What is your Patronus?

About This Quiz

If you're a huge Harry Potter fan, you'll have no doubt chosen your Patronus already. But what if the animal you've chosen to represent you is all wrong? Well, we've got a solution for you in this Patronus quiz! If you really want to know what animal would protect you from the evil dementors, take this quiz!

For those of you who don't know what a Patronus is, but are still curious, Patronuses are guardians that protect you against Dementors -soul-sucking creatures that can leave you like a husk if they give you the Dementor's kiss. These creatures guard the wizard prison Azkaban but have been known to come near Hogwarts. Patronuses are conjured with the spell "Expecto Patronum," which brings forth an animal that chases the Dementor/s away.

Conjuring a Patronus is no easy task, which is why some appear as corporeal and non-corporeal forms. The skill of the wizard determines which one appears, which is why you should be happy that you can actually bring an animal forth. The question is, which animal is it? Will your Patronus be an otter, like Hermione's? Or will yours be something the magical world has not yet seen? Take this quiz to find out!
