"Curious indeed how these things happen. The wand chooses the wizard, remember... I think we must expect great things from you, Mr Potter... After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things — terrible, yes, but great."
— Ollivander's interest in what powerful wizards can do with wands[src]

Garrick Ollivander (b. 25 September[1] pre-1909)[2] was a half-blood[1] wizard who was the proprietor of Ollivanders in Diagon Alley during most of the 20th century. Ollivander was widely considered the best wandmaker in the world, and many wizards and witches bought their wands from him.

In 1996, Ollivander was captured and tortured by Lord Voldemort. He was rescued in 1998 by Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Dobby. After he was rescued, he imparted important information regarding wandlore to Harry, helping Harry in his understanding of the Deathly Hallows.


Early life[]

Garrick Ollivander was born to Gervaise Ollivander,[11] a wizard, and his wife, a Muggle-born witch,[1] on the 25 September,[1] in or before the year 1909.[2]

The Ollivander family had long been associated with the profession of wandcraft. The surname means 'he who owns the olive wand' which is of Mediterranean origin, suggesting that the family emigrated to Britain from elsewhere, probably arriving in Britain with the Romans and set up a shop, to sell wands that were superior to the unreliable, poorly constructed ones fashioned by British wizards at the time.[12]

Garrick Ollivander attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in his youth, where he was Sorted into Ravenclaw House.[1] He became a fan of the opera diva Zenith Xeep and followed her career ever since he was "a lad".[13]

Career as a wandmaker[]

"Renowned wandmaker Mr Ollivander owns the wand shop Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Wands Since 382 BC in Diagon Alley. His shop is widely considered the best place to purchase a wand."
— Description[src]

Ollivander grew up in the family business and showed precocious talent in wandmaking. Soon, he developed an ambition to improve upon the cores and wand woods he made and developed a determination to pursue the ideal wand.[12]

Before Garrick Ollivander's proprietorship of Ollivanders, wizards used a wide variety of wand cores; the customer would often present their wandmaker with a magical substance to which they were attached, and he would turn it into their wand core.[12] Mr Ollivander believed that doing so altered the wand's temperament,[14] and he revolutionised the way wands were crafted by having cores of immensely powerful magical substances expertly enclosed in specially selected and complementary wand woods, with the result being that the wand would be matched to an owner that the wand itself felt an affinity for.[12]


Ollivander talking with a customer

While there was initially substantial resistance to this new way wands were made, it soon became clear that wands made by Ollivander were far superior to any others. His methods of locating wand woods and core substances, marrying them together, and matching them to ideal owners were all jealously guarded secrets that were coveted by rival wandmakers.[12]

As with other wandmakers, Ollivander made it his business to study the mystifying Elder Wand in depth, such as its history and distinctive characteristics. Unlike Hermione Granger, he believed that the Elder Wand was not a myth or tale, and showed great enthusiasm with the powerful object despite the fact that it was dangerous and has had a bloody history. When held captive by Lord Voldemort, he was forced to relate all information he had known about the powerful wand. He also revealed that the last person rumoured to own the wand was Gregorovitch, a foreign wandmaker, though he did not believe the rumour and thought that Gregorovitch spread it to boost his business.[10]

Sometime into his career, in the summer of 1938, Ollivander sold Tom Riddle his wand.[5]

1984–1985 school year[]

Shortly before the 1984–1985 school year, Ollivander sold a wand to Jacob's sibling, just as he did with Jacob before them.[15]

1986–1987 school year[]

During the 1986–1987 school year, Minister for Magic Millicent Bagnold visited Ollivander in his shop to have her wand repaired. However, as she was busy, she did not want him to take time testing her wand, as she trusted his judgement.[16]

1988–1989 school year[]

During the 1988–1989 school year, Mundungus Fletcher visited Ollivander and asked about the wand of an opponent whom he had lost a duel to. Ollivander couldn't tell much because of the lack of the real wand, and advised him to go see Madam Villanelle for his questions of the way his opponent had shouted incantations. Shortly afterwards, Jacob's sibling and a friend visited him to find out about Fletcher, and he told them about the previous encounter with him.[17]

After Patricia Rakepick broke Jacob's sibling's wand, they went to Ollivanders to purchase a second wand.[18]

1989–1990 school year[]

At some point near the end of the 1989–1990 school year, Ollivander told Jacob's sibling and Jae Kim information of a dark witch who had been gathering information about Jacob's sibling and their wand (who turned out to be Verucca Buckthorn-Snyde).[19]

1990–1991 school year[]

During the 1990–1991 school year, Ollivander had a misfiring wand in his store. Jacob's sibling and Ben Copper came to investigate it as a part of the Ministry of Magic student programme, but Ollivander couldn't wait to meet Zenith Xeep in the Leaky Cauldron, where she was holding a Meet-and-Greet for her beauty-and-lifestyle company, Xeep. He had been using Xeep's Luscious Locks Solution for a week, and sometimes couldn't remember the existence of the misfiring wand at all, due to the memory-erasing properties of the solution.

