Like the norm for most wizards and witches in Britain, it is likely that Tonks purchased her wand, from Garrick Ollivander, at the age of eleven before beginning her education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1984. Using her wand, she secured good enough marks in her OW.L. and N.E.W.T. exams to become an Auror, starting her training when she left Hogwarts in 1991.
Tonks underwent three years of Auror training, naturally exceeding in the Concealment and Disguise portion of the course because of her Metamorphic abilities, and became an official Auror in 1994. It is presumed that she used her wand during the training.
In 1995, Tonks joined the reconstructed Order of the Phoenix, and was part of the Advanced Guard sent to rescue Harry Potter from the Dursleys'. She befriended Harry immediately and cast a Pack and Locomotor charm on his belongings to help him prepare for the journey to 12 Grimmauld Place.
Here, she revealed that she was not very good with household charms.
In the June of 1996, Tonks participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, where she shot a Stunning Spell at Lucius Malfoy and duelled with her aunt, Bellatrix Lestrange. Although she put up a good fight, Tonks was overpowered by Bellatrix and therefore sent to St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.
Later in the same month, Tonks took part in the Battle of the Seven Potters, where she duelled Bellatrix Lestrange again, this time in mid-air. Bellatrix was determined to kill her, however, Tonks held her off and also seriously injured her husband, Rodolphus Lestrange.
1998In the May of 1998, Tonks participated in the Battle of Hogwarts, where she was seen firing spells out of one of the Castle's windows.
She later perished at the hands of Bellatrix Lestrange. If the cause of her death was due to another duel between the two of them or not remains unknown.
It is not known what happened to Tonks' wand after her death, although it is possible that it was laid to rest alongside her in her grave.
