The Hogwarts potions champion eluded the serpent by first attempting to gain its attention by starting a fire in the nearby forest with a cartful of dry hay and the Fire-Making Spell, and, when this did not work, destroying an abandoned tower on the hill by disintegrating its supports with the Reductor Curse. With the snake's attention drawn, the student attracted it by smashing a Pungous Onion provided by Book of Potions and then poured Sleeping Potion onto its outstretched tongue while it was investigating the scent. This put the creature to sleep long enough for the champion to pass the hill.
