The Cruciatus Curse, also known as the Torture Curse, causes the victim unimaginable pain. It doesn't actually injure the victim, and leaves no physical marks behind. But it has been known to drive it's victims to madness. A victim of the Cruciatus Curse is essentially helpless as long as the caster maintains the spell. The victim will writhe in agony, most likely screaming if their voice doesn't choke up. This curse cannot be countered or deflected. It will pass right through Shield Charms. It can be evaded, or the casting can be interrupted, but once cast, there is no defense against it. This is one of the three Unforgivable Curses, and is subject to the rules governing those spells.
