==Etymology==
 
The name "Heliopath" appears to derive from the Greek ''hḗlios'' meaning "sun"<ref>[http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Helio- Helio-, Etymology of]</ref> (and therefore also the name of a Greek solar deity) combined with the suffix "-path" from Greek ''páthos'' meaning "suffering, sensation"<ref>[http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pathos Pathos-, Etymology of]</ref>. Therefore, a Heliopath means "sun sensation/sensation of the sun" or (more correctly) "something which feels like the Sun" - a fitting description (assuming that these creatures exist at all). Alternately, given their attribute of burning everything in their path, it could be correct to say they are or they bring "suffering like that of the Sun" - an intense heat, certainly.

— Luna and Hermione bicker over the existence of heliopaths[src]

A Heliopath is a spirit of fire which is claimed to gallop and burn anything in its path.

This is one of the many creatures that Luna Lovegood claims to exist, but which is not documented anywhere else. She claimed that Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic at the time, had an army of these creatures at his command, though given his ineptitude for leadership, as well as Luna's beliefs being dubious, this is unlikely. She also claimed there were plenty of eye-witnesses to their existence.
