Point wand at target
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 hoard 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.
Partis is a plural form of the French verb partir, which means "to separate," "to go away," "to leave," or "to depart." Temporis is Latin for "time."
