It’s our last weekend this month where we spotlighted various creatures encountered in the world of Harry Potter. There are a lot more I could write about in the future (and I still just might) but today I am going to end our month-long venture with a creature I would desperately want to meet: the hippogriff.
Hello there Rowling fans, your favorite weekend creature column is continuing our month long venture in to the magical world of Harry Potter creatures with one hell of a monstrosity this week: the dementor. These creatures are so vile and evil they could easily have their own spot on our devilish Horrors or Villain Spotlight columns, but since they are fresh in my mind as I re-live the third novel in the Harry Potter series, I’m going to bring them to you here first.
There are dozens of monsters and creatures in the Harry Potter series I would love to encounter, but I think thestrals are on the top of my list. Thanks to Greek mythology many of us are fascinated with the Pegasus like horses out there, but thestrals add a unique twist to the concept. This weekend we will fly alongside our Hogwarts classmates on this magnificent monster as we learn more about the magical creatures from Harry Potter’s world.
