The Avifors Spell (Avifors) is a transforming spell that could be used to change the target into a bird, flock of birds or occasionally a flock of bats with a vivid flash of blue light.
"Avifors" can, at times, be a very complicated spell and some beginning Hogwarts students are known to struggle with it. One student nearly failed the class when he proved unable to transform objects into anything more than eggs. His cousin bragged about this.
When used in an offensive manner, a jet of blue light will shoot from the witch or wizard's wand, erupting upon hitting the target and solidifying them into a bird, a flock of birds, or more rarely, a flock of black bats. These bats can be controlled by the caster, although they may also fly away.Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban PC Game texture files next to the used SVSlapifors and SVSdraconifors spell symbols.
This charm was learned in first year and revised in second year Transfiguration class with Professor Minerva McGonagall, and was included in The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2 by Miranda Goshawk.
