar wand is most at home among the talkative and energetic. White Poplar wands are very resistant to breakage, and their owners are likewise durable and able to withstand even the most difficult challenges. The White Poplar is a powerful martial wand when wielded by an ideal match, wizards who, in my experience, tend to have something to fight for. The White Poplar most often bonds with those who carry something or someone dear to their heart; it makes an incredible protectors wand. They are especially adept at Shield Charms and Patronuses, those challenging a White Poplar wielder may be surprised by their ferocity in protecting what they love.
Willow - HPC Willow is an uncommon wand wood with healing power, and I have noted that the ideal owner for a willow wand often has some (usually unwarranted) insecurity, however well they may try and hide it. While many confident customers insist on trying a willow wand (attracted by their handsome appearance and well-founded reputation for enabling advanced, non-verbal magic) my willow wands have consistently selected those of greatest potential, rather than those who feel they have little to learn. It has always been a proverb in my family that he who has furthest to travel will go fastest with willow.
Witch Hazel - SC Witch hazel has long been associated with cleansing properties, and was used in ancient times as a treatment for acne and blemishes. It has been said to be a wand of purebloods, a rumour no doubt started among those enamoured with pureblood superiority. This rumour is demonstrably untrue, as I myself have known many successful Muggleborn witches and wizards with witch hazel wands. Rather, witch hazel tends to attach itself to those devoted to the idea of purity and cleanliness. This does not mean that this wand will never be found in the hands of a dark wizard - any wix with the ambition and drive to clean and improve the world by their own vision will find a witch hazel wand to be a powerful companion indeed.
Yew - HPC Yew wands are among the rarer kinds, and their ideal matches are likewise unusual, and occasionally notorious. The wand of yew is reputed to endow its possessor with the power of life and death, which might, of course, be said of all wands; and yet yew retains a particularly dark and fearsome reputation in the spheres of dueling and all curses. However, it is untrue to say (as those unlearned in wandlore often do) that those who use yew wands are more likely to be attracted to the Dark Arts than another. The witch or wizard best suited to a yew wand might equally prove a fierce protector of others. Wands hewn from these most long-lived trees have been found in the possession of heroes quite as often as of villains. Where wizards have been buried with wands of yew, the wand generally sprouts into a tree guarding the dead owner’s grave. What is certain, in my experience, is that the yew wand never chooses either a mediocre or a timid owner.

Wand Cores

The core is known to influence the personality of the wand produced with it. This combination between wand wood and core make the wand unique to the wizard, and is the main reason why using another's wand often doesn't work as well as using your own. As you work with your wand through your years at Hogwarts, you learn to master the temperament of the wand, the weight in your hand and the power behind the wand.

 

Core
Meaning
Acromantula Web - HPC If you're thinking about having a wand made with Acromantula web, you're probably a fan of having your wand confiscated by the authorities. Using a wand with this core has been illegal in Britain since 1782, after it was discovered that the wielder of an Acromantula web wand has particular ability with Dark magics, especially the Imperius curse. There are certain diplomatic exceptions, as it is a traditional core for Asian wands, but even those are temporary, and many wizard diplomats on long-term assignments find themselves compelled to procure replacement wands for their stay.
Augurey Tail Feather - HPC Augureys, or Irish phoenixes, were once associated with powerful Dark wands, as their cries were thought to signify an upcoming death. However, they were in reality never a strong Dark core, and were more accurately a powerful core for Divinations. Misunderstood students may find themselves bonded to an augurey wand, although these wands are altogether quite rare.
Basilisk Fang - SC The basilisk is a deadly creature, known to be king of serpents. Poison dwells in its fangs and the mere gaze of a basilisk can bring death upon its victims. A basilisk fang would be a wise choice for one who has mastered the magical arts and can control its dark influence; that is, of course, if one wishes to cast good-willed charms and spells. For those who wish to cast hexes and dark magic, the basilisk fang is the core for you.
Basilisk Skin - HPC Basilisk wands are incredibly rare, as the beasts are rare to begin with and hard to kill. Due to the rarity, they often are passed down from generation to generation, so basilisk-core wands are either the heirloom of Slytherin-type Pureblood families or reforged wands from family cores. The occasional new basilisk wand will almost always bond to a Parselmouth or budding Dark Wizard. Very little good comes out of wielders of basilisk wands.
Billywig Stinger - HPC Billywig stingers are not common in Britain, but are occasionally imported from Australia, the native habitat of the Billywig. Billywig wands bond almost exclusively to light-hearted pranksters, and are extremely capricious- at one moment it will produce the strongest Cheering Charm in the school, but another time it will object to being used as a potion stirrer and siphon up hours of work without so much as a by-your-leave. When they do bond to a witch or wizard, they tend to be of Hufflepuff or Gryffindor.
Blast-Ended Skrewt Claw - SC Lending both protection strength and fire control, this is a good core for those who enjoy the outdoors.
