Creator

This charm was invented by Orabella Nuttley, in or before 1754.


The Mending Charm, also known as the Repairing Charm (Reparo) is a charm that can be used to repair a broken object into like new condition. It works on most items, with a few exceptions.

Casting and Effects

The Mending Charm is effective at repairing most items. However, damage caused by certain powerful curses is impossible to undo. It can also not fix powerful magical items.

The charm is suitable for use only on inanimate objects. Do not use on living beings, it is not a healing spell. Attempting to do so may cause more harm to the person or animal.

When properly cast the Mending Charm is usually enough to fix an object to like new condition. However less experienced casters may not be successful in returning liquids to formerly broken containers.

This charm does not work on objects of powerful and complex magic, such as Vanishing Cabinets and wands. For snapped wands, while this charm can repair the physical form, the ability to cast spells with it is damaged beyond repair, any attempt to use it again will cause it to break anew. The only wand rumored to be able to fix a wand with this spell is the Elder Wand.

Etymology

Latin reparo meaning "to renew" or "repair".

Role players are of course more than welcome to attempt to cast this spell if they are below the required level. In some cases -usually in the event of a resounding success (critical)- the attempt may roll success despite being below its required level.
