A Horcrux is a powerful object in which a Dark wizard or witch [attacker] has hidden a fragment of his or her soul [code] for the purpose of attaining immortality [persistence].

Creating a Horcrux gives one the ability to anchor their own soul [code] to earth[environment], if the body [process] is destroyed.
