"He usually picked Harry to help him with these reconstructions; so far, Harry had been forced to play a simple Transylvanian villager whom Lockhart had cured of a Babbling Curse, a yeti with a head cold, and a vampire who had been unable to eat anything except lettuce since Lockhart had dealt with him."
—Defence Against the Dark Arts class[src]

The Babbling Curse (incantation unknown) was a curse that caused uncontrollable babbling.[1]

History

According to Gilderoy Lockhart, he once cured a Transylvanian farmer of this affliction, but as he proved an untrustworthy source of information and a fraud,[2] it was possible the curse did not exist at all. However, the curse itself might exist, but it could be that someone else cured said villager.[1]
