The animagus transformation is a part of the transfiguration branch and allows one person to transform into their inner animal.

Occurence Edit

The transformation is done extensively by purebloods or higher ranked halfbloods in every political faction in Magical Britain, though usually done after school. The exceptions are James Potter, Sirius Black and Harry's current harem. In Africa, where wandless magic is more dominant, the animagus transformation is taught even as early as to school students.[1] Additionally there are known and living cases of magical animagi.

Finding the inner animal Edit

You put a mandrake leaf for a month into your mouth with the help of a sticking charm.[2] With the leaf in your mouth you build a special mindscape for your inner animal and after some weeks you'll learn what your inner animal is when it does appear in the scape. During the month, the potential animagus, is extremely clumsy due to the adapting to the inner animal and shows special traits publicly the inner animal does in the wildlife.[3]

Changing the inner animal Edit

The Lovegood family knows of a ritual which allows you to change your inner animal. You maybe need at least two persons for the ritual and a bone of the animal you want to transform into or of a similar size compared to what you change your inner animal into.[4]

Transformation Edit

It takes years of work to transform yourself into your inner animal. You transfigure your body parts one by one over the years and you have to learn how to behave like the animal you are transforming into.[5]

Animagus ritual Edit

Main article: Animagus ritual

A faster method to learn to become an animagus is to use a ritual with Phoenix ashes which projects to one's mind how the inner animagus lived his whole life within seconds, thus skipping the slow transfiguration of its own body parts. It also needs seven people to work correctly, who will have to get naked in barrels full of ash. Harry further theorised that the Weasley twins could join in one barrel and could become a fusioned animagus, or die trying.[6]
