Wood Nymphs are small creatures, possibly related to fairies and/or pixies. According to Fleur Delacour, they are used amongst the Christmas decorations at Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, where they sing to the students.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Given that nymphs are portrayed in Greek mythology as the protector spirits of their domains, it is possible that wood nymphs are merely another name for bowtruckles. However, in mythology, wood nymphs were typically known as dryads, which could also be another name for bowtruckles.
