The Magic Wands are magical tools predominantly used by witches to channel magical energy and perform magic. They are part of the basic equipment of a witch and her male counterparter wizard.


Magic Wands can come in different designs and shapes, but they all share the same function: To channel the magic energy from the Ley Lines through the Sorcerer's Stone and in turn, allowing its user to perform magical feats. This is mainly done by using verbal spells, however, it is possible to perform magic without them. While the energy they can handle within their batteries is limited, using a source like the Sorcerer's Stone allows the magic to be used freely.

Magic wands are the main means by which witches perform their magic but there are also other objects such as the Shiny Rod and potions that also allow the use of magic.

While Magic Wands are primarily used by witches, it is not exclusive to them. Their male counterparts, Wizards, also use wands to cast magic, though this only implied and has yet to be confirmed until this point.

Wand Accessory

To improve its functionality on certain situations, the user can attach following attachments on his/her wand for such purpose:

# Name Description Image
1. Floating Brush Thick brush attachment which emits anti-gravity field which enables the user to float or slow his/her descent while falling. As demonstrated by Diana, three wands that each attached with a floating brush can be combined into a flying broom in emergency situations.
2. Stocks Resembling standard gun stock, this attachment allows a caster to aim his/her wand like a rifle and increase her precision in firing spells. Also has a built-in laser sight to increase accuracy further.

Note: Only featured as a joke in The Enchanted Parade movie.

3. Enchanted Swatter A fly swatter head which turns a wand that attached with it into magical fly swatter capable of effectively squashing magical insects and breaking their enchantments at the same time such as cupid bees. Requires either Weapon-Wand Fusion Powder or Weapon-Wand Fusion Spell to bring out the attachment's full potential. Enchanted Swatter LWA.jpg

  • The design of Cavendish family's standard and child wands (being wooden rods with snake-like handle that wraps around it) is a reference to the Rod of Asclepius, from Greek mithology, which is a serpent-entwined rod wielded by the Greek god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicine. This is quite fitting given to the magical family in question being magical healers during their time.
