Welcome to Harry Potter Answers. What would you like to know?

The patronus charm is used to defend your self against dementors. A proper patronus takes place of an animal, but an improper patronus charm may just appear as a silvery wisp, or as silvery smoke/fog. It is useful in the third book because it saves Harry and Sirius from receiving the dementor's kiss which sucks out your soul.

hope this is what your looking for if not sorry
