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

Description

The Graphorn was large and hump-backed, with grayish-purple skin tougher than that of dragons. It could repel most spells, had two golden horns, and walked on large four-thumbed feet. It's mouth was made of tentacle-like appendages, that were used to grab food and put it in it's mouth. It also used these to show affection. It was said to resemble a sabre-tooth tiger.[1]

History

Graphorn-FB-film

Graphorns in the Newt Scamander's suitcase.

Newton Scamander had the last pair of breeding Graphorns, along with young Graphorns, in his suitcase during his visit to New York in 1926.[2]

Mountain Trolls were reported to be riding Graphorns through Hungary in 2020.[3]

Uses

Its horn was a highly prized potion ingredient, used in potions like the Antidote to Uncommon Poisons.[4] Graphorns were sometimes used as mounts by Mountain Trolls, but the Graphorn did not like it - it was more common to see mountain trolls covered in scars from a Graphorn.

In the Study of Ancient Runes, the Graphorn's two sharp horns were used to represent the number two.[5]
