“So. . . do any of you know which curses are most heavily punished by wizarding
law?” said Moody.
Several hands rose tentatively into the air, including Ron’s and Hermione’s. Moody
pointed at Ron, though his magical eye was still fixed on Lavender.
“Er,” said Ron tentatively, “my dad told me about one . . . Is it called the Imperius
Curse, or something?”
“Ah, yes,” said Moody appreciatively. “Your father would know that one. Gave
the Ministry a lot of trouble at one time, the Imperius Curse.”
Moody got heavily to his mismatched feet, opened his desk drawer, and took out a
glass jar. Three large black spiders were scuttling around inside it. Harry felt Ron
recoil slightly next to him – Ron hated spiders.
Moody reached into the jar, caught one of the spiders, and held it in the palm of
his hand so that they could all see it. He then pointed his wand at it and muttered,
The spider leapt from Moody’s hand on a fine thread of silk and began to swing

Ron gave an involuntary shudder.
“Years back, there were a lot of witches and wizards being controlled by the
Imperius Curse,” said Moody, and Harry knew he was talking about the days in
which Voldemort had been all-powerful. “Some job for the Ministry, trying to sort
out who was being forced to act, and who was acting of their own free will.
“The Imperius Curse can be fought, and I’ll be teaching you how, but it takes real
strength of character, and not everyone’s got it. Better avoid being hit with it if you
can. CONSTANT VIGILANCE!” he barked, and everyone jumped.
