"If you cast Informus on a beast during a magical encounter, the Folio Bruti stores information on its strengths and weaknesses. Use it to prepare for future encounters."
—Description[src]

The Informous Spell[1] (Informous) was a charm that added a page with information regarding the charmed creature to the caster's Folio Bruti.

Etymology

Informous may be a corruption of the Latin īnfōrmō, from which the English inform, meaning "to communicate knowledge to", is derived from.

Behind the scenes

  • The incantation can also be spelled "Informus", which better suits the etymology.
  • It is unknown whether a magnifying glass actually hovers over the target when the spell is cast, or if this is perhaps merely to show the effects of the spell better.
