Is it certain the cherubs in OotP were actually living creatures? I thought they were conjurations, or possibly animated by transfiguration magic like the Hogwarts gargoyles or suits of armor. - Nick O'Demus 09:41, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree. The cherubs in Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 25 are described as "golden," which leads me to believe they were statues. Starstuff (Owl me!) 04:15, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
