This wand belonged to Percival Graves. It was made from ebony wood[3], and had an unknown flexibility and length. Though, as it is inlaid with mother-of-pearl, we might deduce that its core is Wampus cat hair, as is with all Johannes Jonker wands.

Behind the scenes

  • This wand will appear in the film adaptations of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Its design was modelled on "an antique conductor's wand".[4]
  • In the book The Case of Beasts: Explore the Film Wizardry of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the entry for Graves's wand reads, "Graves' wand was fairly straightforward in the sense it was all ebony, but dividing the main tip and the handle was a silver band, again in a very simple deco style, and with a rear tip, almost like a walking stick."[3] It is similar to Lucius Malfoy's wand in this regards.
  • On the information for the replica of Percival Graves's wand on the website Film Jackets, it lists the wand's length as "15 inches long".[5] The Noble Collection lists the wand replica's length as "around 14 inches long". On Pottermore, Garrick Ollivander notes that wands of 15" or longer ("very long") are "exceptionally rare". Ollivander also states, "In my experience, longer wands might suit taller wizards, but they tend to be drawn to bigger personalities, and those of a more spacious and dramatic style of magic. Neater wands favour more elegant and refined spell-casting...Most wands will be in the range of between nine and fourteen inches. While I have sold extremely short wands (eight inches and under) and very long wands (over fifteen inches), these are exceptionally rare."[6]
