Dementors are the prison guards in Harry Potter and the Prisoner in Azkaban. They keep the evil wizards in prison. Dementors drain away hope and happiness. They are employees of the Ministry of Magic.
In Harry Potter and the Prisoner in Azkaban the Dementors guard Hogwarts. Mischief abounds the school. A Dementor attacks Harry Potter on his return to the school.
Dementors wear cloaks. Their hands are grey and scabby. They have no eyes. The eight foot evil characters do not walk, they slither.
Wizards and Muggles go insane when Dementors are in their presense for a period of time. The Ministry of Magic permits them to give the Dementor's Kiss to prisoners. This so-called kiss takes the receiver's soul.
The Patronus Charm will drive the Dementors away. If a person (Muggle or Wizard) is mildly attacked, a piece of chocolate can revive the person.
Unfortunately, the Ministry of Magic lose control of the Dementors. Lord Voldemort converts them to his side. The Dementors become Death Eaters. The Dementors go wild. They attack Harry and Dudley in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, they are wrecking havoc everywhere.
Rufus Scrimgeour, Minister of Magic, is trying to capture them in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. They will soon be prisoners in Azkaban where they were once guards.
