An entropy curse, sometimes called Malocchio, or Evil Eye, is a dark spell, often used in a ritual, which alters the probability of death. 

DescriptionEdit

Whoever sends the Evil Eye must have some means of directing the magic at a target: Hair, nail clipping, blood are the most common. Sometime a lttle doll dressed like the victim or a good photo can be used. The other part is the sender has to gather up the energy to make it happen. A curse that strong would need a lot of work gathering raw magic in one place and then it woul have to be molded, shaped into its desired result. That kind of discipline is rare.[1]

Harry uses the metaphor of a cosmic vending machine: an outside power offers to give you something if you fulfill a certain sequence of events.[2][3] Another one he uses is: you have to load the gun, aim it and pull the trigger.[4]
