Against an army of Dementors, you find yourself one of the rare few who can use this charm. Before you prime your wand and utter the magical incantation, you take a moment to wonder what kind of creature your Patronus would look like.

Even the greatest wizards can struggle with using Expecto Patronum to summon their own spirit guardian. It is among the most advanced spells in existence, and its successful casting is decided by the wizard’s worthiness and character.
Composed of positive energy and capable of fending off Dementors if they were strong enough to be tangible, one’s Patronus is a beacon of silvery light against dark forces. It is a symbol of a wizard’s subconscious self when it is awakened in times of crisis or great evil. Against hostile forces, it acts as a powerful defensive charm that protects its master at all costs.
Many wizards are only able to summon incorporeal Patronuses, which are formless masses of glowing, silver-white mist, and offer a slight amount of protection. Corporeal Patronuses, on the other hand, take on the forms of different creatures, from the mundane mouse or dog, to large animals such as deer or lions, and even legendary beasts like dragons and unicorns. While the sizes and rarities of their forms differ, they have no relation to the charm’s actual power. In fact, one of the greatest Patronuses, having taken down scores of Dementors, took the form of a simple mouse.
Just as no two people are totally alike, each Patronus is unique to their conjurer’s personality, selecting a form and abilities that complement its user. Pottermore has created an extensive list of Patronuses derived from the ones we’ve seen in the series. For example, Albus had a Phoenix Patronus due to his pet flamebird. Hermione had an otter, Luna, a hare, and Ginny, a horse.
Patronuses are also liable to change in special circumstances, such as a romance or through a great personal revelation. Nymphadora’s Patronus changed into a wolf after falling in love with Remus Lupin, who had a lupine Patronus himself.

Which is the strongest Patronus in the series?

Other contenders include Harry’s stag, a concentrated form of his happiest memories, and Snape’s doe.
How can you cast a Patronus charm?

The spell is executed after reciting the magic cant, Expecto Patronum.
