28 Magical Facts about Dumbledore You Probably Haven’t Heard Before
His wand has a thestral hair core
Dumbledore wields the limitlessly powerful Elder Wand, a Deathly Hallow and present from Death itself. It only makes sense that the core of that wand is the hair of a thestral, the creatures that bring the carriages from the train to Hogwarts and can only be seen after witnessing a death firsthand. Dumbledore’s life has always been plagued by death and tragedy, so it seems fitting his wand would have a thestral hair core.
