Deer is the common name for a family of ruminant animals grouped by the fact that the males grow antlers in adulthood. Male deer are called stags, whereas females are does.

The deer was a reoccurring Patronus within the Potter family, with James Potter, his wife Lily, and his son Harry all have deer for Patronuses. Severus Snape, as a sign of his undying affection for Lily, also had a doe for a Patronus, which persisted long after her death. In 1998, he cast this Patronus as a guide to lead Harry Potter to Godric Gryffindor's Sword hidden within a frozen lake of the Forest of Dean.
