Fawkes (Harry Potter)

A beautiful bird

Fawkes is represented here in flight with his wings spread and standing above a thick yellow flame. This beautiful bird’s plumage is in the colors of fire in a gradient of yellow, red and orange but otherwise has many of the characteristics of an eagle with its long hooked beak and bird of prey talons. Its tail feathers are also very long, which can also make it look like a peacock when in flight.


A faithful ally

Fawkes is a phoenix, Dumbledore’s faithful companion in the literary and cinematographic saga Harry Potter. We meet him for the first time in the second part of the saga when Harry enters Dumbledore’s office and it catches fire before being reborn. At the end of this episode, it is also Fawkes who brings the sword of Gryffindor to Harry when this one needs it to fight the basilisk, then heals the wound of Harry with his tears and carries Harry, Ron, Ginny and Lockhart to help them to leave the tunnel. Indeed, the phoenixes, in addition to catching fire and rising from their ashes regularly, have healing powers and a surprising strength compared to their size. We see Fawkes again when he helps Dumbledore escape from the minister who came to arrest him and finally, when Dumbledore at the end of the sixth film leaves Hogwarts for good.
