The rougarou was a dangerous dog-headed monster that inhabited swampy regions of Louisiana in the United States.[1] Its hair was used as a wand core by wandmaker Violetta Beauvais.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The rougarou is a creature that features in Cajun folklore.[2] It is a werewolf-like creature generally described as having the head of a dog and the body of a human.[2] Its name derives from loup-garou, the French word for "werewolf," which is itself derived from loup, "wolf," and garou, "man who turns into a beast."[2]
