"Dumbledore had drawn back his wand and waved it as though brandishing a whip. A long thin flame flew from the tip; it wrapped itself around Voldemort, shield and all."
—Description.[src]

There existed a spell (incantation unknown) by which one could conjure a long, thin flame from the tip of one's wand with which he or she could bind, ensnare or presumably harm a foe in an action similar to that of a rope.

History Edit

Albus Dumbledore used this charm in an attempt to ensnare Lord Voldemort during their Duel in the Ministry Atrium. However, his attempts were thwarted when the Dark wizard tranfigured the flame into a large serpent, which proceeded to attack the Headmaster.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Although it appeared that McGonagall had used this, she did not conjure any flame, or indeed anything whatsoever; what she actually did was cause a torch to fly off its bracket and then around, creating a whirlwind with the flame it issued.
  • In the film, Dumbledore uses a nonverbal water spell instead of this.
