Extra Credit: 
Name the 3 Unforgiveable Curses. Describe how to cast each and the effects of each curse. Why are they unforgiveable and what will happen to the person who cast them?

1. Crucio-The Cruciatus curse tortures the victim unmercifully.  The effect of the curse has to do with the feelings of the person casting it.

2. Imperio- An individual under the Imperius curse has no free will or ability to make decisions, acting essentially as a puppet of the dark witch or wizard who is casting the curse. 

3.  Avada Kedavra, the killing curse, is the most devastating unforgivable curse. It causes a jet of green light, and a rushing noise; the curse causes instant death to the victim. It leaves no mark of death.

The curses are so named because their use is - except by Ministry authorisation - forbidden and unforgivable when used on another human or probably any sentient being.  Use of any of these spells on any human being can carry a whole life tariff in the magical wizard's prison of Azkaban. To perform the Unforgivable Curses, the caster must "mean it". This means that they need to want the effects a fair amount for the effects to last
