Bat-Bogey Hex

Invented c. 1930s. As the youngest child in a large family, Miranda Goshawk often found it difficult to make herself heard, and developed this hex to give her sisters a piece of her mind: she cast it on her sister Diadema, so that she returned clothes she borrowed without permission; on her sister Romilda to keep her out of her room; on her sister Tangwystl when she wanted to keep her quiet so she could finish her homework.

Tom Riddle

Used as the sign of the Death Eaters. Created during, or shortly prior to, the First Wizarding War.

Invented in 1990. Pandora's death was described as 'gory'.

Fred and George Weasley

Patented Daydream Charms

Invented between 1994 - 1995.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • It is possible that Gilderoy Lockhart was a spell inventor, as he seemed to make several spells (Deboning, Peskipiksi Pesternomi, etc.) up on the spot. This would explain why he did not expect them to work the way they did all of them producing the correct effect (etymologically speaking) bar Peskipiksi Pesternomi.

AppearancesEdit

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. Pandora Lovegood, as one of her spells went wrong and killed her. From Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film & book)
