Such a beautiful place, to be with friends. Dobby
is happy to be with his friend, Harry Potter.
Make it a powerful memory, the happiest you can remember,
allow it to fill you up. A full body Patronus is the most difficult
to produce but shield charms can also be equally useful against
a variety of opponents. Just remember, your Patronus can only
protect you as long as you’re focused.
Harry Potter Etymology | Patronus Charm (“Expecto Patronum”)
Patronus means “protector”, “guardian”, or simply “patron” in Latin, specifically reflecting the entire role that the Patronus Charm plays. In archaic Latin, it meant “father”, which is very interesting, considering that Harry Potter’s Patronus is the same as his father’s Patronus and Animagus form, a stag. The Latin word exspecto or expecto means “I look out for” or “I wait for”, thus the charm’s incantation roughly translates into “I await a protector.”
