The Patronus Charm, which is cast by saying the words "Expecto Patronum," is one of the most powerful defensive charms that a wizard could use. Once the incantation is said, a powerful blast of energy projects from the wand and towards the target. Specifically said to defend oneself against Dementors and other dark creatures, the charm serves as a last resort of defense.
Many witches and wizards are unable to produce a Patronus because of the difficulty level associated with the spell. Most of the Patronus charms exist in animal form, and while many of them are familiar animals that we see while walking down the street, there are a few of them which are not as common.
There are also witches and wizards whose Patronus can take the form of other peoples' own based on how much they loved the person like that of Severus Snape's for Lily Potter's and Nymphadora Tonks for Remus Lupin.
