Sirius Black's wand
History information

Sirius Black


Sirius Black

Sirius Black's wand's history is really confusing. Sirius was an Azkaban resident, so it was taken away from him. He most likely made his own because Ollivander most likely would've been afraid of him.


The wand is flat and smooth, with designs carved onto the side . A deep shade of black in most of its appearances. Based off of the recent release of the Celtic Calender and the correlation with wands, we can assume his wand is a Reed wand since he was born November 3rd. His wand is also sold at 15” while this might not be the canon length.

Theorizing that his wand was strong, since he was known as one of the best wizards in his year. We can assume it’s probably Dragon Heart String since he’s a very capable and strong wizard who probably wouldn’t have the patience for Phoenix Feather. And Unicorn hair would be too weak for him, considering they die quickly and have to be replaced.


Use at HogwartsEdit

The wand was not used often at Hogwarts, because Sirius was never there as an adult. When he was a kid, he used it to bully Severus Snape along with the rest of the Marauders. It was also used in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, where he later died.


The wand probably died with him when he was knocked into the Veil by his cousin, Bellatrix Lestrange.
