Transfiguration

Effect

Transforms one species into another

Trans-Species Transformation[1] was a sub-branch of transformation magic in which one organism is transformed into something a different species.

NatureEdit

Trans-Species Transfiguration is one of the most difficult sub-branches of Transfiguration, the only noted sub-branch to be more difficult is human Transfiguration.

It is probable that Cross-Species Switches are an example of Trans-Species Transformation, due to the similarity in their names. If this is so, then Transforming Spells must be adapted to perform Trans-Species Transformation[2].
