About This Quiz

In many ways, a Patronus is like a spirit protector. As Professor Lupin explains to Harry Potter, your Patronus is a representation of all the things a Dementor might want to feed upon – your hopes and your dreams, your happiness and your very desire to live. It is essentially the goodness within you, the positive things that make you who you are, brought to life as a silvery, shimmering protector. It is more powerful than a Dementor because it can't be bogged down with negative emotion like despair, meaning that the powers of a Dementor will have no effect on it. Pretty cool little spell to know, all things considered.

The form a Patronus takes can be very personal to the wizard casting it, even if they don't fully realize why. Consider that Harry Potter had the very same Patronus as his father, or that Severus Snape and Lily Potter both had a doe. It can connect you to others and express some of the innermost parts of your soul. So if you had a mythical beast as a Patronus, like Albus Dumbledore and his Phoenix, then surely that would mean something about who you are and what drives you.
