History

Etymology

Their name is probably derived from Abraxas, one of the horses of Aurora, the Dawn, in Roman mythology.

Behind the scenes

  • Rubeus Hagrid once claimed to have a friend who bred Abraxan horses, though this was likely only part of a story that he made up to distract Dolores Umbridge. Alternatively, he may have been referring to Olympe Maxime.
