— Ron and Hermione become suspicious after Harry takes Felix Felicis and says he's going to see Hagrid[src]

Essence of Insanity is a potion which presumably causes irrational behaviour, possibly inflicting the condition of insanity. Ron Weasley wondered if Harry Potter had consumed this instead of Felix Felicis on 21 April, 1997.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
