    Patronus Charm

    The Battle of Hogwarts is fought in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final book in the series.

    Combatants, weapons, and strategy clash in the incarnate universe so they read as a parallel version of the war in heaven. Zeus [Jupiter] and the Olympian Pantheon came to power after they were challenged by the formidable Titans, described as primordial by nature.

     

    From Chapter Thirty, The Sacking of Severus Snape

    Professor McGonagall pointed her wand at the Carrows, and a silver net fell upon their bound bodies, tied itself around them, and hoisted them into the air, where they dangled beneath the blue-and-gold ceiling like two large, ugly sea creatures. "Come. We must alert the other Heads of Houses. You’d better put that Cloak back on."

    She marched toward the door, and as she did so she raised her want. From the tip burst three silver cats with spectacle markings around their eyes. The Patronuses ran sleekly ahead, filling the spiral staircase with silvery light, as Professor McGonagall, Harry, and Luna hurried back down.

    Along the corridors they raced and one by one the Patronuses left them; Professor McGonagall’s tartan dressing gown rustled over the floor, and Harry and Luna jogged behind her under the Cloak.

    The Battle of Hogwarts

    The enchanted ceiling of the Great Hall was dark and scattered with stars, and below it the four long House tables were lined with disheveled students, some in traveling cloaks, others in dressing gowns. Here and there shone the pearly white figures of the school ghosts. Every eye, living and dead, was fixed upon Professor McGonagall, who was speaking from the raised platform at the top of the Hall. Behind her stood the remaining teachers, including the palomino centaur, Firenze, and the members of the Order of the Phoenix who had arrived to fight.

    [Harry raised his wand, but dementors could bring a dull hopelessness, he felt as if his soul had already half left his body…] A hundred dementors were advancing, gliding toward them, sucking their way closer to Harry’s despair, which was like a promise of a feast…

    He saw Ron’s silver terrier burst into the air, flicker feebly, and expire; he saw Hermione’s otter twist in midair and fade; and his own wand trembled in his hand, and he almost welcomed the oncoming oblivion, the promise of nothing, of no feeling…

    And then a silver hare, a boar, and a fox soared past Harry Ron, and Hermione’s heads: The dementors fell back before the creatures’ approach. Three more people had arrived out of the darkness to stand beside them, their wands outstretched, continuing to cast their Patronuses: Luna, Ernie, and Seamus.

    "That’s right," said Luna encouragingly, as if they were back in the Room of Requirement and this was simply spell practice for the D.A. "That’s right, Harry…come on, think of something happy…"

    "Something happy!" he said, his voice cracked.

    "We’re all still here," she whispered, "we’re still fighting. Come on, now…"

    There was a silver spark, then a wavering light, and then, with the greatest effort it had ever cost him, the stag burst from the end of Harry’s wand. It cantered forward, and now the dementors scattered in earnest, and immediately the night was mild again, but the sounds of the surrounding battle were loud in his ears.
