|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
When Severus Snape substituted for Remus Lupin for a short while in teaching Defence Against the Dark Arts during the 1993–1994 school year, he claimed that Kappas were primarily found in Mongolia. However, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them states that Kappas were from Japan, a fact Harry Potter made note of in his copy of the book.
A delegate from Mongolia was a member of the International Confederation of Wizards, and participated in the meeting held at the Magical Congress of the United States of America on 6 December 1926.
Behind the scenes
In discussing the scene from the film inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in the Pentagram Office, Colin Farrell praised Colleen Atwood's costuming: "There must have been two hundred actors and extras all in the different costumes. Wizards from Hungary, from Mongolia, from Russia, from Thailand, from Ireland, and from Pakistan. It was amazing. They all had culturally relevant garb but with a little wizarding flourish."
