A part elf was, presumably, an individual with both human and house-elf ancestry.

In the 1990s, some Ravenclaw students, including Robert Hilliard, speculated that Filius Flitwick was part elf because of his stature, although they never asked him about it.[1] In fact, he was part-goblin.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • No real part elves have been shown in canon. As such, it is unknown if they actually exist within the Harry Potter universe.
  • It is also unknown if they would inherit the special form of elf magic from their non-human ancestor.
