    Albert Pettigrew vs. Grayson Ollivander
    “I trust you will both behave honourably and adhere to our rules,” she concluded. “Mr. Pettigrew to start!”

    Though his own career had little to do with combat, Albert was fairly confident that the Ollivander knew more about making the wands them using them in duels. That's what the family trained for, right? How drab it must be to know one's own fate was secured through one's surname—and in such an awfully boring occupation, too! He was confident he would win.

    After bowing and doing all the formalities, Albert raised his wand and aimed to transfigure Mr. Ollivander's fingers to wood that would hopefully look similar to small, skinny wands.
    @Grayson Ollivander/@Astrid Parkinson
    Dueling a Ministry man could go one of two ways. Either being mired in paperwork for most of their working life would mean that the man in question had become sloppy with his wandwork, or else the Ministry man in question would be skilled and keen to show he was more than a quill-pusher. Both possibilities carried with them one happy advantage for Grayson: the Ministry man would underestimate him. They always did. They believed their work so important that a man from the world of trade was clearly beneath them and not worth bringing their best game to.

    Luckily for Grayson his particular trade gave him a way with wands that a posturing official couldn't hope to emulate. Inclining his head Grayson sent a spell designed to heat the other man's wand to the point of it being impossible to hold.

    @Albert Pettigrew
    As Mr. Pettigrew dropped his wand mid-spell, it was plain that the wandmaker’s efforts had not been in vain. Astrid declared Ollivander the winner of the first round, and directed him to begin the next.

    Trickier spells having seen him do well thus far Gray opted to stay with precision over force and sent a slightly dubious spell of his own devising intended to make the wand's core temporarily become unstable inside the wood and create a new character for the stick altogether, thus rendering it difficult to manage in such a hectic moment.

    @Albert Pettigrew
    Completely unaware of what spell was hurdling towards him, Albert opted for a stronger shield charm to protect himself.
    @Grayson Ollivander
    Astrid was not certain what precisely Mr. Ollivander’s spell did—but could see that his efforts had stymied Mr. Pettigrew’s own. She declared the wandmaker to be the duel’s winner.
