The Boggart is a family companion who can be as wildly entertaining & bizarre as they are protective & swift in their aid. They are considered household spirits as they are documented primarily in dwellings and rarely in the wild. They like to play innocent (albeit annoying) pranks such as making things disappear, malfunction, and go haywire. Their pranks aren't deadly or cause any real harm but they can become tediously annoying if you don't set down some house rules.
A Boggart becomes loyal to a family, not a home, and they follow their family wherever they go. No matter where you are your Boggart is with you. NEVER give your Boggart a name as this angers them and calming a Boggart can be a very lengthy and problematic issue.
As spirit companions Boggarts are watchful guardians for a family and become protective of everyone it in; including other spirits and pets. They are lively and energetic companions who enjoy making the most of their time with their family. They can appear in many different forms; from human-like, monster-like, or brilliant orbs of light.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Boggart is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Boggart under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Place the vessel of the Boggart in a dark enclosure (pitch black is best) for at least 12 hours, they become subdued and submissive. This is a secret that my husband spent countless hours and experience to realize and no one outside of our family circle knows this secret so please keep it to yourself and realize sharing this piece of importance is a symbol of trust. Only use this technique if you feel the Boggart is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.
