40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Bellatrix Had a Dragon Heartstring Wand
Every skilled witch needs a worthy wand. Bellatrix’s had a dragon heartstring as its core, just like the wands of Hermione Granger, Peter Pettigrew, and Gilderoy Lockhart. Apparently, having a dragon heartstring core makes you more likely to pick up spells quickly. That’s certainly true of Hermione, and it’s probably true of Bellatrix as well.
It’s less clear whether Peter or Gilderoy had that particular ability, given their somewhat limited skills with magic. Apparently, people with dragon heartstring wands are also more likely to turn to the dark arts. Bellatrix is certainly evidence for that particular point, as is Peter Pettigrew.
