Hazel&Sycamore____from pottermore


A sensitive wand, hazel often reflects its owner’semotional state, and works best for a master who understands and can managetheir own feelings. Others should be very careful handling a hazel wand if itsowner has recently lost their temper, or suffered a serious disappointment,because the wand will absorb such energy and discharge it unpredictably. Thepositive aspect of a hazel wand more than makes up for such minor discomforts,however, for it is capable of outstanding magic in the hands of the skillful,and is so devoted to its owner that it often ‘wilts’ (which is to say, itexpels all its magic and refuses to perform, often necessitating the extractionof the core and its insertion into another casing, if the wand is stillrequired) at the end of its master’s life (if the core is unicorn hair,however, there is no hope; the wand will almost certainly have ‘died’). Hazelwands also have the unique ability to detect water underground, and will emitsilvery, tear-shaped puffs of smoke if passing over concealed springs andwells. 






The sycamore makes a questing wand, eager for newexperience and losing brilliance if engaged in mundane activities. It is aquirk of these handsome wands that they may combust if allowed to become‘bored,’ and many witches and wizards, settling down into middle age, aredisconcerted to find their trusty wand bursting into flame in their hand asthey ask it, one more time, to fetch theirslippers. As may be deduced, the sycamore’s ideal owner is curious, vital andadventurous, and when paired with such an owner, it demonstrates a capacity tolearn and adapt that earns it a rightful place among the world's mosthighly-prized wand woods.
