Effect

Creates a ghostly head that the caster can control

This spell is a curse that manifests itself as a ghostly green head that can be used to knock out an opponent.

Behind the scenes

  • In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, Quirinus Quirrell/Lord Voldemort used this curse against Harry Potter and Hermione Granger in an attempt to kill them.
  • It would seem reasonable to assume that this curse might well be based on the Celtic warrior custom of decapitating enemies, coating the head in lime (the calcium-based variety), and hurling it at relatives of the deceased, as this would drain the second victim of life.