After the Meet-and-Greet, they returned to Ollivanders, and Jacob's sibling and Ben reached the conclusion that the misfiring wand was fake, and that the real wand had been stolen.[13] After Jacob's sibling, Penny Haywood and Professor Snape successfully brewed a counter-serum for Xeep's Luscious Locks Solution, Jacob's sibling offered it to Ollivander, who drank it and said he felt marvellous.[20]

Ollivander was in the Leaky Cauldron one day when Jacob's sibling met their father Peregrine there.[21]

Harry Potter's wand[]

"Ah yes. Yes, yes. I thought I’d be seeing you soon. Harry Potter. You have your mother’s eyes. It seems only yesterday she was in here herself, buying her first wand. Ten and a quarter inches long, swishy, made of willow. Nice wand for charm work."
— Ollivander greeting Harry Potter for the first time in his shop[src]

Mr Ollivander presents Harry Potter with his first wand

Before the 1991–1992 school year, Ollivander supplied Harry Potter with a wand, and as he did so, he told Harry a few facts about wands. He explained that a wand has a core, in Harry's case a phoenix feather. He told Harry that the body of the wand is made from a choice of different woods with different magical properties.

Ollivander said he made a similar wand using another feather from the same phoenix, but using a different wood. Harry's wand is holly, which symbolises protection, rather than Voldemort's yew, which is symbolic of death. He also explained that the wand chooses the wizard, rather than the other way around.[5] Immediately after Harry left the shop, Ollivander sent a letter to Albus Dumbledore informing him of the wand's sale.[22]

1994–1995 Triwizard Tournament[]

"May I introduce Mr Ollivander? He will be checking your wands to ensure that they are in good condition before the tournament."
Wand weighing ceremony[src]

Ollivander in his wand shop talking to customers

On 13 November 1994, Ollivander presided over the Wand Weighing ceremony during the Triwizard Tournament at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[23] As a very recognised wandmaker, Ollivander was asked to inspect the wands of the champions in the 1994–1995 Triwizard Tournament before the competition started, to make sure they were all working properly. While he found no problems with any of the wands' performance, he expressed doubts of Mykew Gregorovitch's styling of Viktor Krum's wand and the use of Veela hair as a core in Fleur Delacour's wand.[14]

Second Wizarding War[]

Attempted robbery of his shop[]

In 1996, Alexandra Walker attempted to rob Ollivanders. She could not, however, and she was arrested. This event made Daily Prophet headlines.[24]

Kidnapped by Death Eaters[]

Arthur Weasley: "Shop's empty. No sign of a struggle. No one knows whether he left voluntarily or was kidnapped."
Ginny Weasley: "But what'll people do for wands?"
Remus Lupin: "They'll make do with other makers. But Ollivander was the best, and if the other side have got him it's not so good for us."
— News of the kidnappings of Ollivander and Florean Fortescue[src]
Fenrir greyback

Fenrir Greyback and other Death Eaters kidnap Ollivander from outside of his shop

In July 1996, Ollivander was kidnapped by Voldemort's Death Eaters, leaving behind an empty, locked up shop and no signs of a struggle.[25] It is believed that one of the last wands he sold was to Neville Longbottom, as he disappeared the next day.[26]

Ollivander was captured by Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters and was held prisoner at Malfoy Manor, where he was forced to make a new wand for Peter Pettigrew.[10] He was tortured by Lord Voldemort for information regarding the twin cores of Harry Potter's wand and his own. Ollivander told him that he merely needed to use a wand other than his own to face Harry Potter.[27]

After using Lucius Malfoy's wand and seeing its destruction when faced with Harry Potter and his Phoenix wand, Voldemort rounded on Ollivander for an explanation of why Harry's wand acted as it had. Although he had no answer to give since no wandmaker had ever witnessed such an event, Ollivander was tortured again by Lord Voldemort and questioned about the most powerful wand in existence, the Elder Wand.[10]

Skirmish at Malfoy Manor and escape[]

Ollivander and Luna are saved from Malfoy Manor by Dobby the House-Elf

Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Dean Thomas and Griphook, were later captured and taken to Malfoy Manor, where they were reunited with Mr Ollivander and Luna Lovegood. While in the cellar Harry noted that Ollivander was not looking well, due to being repeatedly tortured for a long period of time. Ollivander and the others were subsequently rescued by Dobby the House-Elf in the Skirmish.[28]

Ollivander seemed to have bonded with Luna during their captivity together, and thanked her for being "an inexpressible comfort [to him] in that terrible place".

