This curse (incantation unknown) was used by Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996. The curse's hand movement is unknown. Although Bellatrix used it to kill Sirius Black, it probably just makes the victim fall or have a push effect.
Behind the scenes
- In the film adaptation, Bellatrix casts the Killing Curse on Sirius instead of this unknown curse.
- This spell may have been the Impediment Jinx. Furthermore, considering the fact that it had red light, it could have been the Stunning Spell, an offensive spell she was herself proficient with.
