Effect

Parts the target

Partis Temporus is a charm that temporarily parts the target where the caster points their wand, creating a gap in it. This spell was effective in producing a magical partition in the Firestorm Charm.

When a horde of Inferi attacked Professor Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter on the island in the Horcrux cave, Dumbledore produced a Firestorm to drive them off, and then used "Partis Temporus" to create a channel in the wild, encircling flames wide enough to allow himself and Harry to escape in their boat.

Etymology

"Partis" most likely comes from the Latin term "partio", meaning "to divide". "Temporus" may come from the Latin "temporarius", meaning "temporary". All together, the spell translates as "to temporarily divide or part".
