“Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth,” said Professor Remus Lupin in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. “They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them. Even Muggles feel their presence, though they can’t see them. Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you.
