Lesson Six: Smoke to Dagger Study Guide

Chapter 7


Smoke is a mix of matter; solid, liquid, & gas. It looks grey in color, thick, & looks like a cloud. There is no sound, taste, or touch. It smells almost like fresh fir & it is not strong.


Daggers have multiple different shapes, designs, & sizes. It looks silver in color & the handle is brown. It sounds loud & sharp when dropped. It has a sharp metallic & wood taste and smell. The sides are smooth, but the point & edges are sharp.


A thing that could go wrong is that you can have all blade or all handle. This transformation was created in 1701 from a transfigurist named Henry Snuff. If you were to use this spell in potions, you could use the smoke to create a knife to cut your item. If you were to use this spell in herbology, you could use the smoke of a plant to create a blade to collect leaves & flowers from the plant you want to harvest.

Incantation: Fumus Lamina (FUH-moos LAWH-meeh-ah)
Wand Movement: A circle around the smoke you are transforming
Concentration: Medium
Willpower: Low

Fun Facts
Most people die in house fires, not from the fire itself, but because of the smoke.
Athames are set aside for special occasions such as religious ceremonies.
A variation of this spell is fog; it is close enough to smoke that the spell will work.
Henry spent a year to record his discovery, but he could not recall the conjuration.
