- " [...] his spell hit Harry so hard he felt as though he'd been hit over the head with a saucepan. He stumbled, but everything still seemed to be working [...]'"
Everte Statum is the incantation of a duelling spell. It causes a short burst of intense pain, which can make the victim stumble, but does not cause any lasting damage. Draco Malfoy used this spell against Harry Potter during the Duelling Club in 1992, despite being instructed to only use the Disarming Charm.
From Latin everte, meaning "to throw out" and statua, meaning "image".
