The Revulsion Jinx (Relashio) is a spell that forces an object or person to release its hold on something, or repels objects with the force of another object.

"Pointing his wand at the thick cuffs chaining the best to the floor, he yelled, "Relashio!" "
—Harry casting his spell, freeing Gringotts dragon[src]
Caster(s) Notes
Bob Ogden Used it to knock Marvolo Gaunt backward — away from his daughter, who he was attempting to strangle, because of her love for a Muggle, Tom Riddle Sr..[2]
Hermione Granger Used the jinx to similar effect in 1997 to force Death Eater Yaxley to release her arm, which he grabbed in order to Disapparate with her, Harry, and Ron.[1]
Used it to force chains to withdraw into the arms of a chair in order to free Mary Cattermole from the Muggle-Born Registration Commission when she, Ron, and Harry infiltrated the Ministry of Magic in 1997.[1]
Ron Weasley Used on Peter Pettigrew's silver hand to prevent it from slowly choking himself, although it had no effect whatsoever.[1]
Harry Potter Used on the chains of a dragon during the trio's break-in of Gringotts, in order to facilitate their escape.[1]
Used in 1995 during the second task of the Triwizard Tournament in order to free his ankle from the Grindylow's grip.

Possible Use Edit

  • Mundungus Fletcher may have used this spell in 1996 outside the Three Broomsticks, when Harry, angered by Mundungus's plundering of Sirius Black's possessions, grabbed the former by the throat.[2]
  • Remus Lupin may have used this spell against Harry Potter in 1997 after Harry accused him of cowardice for deciding to abandon his family.[1]
  • Given its effects, it is possible that Relashio may also be able to act as a counter-spell for incarceration spells, Incarcerous and Incarcifors. Relashio may release a victim from the binding ropes conjured via Incarcerous, while it may also free a victim from the prison transfigured from other items using Incarcifors.

Known practitioners Edit

Behind the scenesEdit

EtymologyEdit
