In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Scorpius's Patronus takes the form of his best friend, Albus, if I recall correctly. Isn't a Patronus supposed to take a form of an animal or creature? So, how did his take the form of Albus?

  • wait what? I don't remember this at all, and I can't find anything that confirms this? are you sure that his Patronus was Albus?

  • It's from the Cursed Child.

  • I don't believe he even had a Patronus?

    Are you sure this is the case? Did you maybe read some fan fiction or fan theory based on The Cursed Child? I don't recall this at all, and I can't find it on the wiki.

    I don’t think a false premise makes a question unclear.

I can't say I know much about Cursed Child, but a quick search for the word "patronus" in a PDF of Cursed Child turns up six results (seven if you add "patronum"), none of which even mention Scorpius casting one let alone that it took the form of Albus. So I don't think this would present a conflict with the assumption that a patronus must be an animal (which we already have a question about).
