"Thin cords shot from Lupin's wand this time, and next moment, Pettigrew was wriggling on the floor, bound and gagged."

Incarcerous is the incantation of a jinx that can be used to bind the victim with ropes[1].



Quirinus Quirrell's Incarcerous on Harry Potter


The incantation "incarcerous" most likely derives from the Latin word "incarcerus", meaning "to jail" or "to imprison".

  • "Incarcerus" is also the Danish translation of "Incarcerous".
