The Impervius Charm (Impervius) was a charm that made an object repel water and mist. This could be used to allow someone better sight in bad weather conditions by preventing the rain from hitting their faces.
|Hermione Granger||6 November, 1993||Hermione used this spell to make Harry Potter's glasses repel water during a rainy Quidditch match.|
|1 May, 1998||Hermione used this in an attempt to protect herself, Ron Weasley, Bogrod, and Griphook from the burning, multiplying treasure in the Lestrange Vault at Gringott's Bank during break-in.|
|Gryffindor Quidditch team||1995-1996 school year||The entire Gryffindor team used it on their faces to try to practise in a driving rain, but they still gave up after an hour.|
Behind the scenes
- The charm may also be related to the Imperturbable Charm, an enchantment used to completely block everything out of a given area for a certain period of time, including sound and presumably water.
- In the Harry Potter films and video games, Harry and other Quidditch players use Quidditch Goggles to protect their eyes instead.
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (First appearance)
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