Stay at Shell Cottage[]

"The wandmaker was lying on the twin bed farthest from the window. He had been held in the cellar for more than a year, and tortured, Harry knew, on at least one occasion. He was emaciated, the bones of his face sticking out sharply against the yellowish skin. His great silver eyes seemed vast in their sunken sockets. The hands that lay upon the blanket could have belonged to a skeleton"
— Description of Ollivander's appearance after his mistreatment in Malfoy Manor[src]
Mr Ollivander inside the Shell Cottage

Ollivander at Shell Cottage after being rescued from Malfoy Manor explaining about the Elder Wand to Harry Potter

Ollivander was taken to Shell Cottage, where he recovered from months of imprisonment and torture. While at Shell Cottage he was interrogated by Harry Potter who wanted to know information about the Elder Wand that Voldemort was so obsessively searching for and to have a better understanding of the unique connection that existed between his wand and Voldemort's.[10]

He later departed to Muriel's house, where he remained in hiding for the rest of the war.[29] He later crafted and sent a new wand to Luna Lovegood.[30]

21st century[]

Ollivander returned to his shop and business some time after the Second Wizarding War ended. Before September 2008,[31] he sold a wand to a new student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. When they entered the shop, he told them there was something familiar about them. The first wand he gave them didn't work for them, but they were chosen by his second wand which he thought was curious. Ivy Warrington also entered the shop and told Garrick her wand did not work properly. When he looked at it, he told her it was a wand with powerful wood and core combination in the right hand. He asked her demonstrate what she meant when she explained she couldn't do spells properly anymore. However, with help from the other student, Ivy's wand turned out to be okay. He also observed the student using their wand and told them he hadn't seen a young student take to their wand that quickly since someone else, likely a reference to Harry Potter.[32]

During the 2010s, Ollivander appeared as a Foundable during the Calamity. Volunteer members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force were able to free him, allowing Ollivander to return to his original time.[33]

Ollivander met with a member of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force pursuing a Professor career for a routine rebalancing of their wand. Ollivander instead taught them new methods to connect more completely to their wand, enabling them to do more damage in combat. Ollivander also met with a Calamity Investigator working for the task force and discussed wand craft with them. Ollivander was clearly able to articulate information about the wood, core, and building process for a variety of wands, but found himself unable to explain exactly how the magical component worked, leading the Calamity Investigator to wonder if anyone really could.[33]

Physical description[]

"An old man was standing before them, his wide, pale eyes shining like moons through the gloom of the shop."

Ollivander ProfileClearer

An elderly Garrick Ollivander in 1991

When first meeting him, Harry Potter described Garrick Ollivander as an old man with pale silvery eyes and white skin.[6][7] However, after he was kidnapped by Voldemort's Death Eaters, Ollivander's appearance changed for the worse as a result of the torture and maltreatment he suffered at the hands of Voldemort along with his two-year imprisonment in Malfoy Manor. By the time he was rescued, he became emaciated, with yellow skin, his facial bones sticking out, skeleton-like hands, and vast, sunken eyes.[10]

Personality and traits[]

"I remember every wand I’ve ever sold, Mr Potter. Every single wand. It so happens that the phoenix whose tail feather is in your wand, gave another feather — just one other. It is very curious indeed that you should be destined for this wand when its brother — why, its brother gave you that scar."
— Ollivander's excellent memory and deep knowledge of wands[src]

Ollivander and his many wands

Ollivander was an intelligent man, with a perfect memory when it came to his work; he remembered the details of every wand he ever sold. He seemed to become happier the more difficult the challenge to find exactly the right wand for a difficult customer was. He used a magical tape measure to help assess customers for their wand.[5]

Ollivander had a professorial enthusiasm for wandlore and was immensely learned in it. A less savoury aspect of his personality was that his fascination with wandlore sometimes eclipsed his sense of right and wrong; he was so fascinated with what a powerful wizard could do when matched with the right wand that he became detached from the good or evil nature of their actions.[5]

A prime example of this would be Tom Riddle, who became Lord Voldemort. Even after the First Wizarding War, Ollivander remembered him as having done "great things" with his wand — "terrible, yes, but great".[5] An even more extreme example was during the Second Wizarding War, when Ollivander, having just been rescued from a year of imprisonment and torture at Voldemort's hands, was briefly enthralled by the thought of what Voldemort might do when matched with the Elder Wand.[10]

