Dementor Attack

The soulless creatures called dementors are often described as the foulest beings on earth. They are known to drain the happiness from people, feeding on their despair and their worst memories. They are also heard to be able to suck out a person's soul through a process called the Dementor's Kiss.

The Dementor’s Kiss is known to leave the victims in a state generally considered worse than death. In this process, the dementor reportedly pulls back its hood and sucks out his or her soul, leaving the person an empty shell, alive but completely, irretrievably 'gone'.

Unlike other creatures that move through some means of physical support such as wings, dementors are said to be able to fly and glide freely. Dementors are also known to be blind, as they do not have any eyes. However, they are known have the ability to sense whether a presence is near them or not. This is because they have been reported to be able to sense the victim's emotions.

It is said that dementors grow like fungi- in dark, moist places, creating a dense, chilly fog. It has also been reported that the presence of a dementor makes the surrounding atmosphere grow cold and dark, and the effects are cumulative with the number of dementors present. There have also been several reports that dementors cannot be destroyed but chocolate is thought to be an effective first aid against mild cases of contact.


Dementors have been described as having a humanoid shape, approximately 10 feet high, and are covered in dark hooded cloaks of long, ripped black cloth, making them closely resemble wraiths. Its body is supposedly greyed and decayed looking, like a decomposing corpse, and its breath sounds rattling, like it is trying to "suck more than air" out of a room. Its hands are reported to be glistening, greyish, slimy-looking, and scabbed. 

Since dementors are known to be blind, their face have been reported to consist empty eye sockets, covered with scabby skin. It is also said to have a gaping large hole where the mouth should be, which is used for sucking the soul out of the victim during the Dementors Kiss.
