"For a moment the kettle trembled, glowing with an odd blue light; then it quivered to rest, as solidly black as ever."
—Description[src]

Portus is the incantation to a charm used to transform an ordinary object into a Portkey. Since creating Portkeys are restricted by the Ministry of Magic, the usage of this spell also requires permission. This was the subject of a question of the Theory of Charms O.W.L. in 1996[1]

Effect Edit

Immediately after casting, the target will glow bright blue, as the Portkey does when it is ready, but after a few seconds it will return to its normal colour.
