Effect

Creates a Portkey

"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 a charm used to transform an ordinary object into a Portkey.

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.

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]
