"He caressed it gently, too; and then he raised it, and pointed it at Wormtail, who was lifted off the ground, and thrown against the head-stone where Harry was tied; he fell to the foot of it and lay there, crumpled up and crying."
—Description[src]

Everte Statum[3] is the incantation of a duelling spell[1]. It causes a short burst of intense pain, which can make the victim stumble, but does not cause any lasting damage[2]. Draco Malfoy used this spell against Harry Potter during the Duelling Club in 1992, despite being instructed to only use the Disarming Charm[2].

Practitioners

Etymology

From Latin everte, meaning "to throw out" and statum, meaning "stand". This implies that it would cause the victim to be thrown from their standing position, which most notably coincides with the effect seen in the films.