However, Ollivander was not a malicious man and still valued his own life and well-being, and others and well, and divulged information to Voldemort whenever threatened with death and tortured by the Cruciatus Curse.[10] The wandmaker feared the Dark Lord's wrath and begged for mercy when informed that his (Ollivander's) advice about using another wand was incorrect.[10]

Magical abilities and skills[]

"'Avis!' The hornbeam wand let off a blast like a gun, and a number of small, twittering birds flew out of the end and through the open window into the watery sunlight."
— Ollivander performing the Bird-Conjuring Charm[src]
  • Wandmaking/Wandlore: Garrick Ollivander, just as other Ollivander family members, was considered as the best British wand-maker, and arguably the finest wandmaker in the world,[12] with an immense knowledge of wandlore. He was very knowledgeable of the different magical properties possessed by different wands, in particular relation to their woods and cores.[5][14][10]
  • Eidetic memory: Ollivander was able to recite the precise details of every wand he ever crafted or sold. This eidetic — or photographic — memory of these details borders on perfect recall, a very rare ability.[5]
  • Business: Ollivander also possessed excellent business skills, being highly able to successfully operate and manage his own wand shop for at least sixty years.[5]
  • Non-verbal magic: Ollivander had the ability to perform non-verbal spells, as no incantation was spoken by him when he produced silver smoke rings in 1994. Given the high level of difficulty required in the casting of spells non-verbally, this shows he was a wizard of very impressive magical skills.[14]
  • Transfiguration: He was highly skilled with conjuration, a highly difficult and complex branch of transfiguration, as he was able to successfully conjure flowers, birds, and wine in 1994.[14]
  • Charms: Ollivander was able to produce a non-corporeal Patronus Charm,[8][9] a mark of superior magical ability given the immense difficulty required in the casting of the spell. He was also proficient with the Knockback Jinx.[34]
  • Wand versatility: In 1994, Ollivander used Cedric's, Fleur's, Viktor's and Harry's wands, each with successful effect.[14]
  • Apparition: Like most accomplished adult wizards, he could Apparate, but failed in 1998 at Malfoy Manor due to enchantments placed on the cellar.[28]

Harry Potter, a good friend

Like most of the wizarding world, Ollivander heard of Harry Potter and his defeat of Lord Voldemort in 1981. He first met Harry in 1991 and sold him his wand. The phoenix feather in Harry's and Riddle's wands came from the same phoenix, Fawkes, something that Ollivander considered "curious". However, Harry was unsure whether he liked Ollivander due to the wandmaker's fascination by what Voldemort did with his wand, despite the terrible things he did with it.[5]

Ollivander's relationship with Harry Potter grew after the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor when Harry rescued him from imprisonment and during their subsequent stay at the Shell Cottage. Harry would go on to obtain vital information about the Elder Wand from Ollivander, which would later prove instrumental for bringing about the final defeat of Lord Voldemort. However, once again Harry was left uneasy with Ollivander's seeming fascination with what a Wizard such as Voldemort would be capable of with the Elder Wand.[10]

Luna Lovegood[]

Ollivander also developed a close relationship with Luna Lovegood, for she was a comfort to him during their imprisonment in Malfoy Manor.[28] Ollivander later repaid her kindness to him by creating a new wand for her.[10]

Lord Voldemort[]

"He tortured me, you must understand that! The Cruciatus Curse, I — I had no choice but to tell him what I knew, what I guessed — "
— Ollivander regarding how Voldemort tortured him to procure information about the Elder Wand[src]

Ollivander was very much afraid of Lord Voldemort, and referred to him as "You-Know-Who" like almost all other wizards. He was kidnapped by Death Eaters and tortured by Voldemort for information about Voldemort's wand's relationship with Harry's wand, which further developed his fear of the Dark Lord.[10] However, despite his intense fear and hatred of Voldemort, Ollivander was nevertheless fascinated by what Voldemort did both with his phoenix wand and the Elder Wand.[5]

Mykew Gregorovitch[]

Mykew Gregorovitch

Mykew Gregorovitch a fellow wandmaker

Not much is known about the relationship between Ollivander and his colleague Mykew Gregorovitch, however he explicitly stated that he found him a good wandmaker, even if he did not like the design of Gregorovich's creations. The two agreed on the properties of hawthorn wood although they disagreed on many other fronts. This implied that Ollivander was comparing his theories with Gregorovich or at least reading what his colleague published.

Under torture Ollivander revealed to Voldemort that there was once a rumour that Gregorovich possessed the Elder Wand, which resulted in Gregorovich's death at the hands of Voldemort. It is not known if Ollivander knew of his colleague's death, but if he found out it is likely that he would have felt guilty.
