The Killing Curse

A curse is one of the seven known spell types and the worst kind of Dark Magic[1]. Curses are used with the intention of causing harm, control, or even death to the victim. Like hexes, Hogwarts students learn only a few of them in school. However, students studying Defence Against the Dark Arts learn how to deal with them using defensive magic.

Most curses can be blocked or lifted by a counter-curse.
