A half-Veela is a cross-breed between a human (normally a wizard or witch) and a Veela.[2] It is unknown if Veela can breed with Muggles, and it is unlikely that a Muggle would ever learn of their existence, thus most or all half-Veela will inherit magical ability from their human parent.

Inheritance of Veela abilities

Fleur Delacour, a part-Veela

From their Veela parent, they gain some Veela traits, such as breathtaking beauty and the ability to entrance men magically.[1] It is unknown if half-Veela are able to shape-shift into bird-like creatures as full Veela can.[3]

Prejudice

Because they are half-breeds, half-Veela may experience the same prejudices that befall other half-breeds, though they are more difficult to detect than other half-breeds, such as Half-giants, because apart from their great physical beauty, they are otherwise identical to humans.

Gender

The only known male with Veela ancestry is Louis Weasley, who was one-eighth Veela through his mother.[2]
