The Wand-Lighting Charm
The Wand-Lighting Charm,or Lumos, is a very simple, but extremely useful charm. Ranging from daily uses such as navigating through a dark room, to being a guiding light in a life-or-death situation. This charm, no matter how simple, is a very important addition to every “wizard’s resume.”
To perform the spell, one must simply envision a warm glow sprouting from the tip of their wand and a quick flicking motion. Remember, it is very important not to add any extra flourishes or unnecessary force to this flicking motion. If this is done, the spell will not work (and depending on the situation, it could be deadly).
If done correctly, the wand should emit a steady “warm” glow. The light should not die unless the caster says the counter-incantation, Nox (see the next chapter for this spell).
