If Bellatrix Lestrange became the master of Nymphadora Tonks' wand before Molly Weasley kill her, why Antonin Dolohov didn't became the one of Remus Lupin's wand when he killed him? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by F.Halliwell (talk • contribs).
- That has now been removed from the Nymphadora Tonks' wand article. Basically, this is something we try to limit to known masters (or at least acknowledged as a possibly master in-universe). It's stated in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and some JKR interviews that most wands will maintain loyalty to their master even if defeated, unlike the Elder Wand. Now if it's shown that someone has actually taken and used the wand of someone they defeated, that would be different. - Nick O'Demus 18:44, November 20, 2013 (UTC)
