↪ The Magic Begins Challenge - 21. Favourite Spell/Curse
The Full Body-Bind Curse, also known as the Body Freezing Spell (Petrificus Totalus) is a curse that paralyses the opponent. It is often used by inexperienced or young wizards in duelling. The victim’s arms and legs snap together, and he or she will fall down, stiff as a board. However the person’s skills to hear, watch (however just straight forward), feel, and think still work properly.
The Full Body-Bind Curse is fundamentally different from petrification, which is highly Dark Magic and which cannot be reversed by a simple counter-curse.
