"My moste wicked and subtle friend, with bodie of Ellhorn, who knowes ways of magick moste evile."
—An entry on Godelot's notebook regarding the Elder Wand[src]

Godelot was a medieval dark wizard who once owned the Elder Wand.[2] Described as an "unpleasant character", Godelot considered the Elder Wand to be an instructor, and used his knowledge of the wand's powers to write Magick Moste Evile, a book that contained information on dark magic. Godelot perished in his own cellar, after he was locked in by his son, Hereward, who did this to gain ownership of the Elder Wand.[3]
