"Disembodied human hand."
Folio Bruti[src]

A Loose Hand (also known as a Severed Hand or Disembodied Hand) is a detatched human hand that is lacking in any other part of a human's anatomy that is possessed by a malevolent spirit, gaining the ability the stand, walk, and attack any passerby it despises. It is particularly vulnerable to the Fire-Making Spell, and the Skurge Charm when it is possessed.[1]

This was Dean Thomas's greatest fear and Boggart at least from the 1993–1994 school year, but likely developed the fear previously.[2]

History

In 1993, a boggart took the form of a severed hand in Defence Against the Dark Arts class, when Dean Thomas faced it. When he used the Boggart-Banishing Spell, the hand got caught in a mouse trap.[2]
