Your favorite 'Harry Potter' Patronuses revealed

In the magical world of Harry Potter, a Patronus is one of the most powerful defensive charms.

It takes the form of an animal that evokes the spirit of the spell's caster.

Here out the Patronuses of your favorite characters.

Harry Potter: Stag

Harry's Patronus takes after his father's, which is also a stag. Stags are very social creatures and often are the leaders in their herds.

Ron Weasley: Jack Russell Terrier

J.K. Rowling made Ron's patronus a jack russell terrier in honor of her own pet.

Hermione Granger: Otter

Otters are J.K. Rowling's favorite animals, and Hermione is one of her favorite characters.

Ginny Weasley: Horse

Horses are often described as free-spirited, which accurately describes the bold Weasley sister.

Luna Lovegood: Hare

Hares are shy creatures, which aligns itself perfectly with soft-spoken Luna.

Albus Dumbledore: Phoenix

Straight out of Greek mythology, the phoenix is a legendary firebird that dies in a burst of flames and is reborn from its ashes.

Since Dumbledore is one of the world's most powerful wizards, it only makes sense.

Severus Snape: Doe

Snape's Patronus takes after Lily Potter's, whom he was secretly in love with for his entire life.

Minerva McGonagall: Cat

The professor of transfiguration can physically turn herself into a cat. Therefore, her Patronus would represent that too.
