Curiosities

  • Burkina Faso is a small country in western Africa. It has its own Ministry of Magic, and the Runespoor is native to this country. Gilderoy Lockhart supposedly stopped a series of attacks in its capital Ouagadougou.
  • Egypt is the earliest place where magic is recorded. It was integrated into society and wizards were held in esteem. Egyptian wizards put curses on Tombs, which Curse Breakers for Gringotts try to break. Ron Weasley's brother, Bill worked there as a Curse Breaker for Gringotts Bank before taking a desk job in London. The Weasley family visited him while he was there, and toured the Pyramids. Phoenixes and Sphinxes are native to Egypt. Hassan Mostafa, the referee for the final of the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, was from Egypt. That is also where Scabbers was photographed for a newspaper on that same tour, leading to Sirius Black's escape, and upon learning of the escape he begins to look ill.
