This spell (incantation unknown) was used by an unidentified Durmstrang student in 1994 during their entrance in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]


The witch or wizard casts the spell and blows on the tip of the wand which results in a stream of fire to erupt from the tip. This stream then changes shape into a winged animal, before dissipating.

Behind the scenes

  • This spell may be Fiendfyre, given that the effects appear to be the same, and that Durmstrang Institute is known for teaching Dark magic. In addition, Fiendfyre is quite difficult to control, so this may be a demonstration of an extremely difficult skill in Dark magic to impress Hogwarts.
