Avenseguim[1] was the incantation of a charm that turned a target object into a tracking device.[2]

History

In 1927, Newt Scamander used this spell to track the origins of a feather - a clue found during his search for Tina Goldstein - back to Yusuf Kama, whose hat the feather came from.[1]

Etymology

The incantation Avenseguim is likely derived from the portmanteau of avens, a Latin adjective for "eager" or "craving",[3] and seguir, the Spanish and Portuguese verb meaning "to follow",[4] or alternatively from the Catalan seguim, meaning "we follow". Taken together, Avenseguim can be interpreted as "to eagerly follow", which aptly characterises the behaviour of a tracking device.
