Revealing Charm

The Revealing Charm makes invisible ink become visible.

  • "Aparecium" may have been the implied spell in Prisoner of Azkaban when Professor Snape tapped the Marauder's Map with his wand ordering the parchment to "reveal your secrets" before being insulted by the long-ago voices of the Marauders. (PA14)
