The wand of Seamus Finnigan was of an unknown length, wood and core material.[1]


Like most British and Irish wizards and witches, he most likely purchased it at age eleven at Ollivanders.

During his first year at Hogwarts, Seamus and his fellow students were taught the Levitation Charm by Professor Flitwick in Charms, and were given feathers to practise on. Seamus accidentally set his feather on fire when he poked it with his wand, resulting in the feather combusting and requiring Harry to put it out with his hat.[1] Also during Seamus' first year, he was known to have been trying to turn water into rum with disastrous results.[2]

In his third year, Seamus mastered the Boggart-Banishing Spell in Defence Against the Dark Arts with his wand.[3]

During his fifth year, Seamus managed to produce a non-corporeal Patronus in a Dumbledore's Army meeting in the Room of Requirement.[4]

During his sixth year, while eagerly telling his fellow students in Charms class about what he would do once he had learned how to Apparate, Seamus accidentally shot a jet of water from his wand that knocked Professor Flitwick on his face. As punishment, Flitwick set Seamus lines in detention, with him being made to write "I am a wizard, not a baboon brandishing a stick."[5]

During the Battle of Hogwarts he successfully cast his fox patronus against approaching Dementors helping to protect Harry Potter.[6]
