Characteristics

Pleasantly springy[1]

The wand of Cedric Diggory was twelve and a quarter inches long, made of ash wood, with a unicorn tail hair embedded within; it was described as being pleasantly springy[1].

Garrick Ollivander produced this wand sometime before 1977 by plucking a tail hair from the back end of a unicorn that was seventeen hands high; the unicorn turned and nearly gored him after the hair had been removed[1]. He later recounted this experience to the wand's owner during the Weighing of the Wands[1].

Cedric polished his wand nightly in order to remove fingerprints and dust, and to make his wand look more attractive[1]. This nightly routine was one that few other wizards partook in[1].

He used this wand to perform extraordinarily well in the 1994 Triwizard Tournament, coming in first place, and would have won the tournament thanks to his wand had it not been for his death[2]. Cedric's wand was last seen clutched to his chest when his body was returned to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and it is likely he was buried with it[2].
