Alastor Moody using the Cruciatus Curse to inflict unspeakable pain on a spider as part of a demonstration


Curse Manipulation is the ability to inflict curses and/or control the nature of curses, fantastical abilities that are explicitly intended to cause harm and misfortune against the target. Curses are primarily depicted as magical in nature and generally fall under the classification of Dark Arts, but they sometimes fall under an entirely different designation.

Possible Uses

  • Death Manipulation: Some curses are known to inflict instantaneous death to swiftly murder their targets.
  • Mind Manipulation: Some curses were created for the purpose of controlling a target, allowing the user to manipulate the target from a distance without actively concentrating on them with a successful applications.
  • Pain Manipulation: Many curses were created with the intention of torturing the target, allowing them to induce the sensation of agony in a target at will.
