Brackium Emendo is a healing spell that heals broken bones, but was incorrectly performed by Professor Gilderoy Lockhart.

History of use

The only known attempt was by Gilderoy Lockhart on Harry Potter's arm in 1992 after being hit by a tampered Bludger, in the hope of healing the bones.

Etymology

"Brackium" coming from the Latin "Bracchium", meaning forearm. "Emendo" is Latin for "mend".

Behind the scenes

  • It is unknown if this spell existed prior to its usage or if Gilderoy simply made it up on the fly. If so, this would explain its unintended effect.
