The Seize and Pull Charm (Carpe Retractum) is a charm that creates a retractable, magical rope made of light. This rope can be used to pull objects within a certain distance towards the caster, or to pull the caster toward whatever they affix the spell to. It is generally used on inanimate targets, although it can be used on plants or animals.


From Latin carpe, meaning "seize", and retractum, meaning "remote".
