Hags are a fictional sapient species featured in the Harry Potter series.


Hags resemble old-looking women with numerous warts, four toes on each foot, and sharp teeth. Hags possess rudimentary magic and complete sapience, and are mainly separated from witches by their carnivorous diet; the main course of any Hag's meal is raw liver, which, unfortunately, hags used to usually obtain from children. Neverthelesss, most Hags have reformed in more recent times, and are considered as Beings by the British Ministry of Magic. Whether any male Hags exist is unknown; it is possible that Hags reproduce asexually.
