Behind the scenes

  • In Hogwarts Mystery, if Ben Copper is chosen by Jacob's sibling to accompany him and Bill Weasley on their quest to enter the Cursed Vault on the fifth floor corridor, he will use this charm to remove the footprints that the trio left behind while walking over the frost-covered floors therein to cover their tracks in an effort to make it impossible for the professors to tell for certain they were there.
