ZZ Ninja Kid: The Wand chooses the Wizard – Ollivanders, Diagon Alley
The Wand Chooses the Wizard …..
One of the most important moments in a young wizards life is when Mr Ollivander helps you find “your” wand.
We visited Ollivander’s Wand Shop in Diagon Alley and ZZ was lucky enough to be chosen by Mr Ollivander himself to demonstrate the process of how a wand choses the wizard.
ZZ tried several wands that weren’t suitable but the moment Mr Ollivander handed him a 15″ Ash wand with Phoenix feather he knew it was ZZ’s perfect wand.
According to Mr Ollivander the properties of ZZ’s wand are:
Length: 15″ (38cm). “Longer wands tend to be drawn to bigger personalities”
Ash Wood: “Wands made from Ash are especially productive as Ash trees are known to attract energy. Ash people are kind and generous with a gift for seeing what is beautiful in the world and in others. Ash people should be careful that their romantic hearts do not lead them into danger.The ash wand cleaves to its one true master and ought not to be passed on or gifted from the original owner, because it will lose power and skill. Those witches and wizards best suited to ash wands are not, in my experience, lightly swayed from their beliefs or purposes. However, the brash or over-confident witch or wizard, who often insists on trying wands of this prestigious wood, will be disappointed by its effects. The ideal owner may be stubborn, and will certainly be courageous, but never crass or arrogant”.
Core – Phoenix: “This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.”
ZZ has named his wand … Thunder !!!
