In the description for Maledictuses in the Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts sticker album, it says

A Maledictus is a wizard or witch with a blood curse that transforms them into a beast.

However, the Harry Potter Wiki says that Maledictuses are only female.


No, Maledictuses are only female.

J.K. Rowling said over Twitter that Maledictuses are only women, and their hereditary curse is passed through the female line.

So, J.K. Rowling currently says there are no male Maledictuses, though this isn’t stated anywhere in “official” canon, like the movies or in their official screenplays, yet.
