Magical Objects In Harry Potter

Magical Objects In Harry PotterMagical Objects In Harry Potter, In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Hermione Granger creates fake, enchanted Galleons that are used for communication between members of Dumbledore’s Army. Like real Galleons, the coins have numerals around the edge; on normal Galleons these serial numbers indicate which goblin cast the coin, but on the enchanted coins, the numbers represent the time and date of the next meeting, and change automatically to match whatever numbers Harry Potter sets on his coin. Due to the coins being infused with a Protean Charm, once Harry Potter alters his, every coin changes to suit. The coins begin to grow hot when the numbers change to alert the members to look at their coins.

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Draco Malfoy uses a pair of enchanted coins to bypass the communication limits then placed around Hogwarts, thus managing to keep in contact with Madam Rosmerta, whom he had placed under the Imperius Curse. Draco reveals he got the idea from Hermione’s DA coins, which were themselves inspired by Lord Voldemort’s use of the Dark Mark to communicate with his Death Eaters.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Neville Longbottom uses it to tell people like Luna Lovegood and Ginny Weasley that Harry, Ron and Hermione are in Hogwarts. Then they turn up to help in the Battle of Hogwarts, although Ginny’s help is turned down as she is underage.

A Howler is a blood-red letter sent to signify extreme anger or to convey a message very loudly and in public. Upon opening it, the sender’s voice (magically magnified to a deafening volume) will bellow a message at the recipient and then destroy itself. If it is not opened or there is a delay in opening it, the letter will start smouldering, explode violently, and shout the message out even louder than normal.[HP2] In the film version, the Howler folds itself into an origami-style set of lips, shouts the message out and then shreds itself into scraps of paper before it burns itself.

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Ron Weasley receives a Howler from his mother, Molly Weasley, after he steals his father’s enchanted car and flies it to Hogwarts with Harry. Neville Longbottom confessed that he once got a Howler from his grandma. He said he ignored it, and that the result was horrible. Subsequently, Neville receives another Howler from his grandmother after Sirius Black uses his list of passwords to enter the Gryffindor Common Room in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Hermione receives one in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire after Rita Skeeter publishes an article in which she makes up a relationship between Hermione and Harry. However, in the film of the fourth Harry Potter movie, this incident is not referred to. Dumbledore sends Harry’s aunt, Petunia Dursley, a Howler in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to remind her of the agreement to allow Harry to live at Privet Drive, when Harry’s Uncle Vernon attempts to throw him out.
