Transformation (a.k.a. Transubstantial Transfiguration[1]) is the name given to a branch of Transfiguration that focuses on deforming the physical features of an object. It is not to be confused with Trans-species Transformation, though that is a type of transformation.

Nature

Transformation is the first branch of Transfiguration that students will learn at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, begining with Match to needle in first year and progressing from there. It contains the following sub-groups all of which overlap with each other to varying degrees): human Transfiguration, defined by and named for the target being a human being; Switches, which simultaneously exchange features between organism; and the aforementioned Trans-Species Transformations, which refer to transformations that change organisms from one species to another.

Methods

Transformation can be achieved in a number of different ways, namely: Transforming spells[2], Animagi, Metamorphmagi and Lycanthropy.
