"They say he met vampires in the Black Forest, and there was a nasty bit o' trouble with a hag -- never been the same since. Scared of the students, scared of his own subject now, where's me umbrella?" Vampires? Hags? Harry's head was swimming."
—Hagrid explains Quirrell's fear of hags.[src]

A hag is a savage beast that looks like an ugly, old witch but has more warts.[4] They possess rudimentary magic, similar to that of a troll.[5] Little is known of them, though it is thought that they are what Muggles think are Witches and are therefore popular in Muggle literature.


Ministry classification

The Ministry of Magic classifies hags as beings, a fact that causes centaurs and merpeople to desire the classification of beast.[3]

Known hags[2]


Hags can occasionally be encountered in Diagon and Knockturn Alleys, as well as Hogsmeade[8]; however, some hags like Annis Black live in caves.[2]


Hags eat children[2] and raw liver are part of their diets.[8]


From hægtesse, meaning witch.
