Extra Credit:
Name the 3 Unforgiveable Curses. Describe how to cast each and the effects of each curse. Why are they unforgiveable and what will happen to the person who cast them?

The Unforgiveable Curses all cause great harm to the person affected. The harm may be emotional damage, physical pain or death, depending on the curse. Using any of these curses, if caught, will result in life-long impresonment in Azkaban.

While someone with great magical abilities and protections may be able to resist the first 2 curses, there is no known counter-curse for the Killing Curse.

All 3 curses are cast by pointing your wand at the intended victim and incanting the proper spell word.

Imperius Curse - spell word "Imperio". Result -the caster then has total control over the actions of the victim.

Cruciatius Curse - spell word "Crucio". Result - the curse causes almost unbearable pain for the victim.

Killing Curse - spell word "Avada Kedavra". Result - the curse results in a flash of brilliant green light and a rushing sound, and the instant death of the victim.
