Jinxes are a part of darker magic and one of them seven known spell types.
Stress Jinx Edit
A spell invented by a Black family ancestor which affects the caster as bad as the recipient. It was based on experiments with Dementors. The spell enhanced anxiety in the target towards things the target was already anxious about, and was undoubtedly dark magic of the most insidious kind, slowly worming itself deep into the victim over multiple applications. It took a long time to wear off.
