A new wand for a new year at Hogwarts

Wood type: holly
Length: 10½ inches
Core: Unicorn Hair

get your own wand!

I have to admit, I never liked my old wand. It was old and a hand-me-down. So, just in time for HSKS 6, I leapt at the chance to visit Diagon Alley for a new wand of my own.

According to Mr. Ollivander, my wand is made of holly which "tends to pick an owner who's brave and pure of heart, not to mention has a high intelligence." And holly wand owners are generally "determined." Well, so far so good. The core is made of unicorn hair (I'd like to see who gets that job!) which is for "those with pure intentions."

Thanks, Mr. O! I'll be sure to bring it to the Halloween Ball.