Boomslang Venom - HPC Boomslang venom, whether crystallized or in a rarer liquid core, provides a small boost to jinxes and hexes thanks to its venomous qualities. However, when a wandmaker undertakes the dangerous task of working with the raw venom, it is generally with the aim of creating a powerful Transfiguration wand. Whether or not the advantages outweigh the risks is not generally agreed upon in wandmaking circles.
Centaur Tail Hair - SC The sheer strength and speed of the centaur is harbored in its tail hair lending both quickness and ferocity when casting spells, charms, jinxes and hexes.
Centaur Mane Hair - SC The cool logic of the centaur makes this a very stable core material. Long known for their intellectual ability, centaurs are also known for their skill as healers and this core is very good for healing charms.
Chimera Scale Fragment - HPC Although chimera scales are magically powerful, they are extremely rare in modern wandcraft. This is not out of any concern for safety, as they are generally considered no more stubborn than hippogriff feathers, and are more stable than Erumpent hide. The fact of the matter is that there are more recorded basilisk slayings in the past fifty years than there are chimera slayings in all of recorded history. This one slaying occurred in Greece over two millenia ago, so what scales were harvested at that time have been degraded, broken, and dispersed.
Today, they are only found as parts of heirloom cores, and even then, all such cores are a more common core (often dragon heartstring) with a tiny fragment of scale embedded. Chimera wands are most common in Greece and the Balkans, although as they were circulated through the Mediterranean and former Roman Empire they are found throughout Europe. These wands are prized for their raw power, although they are difficult to control.
Crup Hair - SC This core is good for counter curses, and spells to speed something up. This core prefers someone who is constantly in motion, someone who is strong, and/or someone who never gives up easily.
Demiguise Hair - HPC Demiguise hairs were long considered to not have enough oomph to make a proper wand, but with the advent of multiple cores they have gained favor for their strength in Transfiguration and the subtle arts. When combined with a stronger wand core they make potent wands, however, on their own they can be rather one-dimensional and difficult to use for anything but Transfiguration. They have found favor in students of all Houses, although they may be slightly rarer among the open Hufflepuffs.
Doxy Wing - HPC Doxy wings, like the creatures they come from, can be unmanageable and mean-spirited. They are second only to basilisk wands in their abilities with the Dark Arts, and as such these rare wands are most often found in the hands of stubborn Slytherins without the familial connection to obtain a basilisk core.
Dragon Heartstring - HPC A creature of legend, the dragon symbolizes wisdom and longevity. The dragon is fierce and strong, and would make a ferocious enemy or marvelous friend. The heartstring of a dragon would be a wise choice for one who wishes to cast extraordinary hexes or defensive spells. Would also make an excellent companion to woods that feed off the element of fire. This is also a very good core to have since it makes learning spells much easier.
Erkling Vocal Chord - SC Mischievous and evil creatures native to Germany who lure children with their cackling laughter into the woods and eat them. Core is best suited for those who are practical jokers with a bit of a mean streak.
Erumpent Hide - HPC There is a very good reason this is an exotic - Erumpent hide wands are extremely dangerous, and don't take well to high levels of magic or sharp impacts. They may add a 'punch' to spells when combined with a gentler core, but most wandmakers refuse to work with it completely due to the danger it poses to maker and wielder.
Fairy Hair - SC Lending beauty and softness to both the owner and the spells cast. Wonderful in working with magical decorating or landscaping
Fairy Wing - HPC This core makes for a light, airy wand, and is the absolute best for Charms. They also signify a connection to the mystic, so these wands, despite their relative rarity, are used by nearly half of known witches and wizards with the Sight. Despite their astounding strength in Charms, they are merely average in Defense Against the Dark Arts and Transfiguration, and will often fail at hexes altogether. As such, they’re not commonly found in Slytherin House, but are common in Hufflepuff. Ravenclaws and Gryffindors may be drawn to this core, although they tend to react better to blends of fairy wings and unicorn hair.
Fwooper Feather - HPC Fwooper feather wands are said to be a mark of ill omen for the wizards they bond to, as, like the birds they come from, they are rumored to slowly drive their wielder mad. Despite their poor reputation, they do well with Charms and Care of Magical Creatures. However, they have a near-inability to cast Quietus. They are commonly combined with another feather core, such as the phoenix for health or the hippogriff for stability.
Griffin Claw - SC A majestic creature of enormous strength, the griffin is consider to be king of beasts and birds; it possesses the bravery of a lion and the dexterity of an eagle. They are often known to guard vast treasures. A griffins claw is a wise choice for one who wishes to cast powerful defensive spells, charms or hexes. It would make an excellent companion to woods that draw off the elements of air and earth.
Hippocampus Scale - SC Good with water-related spells, and can perform spells to destroy evil underwater creatures. It makes a good wand for care of animals and gardening work, as it is harmonious with almost all un-human creatures.
