Re: Why is an Inferi so feared?

And good luck taking a moment when a inferi is anywhere near you. You may have trouble thinking logically and react instinctivly and run or freak out.

No disrespect is meant by this post.

I think a few people are getting Inferi mixed up with zombies.

From the little we see of an Inferi, when DD and Harry are at the cave, we can deduce that:-

They are magically re-animated corpses. Quicker moving than "zombies".


Their capablities would rest upon their master. Voldemort a very powerful wizard can make them do all sorts, as we see in the lake. Jumping out of water, trying to pull Harry in the water, and succeeding in doing so with Regulus.
