It is no secret that a wand can tell you a lot about the witch or wizard who wields it. Because of this, it is no stretch to assume that by looking at a couple’s wands, one can predict their compatibility. Complementary wands can hold great insight to how well a pair works together.
Today’s couple is particularly special, as this pairing is made of the author’s two dearest friends. Seventh year Ravenclaw, Marzia Sterling is likely not a stranger to you. Our favourite pixie-esque Ravenclaw has been known to throw quirky get togethers and has always stood out from the crowd. Sixth year Slytherin, Caryxander Mordushku is probably known due to his word vomit of a name and propensity for SMASHING the opposition on the Quidditch Pitch. [Editor’s Note: I may be incredibly biased.] Individually, this pair stands out on their own, but how do they fare as a couple? Perhaps, their wands can give us some insight.
They say the owner of an Ebony wand must have the courage to be themselves. I doubt any would tell you anything different of Marzia. Non-conformist, individual, and comfortable with her status, words used both to describe the ideal Ebony wielder and Marzia ‘Magpie’ Sterling. [Editor’s Note: Nickname’s trademarked. I will fight you.] These traits likely help her relationship with Mordushku, as you would have to be comfortable as an outsider to be with someone who could possibly one day pass on a surname such as ‘Mordushku’. What else could be said of our Ebony flaunting Seventh year? Based upon the wood of the wand which chose her, she’s likely to stand strong by her beliefs, no matter the pressure. This stubborn nature probably helps her when dealing with Caryxander as well, as anyone who has ever been friends with him could tell you.
On the other hand is Cary. There’s not much to say about cherry wands, the lore behind them being particularly scarce. What we know is that while the Cherry tree boasts beautiful pink blossoms, the wand itself is capable of truly lethal power. Anyone who has seen Cary in dueling can attest that this much is true. It is likely handy that Marzia and her Ebony wand are also capable of combative magic when dealing with a duelist like Cary. His wand being paired with Dragon Heartstring possibly implies that he has exceptional self-control and strength of mind as well.
Overall, I would say this is a decent pairing, though not the absolute best we have seen. That said, it is possible that these two are made for each other, as there is no real signs to the alternative. Perhaps, only time will tell.