Hippogriff Feather - HPC Hippogriffs are noble animals with a reputation for not taking a slight. These wands require constant respect, and if the wielder does not give it, they can watch its formerly stable and versatile magic backfire on it. It is not the strongest core, but it is one of the most adaptable. These wands are most common amongst Gryffindors, but they are rare overall.
Jarvey Whisker - SC A valuable wand core, the Jarvey whisker is good at all simple spells and many advanced ones. It is most effective when used to bewitch an object or an animal, but is also used to organize things and to clean dishes.
Jobberknoll Feather - SC Jobberknoll feathers are good wand cores for charms, advancing along with its owner through time. It is also used in simple cooking spells and transfiguration.
Kelpie Mane - HPC Kelpie hairs are incredibly temperamental cores, explaining their rarity. They were once common in Celtic wandmaking, however, the import of demiguise hairs has resulted in them falling out of favor. They have similar qualities to demiguise hair, and are powerful Transfiguration cores when they don't backfire spectacularly.
Kneazle Whisker - SC Related to cats, Kneazles are fairly common pets with some magical traits. A Kneazle whisker core makes a wand with its own mind, much like Phoenix feather. However, the range of magic it can perform is much more limited, and generally not as powerful. As with its creature counterpart, it can turn more aggressive towards certain individuals without reason. This, combined with its independent nature, makes it too hazardous for many.
Lacewing Fly Wing - SC A key ingredient in polyjuice potion. Great for transfiguration.
Manticore Fur - SCr The manticore is an intelligent yet ferocious creature. With the brave heart of a lion and the cunning head of a human, the manticore is not a beast to be trifled with. A manticore hair would be a wise choice for one who wishes to cast dangerous hexes or miraculous charms. It would make an excellent companion to woods that draw of the element of earth.
Phoenix Feather - HPC The Phoenix Feather helps a wizard learn the most varied magic. This core, however, is very hard to be chosen. The phoenix is a sacred creature born of earth and fire. Perhaps one of the most ancient of firebirds, the phoenix is also one of the most magical creatures, also thought to possess healing powers through its tears. The tail feather of a phoenix would be a wise choice for one who wishes to cast protection spells or lasting charms. It would make an excellent companion to woods that draw from the element of fire and water.
Pogrebin Hair - SC Pogrebin hairs carry lots of power and are good for work with transfiguration and work with the earth element. They are effective in most advanced spells, but are best when in used in the dark arts.
Salamander Blood - SC The blood has incredible healing properties and therefore the core is a favorite of magical healers of both wizards and creatures.
Selkie Whisker - SC Particularly useful when working with the element of water in any form. Given the selkie's gift of transfiguration, this wand core is favored by animagi.
Serpent Scale - SC The serpent is a mystical creature often misrepresented in literature. Dangerous and stealthy, the serpent was summoned to guard and defend ancient temples or places of power. They have the power to heal, poison or provide expanded consciousness, which would make a wise choice for one who wishes to brew potions or cast defensive spells. A serpent scale would make an excellent companion to woods that draw off the element of earth and water.
Sphinx Mane - SC Intelligent, protective and speaking only in riddles are the known traits of this beast. Core will gravitate to those of great sound metal ability and the ability to think under pressure.
Thestral Hair - Sc This is considered a tricky substance that can only be mastered by the witch or wizard capable of facing death. It is very powerful. Due to their strength/rarity, these cores will be limited and are unable to be used by student characters.
Unicorn Hair - HPC This core means more consistent results as well as bonds very well to the first user of the wand. The unicorn is a creature of mystery and beauty. Gentle yet powerful, ancient yet pure, a strand of its hair is a wise choice for one who wishes to cast healing and protection spells. It has long been thought that unicorns protected the forest creatures, nurturing and overseeing plants, flowers, and trees. This core would make an excellent companion to woods that draw from the element of earth.
Vampire Blood - SC Creatures of the night who continue their life by sucking it out of others. Core gravitates to those who are adept at the dark arts and love being out and up all night.
Veela Hair - HPC Veela Hair is not used by many wand makers because they believe that a wand with this core is "temperamental" and difficult to master. Veela hair wands are not currently made by anyone. They can be passed down through Veela lines, however. As such, these wands are only currently usable by those who possess a Veela bloodline. This is here for reference.
Additional Cores The following cores don't have descriptions yet but have been approved as canon. Be aware if you choose one of these and the description doesn't work for your character, that isn't our problem, and no attempt will be made to match these to their existing characters. For that reason, we encourage you to choose one of the wands above.
-Troll Whisker
-Aethonan feather
-White River Monster Spine (American only, inherited wands only)
-Rougarou hair (American only, tends towards dark magic)
-Thunderbird feather (similar to phoenix feather, American only)
-Wampus cat hair (American only)
