A ridiculous shape
The boggart is a magical creature from the world of the famous wizard Harry Potter. In this world, wizards live among humans but also have a whole parallel world inaccessible to those who are not wizards or have magical blood. In the Harry Potter books and movies, Harry discovers that he is a wizard on his eleventh birthday. He had been raised by his aunt and uncle since the death of his parents when he was only one year old, and in total ignorance of the world of magic. He went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn all there is to know about this world. In his third year, Professor Remus Lupin taught a course on boggarts (scarecrows in French). These are creatures that take the form of whatever scares the person in front of them the most. To repel them, you have to say ridikulous” and force them into a funny shape. Neville Longbottom is the first to pass and so the boggart takes the form of Severus Snape. Lupin then suggests that he give Snape his grandmother’s clothes, which amuses Neville and the rest of the class.
