"An' anyway, yeh couldn' work any of them curses yet, yeh'll need a lot more study before yeh get ter that level."
—Rubeus Hagrid to eleven-year Harry Potter[src]

A curse is a tool of the Dark Arts and one of the seven known spell types and the worst kind of Dark Magic[1]. Curses are used with the intention of causing harm, control, or even death to the victim.

UsageEdit

Like hexes, Hogwarts students learn only a few of them in school. However, students studying Defence Against the Dark Arts learn how to deal with them using defensive magic. Most curses can be blocked or lifted by a counter-curse, with the most notable exceptions being the Killing curse and the Cruciatus Curse, two of the Unforgivable Curses.
