The terms ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Magic’ go hand in hand. In the Harry Potter series created by J. K. Rowling, magic is depicted as a supernatural force that can be used to override the usual laws of nature. The small percentage of humans who are able to perform magic are referred to as witches and wizards, in contrast to the non-magical muggles. Magic is a supernatural force that can alter the fabric of reality at fundamental levels. The ability to use magic is a hereditary trait passed down from a person's ancestors, which allows witches and wizards to practise witchcraft and wizardry.
"I can make things move without touching them. I can make animals do what I want without training them. I can make bad things happen to people who are mean to me. I can make them hurt if I want to..."
—Young Tom Riddle describes his magical skills
