The Valcore was a giant humanoid creature with a large head covered in blunt horns, thin arms, and thick legs.[1] It was presumably quite strong, as it was depicted as being capable of ripping a full-grown tree out of the ground and wielding it like a club, and probably also hostile, given its depiction of fighting against a human knight.[1]

This creature was covered in The Monster Book of Monsters.[1] It was thus part of the third-year Care of Magical Creatures curriculum at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]
