This spell was a fiery offensive spell used in duellings. It is possible that, when directly hit, it causes the opponent to be scorched or incinerated. Deflecting the spell on others will cause them to pass out from heat exhaustion.
Behind the scenes
- In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Minerva McGonagall uses this spell to fend off Severus Snape and the Carrows. However, this usage of the spell cannot be considered canon as, in the novel, the duel between McGonagall and Snape is much different from what is shown on the film.
- This spell looks remarkably similar to the Blasting Curses that Hermione Granger and Harry Potter used against Nagini in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2.
- During the duel between Minerva McGonagall and Severus Snape in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the fire from the Great Hall's torches diminishes. It could be that McGonagall used that fire for her spell or it could be that the director wanted the torches diminished to created a more darker and tense atmosphere for the duel.
