About This Quiz

No one really likes Dementors when they run across them because a Dementor is a surly, scary thing. They look like Death with a capital D and, you know, they actually cause death. Dementors are the most terrifying magical creature in the entire Wizarding world. Even if they don't kill you, they'll literally feed on your happiness and hope, taking it away from you and leaving you a husk of your former self.  It's safe to say that the best way to deal with a Dementor is to avoid it at all costs. That being said, what if you are a Dementor?

A leopard can't change its spots, as they say, and no one can deny their nature. You can't really blame a Dementor for being a Dementor anymore than you can blame a lion for hunting and killing its prey. It's just what they do. And if you were a Dementor then, you know, Dementing would be what you did. But how much of a Dementor do you think you really are? How much darkness do you have brewing under the surface inside you? There's only one surefire way to figure that out and it's by taking this quiz!
