Effects: Take on the appearance of another person
Users: Penelope Gardiner

Shapeshifting is the abilty to shift into another person.


The user can trick anyone to think that they are someone else. When a witch or warlock uses this power before and after they shift into another person it looks like smoke washes over their entire body. Shape shifting does have a weakness when using this power the user's eyes are an unnatural shade of green and can be a give away to other witches to know that they are a shapeshifter.
