Salvio hexia was the incantation of a protective enchantment which deflected hexes from the area.[1]

History

During the 1988–1989 school year, Patricia Rakepick, the Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor for that academic year, taught this charm to her fifth year DADA students, as something useful and practical to learn, considering the poor teaching that they had received from previous Professors.[2]

In 1997, during their Horcrux hunt, Hermione Granger used this protective charm to seal off an area in the Forest of Dean where she, Ronald Weasley and Harry Potter were staying, to protect them from any dark forces that might have harmed them there, along with other protective charms.[1]

In 1998, Hermione performed this spell again to protect her, Ron and Harry in a field somewhere in Devon, after they disapparated away from the Lovegood House and were attacked by Death Eaters.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • It remains uncertain if Salvio hexia is the incantation for a spell called hex-deflection, or if it is merely one spell that falls under this branch.
