An Obscurus or Obscurial is the manifestation of suppressed magical ability of a magical child which takes the form of a cloud of black substance, similar to smoke. Being an uncontrollable dark force, the Obscurus will attack and destroy everything in it's path while in mass form and then vanishes into thin air.
Derived from Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.



Suppressed emotions,

And magical properties,

Causing internal destruction,

Death on the verge,

Anger accumulating,

Reaching the limit.

Bursting out,



Eradicating everything that stands in the way,

Before vanishing,

Returning to human form.

A weak human,

Building hatred,




Crying inside,


Begging for help,

Begging to be saved,

Wanting to be loved,

But not.

Dying eternally,

Confiding in none,

Wishing to be normal.

Glowing with hatred,


Slaughtering those whom he hated,

Killing all,

Leaving no traces,

But victims and rubble.

An Obscurial,

a salvation,

But also a sin,

Releasing what is known not,

Letting it use this body,

For a vicious break-out.

Yet after all this destruction,

He returns as a mortal,

As man.
