"Lapifors, the transformation of a small object into a rabbit"
Hermione Granger[src]

The Lapifors Spell[2] (Lapifors[1][2]) is a transfiguration spell that can be used to transform the target into a rabbit[1]; it works best on smaller artefacts such as statues, salamanders[1] and cats[2].

History

This charm is learned in the third year Transfiguration class at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, taught by Professor Minerva McGonagall[2]. She set up an obstacle course to be completed using this and the Draconifors Spell, and one of the questions in the final exam in June of 1994 concerned this spell[2].

Effects

Once performed, the caster has the ability to control the rabbit in question, directing its movements in a similar manner to the Piertotum Locomotor spell[2].

Practitioners

Etymology

From Latin "lepus", meaning "hare", with the -fors suffix attached as with most transforming spells.
