Magical Creatures from Harry Potter you would love to have

Updated on January 27, 2016

Care of Magical Creatures!

Close your eyes, Ron


How about having the eight eyed, dangerous, female wizard spider in your house? Capable of human speech, Aragog is carnivorous, untrainable and highly dangerous. Having said all of that Aragog can be really useful in protecting any treasures that needs guarding.

Aragog was Hagrid's pet when he was a student. If Hagrid could manage, I am sure even we can. Yes, I know, Hagrid's a giant. But am sure Hagrid's taught us enough to care for magical creatures.

Firenze in the forbidden Forest


Firenze, the handsome centuar would be someone you would want to keep in your house. Centuars are wild creatures who claim to possess intelligence greater than humans. Their heads and torsos resemble those of humans but they possess the four legs, lower bodies and tail of a horse.

Firenze was one of them who was appointed by Dumbledore to teach divination at Hogwarts. The blue eyed creature who had helped Harry in more than one occasion would definitely make a lovely pet.


Who doesn't remember the cute and adorable hipogriff, Buckbeak. The calm, powerful, sensitive, magical creature has been Harry's friend ever since the Prisoner of Azkaban. Right from saving Sirius Black to inheriting Buckbeak in Half Blood Prince, this creature has always been loyal.

Feeling like flying? Just bow low in front of this creature and he is going to take you flying across the sky, amidst the clouds, above the most beautiful sceneries you will have ever seen. Remember Harry's first meeting with Buckbeak? Beautiful, wasn't it?

Rising from the death!


Most of us would want to have Fawkes as our pet. After all you have got to see whose pet he was. Pet of Albus Dumbledore himself, this phoenix, a mythological bird is capable of rising from its ashes. Harry and Voldemort's wands contained the feathers of this beautiful bird. Fawkes' tears has healing powers. He was of great help to Harry in his fight against the basilisk in Chamber of Secrets.

During Dumbledore's funeral, Fawkes' is heard singing a lament which is soulful and sad. Similarly you wish Fawkes, singing to you in your times of distress. All your pain would vanish in a second.

"Phoenixes burst into flame when it is time for them to die and are reborn from the ashes"

— Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Best scenes of Fawkes


Finally we have our hero Harry's own pet, Hedwig. Hagrid presented Harry this white snowy owl on his eleventh birthday. Harry's only companion in 4, Privet Drive, Hedwig served as a perfect messenger, thus helping Harry to communicate with Ron and Hermionie. During his long and lonely stays at his uncle's household during the vacations, Hedwig was the only magical interaction that was possible for Harry.

The beautiful owl was always loyal to Harry and was present whenever Harry needed him.

Dobby, a free elf


Last but the most in love is House elf Dobby. Adoring, right from the first appearance in Chamber of Secrets, Dobby has perhaps been Harry's best friend after Ron and Hermionie. Always committed to help Harry Potter, Dobby worked in the kitchen of Hogwarts after he was freed by Harry from Lucius Malfoy.

Dobby helped Harry during the second task of the triwizard tournament. Also, he kept an eye on Kreacher when Harry wanted him to. He was the one to tell Harry about the room of requirement. Finally, Dobby rescued Harry and his friends from the Malfoy manor, ultimately leading to his death in the process.

The way Harry mourned Dobby's death and conducted his funeral, showed how much Dobby meant to Harry. One of the most lovable magical creatures, Harry could always trust him. Truly wished, he hadn't died.

"Harry Potter asks if he can help Dobby ... Dobby has heard of your greatness, sir, but of your goodness, Dobby never knew .

— Dobby, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

      Fawkes would be cool to have around, but Hedwig is my favorite.
