In 1927, Queenie Goldstein likely placed one of these enchantments on her romantic interest Jacob Kowalski, in order to convince him to marry her. Though Jacob was in love with her already, she wanted to marry in defiance of Rappaport's Law (which made No-Maj and wizardkind unions illegal), while he was reluctant to do so out of fear that she would get in serious legal trouble over the matter. However, their friend Newt Scamander realised that Jacob was bewitched when the couple visited him at his house 9 Sherringford Square, and he undid her spell with the counter-charm Surgito.
Behind the scenes
- The fact that these are first mentioned on Valentine's Day, combined with the "entrancing" part of the name, implies that the spells have an effect similar to Love Potions. However, one difference is that unlike with Love Potions, the spells cause the target to be unable to remember what happened while they are entranced.
- As with love potions, true love cannot be manufactured, so this charm most likely creates artificial infatuations.
