Voldemort: "...I understand better now. I shall need, for instance, to borrow a wand from one of you before I go to kill Potter. No volunteers? Let’s see...Lucius, I see no reason for you to have a wand any more."
Lucius: "My Lord?"
Voldemort: "Your wand, Lucius. I require your wand."
Lord Voldemort to Lucius Malfoy in 1997[src]

This wand belonged to Lucius Malfoy, head of the pure blood Malfoy Family. Noticeably, the wand is concealed within Lucius Malfoy's snake-headed walking stick, an heirloom of the Malfoy Family. The wand fits into the walking stick like a sword into a scabbard. Lucius was in possession of his wand/walking stick for the majority of his life, but when he was sent to Azkaban his son was seen in possession of the walking stick (though it is doubtful he used his father's wand much, rather continuing to use his own). After Azkaban, Lucius regained his wand, but it was taken by Lord Voldemort in order to solve Voldemort's problem with his and Harry's wand sharing the same core. It was destroyed during the Battle of the Seven Potters in Voldemort's possession.

HistoryEdit

This wand was created over 1,000 years ago for an ancestor of the Malfoy family, possibly by an ancestor of the Ollivander family.

Lucius Malfoy carried this wand through much of his life. It is unknown if he carried a different wand earlier in his career as a wizard, though it seems likely he would have gone through at least one or two wands before acquiring this one. Concealed within the serpent-headed walking stick, it acted as much as a symbol of his status as the tool of a wizard.

Even when on missions after the return of Lord Voldemort, Lucius kept his wand within its walking stick. He carried it with him during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, and used it to duel members of the Order of the Phoenix.

After being discovered to be a Death Eater and arrested, Lucius lost possession of wand and walking stick heirloom temporarily. His son, Draco Malfoy, was shown to have taken ownership of the walking stick in his father's absence, though it is unknown whether Draco kept his father's wand in it or (most likely) just continued to use his own wand.

Argus Filch was distrusting of Draco taking the walking stick into Hogwarts Castle, suspecting it to be an artefact filled with Dark Magic. Severus Snape, Draco's sworn protector, allowed him safe passage into the castle and he took the stick with him into the castle.

After his release from Azkaban, Lucius regained ownership of his cane and wand.

DestructionEdit

Dobby4everAdded by Dobby4ever

The wand was taken from him by Lord Voldemort in 1997 since the Dark Lord wanted to prevent Priori Incantatem from occurring between his own wand and Harry Potter's wand. Harry's wand destroyed it during the Battle of the Seven Potters. It is noted that the Dark Lord only took Lucius' Wand, not the Cane nor the Head, which he ripped off.
