{{Dialogue a-b-a|Slughorn|Well, well, it can't hurt to give you an overview, of course. Just so that you understand the term. A Horcrux is the word used for an object in which a person has concealed part of their soul.|Riddle|I don't quite understand how that works, sir.|Well, you split your soul, you see, and hide part of it in an object outside the body. Then, even if one's body is attacked or destroyed, one cannot die, for part of the soul remains earthbound and undamaged. But, of course, existence in such a form...few would want it, Tom, very few. Death would be preferable.|Horace Slughorn and Tom Riddle discussing Horcruxes|Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince}}

Creation of a Horcrux is considered the foulest act of [[Dark Arts|Dark magic]], as it attempts to violate and tamper with the multiple laws of nature and morality in its creation. Horcruxes are objects considered to be so evil that even the texts published explicitly to cater to the practise of the most terrible kinds of magic will not speak of them. Even ''[[Magick Moste Evile]]'' skirts the topic. It is a banned subject in [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]].

Even ''[[Magick Moste Evile]]'' skirts the topic. It is a banned subject in [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]], and Slughorn feared that by discussing it with Tom Riddle, he would receive negative highlights from Albus Dumbledore.
