"Professor Lupin appeared to have woken up at last. Harry could hear movements in his corner. None of them spoke. There was a soft, crackling noise, and a shivering light filled the compartment. Professor Lupin appeared to be holding a handful of flames. They illuminated his tired, grey face, but his eyes looked alert and wary."
—Professor Lupin uses this spell[src]

This spell (incantation unknown) was used to conjure flames that could be held in one's hand without burning them.[1]


Professor Remus Lupin used this spell on the Hogwarts Express on 1 September, 1993 when the train was darkened by the presence of the Dementors of Azkaban.[1]
