A phantom is a magical creature with the ability to move around unseen. Throughout his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter often describes himself as feeling like a phantom.
Behind the scenes
- It is unknown, given that the creature is never explicitly mentioned to be such, whether the phantom is a real creature, or if perhaps it is merely referring to a feeling of invisibility and unimportance.
- If phantoms are real creatures, it is unknown whether they are beings, beasts or spirits.
