The Graphorn is a dangerous and aggressive magical creature, native to the mountains of Europe.

Physical appearance

The Graphorn is large and hump-backed, with grayish-purple skin tougher than that of dragons. It can repel most spells, has two golden horns, and walks on large four-thumbed feet.

History

Graphorn-FB-film

Newton Scamander had the the last pair of breeding Graphorns, along with young Graphorns, in his suitcase during his visit to New York in 1926.[1]

Mountain Trolls were reported to be riding Graphorns through Hungary in 2020.[2]

Uses

Graphorn

Its Horn is a highly prized potion ingredient, used in potions like the Antidote to Uncommon Poisons.[3] Graphorns are sometimes used as mounts by Mountain Trolls, but the Graphorn does not like it - it is more common to see mountain trolls covered in scars from a Graphorn.

In the Study of Ancient Runes, the Graphorn's two sharp horns are used to represent the number two.[4]
