Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  2. Though she can carry it with apparent ease, the fact that it extends undetectably may mean that it also becomes lightweight as if there was nothing in it.
  3. Underage students cannot perform magic unless in school, though it's possible that an exception can be made; this would also explain why, though in his first year Harry needed both the Weasley twins and himself to lift his trunk into the luggage racks, the other years he had no difficulty with it.
