This is a collection of those spells deemed generally to be Dark magic, freely available only to WHPS members, Durmstrang pupils and former pupils, and the like - in short, Dark wizards, or those regularly in their ambit. Hogwarts-educated souls, like Beauxbatons and Salem, would require an IC explanation for how they come to know items from this list. The vast majority of these spells are, unsurprisingly, offensive. They are also, less than shockingly, curses, and high-level examples of such. They are, essentially, such spells as permanently violate the target, or their free will, even if their use can, arguably, be made "for the greater good".

There are, obviously, degrees of Dark-ness, and the three Unforgivables (Imperio, Crucio and Avada Kedavra) have a particular status.

The judgement of the 'Darkness' or otherwise of a spell is an Admin/B-Crat one.
