Blood increases strength of drinker
|Ministry of Magic Classification||
The Re'em is native to the wilds of North America and the Far East. The Re'em is extremely rare, resembling giant oxen with a golden hide. Re'em blood gives immense strength to the drinker for a limited time. However, since demand far exceeds supply, and obtaining the blood in the first place is extremely difficult, it can rarely be found on the open market.
Behind the scenes
- In the Spanish version of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, "Re'em" is translated by "Uro" (Spanish for "aurochs").
- The creature Re'em is often described as a form of unicorn or giant horse whose blood was rare. The beast itself and its blood are mentioned in the Bible.
