How many Patronuses are there?

How many Patronuses are there?

The Pottermore team appears to be keeping the official number of Patronuses a secret, but sleuths at Hypable assembled a list of 142 creatures due to MuggleNet and Reddit, where users have been sharing their results both gleefully and angrily.

They came up with this figure by taking each word that can be found in "the name of Harry's magical creature" on Pottermore and counting how many times it shows up in the text. They then assumed every other word was an acronym or abbreviation for something else and counted those things too. For example, they counted "Dolores Diggle-Granger" as two names because it's spelled with two letters instead of one. Then they added all the numbers together to get their estimate of how many Patronuses there are.

What are the three rarest patronuses?

What determines your patronus?

The precise animal shapes that a corporeal patronus assumes will differ from person to person and represent the core characteristics of each individual. If a wizard is an Animagus and can conjure a physical Patronus, the two can take on the same shape, as Minerva McGonagall and James Potter did. However, because they were able to project their emotions into objects, it is possible that some variation in appearance would still exist even if they chose not to vary it themselves.

Your patron object is what you focus your magic energy into when creating or calling forth your spirit companion. The more emotion you put into it, the stronger its bond with you will be. It can be a living creature - such as a wolf or bear - or inanimate object like a sword or shield.

Although you cannot control how your patron reacts to you, there are certain things that may change the nature of your relationship. For example, if your patron is involved in wars or other violence, it may call for a similar response from you. Further, if your patron is evil, then you should know that going in. No matter how close you become to your patron, there will always be aspects of them that you do not understand. This is part of the beauty of friendship - those secrets shared between only two people.

It is possible for wizards or witches to have more than one patron. They can have different ones at different times or even within one single life.

What does "Patronum" mean?

A patronus is inextricably linked to the personality of a witch or wizard, albeit it does not necessarily take the animal shape that they would expect. For example, it's odd for it to assume the form of the caster's favorite animal, but it's highly conceivable that it will take the form of a species they've never seen or heard of before.

The word comes from the Latin patroneus, meaning "protector," and refers to the spirit guide of a witch or wizard. It forms a bond with its master that cannot be broken, even if their owner dies. The spirit guide takes on a physical form that is reminiscent of its owner; thus the term "pet ghost." They are invisible to normal humans, but visible to witches and wizards.

There are three types of patronuses: good, neutral, and evil. They determine what powers the witch/wizard inherits upon creation. If no type of patronus is specified when creating one, then at random the creator gets to choose either good, neutral, or evil.

Good patronuses help their masters overcome their enemies and sometimes act as bodyguards. They usually take the form of animals known for their loyalty and courage, such as dogs or cats. Good patronuses also bring good luck and success in love. Neutral patroni serve as reminders of past events and sometimes act as guides. They often take the form of birds or insects.

Which patronus is the rarest?

Albatrosses The albatross is the most uncommon Patronus on our list, with the fewest Wizarding World admirers. Only two other creatures have been seen bearing this charm: a nymph and a satyr.

Bears The bear is the second-most common Patronus, following the unicorn. There are six different bears in all, four of which are found in North America. The others can be found in Asia and Europe.

Cats The cat is the third-most common Patronus, following the bear and the unicorn. It exists in three different forms: domestic, Persian, and Scottish/Jekyll. There are many more domestic cats in the United States than there are Persians or Scottish/Jekylls. However, people do travel to foreign countries to purchase these kinds of cats from dealers who sell into the pet trade.

Eagles The eagle is the fourth-most common Patronus, following the cat, the bear, and the unicorn. There are only three types of eagles: American, African, and Indian.

Flamingos The flamingo is the fifth-most common Patronus, following the eagle, the cat, the bear, and the unicorn.
