"Dumbledore'd bewitched this branch to burn fer evermore, which isn' somethin' any wizard could do... "
—Description from Rubeus Hagrid[src]

Gubraithian Fire (incantation unknown), also known as Everlasting fire, is a flame which has been enchanted to burn forever without dying. It is quite an advanced piece of magic, as few wizards were capable of it.[1]

HistoryEdit

Whether or not the casting of this spell was taught at Hogwarts was unknown, however, according to Hermione Granger, by Harry Potter's fifth year, Professor Flitwick had mentioned the spell at least twice during his Charms lessons.[1]

As a gift for the Giants, Albus Dumbledore provided Rubeus Hagrid with a branch of this fire, and the gift seemed to go down quite well with them.[1]

Known practitionersEdit

EtymologyEdit

"Gubraithian" is possibly taken from the Scottish Gaelic phrase "gu bràth", which means "forever".[2]
