What Is Imperio?

Imperius Curse That Appears In Original Books

The Imperio Curse is one of the Unforgivable Curses in the Harry Potter series. It will make the opponent submissive to the caster. Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters use this curse to gain more of their followers by casting them on innocent people.

Forbidden Spells Were Legal In The Past

Avada Kedavra, Imperio, and Crucio are the Unforgivable Curses during the Harry Potter series time frame. All of them are Dark powerful magics that are forbidden to use.

However, since Hogwarts Legacy takes place in the past, these spells are frequently used in battles.
