In the ''[[The Tale of the Three Brothers]]'', the Peverell brothers are described as having received the Hallows from [[Death (The Tale of the Three Brothers)|Death]] himself, after using their magical talents to cross a treacherous river that would have assuredly killed them otherwise, and Antioch, for his prize, asked for "a wand more powerful than any other in existence: a wand that must always win duels for its owner, a wand worthy of a wizard who had conquered [[Death]]!" and so [[Death (The Tale of the Three Brothers)|Death]] crossed to an elder tree on the banks of the river, made a wand from a branch, and gave it to Antioch.

Later, the three brothers separated. Antioch travelled towards a distant village, and met a wizard with whom he had a quarrel. With the [[Elder Wand]] as his weapon, Antioch easily won the [[duel]] that followed. Leaving his enemy dead, Antioch lodged in an inn to celebrate, where he boasted loudly of the powerful [[wand]] he had snatched "''from [[Death]] himself''", and of how it made him invincible. That night, as Antioch slept, [[Antioch Peverell's killer|another wizard]] crept upon him, stole the wand, and slit his throat.
