"Dumbledore had most of the remaining Death Eaters grouped in the middle of the room, seemingly immobilised by invisible ropes..."
—Dumbledore deals swiftly with the Death Eaters[src]

This was a spell to bind or restrain someone with non-visible ropes.


In 1996, Albus Dumbledore captured remaining Death Eaters in the Ministry of Magic and had them grouped in the middle of the Death Chamber, restrained by invisible ropes.[1] Lord Voldemort may have used this spell in 1997, to restrain and suspend Charity Burbage in Malfoy Manor.[2]
