History information

Garrick Ollivander (possibly)[1]


Sirius Black


Sirius Black

The wand of Sirius Black was of unknown wood, an unknown core material, and an unknown length.


Like most wizards and witches in Great Britain, he likely purchased it at the age of eleven before beginning at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1971.

He was also able to perform powerful magic with this wand, such as casting nonverbal spells. The wand probably died with him as he held it when he fell to his death through the Veil in the Death Chamber .

Behind the scenes

  • Sirius presumably lost his wand when he went to Azkaban. It is unknown how, or if, he retrieved it, because he could have had another one given to him after his escape. However, any member of the Order of the Phoenix who worked at the Ministry, such as Kingsley Shacklebolt , could have retrieved his original wand for him.
  • The wand has a distinctive handle, being square-like in shape. Symbols are etched upon it. Some of them look slightly similar to the ones tatooed on Sirius' body.
  • This wand bears a resemblance to Sybill Trelawney's wand, though there are slight differences.
  • Although it is unknown what happened to the wand after Sirius's death in the books, in the film adaption of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the wand appears to break when Bellatrix kills Sirius.
  • Just like Voldemort's wand, the Noble Collection makes Sirius's wand of a different colour than in the film adaptions, the wand has a light brown colour when it's shown in the film adaption of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and in the Noble Collection it has a dark grey colour.
