Horcrux-making spell
Effect

Prepares a receptacle for the containment of a piece of soul[1]

"The receptacle is prepared by dark magic to become the receptacle of a fragmented piece of soul and that that piece of soul deliberately detached from the Master Soul to act as a future safeguard or anchor to life and to safeguard against death."
J. K. Rowling[src]

This spell could be used to prepare a receptacle for the placing of a piece of soul within it, thereby allowing the targeted object (or creature) to become a Horcrux[1].

Practitioners

Behind the scenes

  • Little, if anything, is known of this spell; it is possible, however, that it will be explained either in the Harry Potter Encyclopedia, or (since the former seems to have been cancelled), on Pottermore.
