Pure conjecture Edit
I removed the line:
- "...and its fragments are most likely contained in his pink umbrella. This is probably why Dudley Dursley received a pig's tail instead of being transfigured fully into a pig, as Hagrid had intended to do, after Hagrid pointed it at him on Harry Potter's eleventh birthday."
Since it seems to be pure conjecture lacking foundation.
- A) We do not have any indication that the umbrella-wand is NOT a replacement wand.
- B) Mere "fragments" would not work; if it is the same one that was snapped, it was fully repaired and then "dressed up" to look like an umbrella. Hagrid is not the only one to "dress" his wand as something else; Lucius Malfoy conceals his wand in his walking stick.
- C) There is absolutely no indication that Hagrid intended to perform a full-body transfiguration on Dudley. Indeed, Harry's trace might have detected "higher" magic or the ministry's reversal squads might have to get involved, or he simply never learned to perform anything more than minor transfigurations.
