Manufacturer

Phoenix

Usage
  • To keep the bird warm
  • Used as a wand core
  • As a warning sign
Owners

Phoenix feathers are feathers shed by phoenixes, primarily gathered and used in wandmaking.

Wandlore

This is one of the rarest core types. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn hair or dragon heartstring cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike.[1]

Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.[1]

Known users

In Ollivanders Wand Shop, the owner Garrick Ollivander, is known to use phoenix feathers as one of his three cores; the others being dragon heartstring and unicorn hair.

Known wands

DaindomAdded by Daindom

Harry Potter's and Tom Riddle's wand cores came from the same phoenix: Fawkes, who belonged to Albus Dumbledore; these two wands are brothers. Therefore, they have a certain connection and may produce unusual magical effects when forced to duel one another, a phenomenon known as Priori Incantatem. Riddle, better known as Voldemort, kidnapped Ollivander, the wand maker, for information on this situation and how to overcome it. Ollivander told him that a different wand may work against Harry, but Harry destroyed the "borrowed" wand when Lord Voldemort chased him when Harry was being moved.

Before Harry acquiring his holly and phoenix feather wand in 1991, Ollivander had showed another wand of phoenix feather, made of maple for trying to Harry Potter in 1991.

Known donors

Phoenix
Fawkes donated two feathers.
Mistress RemyAdded by Mistress Remy

The only phoenix known to have donated his feathers to make a wand was Fawkes, Albus Dumbledore's magical bird. He only gave two feathers, one to Harry Potter's wand, and one to Tom Riddle's wand. [2]

There was at least one other phoenix who donated its feather to Ollivander as shown in the maple wand Ollivander showed Harry in 1991. Who this phoenix was and how its feather was attained is unknown.

Other uses

In 1995, Fawkes leaved his feathers behind in bursts of flames as messages for the members of the Order of the Phoenix.
